Five Years Ago There Came A Ring

On May 26, 2009 an epic event that changed time and lives to place.

Check it!

This one isn't of the ring, but I just that smile! Don't you? 
That smile is what won me over. ;)

I'm so glad he asked.  I'm happy I said yes.  And I wouldn't change a thing.

Corbin - Five Months

Five months. Corbin is growing up! There's really not much new to report. He's working on teething. By this time Alister already had to front bottom teeth for a month. He's eating rice cereal still. He enjoys eating. I can usually tell when he's done because starts talking with food in his mouth. It's absolutely adorable. He's generally happy still. My only real complaint is that his sleeping habits are not good. But I know it won't last. So, I'm trying hard to be patient. We sure do love this smiley boy. :)

Corbin - Four Months

Our baby is four months old! And my oh my, don't we love him. :) He had his doctors visit and is very healthy. His weight is a little low from where the doctor would like to see it. So, we are now starting to supplement with formula. The first time I gave it to him, I only made two ounces. He did just fine with it. :) no problem with switching over. The day before his visit we had decided that we would need to start supplementing anyway. Perfect timing. :) 

He grew two and a half inches in length. But, he's still small. His head on the other hand, is in the 95% percentile. So, he's got a big noggin. But, apart from his eczema, Doctor says he looks very healthy. :) 

Corbin is flipping from tummy to back more and more. Sometimes, it's hard to keep him on his tummy. :) 

- Being tossed in the air (gently, of course). 
- Going upside down. 
- Getting scared. 
- Tummy time (for a short time). 
- Watching people. 
- Sitting. 
- Standing. 
- Bath time. 


- Being alone.  He really likes to be with someone almost constantly.

Weight: 12.7 lbs.   6%
Length: 24 3/4 in.  37%
OFC: 43.5 cm       95%

Corbin - Three Months

Our little guy is growing up! As sad as it is that the newborn stage is over (it sure doesn't last long enough) I'm so excited to see him growing stronger and bigger.

This little guy, unfortunately, developed eczema between 1-2 months of age. It truly bothers him at times. He'll get extremely fussy at times because it itches. I have to slather him in Aquaphor several times a day. He had to be bathed everyday. He also develops sores at times from the eczema. Poor little guy. :( But, despite being uncomfortable at times, Corbin is a very happy little guy. 

He smiles a lot, then acts shy. It's adorable. :)
