Crosbi: 8 Months

What a month! I feel like I'm barely staying afloat. I'm definitely struggling with time management these days. I really thought working part-time to stay home with Crosbi would allow me to be somewhat of a supermom. I'm learning that's not the case. Thankfully it just takes one sweet smile from my little girl to help melt the stress. These days I'm needing lots of those smiles!

Crosbi, where do I start? This month has been a big one.

*You spent most of the month visiting family. You were sure sad to see them go.
*You are pulling up and getting into everything! If you find anything with a knob or handle, you are into it.
*Not only are you pulling up, you are beginning to stand on your own for a few seconds at a time.
*Because you're pulling up and standing, this month has been full of bumps and bruises. It's not easy for me to see you hurt, even if it is part of the process.
*The baby gate went up this month.
*You adore books. I hope this means you will love to read as you grow. I can't wait for us to have our devotional time together and bookstore dates.
*You are really into hair. You have liked playing with my hair for a long time, especially when I'm nursing you, but now a sure sign that you're tired is when you start twirling your own hair.
*Still my champion eater, your favorites these days seem to be fish, mac & cheese and black beans.
*You are trying so hard to say a few words. We get the occasional mama and dada. There's nothing better than hearing your sweet voice!

I'm not sure how it's possible, but I fall more in love with you as each day passes.


  1. Is she a little strawberry blonde? Those eyes!!!
    Owen does the same thing with my hair. He loves to run his hands thru it. I kinda like it too :)

  2. What an absolute doll! Always love hearing your accounts of motherhood :)
