Our family has now grown by two feet! Corban has arrived and we thank God everyday for our precious, healthy little boy. Thank you for visiting and joining us on our adventure as we learn about parenthood and how to raise a Godly man.

33 years old!

I had a wonderful birthday celebrating with Chris and Corban. We had dinner at one of my favorite local restaurants, Portofinos. I highly suggest eating there if you a local in the Greenville area. Corban even sang me happy birthday (see previous post).

I just can't get enough of this precious face!

Smiley Face

Corban is packed and ready for daycare. His first week was a success! Although he did pick up a cough and runny nose, he seems to be adjusting well. His 2 teachers say that he is just so sweet and all the noise of the other kids doesn't bother him at all-Success! From the time he was little we tried to make sure that he was used to having sound around, either a radio or TV. We didn't want the house to be so quiet while he was sleeping that we couldn't get anything done.
Pictures from his first day coming soon!

Corban must have

How cute are these? If any child should have these, it definitely should be Corban. :)
UPDATE: We bought these for Corban when we were on our anniversary trip and they were 40% off!

My little monkey

First, let me tell you a story about this little monkey. The first weekend that Chris came to visit (Labor Day 2007) I had to work that Friday. While I was at work, he went and played a round of golf and then went to the mall and made me the above monkey at Build-A-Bear. Since they didn't have any Clemson clothes, he even went to the SC shop at the mall and bought a baby Clemson outfit. This monkey still sits in our bedroom and is one of the many reminders of what a sweet and thoughtful husband I have.
Side note: Chris didn't know, but my dad had recently done the same thing for my mom.
Now, I have two little monkeys and life just can't get any better!

Tummy Time

He is doing so great at holding his head up!

Check out these rolls

...and to think we were concerned about his weight. He loves being naked!

Early Bird

Chris is a night owl and would sleep in 'til noon if he could. I, on the other hand, am ususally up by 8am on the weekends and ready the get the day started. By the looks of it, I think we have an early riser on our hands. This is the precious face that greets me every morning.

An amazing snowfall

This was Corban this morning. All dressed up and no one to play with.
We waited for Chris to make it safely home (whew!) and then Corban decided it was time to take a nap so we didn't get out in the snowfall until later in the day after Chris woke up.

My car deep in snow

Yeah!! Corban loves the snow.

Chris is finally up. Although not dressed for the weather, I just had to get a photo of these two.
Brrr...he looks cold!

All smiles

Corban loves attention. My parents came up this weekend and they can't keep their hands off of him and I am so thankful. From the moment they arrive, they do every feeding, every diaper chage, EVERYTHING! Corban is all smiles and mom is too! :)

Our resolution

Corban all bundled up to go walking with us
Whew...he's all worn out

kissy kissy

Through my eyes

The guys are just hanging out watching football. Corban thinks he is such a big boy.
Gotta love his knee high socks. :)

Chris' family Christmas

Chris' parents
A few days after Christmas, Chris' family had their annual get together in Walterboro. This was the longest trip for Corban yet. He did get a little squirmy about halfway through the trip so we made a pit stop for eating and changing. Once we got there, he was so good. He enjoys being passed around and meeting all his new family members. Below are some pictures from the evening.

One of my favorite gifts

For Christmas this year, my SIL gave us a kids set of our Christmas china. I was so surprised at this awesome gift. I had no idea there was even such a thing. Now Corban, and all of our future kiddos will be able to eat on plates just like mommy and daddy.
This is our Christmas china
