A 16 month and his favorite things.

His favorite toy is his car that he rides in. He loves going on walks around the block. Now thats its cooled down its not so bad...we need to enjoy this weather before it gets too cold and we can't go on walks and to the park. He loves to play with cars around the house too. He will just push one around saying "vrooooom"-I think its quite cute. and of course I love when he can actually play by himself for a bit.
Favorite food is probably still grapes. He loves those things and eats probably way too many...its the easy go to food-at least its a fruit and not just crackers I have to tell myself. But this kids knows any treat, its crazy how he has never seen something in his life but knows its sugar somehow and wants it! I feel like we are eating all day long..just begging at the fridge. But I am figuring out its probably cause he eats so much fruit he digests so quickly plus his speedy metabolism just makes for a hungry boy all the time.
He loves to make a mess. Seriously I think he purposely does sometimes. haha I don't know how people keep up with their children sometimes...I only have one and I feel like I am just cleaning up one mess while he makes another and I can't quite get caught up. Just yesterday after a messy breakfast and I put new clothes on him...we go out for a walk and he happens to find mud and starts to play in it a bit and then slips..all over his hands, some of his shirt, down his pants and of course his shoes were covered it in...not a huge deal though but I did decided to keep him just in a diaper the rest of the day. Lunch time comes and it was a of those time where food is everywhere and he is absolutely a mess so of course we have to take a bath. Now this next one..I guess I can say shame on me because he thought it was quite funny to force a couple farts out and see the bubbles...oh boys...well I left him in a little too long after and he poops all over in the tub-good thing we had a lot of toys in with us this time too ;) he literally just laughed at me as I was cleaning it up. oh silly boy!
He is also obsessed with shoes as I think I have mentioned before...we have shoes in every room of the house. Every day he has to get either his shoes or Jesse's or mine and play with them. First thing he does when he wakes up sometimes is opens the drawers with the shoes and starts taking them out and staking them on the chair or bed or takes them to other rooms. I usually let him because it distracts him enough that I can get some other things done. But that also means shoes everywhere...and lately I am having a hard time finding matches.
He also always has to take out the utensils out of the drawer and play with the big spoons or spatulas...I have now learned that I have to keep the pizza cutter and peeler in a different place...You would think I would have just bought a drawer stopper thing by now. One of those things you don't think about when your at the store. Another thing I really need to lock up are my spices...if he's in the kitchen he's into one of these two things...I find spices all around the house as well but mostly in random cupboards and drawers and even in the garbage..
He still absolutely loves is Daddy. He gets so excited when he comes home but has to do something to show off when he walks through the door. He follows him around the house and wants to be by him constantly. Lately when Jesse has been picking him up he will just give him a big long hug. Sweetest thing. The other morning Jesse goes and gets him out of bed and a minute or so later I hear "Marissa are you witnessing this" I look into the room and Corbin just has his arms wrapped around him and just snuggling right up to him and he stayed like that for a good minute or so! He has done that to me a few times as well and its one of my favorite things to get a big hug from him!
Corbin loves to read books. He definitely has his favorite ones....that I can only read so many times than want to hide it! ha! He loves the ones with flaps or ones with animals. He is getting better with his animal noises. He is consistent with dog, cow, pig, horse, fish, frog, elephant for the most part. He doesn't say I whole lot..which the doctor said around 5 words at this age...those would be mom, dad, please, ball, shoes, grandma. Those are the words that he definitely knows he has said others but not baby-he knows what a baby is but also lifts up his shirt and says baby or when he sees any skin on Jesse or I he usually says baby..
well...I always say I am just going to write a few things that it ends up too long. oh well..I'll appreciate the documenting some day right? And if I don't get made fun of already for posting too many pictures on facebook or instagram here's a few extra! ;) (Its the way a document our life and remember things (: )
