Sweet Cory

Cory is just about the sweetest thing I've ever seen, and one of the funniest, too. And he's growing so fast - someone make him stop! Doesn't he just look so long and lean here? Don't let the camera fool you though - usually, he's a little more plump.

Cory's really starting to talk a lot. And he's very tonal (I remember Iain being so, too). For example, the words for cheese and drink are the same except for the intonation. He also says, among other things, cat, chicken (new today), pacifier (pah-pah, with a very soft p sound - almost an f), please, bye-bye, bus, shoes, socks, truck, tractor (tah-tah!), and of course, Dada and Mama. That last one is my favorite. And he nods yes with insanely serious, soulful eyes that I want to do whatever he wants. Hypnotic.

He knows some signs, too: bus, car, bike, shoes, socks, please, thank you (done with such flair!) and my favorite: airplane. It looks just like bus, but it has sound effects. :)

Okay, one more funny story for now: yesterday, the boys were taking a bath. Cory asked to get out before Iain did, as usual. So Jeremy took him to the bedroom, dried him off, dressed him in his warm blue footie pajamas, and let him loose. I was picking up Iain's room (next door to the bathroom), when I heard Iain say, "Um... Cory falled in." I went into the bathroom, and there was Cory, grinning, soaking wet and totally clothed, back in the bathtub! Made me laugh - Cory's mischief and Iain's reaction.

So I got Cory out again, stripped him to his diaper, and was trying to find some new pjs for him. He put on his bahama hat and this is what he did next:

Love that kid!

So big! He's going to stay in my mind as the tiny baby that I saw last year.
