Dinner with the Family

This evening Jason had to work late so, we decided to drive to Siloam Springs and meet my sister-in-law and nephew for dinner. It was really nice to be able to see them and hang out for a little while.
 Aunt Mel and Braxton, He was born in March, it is crazy to think how fast our children grow, I do not even want to think that in just a few months Cy will be this big.

 Rhett, Brandi, Stella, Morgan, Cy, Mallory, Braxton, and Lorena

Daddy Time

Jason gave Cy his first bottle this evening. I have to say that I am one lucky women that I have such a great husband and father for my children.

Slow down!

 OK time needs to slow down!
 Today Cy lost his cord!
 I just gave birth to him yesterday! How can this already be happening, this is way to fast, OK not really he is 10 days old but in my world I need it all to slow down, I need him to stay this way forever!
 Does he not have the longest toes, I love them

 Cinderella wanted to love on him some today.
 This photo makes me laugh, I made a new headband for Stella today and for some reason when I took this picture her eyes were larger than her whole face. This child makes me laugh, I love her.

Dr. Visit

 Today Cy had to go back to see Dr. Cadle for a weight check. I snapped some photos while we were waiting, I mean he is one of three of the cutest babies ever! Cy was 8 pounds 7 ounces at birth and when we took him last week to the Dr. he was down to 7 pounds 11 ounces. My milk has finally come in, but as of today he had only gained one ounce back. This is a little frustrating to me I have to admit, I am also a little hormonal so it makes me really sad also. I wish that I could just nurse my children and it go smooth but for some reason my body fails me and them. I just do not produce enough milk for my kids to grow and we have to end up supplementing with formula. It makes me sad but I am willing to do whatever is best for the kids. As of now I am still nursing but after each nursing session I am offering him a bottle of formula to top off what he gets from me. We go back on Tuesday to see were he is weight wise and re evaluate what we need to do nurse/bottle wise. I am hoping that he is starting to gain weight and that I will be  able to keep nursing for a while but I know that I will be OK if we have to go to formula full time. It has seemed like this afternoon that he was full after nursing because he would barely touch the bottle, not sure if that was because he was full or because he was not use to a bottle. We will just have to see what happens.

One on One

I am soaking up my one on one time with this little guy. Jason goes back to work on Friday and he has been wonderful about keeping Stella and Rhett busy so that I can rest and care for Cy. I have to admit I am getting a little nervous about being on my own with THREE kids, I am sure that it will be fine but it will be different and we will all have to adjust. Today I am soaking up my time with this little guy. 

Do they look a like?

I keep getting asked if Cy looks more like Stella or more like Rhett, well to be honest Rhett and Stella look a lot a like now, if you take away the hair there faces are lot alike but at birth I did not think they looked anything a like. So, that being said I have no idea who Cy looks more like, Stella or Rhett but here are photos from when Stella and Rhett were first born and you can decide for yourself who he looks more like at this point. I have a feeling as he grows and puts on some weight that he will end up looking like his big brother and sister just have different color hair! 
 Stella Emory 1 week old- for some reason I can not find the photos from the hospital on my computer! 8 pounds 1 ounce 20 inches
 Rhett Samuel- 1 day old 6 pounds 10 ounces 21 inches
Cyler Ward- 2 days old 8 pounds 7 ounces 20 3/4 inches
