Four Years Older

Crosby is four years old today! I know it seems like I say this every year, but I’m not sure how this is possible. He is quickly changing from a toddler to a little boy. He’s fun-loving, ornery, wild, and loves to give hugs.

The biggest change from in the last few months is that Crosby has started at a new school! This was an abrupt decision after the school year started, but we couldn’t be happier with the surprising turn of events. We love his new school, new teachers, and new friends. We had our first parent-teacher conference last week and he’s doing so well. The Gilbertson children thrive when they are in a routine and on a schedule. Crosby had been without a solid routine for majority of the summer and into the start of the school year and his behavior wasn’t great. After a few weeks getting into a good routine at his new school, he’s been doing so well.


I will let Crosby tell you a little bit about himself with our birthday interview.

Crosby is hilarious. Not a day goes by that Greg and I aren’t cracking up about something he does or says. He loves to give hugs and knows no stranger…though we frequently talk about stranger danger. He also loves Legos. He has a very creative mind and will build and re-build creations all day long. He’s also very symmetrical when he’s building with Legos. He will tell you all about the car, spaceship, rocket, boat, or plane that he’s built. He has a long list of things that he is going to do when he’s four years old, like play soccer again and ride his two wheel bike with pedals. I’ll keep you posted on how both of those things go.


Happy birthday Crosby Martin!
