Stronger emotions

Corb has always reacted when little kids come by him but this is extreme. He was sooooo scared!!!! BTW...If I wasn't trying to tape this, I wouldn't have asked Jackson to go back by Corb until he was used to him. It breaks my heart to see him scared but I'm so proud of him that he's able to understand enough to have this strong of a reaction.

I have many things to update about but I haven't had time to sit down and write. My laptop is toast and my PC is upstairs, I don't like being that far from Corb.

Corbie's party

Thank you to all who were here with us in heart.

Here are a few pictures of the party.

Corb has never done well with the sun (or wind) so he was only outside for about an hour. Then Jenny brought him in to eat and have a bath etc. We always try to keep his bed time as consistence as we can. He doesn't cry at all anymore at bed time and I would like to keep it that way. If it ain't broke don't fix it LOL.

Also there's a video of Jackson's first time on a trampoline. I couldn't get it to upload here so it's at dropshots.

3 hours and 45 mins

I can't remember if I mentioned that I sent Corbin's PCW company a huge packet for them to send in, while asking for more hours. In the packet I explained, detail by detail adding up for 13 hours a day, I of course knew I wouldn't get that many, but it would have been nice to get more then 3 hours and 45 mins. It's better then none I guess.

I was pretty sad but I'm feeling better about it now.
The new hours will be 7:30-12:15 and 4:30-7:30

Sarah and Jenny should be able to stay. And the new Tiffany is hoping to stay. So we need one more and then a float.

“Miniature therapist....”

I'm unsure if I have ever mentioned my councilor Linda, well she has been my savior, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to handle what has come into our lives.

Last week Linda told me I deserved Sarah. As she is a wonderful worker, she loves Corb so much & I'm proud to say she's my friend (until now, I haven't had any in-person friends, since before Corbie's accident) & her son, Jackson has become our families “Miniature therapist....” We all have been working through our feelings (even Bill lol)

Please take a look at his dropshots “First skating” and “Walking/playing with Jackson”

First Circus

Corb was to young to bring him to the circus before his accident and since his accident I didn't feel he could handle something like that but I decided it was time to try.

Me, Austin, Noah, Corbin, Sarah and Jackson. (Shhhh she's Corbin's PCW and her 17month old son) went to the Circus today. It turned out to be a GREAT try. Besides right when it started he did amazing.

When they first started they turned off the lights and started talking at the same time, that scared him pretty bad but he didn't cry. Other then that the only time he jumped was when the popcorn/peanut, ect. people came by. A toy guy noticed that he scared Corb and he bent down and asked me, would he like one of these and he gave Corb a light up toy. I almost teared up :-)

He watched a lot of the acts. If he started to loose interest I would just ask him to look at “what ever” (he liked the elephants the most) he would look right away. He was really bored though LOL. It was boring, so boring Jackson fell asleep for over half of it LOL

After the show Sarah just came back to the house and started early. While she was working with Corb I was playing Jackson and Austin said you play with her kid more then your own (I know he didn't mean it) but oh my goodness did that break my heart, I ran to the bathroom crying. I pulled myself together and then as soon as Austin seen me he asked what's the matter mom and I tried to say lets not talk about it and I lost it again UGH!!! I haven't cried about Corb in a very long time but WHOA that was harder then I thought. Playing with a toddler made me miss Corbin in away but I really don't remember him anyway.

After they left I laid by him telling him how much I loved him, tears rolling and he was just looking and looking at me, I think he understood I was sad.

I have a few videos to add on dropshots but it's getting late so I will upload them tomorrow.
