Several weekends ago, we drove down to OSU to watch Erin’s senior recital. It.was.incredible! We always knew we had a great performer in the family (James’ mom is a fabulous flutist as well!), but this recital just blew us away! Corban did well listening and sitting *still* (not in the vocabulary of a one-and-a-half-year-old!) and saved his loud and long screech for after the applause was all over. One of the most fun features of this recital, however, was not the recital itself but the advertising for it. Check out the top right corner:

Haha! Thanks, Aunt Erin! We almost didn’t come due to Corban’s dog bite, but we’re SO glad we did!

On the four-hour ride home, we stopped for supper. We showed Corban how to use the apples with the yogurt dip.He used one apple slice for the entire dip container!

And then proceeded to drink the rest.


We have 10 weeks to go before Baby Girl makes her appearance. TEN! We’re getting sooo excited…and nervous! We’ve been given so many things and really only have a few things to purchase, some of which we’re still making decisions on. (Some of the purchases will be different if we’re in a house vs. an apartment.) I’m starting to feel a little tired but overall, really great! We’re truly enjoying these last few weeks as a family of three!



James’ eyes have been coming home from work tired and strained (so they tell him). So we decided to send him in for an eye appointment, his first in 15+ years! While the doc said he barely has a prescription need, he did since James sits at a computer screen 8+ hours every day AND since he’s actually farsighted, glasses would be quite beneficial. We picked them up yesterday, and James spent the better part of the evening reading things with and without his glasses, constantly exclaiming, “It’s not blurry! I didn’t even know it was blurry until I put my glasses on!”

We debated with some super trendy thick black plastic frames, but we both agreed this pair made a strong enough “I’m not boring” statement, while still matching his style. Doesn’t he look dapper?!



Corban’s vocabulary increases every single day! I took a video of a couple of his favorite mealtime phrases; thought you might like to see:
