Crosby is 21 months old!
It’s been “monkey see, monkey do” around our house lately. Kenley has been doing so well with swimming and jumping and diving into the pool, which results in Crosby thinking he’s really good at doing all of those things too. He has made a habit of just jumping in off the side of the pool even if no one is watching, which is always fun… or not. In all seriousness, he is doing a great job of swimming, but he definitely still needs some work. It doesn’t stop in the pool either, Crosby will mimic anything that Kenley does, good or bad.
This little guy is such a sweetheart. He loves to cuddle and will walk up to you and give you a kiss on your leg. We get reports from his teachers that he loves sharing, he minds his own business most of the time, and he loves giving hugs. On the other hand, whenever he knows he’s in trouble, he will come over to you for a big hug and says “hi mommy” or “hi daddy” in the sweetest little voice and the with the sweetest little smile. Little booger.
His vocabulary is really taking off, he is repeating everything and is stringing together 2-3 words at a time. His words aren’t as clear as Kenley’s at this age, but we can usually understand what he’s saying. Our favorite right now is when he wants to say “where did it go?” but it just comes out as “go?” with his arms out to the side all confused. It’s pretty cute. What is not as cute is when we are stopped in the car at a red light and he’s screaming “GO!!” like we are choosing to sit there and wait.
