Cy: Seven Months

Dear Cy, Each month gets more and more fun. You have such a sweet personality. We love you so much. This month was the dreaded sleep-training month. After you turned 6 months old, we started teaching you to sleep in your own crib. We chose a Wednesday night to start. The first night you did great. The second night was the hardest, you were awake and fussing/crying off and on in the middle of the night for an hour and a half. Then you fell asleep, but only for a bit before you woke up … [Read more...]

Cy: Six Months

Cyguy, You are at such a classic baby stage. You can go everywhere by schooching on your belly and pulling with your arms. You love being able to reach and move and grab more things. Sometimes, you even use your new ability to schooch over to my feet and cry to be picked-up. It's pretty cute. At your six month appointment, you were 26.75 inches long (55%) and weighed 17 pounds (39%). You had your first cold recently. I felt so bad that there was so little I could do to help you feel … [Read more...]

Cy: Five Months

Dear Cy, You are so much more active moving lately. You like to plow and push with your feet to try to figure out how to move. Sometimes, when you are being held, you get so wiggly and squirmy that it's really hard to keep holding you because you fight and flop and writhe to go places. Speaking of going places, you started MDO this month. You had a great first day and a somewhat fussy second day. Mama misses you and loves you so much. I'm so excited to come and pick you up and can't wait … [Read more...]

Cy: Four Months

Little Cy Guy, You turned 4 months old last week. As usual, you are a delight. Toys have been a big new thing this month. You can really hold a teething ring and chew on it. You pull everything you can get to your mouth. And you drool a lot. You are a champ at rolling from your back to your stomach, but once you get there you don't seem to remember how to get back and sometimes fuss because you don't like that position as much. You still love to talk and smile. This month you … [Read more...]

Cy:Three Months

Cy, It's so fun to start seeing glimpses of your little personality. You smile so easily. You are generally happy and easy going. You and I have had some great conversations lately. You love to smile and coo at me while I talk to you. Sometimes you start the conversation. You even like to try to smile and coo while nursing which is the cutest thing ever. You have really enjoyed your play gym this month. You are definitely intentional with your batting and grabbing now. I love your … [Read more...]
