bounce it up!

corbin and i met some of our friends at bounce it up this morning.
uh, he didnt really care for the place.
{pretty please dont pay attention to my awful green socks.
i barely ever wear shoes that require
them so i dont have many to chose from.}
anyway, we went sliding.
the climb up is a work out in itself!
here's his face as we slid down.
whyyyyy are you doing this to me mom!?!
we went thru obstacle courses.
corbin pretty much whined the whole time.
poor guy, i made him go thru it anyways.
but just once.
this was the only place he felt a little bit comfortable
enough to pry his hands off my neck.
those are his buddies jacob and brooklyn!
ok, im done. let me off of here already!
whew, safe on the ground.
he just wanted to walk around the equiptment rather than go on it.
oh look. another "baaaaaall!"
he didnt even want to look in from the outside!
but then he found the motor and pretty much fell in love.
there was a little button on the side that he would
push and then stomp his feet really fast.
over and over.
oh hey jacob. check this out!
yeah, you got it. just push that button!
here's a video of him inspecting the motor!
{again, please dont mind my socks}

story time.

corbin loves books. he brings me one to read at least ten million times a day. usually the same one which i have completely memorized by now.
driving through tonka town with chuck the dump truck.
 i remember the first time he went into his room, picked out a book, and then brought it to me to read with his arms raised high for me to pick him up!
and then today there was this.
corbin reading a book all by himself.
i see weekly trips to the library in our near future.

thirteen months old.

i can just see it now. writing a post about my little corbin being one hundred and ninety two months old and getting his drivers license! haha but seriously i think i'll continue this month thing until corbin stops doing cool stuff. which will be never. so there.

last saturday {the 18th} corbin turned thirteen months old! i can not believe all the new things he's doing and saying. every day with him is something new lately!
so lets start off with his words. i thought his little gibberish was cute, by oh my gah do i love when he says words! so far he can say: ball, dog, turtle, tractor, mama, dada, bye bye, book, block, balloon, and what i think might be all done. and he understands what they all are too. he also understands: toes, outside, light, truck, puppy, arms up and im sure more that i cant think of! his favorite word right now has to be ball though. anything that resembles the shape of a ball he freaks out pointing and saying ball over and over. like the other day we were at target and he would say, "baaaaaall" every time we walked by a pumpkin!
he doesnt know any baby sign language yet, except i think he does his own version of all done by waving bye bye to himself with both hands, but i use it every day and im sure someday soon he'll catch on. now he just communicates by pointing to what he wants. mostly its food and he points and says, "mmmm". or when he's ready for a nap or bedtime he just walks to the room and whines a little so i know its time for bed! and my personal favorite is saying, "aaaahhhh" when he wants a drink. finishes taking a drink. or sees someone else take a drink!
he dances all.the.time. nowadays. anytime there is any sort of music on. and sometimes when there's not! his dance moves have evolved from what was once a hands out in front while i bounce up and down to tapping one foot on the ground and head banging. he seriously cracks me up! he plays really well on his own too and i love peeking around the corner to spy on him while he does it. i just wish i knew what was going on in his imaginary world. his favorite though, is playing with his dad. i can try all day to make him crack up and the second ryan comes home from work corbin is all laughs! i guess im just not funny.
as cool as he is, he still has his moments. the moments where he bends his back backwards and turns into dead weight all the while squealing as loud as he can because i am just not doing what he wants me to be doing at that instant. and he is quite the pest when it comes to getting into things he shouldnt be getting into. i feel like thats mostly my fault for leaving things out but why is he always wanting to stick his finger right into the opening of a pop can or wanting to rip my books off the shelf and step on them and rip the pages and eat them!?! and his other way to show me he is all done eating or does not like what i've made him is too either pick it up and throw it across the kitchen or wave his hands back and forth over the top of his high chair tray so that food goes flying off in every direction. good times!
also, he recently started hating public bathrooms and getting his hair washed!
mostly though, he is just really fun! i smile all day long. {ok, almost all day.} i love watching him learn and try new things and explore and become his own little guy.
{oh why yes, that is an uff da! bandana drool bib! we loves it!}

two minutes and i got these.

 four of the
 funniest pictures
 i've ever taken
of this silly boy!

free your glee!

the three of us met up with my sister, niece, and nephew at the fair tuesday to eat our hearts out!
the weather was perfect. warm and sunny!
we visited the cows
[a lot of the other animals weren't in their barns...?!?]
and this poor mama pig. i felt her pain.
corbin's favorite! TRACTORS!!! ps. when did my baby get so big?!?
i let him wander around and get in people's ways.
he held tight onto this ball from the comcast booth the whole.entire.time!
mmmm roasted corn!
i was too chicken to ride this ride with corbin.
oh, plus you have to be two to ride rides anyways.
pretty much where every kid rides when walking thru the fair, right?
i kept trying to get corbin to go get in the middle of this show and dance.
he wanted nothing to do with it!
but how cute are those little farm animal kiddies!
the first year in many that i havent riden the extreme scream!
i kinda missed it in a 'oh my gah im going to pee my pants' kinda way!
and then there was THIS! fried freaking oreos! and twinkies too!
they were quite the gut bomb afterwards but im glad i tried one three.
the worker told me that this fried dude was her boss.
and then the best moment of the whole fair experience.
corbins first taste of a scone!
we brought a bag home and they are the best breakfast food ever!

sometimes i wish i lived somewhere that was hot three hundred and sixty five days a year.
but then there are days like yesterday, when im driving home and can't help but be in awe of where i live.
some days it drives me nuts to know the closest store is a twenty minute drive away but yesterday i wish my drive home would have been longer.
i mean, im standing im my front yard here!
fall skies are the best!
but dont try to get me out of my sandals til there's snow on the ground...
