Two things I forgot about our trip to CO:
1. We discovered just how long Corbin can cry without stopping when he's DONE with being in the car. It's a very, very long time.
2. I felt like a mommy for the first time. Usually it's just me and Brit comforting Corbin, so I have nothing to make me think he "knows" us, because he's never had to deal with strangers. On our first day out there, Nonni was holding him and trying to comfort him and let me eat, but Corbin wasn't having any of it. I finally went in and took him from her, and he immediately calmed down once he was in my arms. He knows me! And better than that, he LIKES me! I'm not super excited about the clingy, mommy-only phase of childhood, but it's nice to be needed right now. I'm a mommy!!
(BTW, by the end of the week, I'm pretty sure he liked Nonni better than me....)
