The camera isn't completely packed away, but everything is in disarray, so I am not yet uploading Christmas pics. It's just too messy around here! We had a great Christmas & hope you had a great holiday, too. I have some cute photos of Corbin in his new sled that I will soon share. He was very sick on Christmas Day, so he looks a little rosy in all of our photos. Poor little bug.
The renter signed the lease to our condo tonight, so that is another weight off of our shoulders. We close on Friday, get possession Saturday night & have the movers coming on Sunday morning. There are so many deadlines & appointments to make within the next few weeks.
Also, we will be without consistent internet coverage from Sunday the 4th until Tuesday the 13th, so posts will be few & far between, I think.
Here is our new house! We move in less than 3 weeks! It is very kid-friendly. The other day, we were there when the neighborhood kids got off the schoolbus- there are lots of them! It has a lot of room in the backyard for Corbin to run around, and it has a great finished basement, which will become Corbn's playroom.

It's going to be so great to have more room for Corbin to play & explore!
I don't have any new photos today, but just wanted to note that Corbin is walking everywhere now. Pretty soon, he will probably be running. He can get himself up in the middle of the room now & take off.
Also, we have put an offer in on a home that is very kid-friendly. It has a huge finished basement that could be Corbin's playroom. Cross your fingers for us, pray- whatever you've got, we'll take!
Sorry for the lack of updates. We have a lot going on, with Thanksgiving travels, trying to rent our condo, trying to buy a house, teething, etc. Here are a few pics of Corbin over the past week or so.
Eating some turkey & sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving Day
I know, Nick, I don't have quite as much hair as you!
Attempts at taking a 1 year photo (FAIL)
There's just too much work to be done- no time to sit still!
So sleepy that he actually fell asleep on Daddy. He hasn't done that since he was a couple months old.
We went to the Works on Saturday morning for a playdate with one of the Mommy's groups & Ethan got to come along, too. Corbin was having a very nasty day teething. Coupled with the fact that his morning nap was 20 minutes long, he was a Krabby Patty that day. So no smiles, but he seemed to have a lot of interest in exploring all of the tables.

Ethan, look at these cool blocks!
Well, what are you working on?
This table is even cooler than the one at the doctor's office!
He kind of woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Or maybe it's because I greeted him with a flash.
We met Sara & Sean for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel. They are friends from the internet! We had a nice time chatting. Jon & I played "keep Corbin from having a meltdown while out to eat" (one of our favorites!) while Sara & Sean calmly ate their french toast. Sara's really nice & her little guy is so well behaved!
Sean can play peek-a-boo by himself!
Here we are (minus Jon, the photographer):
Corbin waves good-bye to Sean
Thankfully, he slept on the way to the aquarium, so he was ready to go when we got there.
Obligatory waterlife shot:
Cute shot with Daddy:
I think he wanted to get a little closer to these guys
He wasn't too sure about the alligator turtle, though!
In the frog section, they had these large frogs that had sound effects when you pushed the buttons. Corbin got a kick out of it. He looks so proud for doing it, too!
I'm not a bird person, so I don't know if this is a parrot or what. But it's pretty!
Eating out of Jon's hand. Corbin thought this was so cool! A few of them almost dive-bombed us!
Petting the Sharks
And when we came home & put him to bed, he had his last bottle of breastmilk. (sob) My stash is gone. I'm sad that he doesn't get any more of my milk. We've been trying out the cow's milk for the past few days & he is doing great with it.
