1 year old

On his "birth" day
Mommy & Son love

On his First Birthday: 1 year old
Look how much you have grown
Corbin, we wish and pray for so much for you and have enjoyed watching you grow and learn new things. I know it won't be much longer and you will be walking. Just today you took 6-7 steps on your own. You are soaking up everything that you can and trying to learn so much but our prayer for you is to be healthy, loving, and most of all a child of God. We pray for you everyday and know that God has great plans for your life. We also pray for guidance as your parents and that we will make wise decisions for your life. You have been such a blessing in our lives and we look forward to the years to come. You are ALL boy so I am sure you will keep us on our toes. Mommy is scared of all of the things you are probably going to get into. You are so passionate about life and curious to learn new and different things. May we continue to cherish each day that we have together as a family.

"That Little Boy of Mine"
Two eyes that shine so bright,
Two lips that kiss goodnight.
Two arms that hold me tight,
That little boy of mine.

No one could ever know how much your coming has meant.
Because I love you so, you're something heaven has sent.

You're all the world to me.
You climb upon my knee.
To me you'll always be,
That little boy of mine.

First Birthday Party

This past Sunday we were fortunate enough to have a party with our family and friends for Corbin. We were so blessed that the weather cooperated and we were able to enjoy the sunshine (for the most part). It is hard to believe that our little boy is already 1 year old...it is true what they say, "The days are long but the years are short." We have truly enjoyed every second we have gotten to spend with our little boy and we look forward to each day ahead as we watch him grow and learn new things. He is truly a blessed and loved little boy! Thanks to everyone who was able to come and share this special day! Here are some pictures below:

Josh and I made this sign to celebrate the day.
Cake made by Helen (H of cakes)!
He is thinking...what is this thing on my head!
Ha...I got it off!
In true Corbin style he did not eat any cake. He is having a hard time right now with food in general so we weren't surprised at all when he didn't go for any cake. I actually had to smear some icing on his face to get the picture below. I know, one day I will look back on this and think-he didn't want cake?
Maybe if I push it over here no one will notice.

Yay for my birthday party!

Our only family picture from the day...we were all tired at this point and it was time for Corbin to head to bed!
