Fast forward fifteen years and here I am, an almost stay-at-home mom, loving every second of it. I've been a bit emotional lately as I think about how much Crosbi has grown. I'm often wiping away tears as Todd and I put her to bed. Some nights I could stay up all night holding her. Each day with her is the best day. Even days when she refuses to nap, spits up all over both of us right as we are walking out the door, has a diaper blowout so bad that I'm washing poo out of not just her clothes, but mine too, are the very best days. I wouldn't trade this season in my life for anything in the world.
My sweet four month old gets more beautiful everyday. She is feisty, that one. I have a feeling she's going to keep me on my toes!
- Weighing in at 16 pounds, 14.5 ounces and 26 inches long. "She's a whopper!" as my grandma says.
- She's really great at grabbing things. She'll grab just about anything you place in front of her now. Those things immediately go into her mouth.
- She's *this* close to sitting up on her own. She's still a little wobbly, and leans a bit too far forward, but I think she'll be sitting soon.
- Sleeping a fairly consistent 10 hours each night. We're still swaddling her. I'm nervous to start weaning her, but we need to do it sooner than later. Sigh.
- Like her father and I, Crosbi is going to love listening to people tell stories. She is really interested in hearing people talk. I took her to a meeting at work this week, and she sat as still as could be on my lap, watching each person talk as if she was following right along.
This past weekend we celebrated Crosbi's first Easter. Sunday morning I explained to her the importance of the Easter weekend. As we got ready for the day, we listened to Christ Is Risen and Glorious Day. I look forward to the day when Crosbi understands just how special Easter is and can say to me, "He is risen!"
