At 11:24 am, Crosby Fox turned 1 year and 23 weeks old!!! And we spent this day AT HOME!!!We arrived back in the good 'ole USofA on Saturday at 7:00 pm. We made it to our house at 2:22 am Sunday morning. Needless to say, we spent the past 2 days recovering from a 9 day vacation, if you count the drive to and from Atlanta.
He slept during most of our flight home. Wouldn't you know he woke up just in time to "fill his britches." And of course it was during the most turbulent part of the trip. I was trying my best to stand up on my own 2 feet while keeping him from rolling off the changing table into the toilet. I had to supress my desire to freak out over the bumpy ride. I had to take one for the team and put on a brave face for the little one. "No, mommy is not scared out of her mind right now..."
So I have a little prayer request. May seem silly but I am doing it anyway. We were carrying about 500 items through the airport and managed to lose a carry-on somewhere between Concourse E and Baggage Claims. As of today, it has not been reported to lost and found. The reason I ask for prayer, is because there are 2 sentimental things in there to both Lucy and myself. We are just hoping it is in the hands of someone with a compassionate heart who will return it to us...
Since we have been gone, and really since we have been home again, Crobsy has really started to say more words. A few of the latest:
Elevator, Juice, Help, Garbage Truck, Tractor, Milk, Egg
Of course they don't sound as clearly as I have them written but we know what he is saying. That's what counts...right??
Speaking of that garbage truck. They were late today. Wouldn't you know, they came at 2:30, right during the middle of his nap. As soon as I heard it, I ran upstairs to see if he would hear it. I thought I was in the clear...and then..."Cuck!!!!!" I had to snatch the wild-haired, diaper wearing kid straight out of bed and out the front door. He was thrilled. I had to get on to them for being so late. The guy on the back of the truck said he has a new driver. Greaat! I am hoping they get back on track REAL soon. I can't have them interupting his nap every Monday...even if he still slept 3 hours. I pefer the 3 1/2 or 4 he normally takes!!
I will post a few videos from the trip tomorrow...maybe...
