Corbin just couldn't get enough!
Wasn't quite sure about sitting on the ducky, but loved to slide down it!
He is so cute and super smiley!!!
Corbin wasn't sure what to do. He was actually looking down at someone!
Corbin looked so cool with his hands in his pocket! What a goofball!
The last night, Corbin decided to stick a pen down his pj's. We didn't know until morning when we say the tatoos!!! He loves to stick things down his shirt and then lift up the bottom of his shirt and they fall out...but that didn't happen with his pj's! No wonder he didn't sleep well, he was getting poked all night!

Corbin loves bottles! I was using the lotion from the hotel and Corbin took it and lotioned himself and my legs! He even rubbed it in himself, too!
We decided to come Sunday afternoon instead of Monday, so we had a extra day to relax! Luckily we came early because today it is blizzarding out! Looking outside makes me really thankful that the hotel is connected to the mall!!!
I thought this was kind of a goofy way to dress...one shoe and one glove!

He loves to throw balls, toys, cups, anything he can get his hands on!
Goofy story! Corbin was eating some shredded cheese and we didn't have the bib that catches all the dropped food on him. He found that his diaper did a good job of catching the fallen food! What a silly kid!

Joel let me sleep in a bit this morning, so he was watching Corbin. Joel was on the phone and Corbin decided to "play" on the computer. (Usually when Corbin "plays" on the computer we end up having to call the computer guy or at least do a full shut-down and restart!) So, Joel quickly put down his coffee mug (with a lid) and got Corbin away from the computer and checked to make sure he didn't press anything that would ruin it. In that second (1 year olds move fast), Corbin decided to take a sip of Joel's coffee and spilled it down his entire front! All I hear is Corbin screaming (didn't worry too much, happens everyday) and Joel yelling at me that he needs me in there right away (did worry, doesn't happen everyday)! Joel took off Corbin's shirt and his chest was bright red! (We didn't realize that he also got his lips until later.) So, in the shower he went, diaper and all (and me in my pj's). Corbin was still crying, but probably because we were panicking. After a few minutes in the cool water, Corbin was fine. He looked at me like I was nuts when he still had his socks on in the water...he tried to pull them off! He was laughing and splashing water on his belly! (What a sport!) We called the clinic to see if we should bring him in and they said yes. We got him dressed and noticed that his lips were pretty red so we had him suck on a cold, wet washcloth and also put a cool, wet paper towel on his chest (drove him nuts) and went to the clinic (1 block away). We got his shirt off and all the redness was gone. He just has a little blister on his upper lip that we need to put some chap stick on every once in a while (he puts it on himself and thinks he's great)!!! The nurse was pretty impressed that he wasn't burned! The doctor gave him a sucker and sent us home! He has been a super happy little boy ever since!
Talk about a miracle! All I could think at first was how bad is it going to scar! And now...it's just a tiny little blister on his upper lip that will be gone before we know it! Thank you, God!!! Makes you think about how fast things can happen, though! What a blessing that it was so minor!

We had a competition and here is dad arm in arm with another guy trying to stack the cups.

....a piece of bread got stuck under his nose! Nice shot, huh?
He also decided it would be fun to eat with his foot on the table! No idea where that came from, but it was pretty cute! It seemed uncomfortable...but it stayed up there for awhile!
I guess these pictures prove that there is never a dull moment at our house! As long as the sense of humor is around, so is the laughter!

He loves popcorn!!!
He also likes suckers!
He got a little tired towards the end of the varsity game! He wouldn't let go of his pacifier, taggie blankie or that sucker!!!
I did catch a few shots of the game, too! We won!!! Go Comets!!!

The only thing better than one taggie is...
Showing some attitude!
And seriously....how super cute is that! He was brushing his teeth before church!
OUR BUSY DAY!
We had a very busy Sunday! We placed an announcement in the church bulletin to tell the church our news...This July: Joel and Emily will be having their second child!...Joel thought it would be funny to see if people really read the bulletin. They read it! It was fun!
Then we had a quick VBS meeting (in January....man are we on the ball)!!! And after that a quick stop out for lunch!
When we got home the men took naps and Emily relaxed!
At 5 we had a video on Creationism with discussion and potluck (good ole potlucks)! It was a good time and great food! It really is quite an interesting topic! You don't realize how much "evolution" has taken over our schools books! More than just the normal science books are filled with false teachings about evolution!!! It's really scary!
Our night wasn't over yet....we were invited out to watch tv...that's right!!! For the first time in a long time we sat and watched tv!!! We watched a mini-series called Comanche Moon (prequel to Lonesome Dove) over at some friends. We were even invited back for Tuesday and Wednesday night too! Corbin looked at the tv and oohed and aahed!!! He hasn't seen tv much in his short lifetime!
And now we are finally finishing the night at almost midnight!
It was a great day!

Todays loaf was a whopper! No joke, it wouldn't fit in any of the bags, so we had to cut it in half and eat a few slices to get it into the 2 bags!!! Here is the loaf next to 2/3 of the previously baked loaf! (Even though it is in a Sara Lee bag, we did bake it ourselves!)
Done to perfection!
The drill makes plenty of noise and has been used all around the house, not just at the workbench, but the window, chair, couch, kitchen cabinets and drawers! And it even lights up!It didn't take him long to figure out the Flathead screw driver from the Phillips!
And to top it all off, he got a cool hair do from his daddy after bath time!
