vintage threads! {part two}

i cant help but smile everytime i see him wearing his daddy's old clothes and imagine what ryan must have been like at this age. the things he was getting into when he wore these shirts. how his mom and dad and grandmas and grandpas and everyone else who loved him must have given him a million hugs when he wore these. how he must have ran all over outside in them. and played with trucks in them. just like corbin does now.

bounce it up! {part two}

corbin and i went to bounce it up again with some baby pals and their mommies! he actually loved it this time too and was whining and trying to squirm out of my arms so he could get down and play more when we were leaving!

vintage threads! {part one}

a few months ago ryan's grandma gave me a bag full of ryan's old clothes. to say that i was thrilled would be an understatement. she was worried i wouldnt want them because they were "old" but little does she know thats all the rage these days! the other day i saw the bag in his closet and pulled it out to see if anything would fit him yet and a ton of the shirts will! im so excited! so here's installment one of corbin's vintage threads!

in the bag was even a shirt i've seen ryan wear a ton in his baby pictures so im so excited to get my hands on them and then try to postition corbin in the same pose!!!

flashback friday!

baseballin' and babymoonin'!

whenever i think about it, it kind of bums me out that i didnt start this blog while i was pregnant. i mean i did take a picture of the bump every week and wrote in my pregnancy journal, the belly book. but it would have been fun to get some feedback and some, i know EXACTLY how you feel's back then too.

anyway, these are from our babymoon trip to california in may of 2009. our last babyless vacation for a really loooong time. i got warm sunshine, relaxation, and time at the beach! and ryan got to mark two baseball stadiums off his list of stadiums he wants to watch a ball game at. {his list includes every ball park in the united states by the way} and we both got in-n-out meals at least once a day!

also? someone please tell me how i ever lived without my canon rebel? these photos are horrible, but on with the post...

angel stadium!
 ryan almost caught a fly ball! we were on tv too!
dodger stadium!
 exploring the city!
twenty five week baby bump on manhatten beach!

 expecting dads have a lot to think about too!
we were broke and trying to save money for the one income road that lied ahead but we were so glad afterwards to have went anyways. it was a time for us to hang out without worrying about if the house was clean or work or any drama going on around us. and we had the best time together!

fourteen months old!

fourteen months is a REALLY FUN age! corbin is always learning something new and surprising us every day. he's really into copying us too and its so cute. he copies facial expressions and sticking his tongue out and sounds we make and marching on the kitchen floor {his march is more like sticking one leg straight out and then taking a step with the other foot}! last weekend he was running around the house throwing his arms up saying, "tack-don" which is his version of TOUCHDOWN!!! and when you say, "you goooot iiiiit!" he'll reply with the same tone as us, just his own jibberish. i love that he really thinks he's saying it. he's gotten really good with the word "bubble", "shoooooz", and "all done" too. his other most used words are "bang-cok" and "track-gong" i just have no idea what they mean. and he signs all done and more! corbin also knows what a puppy, kitty, ducky, horsey, and cow-y {haha juuust kidding} says.

my once eat anything garbage disposal has now turned into the pickiest of eaters with barely an appetite. meals are one of the most frustrating parts of my day. one day he loves bananas. the next day he wants nothing to do with them. things like that are fine but when i take an hour to make a meal and he wont eat it i have to try and come up with something else in just a few minutes because he's hungry NOW! we've also tried to introduce cow's milk but he wants nothing to do with that and spits out every sip. {cant say that i blame him} so im trying to figure out what an alternative could be. rice milk? soy? almond?
bath time is finally better and he isnt scared of having his hair rinsed by laying back in the water anymore. he loves splashing around in the water and knocking all his toys off the ledge of the tub! 
and he thoroughly enjoys his after bath evening nakie time too! i've tried sitting him on his potty a few times but he is so much more than not interested and cries to get off which makes me wonder if its even comfortable. anyone have the boon potty bench and have similar problems? or maybe he is just not ready/intrested yet.
 he's generally just a super sweet and happy little guy. my favorite time is right when he wakes up in the morning. he is always so full of smiles and snuggly!
he's getting to be quite the sweetsie boy towards his mommy giving hugs, longer than usual morning cuddles, and holding my hand, not ripping it away from me. ok, sometimes he still does do that.
there is nothing sweeter than his curly little head on my shoulder!!!

and we cant forget these afternoon snuggles with dad watching some wiggles clips on dad's iphone AND sticking his finger in his belly button! my kids got talent!
he's down to one {usually two hour} nap a day which i LOVE. its so nice to have the whole afternoon to do things and not worry about getting his second nap in.
and boy is he a helper! always wanting to be right there to pull knives out of the dishwasher put dishes away and destroy straighten up the house!
his hair is getting out of control long and im so tempted to straighten it again. this time all over his head, but i know its probably not good for his baby hairs. ryan wants to have his hair cut but i want him to have a huge head of curly locks! someone told me if i have it cut it will grow back quick and much thicker. is that true?
he currently loves the wiggles, pushing his trucks around all. day. long. on his knees {and they all end up in the kitchen by the end of the day because he knows they roll faster on the tile}, dancing, books, climbing up on everything, opening the toilet lid, mega blocks, baby gym {where he puts toys away ALL ON HIS OWN!}, and balls!

cant wait to see all the fun stuff he'll be up to this month...
