Mondays With Crosby

At 11:24 AM, Crosby Fox turned 11 weeks old. Can you tell how big he is???? The puppy scale reads 11 pounds, 6.5 ounces!!! So, he has officially doubled his birth weight!!! What a big boy we have. We bought our first box of Pampers Swaddlers size 1 this week. He was given a bag a while back and we started using them at the end of last week. There is a pretty big jump in fit from the newborns to size 1. He had to wear Huggies newborns for a few weeks because they were larger than the Pampers Newborns and smaller and the Pampers Size 1. I'll be honest, I am glad he is back in the Swaddlers. They are so soft and smell so sweet...when they are clean that is! :)

Crosby had his second play date. This time he hung out with an older woman named Mary Michael. She is 7 months old and such a happy girl.

"Miss Danielle, he is starting to cry! "

"It's okay, Crosby!! I'm here."

"See, I made him happy!!"

She was so proud of herself! :)

Believe it or not, Crosby cries! He has the hardest time somewhere between 6-9. I want him to stay up as late as possible so he can sleep when we do!!! But he still requires 3, 2-4 hour naps a day!! He is going for 4-5 hour stretches some nights so that is nice. According to his pediatrician, he will have to pack on a few more pounds before he will make it all night. He said around 14 pounds babies can maintain their blood sugar level, which will allow them to sleep for longer periods. We'll see soon enough!

Happy boy in milk heaven

He may not be the "natural way," but he loves it any way he gets it!!!!

Finally, Crosby made a special trip to Gadsden last weekend. We went to shower Corey's babies with lots of love. We can't wait to meet Davis Hawkins and Henley Louise! Just a few more weeks...

I am so happy you actually got to make a little trip! After reading "the enemy" entry, I was fearful you may be quarantined for a while longer! These friends of yours sure have some great advice...I never knew there was so much to know about nursing/pumping/feeding! I wish I had some good advice to lend, but I have NO frame of reference for this one! All I can say is praise the Lord for chocolate and TLC when you need to relax! I also wanted to comment on the announcement and the gown...ADORABLE! Perfect attire and perfect picture! You are truely where and with who God perfectly prescribed! I'm so happy for you and Blake! XOXOXO~ Jill
