We went to the mall this morning & played in the pop-up fountains. Corbin loved them! He was giggling and squealing the whole time. He also found a ball & kept yelling, "A ball! A ball!" He was so excited!
If you know Corbin, you know he loooooves to draw. If he spots a pen, marker, piece of chalk, etc. he starts to whine until it's in his hands. He loves to create. We've bought him 2 doodle boards,and he's actually getting good at drawing faces. He draws a circle (or oval) and puts about 10 dots inside them for "eyes."
These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, when he used washable markers to make this masterpiece. Here he is in action.
We bought a train table for $30 last Tuesday. It was a deal we could not pass up, since we will soon have 3 boys in the house! I set it up right away, but then I had to put away all of the little pieces until he's old enough not to break them.

I do have a few more posts lined up already, but I didn't want to squeeze them all into one. I will try & remember to update tomorrow, too, with new Corbin pics.
Corbin had his 18 month appt on Friday. It went great!
He is 24 lbs even, which is 30th percentile. That is up from his usual 20th-ish or so. Probably all of that sloppy joe he has been eating lately. That kid loves that meal. He is 32 1/2 inches tall (50th percentile) and has a 19 3/4 inch head (95th percentile). That kid has a big noggin!
He is doing great with speech, which is reassuring. He is only "required" to have about 4 words by now that I can understand, but she likes to see about 5-10. Here is Corbin's vocabulary that mommy & daddy can understand:
-Hi -I did it! -cat -Dad -tree (rarely) -bird -bottle (more like "Boo-ta!", his sippy cup) -all done -dirt (rarely) -scissors (rarely) -Ethan ("Etah") -up
Notice that he does not say Mommy or Mama! Little stinker!
We had a fabulous weekend! Corbin & I went garage-saling on Saturday & I scored some great deals, including 48 pairs of infant socks for $1 & this cute little speedo for Corbin. We bought new patio furniture & sat out on the deck for most of our meals, even breakfast.
Corbin was outside on Sunday from about 9 AM until 8 PM (except for his 4 hour nap), playing in the splash table and his wading pool. I didn't get pics of the wading pool yet (it's one of those $5 ones, but he loves it!). That will have to wait for another day. Here are some shots on the deck, though
