Every month I start out the post by saying I can’t believe Crosby is X months old! And today she’s 6 months old – half a year! How??? Time really is the greatest thief and I wish there was a way to freeze it.
Crosby is five months old today! It’s crazy how fast it’s going – we’re trying to savor every minute while she’s still this small but she’s changing every day. This month she’s starting interacting with us much more and has finally started to notice and pet Mackie. I can’t wait to see their relationship develop.
Finally!! I’ve been meaning to share a full nursery tour since Crosby was born almost 5 months ago but things happened and it kept getting pushed back. It was one of my favorite projects when I was pregnant and we are loving the way it turned out. Her room is by far my favorite in the house, I love how light and bright it is.
The first few weeks with a newborn are rough and nothing can really prepare you for it. When I was pregnant everyone told me to get all the sleep I could because once the baby arrived I’d be a zombie. And I did because I never had a problem sleeping or got to an uncomfortable stage in my pregnancy – I was lucky. However, once Crosby arrived I turned into that sleep deprived zombie everyone warned me about. It was hard to see it as temporary and imagine life on the other side.
When I was pregnant I spent so much time looking for the perfect diaper bag. And at first I was really underwhelmed with what I was finding. Most were bags I’d never want to carry, I couldn’t understand why it was so hard to make a cute diaper bag. Flash forward to now, with a four-month-old, and I’m realizing that not only do I want a diaper bag to be cute, but I also need it to be functional. I think I finally found one that’s both!
