Corbi-Mac-a-doodle and his little admiror
I have been such a slacker in regards to the blog lately...SORRY! I know I need to get back on the ball because I'm forgetting all the fun things that go on in the day to day scheme of things.
Corbin is getting so big! He is sooo funny! He comes up with the funniest things to say. The other day I asked him...
Mom: Corb, what do you think about us having another baby someday? (**DISCLAIMER**In a few years at least...not any time soon)
Corb: Ya...that sounds like a good Idid (Idea).
Mom: What do you think we'll have? A girl baby or a boy baby?
Corb: Ummm....prally a girl baby.
Mom: Really, a girl huh? What should we name her?
Mom: Sally? Hmmm....I don't know about that.
Corb: Oh please mom...please...it's my FAVORITE!
Yesterday Cobe took us to lunch. We decided on Sushi. I told Corbin that we we're having sushi for lunch and he said: "SMOOSHI...I HATE SMOOSHI"
He absolutely ADORES Coby...let's be honest...who doesn't? Right? Anyway, one while we were driving I had Corbin call Coby and say, "Dad...be a MAN and come home." It was pretty funny. But then Coby said to me..."you really shouldn't teach him bad things..." So NOW Corbin tells me ALL THE TIME..."Mom...why did you teach me bad things to say?!!"
As we were picking the name Jaden...we talked about what nicknames we'd call him. I thought of everything from "Jades...to jader-bader-butter-bug". But the ONLY nickname I didn't like was..."J.J." Corbin is such a stinker and quite the tease...don't know where he got that!! But since he knows that I don't like it, he goes around saying..."Hiiiiii Jay Jay...." Only instead of looking at Jaden when he says it...he looks directly at ME! Seriously, this kid is already getting the knack of pushing my buttons...and he's only 4!!!
My dad taught him to say..."Where's my dinner WOMAN" Thanks dad! :) So, he's constantly telling my mom and I that.
I don't know why but he calls my cute friend Melissa Higley...just Higley. He'll say..."Mom...is Higley coming over?" Weird.
I love that he says...."When it's good morning time...."
He loves to act like a little puppy. He'll get down on all fours and say in the cutest little voice..."AAARF..." Then I'll ask him little questions like..."Are you a little puppy?" To which he'll reply..."Aaarf...and nod his little head." Then I'll ask him another question like, what should we do today little puppy. And he'll say.."Aaarf" and then in a higher pitched voice...he'll say whatever it is that he wants to do." That probably doesn't make a ton of sense...Cobe and I know what I'm saying....**Disclaimer** - He is very fluent in the the language of "Tiff-en-ese". **
And after all, this blog is meant to be our little journal.
He LOVES taking baths with Jadesy. It's really quite cute. Jades is really sitting up well and is discovering that he LOVES the play in the tub with his big brother. He's learned to clap his cute, chubby little paws...I would say hands...but clearly they are PAWS! I took him for dr.'s appt. and this kid was 22lbs! 22? That's a lot...still not as much as Jackie...but still quite the little chunkskin! :)
Jaden absolutely LOVES to be near Corbin. So, did Jackie. Like Jack, just having Corbin within an eyes view is all he needs to turn his frowy face upside down.
Here Corbin is imitating the ice skating segment of the Olympics. It was pretty funny! And if that's not funny enough for you...just hearing Jaden laugh should really do you in! :)
Our poor little Jades has had a plugged tear duct since he was born. Dr. Cramer said that 90% of them clear up in 6 months...so when 6 months came and went and we still had that gross goopy eye. We decided to get it fixed. The Dr. enrolled him in a case study for infants with plugged tear ducts. They randomized us and told us we'd either have them do the procedure there which consisted of actually using an instrument to break the membrane in Jaden's tear duct gland that was causing the blockage or we'd have to give him drops for 6 months! 6 months??? I can hardly manage giving him antibiotics for 10 days. We lucked out and they told us they were doing the procedure there. They gave him some drops to numb it...then strapped him down to a board and went to town. Jaden was more than ticked and he let me know it for the rest of the day. They said it didn't hurt him, and that he was more mad than in pain...but still I had to watch them do it. It sucked...but not nearly as bad as watching nurses trying to find a vein on Jack to draw blood at his 12 month check up. My sister was there and she had to help them because I was pretty useless. After Jack ordeal...I remember going into the bathroom and crying because I felt so bad for him. Poor baby! Maybe I'm less sensitive...because I didn't cry when Jaden got his procedure done. I felt bad...but it was like when you watch them get shots. At any rate, they did a GREAT job and my cute baby can finally see out of his beautiful blue eyes. Although it still doesn't stop EVERYONE from saying..."Oh...he's so sleepy...it looks like he's ready for his nap." I seriously get it probably 3 times DAILY! He's NOT tired...he just has little eyes! :)
That's all for now....stay tuned...more to follow!
