Cy: Twelve Months

My little Cy Man, You are not quite so little anymore. I can't believe it has already been a year since you were born.se pictures are from right as you turned 12 months, but as I'm writing this, you are actually 14 months old. At 12 months, you were ¬†still just crawling, but more often on hands and feet, a big bear crawl. At 13 months old, you learned to stand alone and just barely began to think about taking steps. You would take one or two. You only tried about once a day. And you could NOT … [Read more...]

After I cleaned your ears, you … [Read more...]

Cy: Ten Months

Sweet little man, This morning, you were pretty fussy. So we took your pictures with your Lovie-a soft square of giraffe print fabric that the Allen Birthing Center sent home with you when you were born.

Now whenever you get your Lovie, you put your thumb in your mouth right away and hold Lovie in your other hand. As you're falling asleep for a nap or … [Read more...]

Cy: Nine Months

Cyguy, The name of your game this month is move--go, go, go! I could not get one picture where you were laying still looking at the camera. You love to move.

You are crawling faster and faster, and getting your knees underneath you more often. You are pulling up and standing always and everywhere. You are starting to occasionally … [Read more...]
