Zoo was fun - Icecream was YUM!

Yesterday Corbin had his first trip to the zoo with his friend Noah.  Everyday he wakes up so exicted and ready to tell me all about what he would like to do. He yammered on and on about the cows he saw the day before out on my Aunts farm where he met more of his family including Great Grandma - or GG Babushka.  My grandma has been waiting a long time to meet this little man and the sweet tears in her eyes as Corbin sat on her lap and gave her "nose" (eskimo kisses) was priceless.  I was so happy that he stopped long enough to let Grandma get a good look at her first Great Grandson.  My cousin Connor also took a special shine to Corbin - and Corbin to him.  The visit, the trampoline, the kids, the cows, the car ride... it was a banner day for Corbin and the excitement of it carried over into Zoo day.  Well, Zoo day... he was so excited to run and explore and see and do.  And all that he certainly did!  It amazes me how much his little mind retains and how quickly.  Yes, we talked about every animal we saw and he heard their names repeated over and over but when we sat down at home and he pulled out his Jungle set of toy animals and he announces to me - "Mama - Giraffe! and then Mama, Zebra" my jaw dropped.  He is a little sponge and will be talking in English full time soon... I wonder if my ears will bleed in English the same as they do in Russian??? He is a non stop talker - and the mix of Russian and English takes some attention to converse with... I know I'll miss it when it's gone.  I have a feeling the Zoo will be a place we spend lots of time... next stop, the amusement park and watching Ashton at hockey camp :)  Can't wait until he gets to try skating himself!

Hahahahha...your ears WILL bleed. Hannah was the same age as Corbin when we brought her home and she is a non stop talker for sure. I think after three years of pent up "speach" it just all comes out. We often joke about missing the quiet little girl we met in Russia.
