So we hit a few mile stones with Corban today and of corse I couldn't catch any of them on film! He walked from a laundry bin we have by the double sinks in our bathroom to the bathroom door. In essence he did like 4.5 steps without holding on to something and without being coaxed. He was also just cruising across the living room next to the couch kinda just bouncing his one hand along it for comfort purposes because it obviously wasn't holding him up at all. He would pick up a toy at one end of the couch, 'run' it over to me at the other end of the couch, then go back to do it all again. Considering the messy nature of the floor by the couch today there is also something to be said to his maneuvering skills... he's like a mountain goat! Oh, and he was saying "uh-oh" all the live long day. Again, I couldn't get him to do it on the phone with anyone because it's better when it looks like your mom (meeeee) is making it up... humph. some day right? anyway, congrats on your really really awesome web page Tina! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. How much would you charge to be my permanent digi. scrappin girl??? no amount would be too much it's adorable!!! gnight ladies and gents.

Cali trip explained finally!!

So that is kinda my cheater way of walking you through our California trip without all the stories I'm sure you're just dying to not read. But hey, the pictures are cute, and for those of you who would actually hear about the trip here's a quick run down:
October 24th: Centerville
October 25th: Fly in at 9:40 ish? and walk around San Fran.
October 26th: Nana watched Corban for us, and we (jack and I) went to six flags. (and jack barfed ha ha)
October 27th: Evan and Alysa (our niece and nephew) got baptized
October 28th: Walked to church in a balmy mid 80 degree weather (neener neener) Went to a BBQ and Bronwynn and Brad's house in Lodi
October 29th: Went shopping at the mall and discovered Illuminations a store that is desperately needed in Utah!!!
October 30th: Ran errands to get ready for Halloween
October 31st: HALLOWEEN!!! Went shopping a few more places to find a much needed skull cap for poor charlie brown! The whole kit and kaboodle came to Modesto. We had home made mac and cheese (yum yum!) and fruit salad, and pumpkin cake. We went out trick or treating, brad left some dog poo in a pumpkin or was a hoot.
November 1st: packed up and left for home

HOLA CHIQUITAS! & CHICOS...I have returned. kinda. This will be an atempt at a short but sweet blog in order to update y'all on my crazy. Jack, Corban, and myself all drove up to centerville on wednesday october 24th to sleep at my parents so that we could fly out to california in the AM. We were in California from the 25th of october until november 1st. Then from centerville jack and I parted ways for him to go back to the grind and me and corban went up to the Cabin until sunday. My mom drove Corban and I home on sunday before jack was off because corban had come down with a cold/ear infection. He was up all sunday night...litterally (unless you're counting the little 15-20 min periods where he didn't move but wasn't really asleep, then he slept maybe an hour and a half) We took him in on monday morning because he was sounding weezy. Needless to say now we have a Nebulizer (sp) that gives him some albeuteral (an asthma medication just to loosen all his chest muscles so that he can breathe easier). (Oh, and he's on a good dose of amoxacillin for his flamin huge ear infection. Poor little guy.) It may just be a virus so I'll take him back in on monday. He sounds much better now. No worries. He's also teething during this whole fun experience....He's got one tooth on the top that's just being stubborn. I'm probably going to make him chew on my pink slipper that he always attempts to chew on so that he can just cut that last tooth and stop the runny nose business. So all in all I'm home finally, but inbetween the three a day fifteen minute doses of the albeuteral (he has to inhale it through a mask thingy and it takes about fifteen minutes to finish up) and the two a day doses of the amoxacillin and his bottles and CRAZY picky eating habits right now (notice EVERY single peice of carrot spread across his tray neatly??? He thinks it's hilarious....geez)

I'm not even cleaning my house much less making time to put a nice little bloggy blog blog with trip pictures up yet. Considering the fact that corban won't nap in his bed with all the stuffyness of his nose and will only nap on me and adding in the point that he wants to sleep 29 hours a day because he's not feeling good I'm surprised that I've been able to shower each and everyday this week. Makeup's a whole 'nother story. well my hubby's home it's time to go to bed. Night.
