Crosby's 1st Thanksgiving Part #1

We had our very first family Thanksgiving. Tim, Crosby and I got on a plane as soon as I got home from school on Friday. It was a decent flight, considering Crosby had slept a total of 2 hours all day. Took a little snoozer on the flight to MN, she looked super cute laying across our laps. She has been such a great traveler!

While in Minnesota, we were blessed to visit with so many family members. Crosby got to love on a bunch of people! Warning: This is A LOT of pictures!

I Wanna Help

...clean my toes.
...feed myself.
...keep you warm and snugly.
...put lotion on after bath.
Mom says that I am getting to be such a BIG helper.

Typical Night at Our House

Every other night at our house is Crosby's bath night. She loves the water! Since her very first bath time, we've used this awesome over the kitchen sink baby bath tub. She started off in the hammock as a teeny tiny infant, she quickly out grew that. Tim is usually in charge of baths, he does a fantastic job at not getting water all over her face, something that I am great at doing. Now that we've introduced solid food, this is what a typical night looks like in our house.

1. Waiting SO patiently for her sweet potatoes! She loves them!

2. A spoonful goes in and some of it comes back out.
3. She is a eager eater! She frequently hums, and turns to get more quickly!
4. Post meal bath. She is a happy bather.
