Crosbi: 5 Months

It has been quite a month. Crosbi is growing and changing every day, but this month felt full of milestones. We have been so busy that I'm barely getting this post written before we enter Crosbi's sixth month. I could have sworn that I had already covered month five, but Todd was quick to point out that I hadn't. At least one of us is keeping track!

So before we officially cross the half-year mark (sigh), I'll give a quick recap on this past month.


*You are definitely showing your personality and I love it. I have no doubt that you're going to keep me on my toes. You have just the right amount of spunk and it's so fun getting to really know you.
*Belly laughs have been filling the house. I don't think I have ever seen your dad beam the way he does when he makes you laugh. You laugh in the bathtub, when daddy sings to you, and today you laughed hysterically when I shook a cup with ice. You're funny.
*You're eating solids! So far you have had oatmeal, bananas and sweet potatoes. We'll introduce avocados soon. I'm hoping you're a foodie like me and your dad.
*You're sitting up on your own like a champ. I've even had a few people stop me in public to tell me how cute you are sitting on your own. You have conquered shopping carts and restaurant high chairs.

*You want to crawl so badly. As soon as you got a handle on sitting, you were bouncing forward. If you could just figure out what to do with your legs, you would be unstoppable. I'm not ready for you to be mobile!
*You have been extra cuddly this month. Lots of hugs and kisses for me and daddy.
*You finally like being outside. It took awhile. Maybe you just didn't like having to sit in your car seat? Now that you sit in your stroller like a big girl, going on walks has become much more fun. Especially when we meet friends to walk at the zoo. You love the zoo!

As hard as it is for me sometimes to see you change and grow, this month has been a lot of fun.

I love you, my sweet girl.
