Cyler is One!

Cyler Ward Skarsten
I can not believe that it was just a year ago that Daddy and I were at the hospital awaiting your arrival. I was so glad to finally have you on the outside, to hold you in my arms and realize that you were the perfect finish to our wonderful family. If have filled up our home with love and laughter. You have taught me so many things as a mommy, you have taught me that I can survive on very little sleep for months at a time, that schedules are for the birds, that I can lift mountains because if I can lift your weight a mountain can't weight that much more, that a smile can get me through a very rough day, that sometimes dishes, dusting, and laundry can wait but playing on the floor with you and your siblings is only going to happen right now. You are so relaxed and roll with the punches, it has made the adjustment from 2 to 3 kids so good for all of us. It has been such a busy year sense you were born, we have moved TWICE in a year but are finally settled in our home, you went through both moves like a champ! You still our not wild about being in the church nursery but our getting better about it. You have finally started to take a pacifier in the middle of the night instead of a bottle and are sleeping for at least 5 hours at a time which is way better than waking up every hour! You are wearing size 3T tops and size 2T bottoms. You just went to the Dr. and weighed in at 34 pounds and 4 ounces and are in the 145% for weight and our 32 inches long which puts you in the 99% for height. Cyler you are one big boy and we could not be prouder to call you our child, we love you so much!
