Congratulations Ross and Karly

The Happy Couple - Karly and Ross Tollgaard

Our Family
Last month we celebrated my brother Ross' wedding! We spent a long weekend in MN helping the happy couple celebrate their big day.  Karly a breath-taking bride and Ross a very handsome groom! Our little family was honored to be a part of their special day.  Crosby did a wonderful job walking down the aisle and Tim did a fantastic job as a reader!

Uncle Woss and Auntie Karly we love you!

Getting Big!


 Drinking soup...

 Sitting in a big girl chair...

 Rocking pig tails...

 Eating a chocolate chip cookie...


Touchdown (aka so big)...

Our little girl isn't so little anymore.  She's growing like a weed and talking up a storm (although we don't know what she's saying). Crosby now refers to me as "mom", no longer mommy. She a climber, runner, a great mommy to her babies, copy cat, signer, and giggler.  

We're quickly approaching 1.5 years...I'm not sure this "mom" can handle it.  

Halloween...a month late

Crosby was a cute little kitty for Halloween this year.  Surprisingly she rocked the tutu and cat ears like a champ.  She was such a good sport!

Water Table Time

Our make-shift water table.

You'll notice that one of her favorite "toys" is a measuring cup!

I love her little cheeks, notice the concentration.

Who knew water could be such a fun distraction?

Pure Joy

Can you say teething?

What mommy?

There was lots of yelling and splashing.

She is such a good sharer.

The look of wonder.

I love that you can see her figuring things out.  She has become quite the little problem solver.


Can you guess one of my new favorite foods?

One whole year!  Crosby Eleanor turned one on June 10th.  Everyone always said the days can be long, but the years are short.  How true those words are.  We've been on quite the adventure over this past year. Tim and I thank God for such a happy and healthy little girl.  We are so blessed to have her in our lives.  

We threw her a little birthday party on Saturday the 9th.  Grammie and Papa were in town to help us get ready for her party, as well as to help us celebrate.  They were a HUGE help and we could not have done it without them.  Crosby is one lucky lady to have so many people love on her!

I will post later with her 1 year old stats from the doctor along with our final monthly onesie pictures.

Our BIG 1 year old!
Love those deep brown eyes.
Grammie, Papa and the birthday girl
She was trying to escape.
Did someone say there is going to be birthday cake?
The shirt and tutu are from Auntie Kitty (Katie)
Ava and Crosby
So thankful for amazing friends who came to help us celebrate.  God has really blessed us with amazing people!
Pre-cake excitement!
I can't believe she's one...
Not loving it...
Trying to share...
I don't think any cake got into her mouth.  There will be plenty of time for sweets.
We had lots of helpers. 
She loves carrying around bags.
Thank you friends and family who were able to be here to help us celebrate Crosby's 1st birthday!
