Family Picture Time

A few weeks ago we spent a morning with friends Jason, Amber, and their baby Knox.  While the main objective was to take photos of we Crosses (grammatical sidenote – Is “Crosses” correct?  I’ve been legally a Cross for 3.5 years now, and known the Cross family for 14 years.  I am always hesitant to pluralize the name Cross (I refer to us as “The Cross Family”) because I don’t know for sure…what is the correct plural of Cross as it applies to a family name?  The regular noun “cross” obviously is “crosses.”  And I don’t want to put an apostrophe after the proper noun “Cross” because I’m not trying to imply possession.  Any English language experts out there?  Anyways, back to the point…Jason, Amber, Knox, and we Crosses) hung out at the park nearby to our house, took a little walk, and went to brunch.. Lucie was a little grumpy and so wasn’t super smiley, but the Bear was chipper enough to make up for her I think.  He was so full of cheer, and I can’t get over these photos with his little wrinkled nose, and mop top hair everywhere. The photo with Lucie playing with my necklace is pretty great too, she loves holding it.  Her best smiles came with riding down the slide and interacting with her brother.  I love that they love each other so much.  Doesn’t it just make your insides go all smooshy?  Mine sure do!
Jason’s photos are beautiful as usual, I’m so happy to have some family shots as well as a couple of just the kiddies. I’m so thankful to have such a talented friend!
In other news, 18 month birthday this week!  We have a checkup with the doc tomorrow so I’ll be sure to report back with all the stats, as well as all the new stuff they do.  Cheers!

  1. love love love you all, the twins are so sweet together!! Makes my heart smile. I believe the proper way to pluralize your last name is Crosses 🙂 “When a family name (a proper noun) is pluralized, we almost always simply add an “s.” So we go to visit the Smiths, the Kennedys, the Grays, etc.When a family name ends in s, x, ch, sh, or z, however, we form the plural by added -es, as in the Marches, the Joneses, the Maddoxes, the Bushes, the Rodriguezes. Do not form a family name plural by using an apostrophe; that device is reserved for creating possessive forms.”

  2. These are beautiful! Ps I also had the conundrum of figuring out how to pluralize our last name. And thank you to your friend amber for totally using “bushes” as an example! The crosses and bushes should really hang out again soon. I just said it to Jeff tonight. Miss seeing you and the kiddos! 🙂
