He has arrived!

39 weeks- it's go time!

Well, Cy came Wednesday at 1039am weighing 7lbs 7oz and 21 inches long! The dr was worried the last few weeks of my pregnancy about how small Cy measuring, well he blew us all away! My belly was smaller with Cy than with Peyton, but Cy was bigger. We had many sweet visitors at the hospital and the care was great!

Waiting to go to the OR

Proud daddy

7lbs 7oz 21 inches
My sister
My mom - Nana

My dad and step mom- Poppy and PG

In-laws- Papa and Mimi

Sister-in-law- Aunt Krissy
Papa, Chris, Uncle Glenn- Chris' brother

Cy has been a great baby, eats and sleeps and only cries to let us know he is hungry. I am sure it has a lot to do with our attitude and not being stressed out trying to figure out what to do with him and he doesn't seem to have any stomach issues like his brother did.

Speaking of his brother...Peyton has been so sweet! He talks to 'his baby Cy' as he calls him and loves on him and kisses him. Peyton doesn't seem to dislike him or us, I can see him being more attached to Chris right now, but that is understandable. I am dealing more with the baby so he wants his daddy's attention. Peyton will still come and lay on me and hug me, which I love and am glad he doesn't resent me for bringing this baby home.

Wednesday is the big day!!!!! Around 10 o'clock we will meet our sweet new baby boy! I can't wait! I can't wait to see what he is going to look like, I can't wait to see how much Peyton is going to love him, I can't wait for Cy to meet all our sweet and loving family and friends that has prayed for him since we announced his coming, and oh yeah I can't wait to get my body back! Haha!
I just wanted to share this sweet moment with you all. I went to the doctor last friday and got our last sonogram done. Peyton wanted to hold the picture. He looked at it for a few seconds and he excitedly said, "Mommy, Cy is pretty!" He melted my heart and I just wanted to cry. We started pointing out Cy's ear and nose and chin. Later Peyton wasnted to show Chris Cy's picture. He told Chris the samething and proceded to show him his ear and nose and all the other parts we talked about. Moments like this make me more excited to watch my precious boys love each other and become best friends!

38 weeks!

So....I made it! I only have 2 more days. I have done a terrible job tracking this pregnancy for those of you that I don't see at leats once a week. You have begged for belly shots and I just haven't done it. Honestly, I forgot! Well, and I don't want my big belly displayed every week either...haha.

Chris and I went out for our 'last night' Saturday night. Some friends were turning thirty and they threw themsleves a birthday party. It brought back memories of good ole Gc&SU! yes, Krisal the dancing from GC&SU. It is so funny to think back and realize the things we did, we were so crazy and just didn't give a care who was watching. I of course, did not dance around and bounce Cy but I enjoyed watching and visiting with a sweet friend and sister-in-law! Our husbands I think had the most fun with catching up and talking like girls.

Here are some pictures I remembered to take. Hopefully you can see why wonderful round fully big belly. It was dark so Krissy had a hard time seeing what she was getting. And yes Krisal this is mostly for you ;o)

Random catching up........

wow...that picture is terrible!

HAHA...that first picture makes me laugh. It looks like I was making P take the picture but I was not holding him against his will. I know the date says months ago but did anyone else ever do this when you were little on a rainy day. It was one of those days that rained ALL day long for a couple of days so we camped out inside. Peyton LOVED it!

He is a big boy now! Peyton has been in a big boy bed for a few months now and he loves it! He calls it his Thomas bed because of the bedding. We took him to the store and let him pick out whatever bedding he wanted and I think that was the trick for him. We needed the crib for Cy so we wanted to give Peyton as much time as possible to get rid of his attachment to it before he saw his little brother using it.

We went to Greenwood! Peyton and I took a day trip up to Greenwood, which is only about an hour from here, to visit a sweet friend from college. Peyton instantly bonded with her and I never doubted he would. She has such a sweet loving demeanor. I have really missed seeing her so I was glad we finally found a day to visit. She is living up there while her husband finishes his fellowship/residency whatever that lingo is for med school. I keeping hoping she is going to tell me that when he is done they are moving back to Augusta, but we shall see.


So I was asking a friend who is the craft queen what I should make for a little girl that was turning two and she gave me tons of great ideas! I finally decided on this!
I had so much fun making it and I had a great helper and model. Here are the steps in pictures...

Ok so the model didn't really care to be in it and I hope his daddy doesn't see this but he is about the same size as the little girl we were giving it to. I will have to get a picture of her in it and post it. It sure was fun making girlie things! Happy Birthday Greer! Hope you liked your tutu!

Another crafty project is something for baby Cy's room. His room doesn't have much of a theme, just colors. I have seen the idea of framing scrapbook paper and also monogramming in frames but I don't remember specifically which blog I have seen it. It seems to be the 'thing' to decorate with right now. I was so excited about making this that I forgot to get a before picture of the old frame I used. Chris picked it up from the art dept at school. I spray painted and them just added some fun scrap booking paper and cut out a W. I don't really like how plain it look with one random black bold W but once Cy gets here I am going to add pictures of him and our family. Here is the project so far and some more pictures of the sweet little boys room.

This is something my sister gave me and I LOVE it! She is also very crafty!

So Cy's room is all ready for him to use it! Only 2 more weeks until he arrives!
