12 Days of Cyrus: It Takes Two

This is a chronicle of my baby boy's first year of life. One post for every month. Missed the first one? You can read it here.

Month two brought very little change in the little man's life. He went to his first LSU basketball game and got loved on by his sister constantly. Harper barely spoke, but one word that she said as clear as day was, "Bubba!" It was a sweet time of learning how to be a family of four.

Thankfully, Cy (mostly) loved all the hugs.

12 Days of Cyrus: ...One More Time

Perhaps you recall, or maybe not, that I did a series a while ago documenting my girl Harper's first year of life. I so enjoyed reliving that year through the posts that I thought I would do it again with my sonny boy.  So to recap, I'm going to post for every month of Cy's life. Please keep all hands and feet inside the car as we take a ride down memory lane.

Cyrus Andrew, like his sister, decided he'd had enough of the womb before his due date. He made his appearance just days after his dad came home from a trip and a week and half before we expected. The best way I can describe the first month is frozen. Now before you start singing, "Let it Go," in your head, I mean that it was a month of snow days! We spent the first two weeks cuddled in front of the fireplace to keep warm.  I didn't hate it. This is what it looked like.

I know I'm biased, but he was just the most delicious little boy.

Christmas was sweet. Harper and Cy got to see everyone in their family and we celebrated Jesus coming near to us. Sadly, Christmas was also sick. Harper got it first then passed it to her brother who gave it to Dad. So our holiday was looked a lot like that and included rushing home to get to the doctor. 

And here's another one, just so you know that we did, in fact, celebrate Christmas. 

I can't believe this year is already over. Another December is fading, with the hope of a new year rising. Documenting our year was fun and, honestly, kept me from letting it all pass me by. I'm glad you came along for the ride and I hope you are, too!

This sweetness is brought to you by middle-of-the-night food poisoning. My kids have pretty much always been great sleepers and hardly get sick. So this was a double whammy, but I will never complain about snuggling this face.

All boy, this one. Fearless, reckless, funny, and compassionate. I love everything about him.

Ice cream is serious business for Harper. Dessert is the best part of any meal for her. 

Little brother life means you don't always know what's going on your head. In this case, it's a play kitchen skillet.

Christmas has come to the Griffin house! Harper loved decorating the tree with us (and Cy loves un-decorating the tree...)
She, however, did not love the lighting of the big Christmas tree downtown. See instagram for proof. 

Cy also loves selfies. I mean, who wouldn't want to look at that face?

This girl is a double portion of joy. Just as God spoke before she joined our world. She loves new things and can make everything fun! 

Cy wants to do everything his big sis does. Well, he mostly wants to eat and drink everything she's eating or drinking. Thankfully, she loves to share ;)

Christmas is coming to the blog next week! So don't be a stranger!
