Mondays With Crosby

Somebody is getting too big for his britches!! This was one of the only outfits that truly fit Crosby well when he came home. The pants don't look so bad when he is all scrunched up. But once he kicks those legs out straight...it is pretty clear! And the shirt speaks for itself. When you have to sag the pants to accommodate for leg length, only to reveal half of the belly, you know it's time to place this one in retirement. It makes me want to cry. I want him to get bigger for health's sake but I want him to stay small for mine!




We took Crosby to the vet clinic on Saturday for a weight check. He was up to 6 lbs and 1/2 oz! We are getting to see more and more of his blue eyes every day. Today he has shared them with us for nearly 6 hours!!! He has finally started to wake up a little more. I know his vision is limited but it sure is sweet to have him looking up at me when I talk.

Just a random picture of us. I had to be selfless with this post. I am used to making sure I look decent in the picture. Well, this was the LEAST flattering of me but I thought Crosby looked pretty sweet. It's all about Crosby now!!!
I am working on a few posts so more to come later this week!

I cannot wait to see that little peanut on Saturday!!! I think Dan is going to hide out in the driveway at Sonja's so he can see him, too! And as far as the picture of you goes, you look happy, and that is all that matters!

We are over the top with joy for you and your family. We have a little something for you...I will get your phone number from Matthew and Carina. They told us that they absolutely loved seeing you and the baby. God Bless you all - and we will be in touch soon. Judi

Audrey used to fall asleep on her changing table too. A sleeping baby is a growing baby!

Danielle- You ALWAYS look great but I had to LOL about your "selfless" pic- you will see time and again w/ that sweet boy that it is truly all about him now! I remember feeling the same way about some of those first few weeks of pics w/ Natalie. It does make the ones where I thought BOTH of us looked good that much more special though. :)

Hi Danielle!
Crosby's getting so big - what a cutie with those big eyes!!!! BTW you don't look bad at all - actually quite good considering the lack of sleep and stress you've been through!!! You don't know how many times I've driven to work with no makeup on because I forgot, or smelled something "funny" as I was walking into work just to find that my shirt was covered in spit-up!!!!
