Mondays with Crosby


At 11:24 am, Crosby Fox turned 2 years and 12 weeks old!!!  It has almost been one week since his mom celebrated HER birthday!  I asked around for an appliqued "33" t-shirt to wear with a hot pink tutu and big, pink hair bow.  No one had one on hand!  So no frilly birthday pictures of me...this year!!
We did start out last Tuesday with a meal at Noshville's.  Just me and my boys.  Crosby wouldn't look at the camera but at least he smiled...
I kept requesting birthday kisses...
 And he held out for a while!
 But then he finally gave in and give his old mom a kiss!
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I bribed him with cupcakes from The Cupcake Collection!  I should have taken a picture of the beauties we came home with.  But we ate them too fast! Crosby request the "pink" one.  Hmm.  I had the peanut butter mousse and Blake had wedding cake.  Then we got a key lime pie just for the fun of it!  Oddly enough, Crosby knew exactly where we were when Blake pulled onto the street. "Cukcake Lection!!!  Cukcake Lection!!!"  Here we are in front of the tasty treats...
I had a great day celebrating with Blake and Crosby!  I loved hearing my little man sing "Happy Birthday" to me over and over!  I need to catch that on video. I don't even know how to phonetically spell it they way he says it.  It is pretty cute though!

Crosby was the recipient of a super duper surprise this week.  Charlotte and Anne Claire spent the night with us on Wednesday.  Let me tell you, we laughed so hard watching these two together!  They had soooo much fun chasing each other around the house.  Blake got it all started with this little trick...
 After they ran themselves silly, we decided they were ready for a cousins bath.  Crosby was so excited to share his bath toys with another person!  Charlotte wasn't so sure about it...
 I think she was a little concerned about the red water.  Who can blame her!?!  There were lots of kisses on Wednesday night...
 And choke holds...
 They were OUT like a light when we put them to bed.  But they were raring to go the next morning.  We threw Charlotte in the bed with Crosby and they found it awesome...
 Crosby had to show her how to "jump, jump, jump".  He is demonstrating, if you can't tell!!!
 And there were more hugs...
 And tackles!!  Charlotte sure puts up well with Crosby and his not so gently affection...
Along with every other family in Davidson County, we headed to the zoo on Thursday.  It was nuts.  We kinda forgot about spring break.  Charlotte didn't.  She was all about relaxing!  She was out before we made it past the gibbons...
 Sweet girl...
 Melissa, Margaret and Wells joined us for the adventure.  These two don't mind being in close quarters either!!!
Seeing how Crosby and Charlotte were up late the night before, Crosby was worn out by the end of our zoo trip.  He slept for 3 1/2 hours once we got home!

There is really no point to the next pictures.  Other than the fact that I was trying to get a picture of him in one of my FAVORITE spring outfits that is currently hanging in his closet.  Or is it lying right outside his door waiting to be hung?? Any way, you will see a better picture of this one of these days...
 Cause he wasn't having it yesterday!  You will just have to take my word for it when I say he looked adorable!!!  Although this picture does not fit that description...
 We had another gorgeous Spring day so we headed to "Daddy's work!!!"  Crosby loves running around the property.  He stopped to give all of the dogs a hug...
I am sure they felt loved!
I tried to follow him around in an attempt to catch a few cute pictures.  This one was pretty sweet...
And I managed to bribe him to look at the camera for a few seconds there.  I managed to get a few cute up close!  Miracle...
He looks so sweet and innocent!  Don't be fooled... ;-)
Then he headed of for a little rock climbing...
He thought that was pretty cool and he was proud of himself for reaching the summit...
Needless to say, they are not that big.  But we will let him think what he wants!
My big boy looking so...big...
 
What a cheese!!!
He loved running through the grass...
I would say this was a pretty good Monday!  He would definitely agree...

And just so I don't forget, Crosby is saying lots of funny things these days...

He pointed to tattoos  on a waitress' arms and said "Uh Oh!!!"   He said it every, single time she came to our table.  I didn't know if I should be embarrassed or if I should laugh.  She laughed so we all laughed too!

Tonight when I was rocking him before bed, he looked up at me and said, "Kiss me, Mommy."  I didn't understand him initially.  (probably had something to do with having a bubba in his mouth...)  So I had him repeat it.  I was pretty sure he said what I thought he said.  I verified, "Did you say, Kiss Me?"  He gave his standard response, "Okay!"  So I smiled a big 'ole smile and gladly kissed my boy on the forehead.  And nose.  And cheeks!!  He followed with, "I love you, Mommy."  Talk about precious...
