Well, I am back after a few month hiatus and life is definitely new in every way! Cyler Michael-Anthony Roman is here! He was born on July 27th at 5:29 pm right on time - on his exact due date! He measured up at 7 lb. 8 oz. and was 19 3/4 inches long.....at his 2 week check up he had already gained a full solid pound! He is a little eater and is already looking chunkier than his brand new baby self. Chris and I are already so in love and can't believe that we made such a perfect little guy. Along with his superior eating habits, he seems to be a good little sleeper...at night at least. During the wee morning hours and on through the afternoon he sleeps a lot less than should be expected from a brand new baby but he is happy and not usually cranky and has been an amazing baby so far! We feel so so blessed.
Grammie Carol got to come visit for a few short days from August 8th to the 11th and we were very very sad to see her go. We were so glad she got to see and meet CyCy when he was so brand new though. We got to get some great pics of Cy with his Grammie and Mommy too and Uncle Ryan did an awesome job! The pictures are beautiful and show how simply beautiful our little guy is!
Yesterday, Cy smiled for the first time (just short of 4 weeks old) and ever since yesterday morning, Chris and I have been acting like complete goofballs trying to recreate the event. He loves it when we pinch his cheeks and play with his bottom lip - it gets a good smile if we make insanely annoying sound effects along with it. But, it is so cool to see him reacting to us and connecting with us in little ways. I can't believe he is 4 weeks old tomorrow - He is changing and growing so quickly it is a little sad - but so so very exciting!
So far, Cy has been out and about a ton - to the beach and pool with friends, to the park, on a shopping trip with Mommy and Grammie Carol and already countless trips to Target! He is already such a good boy I can't believe it - let's just cross our fingers that it sticks! :)
