Mondays with Crosby



At 11:24 am, Crosby Fox turned 2 years and 40 weeks old!!!  And what a fun week it was!  Once again,  Uncle Ken and Aunt Dot opened their BEAUTIFUL home in Sea Island, Georgia for our family and friends.  The weather was pretty well perfect!  The rain showers held off for the evenings.  During the day, the sun was bright and shinning.  As Crosby likes to say, "Look...the sun is working!!!"    

We attempted a walk around the pier on St. Simons on day but it was super hot.  I did manage to snap a picture of the little man sitting on one of the most beautiful trees I have ever seen...

I can only imagine how old this tree is.  The branches grow down, towards the ground and then come back up.  Some of the branches even lie on the ground before stretching back up toward the sky.  Just beautiful!

We spent A LOT of time at the beach and in the pool.  Being that our trip was later in the month of September, I was a little worried that it would be too cold to swim.  NOT the case!  The water felt great. Luckily, I packed a bag full of toys for the little ones to play with.  I learned that cups are a must have thanks to our weekend visit with the Gants.  Corey, we spent lots of time making "tea" and "lemonade"...
Miss Eva was in on the fun too.  Looking so cute in her monogrammed seersucker bathing suit...
Of course there was a lot of time for Blake to toss Crosby up in the air.  A favorite pool time activity...
He gets so...
HIGH!!!  And we wonder why he is as wild as a buck?!?!
Happy little fish...
Crosby always hugs the concrete dogs at the entrance of Animalia.  I once told him that they never get any attention and he should give them a hug.  Now he does it religiously.  Same thing for the 4 lions that spray water from their mouths.  They never get any love.  That is until Crosby comes to town...
Loving pool time...
We attempted to take pictures of our kiddos at the beach.  Yeah.  They weren't really into sitting for pictures...
In case you can't read it because he wouldn't sit still, it says "Crosby"!
We like to break things up when we are at the beach.  We cook some nights and let others cook for us the rest of the time!  The boys did a great job grilling up burgers...
We did the usually bike ride around the island.  So fun.   Good thing we had Crosby there to help pump up all of the tires...
Crosby was super excited initially...
Then he realized he had to share.  Not his strong suit these days!!!
Beautiful Sea Island Drive...
Bike train...
Jessica, Blake and the wagon train...
Wes is back there too!
We finally managed to get a family shot on our last night.  We were NOT ready to leave...
Pretty sure the Edenfields weren't ready to leave either!

We had a fabulous week at the beach.  Crosby was a little* on the whiney side this week.  *The word "little" is an understatement.  Apparently, he has developed a dislike for his clothes.  He is opposed to wearing the shortall/jon jon.  "I not like this shirt, Mommy!!! I not gonna wear this..." (said with the most whiney tone possible)  He only wore them 90% of the time this summer.  Why is he all of a sudden opposed?  I hate to tell him but he is not gonna win this battle!

While I am at it, he also has an aversion to my hair being pulled back into a pony tail.  "Mommy, your hair down!!!" (also said in the most whiney voice possible)  The child cannot stand it when my hair is pulled back.  He notices it first thing when I walk into a room.  So bizarre.  Although, cousin Charlotte is the same way about Anne Claire's hair!?!  Maybe it is genetic?

So today, we are back into the ole routine.  We headed back to school and it could not have gone worse. I am REALLY not a fan of this new separation anxiety business we are in the middle of.  Something has got to give or this momma is going to lose her mind.  As soon as I pry him off of my neck,give him to the teacher and walk around the corner, he quiets down.  But man, getting to that point is enough to make me want to throw my hands in the air and give up.  I am ready to just pull him out altogether.  Sigh...

I will leave you with a few videos from the week.

Absolutely WILD at the beach...

Singing, swimming, little fish!
