Happy Thanksgiving

We enjoyed Thanksgiving today and being able to celebrate with our family and friends. We went out to the farm to give thanks and Corbin got to ride his first horse. When we asked him to go and ride the horsie this is what he ran and and got on...
This horse.

What he didn't realize is that we were going to see how he liked riding a real horse. He enjoyed running around at the barn but once he got close to Otis he was a little more timid.

Checking out things at the barn.
Not too sure about Otis giving him a kiss.

We went down to the ring and he was not too sure about staying on Otis' back but he was ok once we started moving. He smiled some but most of the time he was a little unsure. Otis was a very patient teacher. Here are some more pics:

Holding on to Mommy and Gigi's hands.

Dad are you getting all of this?
Excited to get can see the big smile!

All in all a great experience for him and he even went up and gave Otis a pat on the nose afterward to tell him thank you. He was very proud of himself and he got to ride on his favorite toy:

The cool tractor!

We went out to see Mommy's horse, Juri and Josh said that as I was walking out to the pasture Corbin was walking out after me blowing kisses. He is such a sweet boy (even though he is wide open) and we are so blessed. He is saying so much now and is so loving, giving hugs and lots of kisses (he even knows how to give eskimo kisses). He can tell you what Santa says (ho, ho, ho), knows so many words I can't even begin to list but some of his new favorite are: Georgie, choo-choo, woah, yesssss, yay, and memaw (for Mamaw). He can also say, I love you. We are making progress on food and he even ate cupcake today (he wouldn't even touch cake when he turned 1 year old). He LOVES chocolate and definitely takes after his Momma in that regard. He has been SO excited as we are decorating for Christmas and looks at the lights and snowman and says ahhhhh. He also LOVES doggies and anytime he sees a dog or a picture of a doggie he will say, "Woof woof." He will pick up his play phone and "call" Daddy and have a conversation with him. I guess that shows you how much I talk to Josh on the phone while we are at home! Can't believe he is 18 months old but we are still loving watching him grow and learn new things every day. Today, he saw a turkey and said, "Gobble, gobble, gobble." Even though we work on some things and he may not say it or do it at that moment, he is definitely taking everything in. I think our favorite thing that he has started doing is whenever we say the prayer at breakfast, lunch, or dinner time when we are finishing it up he will say, "AAAmen."It is amazing how he takes in everything. We are so thankful to God for his great blessings and provisions in our life. He is so faithful and always there when we need Him. He has truly blessed us and our family.

Meeting him for the first time.
My grandmother, Jenny, passed away this past Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011 at 7:42 a.m. She had been declining pretty quickly in the past few months but I will always be thankful that she got to meet Corbin. Seeing him always put a big smile on her face and she has loved to watch him run around or just hold him for the past year at Camden Place. She always said, "He is so pretty. Hasn't he got the roundest head, the prettiest ears? My isn't he heavy? Is he sleeping through the night? What can I buy him?" I would always hand him to her as she was sitting in her chair and I would wheel them both into the family room where I would let him down and she would watch him run around. He gave her many hugs and kisses (even though she wasn't too fond of his open mouth kisses). Near the end when she was at Beacon Place, we took him and she just watched him as he was throwing a ball and he put the ball on her bed. She took her arms out from underneath the covers to get the ball out and play with him. She was such a special lady, near and dear to our hearts and she will greatly be missed and even though Corbin knows who she is now, I know he will have a very faint memory of her. I am so glad that they could meet and that she was able to hold him in her arms, even though it was for a short time. I know someday soon we will see Jenny again and she is having a great time in heaven being able to walk and be free again!
Christmas last year (2010) right before she went to the hospital.

All boy

So tonight this little boy decided to take a nose dive into the tub. He had been running up to me and slamming himself into my back giving me hugs while I was getting his bath ready. He hopped up on the ledge and next thing I know he had flipped over on his back and landed in the bathtub clothes and all. Needless to say I was worried and he was upset but after I pulled him out and held him and made sure he was ok, I had to shake my head. This boy is going to give me a heart attack! And he isn't even 2 yet!
