Passing myself

There is a saying that goes, "I'm running around like a chicken with his head cut off!" Well, that is what I have been doing. But of course I was doing that before I had a child; even more so now though! I run around so much that I am sure I pass myself about 5 times a day!

Now, things about Corban:

-Corban will be 8 months on the 20th.
-He has 2 teeth on his bottom gums
-He can scoot to reach a toy but is not crawling yet. He gets the arms up, then the -knees but not sure what to do from there
-He has adapted very well to daycare and has even given me the look that seems to be saying, "You're here already? I'm not ready to leave!" But at the same time he is quick to give the BIGGEST smile in the world when he see's you walk into the room.
-I love our Daddy-Son time in the afternoons when I pick him up from daycare. It is just he and I until Mommy gets home
-He loves to talk, though we do not know what he is saying
-He is still not sleeping completely through the night. We were almost there but then he got a double-ear infection, which he is currently taking meds for, so hopefully SOON he will start sleeping through the night!
-He makes "maaa" sounds that sound like he is saying maamaa, which he probably is but I won't admit to it but on Saturday he did start the "daa" sounds! (yea for me!!!)
-He loves his food and when Jennifer breast-feeds him he IS NOT satisfied with just eating off one side.
-He hates wearing shoes and socks
-Corban has started learning the word NO from mommy and daddy! No, on taking the shoes off, pulling mommy's hair, biting mommy, etc. He gives a "Jennifer" look when he is told NO! (don't tell her I told you though)

There is much, much more but as you can see, he is growing and growing fast!

On to other news:

I am running again for City Council. The Justice Department did approve the voting at large and having 6 council seats so HOPEFULLY I will win again and be seated by the 1st of January 2010. Nov. 10th is the election day! Get out and vote if you live in the area! Your vote DOES count! Last year I won by 3 votes!!!

Jennifer is enjoying her job at the bank and is thinking about coaching Travel Volleyball when the season comes back around.

Our house is still for sale - going on 3 months. My next step will be to take an ad out in the paper for a couple of months and see where it goes from there.

We are praying about a few things and asking & seeking for Gods Will on somethings. Lord, show us YOUR way!

Daycare and New Job

Yesterday was Corban's first day of daycare. I dropped him off about 9:15 because he had a doctor's appointment first thing. When I picked him up his teacher said he did great except that he would not let her hold him. Which is weird because he loves for anyone to hold him. The reason she would hold him is because she was trying to feed him. The only thing I can think is that since she is a woman he thinks that he should be feeding from her because that is how he lays on mommy when he is eating. When I give him a bottle he has no problem eating. Hopefully he will get better.

He looked so tired yesterday afternoon when I got there. He was dozing off and when he saw me he just looked at me for a minute and then fell back to sleep. When we got home I feed him and then he went down for a nap.

This morning I dropped him off at 6:34 so he is going to have a L-O-N-G day. Of course there are things I wanted to tell his teacher but I forgot. I might just have to check on him during my lunch to see how he is doing!

On another note...Jennifer started her new job yesterday. She left the house about 6:30am to be there at 8am. After a long day, she made it home about 5:45pm. Needless to say ALL of us were more tired than normal and was in need of MUCH rest, but not before I cooked a good ole southern homestyle meal. Boneless Fried chicken, green peas and new potatoes. YUMMY! And the fried chicken was fried in a cast iron skillet that I have eaten many of a food out of when I was a young boy in Perry, FL. I got it from my Granny. I know for sure that the iron skillet is as old as I am if not a few years more so you know the food is tasting good when it comes out of the skillet!

All in a days work!

5am trip to the Hospital for surgery, many questions from nurses, quick visit with the surgeon, surgery on baby boy, one less boil on baby boy's bottom, trip home, diaper change, dad, mommy and baby to bed! Back awake 3hrs later wishing I was still in bed.

Corban did great and we are glad that the doctor removed it completely. We go back in a week for a check up.

Thanks for all your prayers!!!
