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.

She was trying to escape.
Did someone say there is going to be birthday cake?

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!

MN Trip: Visiting Nannie and Big Papa - Love Crosby

While Mollie and I were in town, our mommies thought it would be fun to take a quick trip to see Nannie and Big Papa at their house.  Auntie Kitty and mommy made sure that we each had our snack and water bottles for the visit.  They have a fun area outside where we could run around.  It was so much fun to see them!

Mollie was sharing her goldfish with Nannie
Big Papa was trying to get me to share my snack with him. Silly Big Papa.
Daddy, Big Papa and me!

MN Trip: Fun with my Cousins - Love, Crosby

COUSINS!  I got to spend a whole week with my two cousins, Mollie and Leo.  Let me start off by saying that I had so much fun with these two.  Mollie is my size, she likes to run around, play in Grammie's Tupperware cupboard, share toys, give kisses, play in the water, the list could go on and on. She is full of fun and energy, we had a lot of fun together.  Leo is a little smaller than I am, mom says that's because he's a baby.  He didn't play a lot with Molls and I, but we tried to play with him.  Mollie even pushed him in a stroller!

Grammie has some sweet toys!

Mollie was sharing.

I love bubble wands!
Hey look, there's water in here!
Day 2, now we have a swim suites on!
I love this table!
Grammie even had a little pool, I love the water.
Did you see all the space in here?
I can't get enough of this!
Cousin photo shoot: Guess who was a perfect model? Not the girls in the kitty shirts.
Let me out of here!

MN Trip: Up North - Love, Crosby

We'll howdy from the Land of 10,000 Lakes!

What and adventure.  Mommy, daddy and I flew on a plane to come and help Auntie Leanne while she was in the hospital.  (More on that later.) While we were in Minnesota, we road tripped it up to see my Grandma and Grandpa in Floodwood.  While we were there, we saw LOTS and LOTS of family.  Grandma and Grandpa even arranged a fun party for everyone to come and meet me. Mommy got to catch up with old friends and to show me off.  Those are her words, not mine.  Here are a few pictures to show you just some of my adventures. WARNING: mommy got a little carried away with the whole picture taking thing. There are A LOT of pictures to follow!

Love Y'all!
My new furry friend...
Just don't get to close...
Ah...way to close!
Thanks Grandma Lonna for saving me!
The weather was perfect for a walk.
I love my Grandma!
The cupcakes for my party.
