Another birthday party & a trip to Urgent Care

Corbin was having another birthday party today. This time it was with his family. Grandma Jana volunteered to have it at her house so that we wouldn't have to try to plan a party with a new baby. Thank you grandma!! The day didn't go quite as easy as we had planned, though. When we woke up we noticed one of Corbin's eyes was very red and crusty. Max was going on day 2 of having green gunk in his eye. So we decided to take them both to Urgent Care to get it checked out. We got there at 12:00, as soon as they opened so that we could be the first ones in. Corbin's party started at 1:00 and we didn't want to be late. We weren't surprised to hear that Corbin had pink eye. Max's was probably just a clogged tear duct but it could be pink eye too. So, both of them have medicine to take now. Corbin has drops and Max has ointment. We got out of Urgent Care just in time to head to Jana's for Corbin's party. Sam & Jana had gone all out. They cooked steaks, chicken, hot dogs, baked potatoes, fruit and salad. It was yummy! Sam, Jana, Glenn, Roberta, Marc, Deana, Brandon, Connor, Ed, Barb, Ed Sr. and Rosemary were all there to celebrate with him. Corbin got a lot of money and gift cards. He wasn't very excited about them as he was opening them but he will be excited when he gets to spend them. He is working on earning a Wii and is going to use his money to buy games. Corbin had a great party!

Corbin's birthday party & fishing day

Corbin had a busy day today. It started with a fishing trip with daddy. There was a kids fishing clinic at Bass Pro that Ryan took him to. They had a pond that was well stocked with fish and eat kid could get 4. Corbin caught his 4 and had a great time doing it. They got home just in time for Corbin to take a quick shower and then head to his birthday party. We had it at Gold Medal Gymnastics in Republic. We wanted to do it somewhere fun for the kids. The bonus was that there was no preparation for us. We just had to show up with cupcakes. Connor, Brandon, Jase, Kody, Devin and Issac came to his party. The kids were allowed to run around the facility and play on all of the equipment. They had a blast! The boys had a great time doing flips, jumping on the trampoline and swinging on the rings. After they played for an hour we ate cupcakes and ice cream and opened presents. Corbin got some great stuff! He got Transformers, Power Ranger glasses and sidewalk paint. What more could a 4 year old boy want? It was a great day for him!

Corbin turns 4

It is hard to believe that my baby is turning 4 today. He looks so big to me now, especially after having a newborn in the house. I think he had a great birthday that he will always remember. First thing this morning he got his present. He got a power wheels 4 wheeler and he was VERY excited!! He spent a good part of the day riding it. It didn't take him long to figure out how to work it. We went to dinner at Zio's that night. He got to pick where he wanted to go and that was his pick because he likes dipping his bread in the oil and seasonings. They brought him a special birthday dessert consisting of vanilla ice cream, a brownie, chocolate syrup and whipped cream. He didn't eat very much of it, though. I hope his birthday was great for him!

Going to the cardiologist

Max made his first trip to the cardiologist today. We wanted Dr. Wagman to check him to make sure he didn't have any of the same heart problems that Corbin has. He had a great check up and Dr. Wagman feels confident that everything is ok with him. He wants to see him back in a few weeks just to be sure, though.

1st trip to the doctor

Max went to the doctor for the first time today. It was uneventful, just a weight check. He was 7 lb. 15 oz. when we left the hospital and that is what he weighed today too. He probably lost a few more ounces once we got home and is started to gain now. The nurse who checked him wasn't concerned.
Today was also my first day home alone with both boys. Well, Ryan went to work yesterday but just for a few hours. The boys were very good today. If every day is like this then we are going to have a great summer!
