Are we there yet?

This has been a slow work in progress. I started this to keep in touch with out of town family that still wanted to keep an eye on us just like they were still only 20 miles away.

I then thought I would revamp it to include all the little things that make the Cross family tick, from our adventures in food, my crafty intentions to just the pure craziness.
10 years ago I would have told you I would be in a different spot then I am now. Now hold on, I am not complaining but rather saying that sometimes how we picture ourselves in the future may not be how it always turns out.
I have had fun getting here, no doubt about it, but I never imagined myself married or even having (gasp) children!
I always thought I would be the worst mother. I didn't really have real reasons, I just knew (young ignorance) or maybe was scared.
I just could not picture myself getting in all arms deep in diapers, puke, or owies.

Guess what? I did and not just arms deep but diving into murky waters with it deep!
You know the right moment when it happens and it seems nothing else was meant to be and I would not trade it for the world.
