Thanks so much to everyone for the sweet birthday wishes for Corbin’s first birthday. Of course nothing went as planned (does it ever?), and bubba woke up that same night with a major cold. He was so stuffed up that he couldn’t sleep, and I evidently drew the short straw which meant a run to the store at midnight to get him some of that goofy honey cough syrup they make for babies. Boo.
The intended 3 day visit with the family was immediately cancelled, because there is no way I’m going to try to fight with a sick kid who wont sleep, in someone else’s house. No thank you. I don’t get enough sleep as it is. But since I still had to go up to Maryland anyway for a dentist appointment, (Yes, my dentist is 2 hrs away from my house. Don’t laugh. I dislike dentists so I’m sticking with one I know and trust.) we decided to just go for the day and share a few cupcakes before turning around and coming back home.
Confusion…Do what now?
Dejection…Mommy took away the fire :/
Recovery…Oh, it’s FOOD!
Cupcakes got a giant thumbs up, but presents are a much more serious business with this one…
Isn’t that the cutest shirt ever? It’s absolutely perfect for this little chunk-a-munk!
He had to tear off the tiniest piece of paper you’ve ever seen, and then hand it to the closest adult. Seriously, it took for-ev-er to open the measly four or five presents we got him. Is that a normal thing that the second kid doesn’t get as many gifts as the first? We already have so many baby toys from when Reli was little that we just didn’t need anything new. I was wrapping up pj’s and socks trying to make it look like he was actually getting something. I felt bad for him, but it’s not like he knows the difference yet right?
Oh well, we tend to be very low key for first birthadays, and then slowly begin to step it up for the second and third. So maybe we’ll do better next year. I’m just happy we were able to get a few good pictures in before the black-eye incident.
