Today, our little man turns 5! Let’s take a look at Corban’s Journey! Corban’s arrival 2 months early was a very scary moment for the whole Amy Adele family. He weighed only 2 lbs 3 oz but Corban quickly showed the world that he would be a fighter!
At 2 weeks old Corban weighed just under 3 lbs. To give you some prospective, a bag of coffee beans weighs about 3 lbs! Corban came home on April 30th 2009 at one month and 2 days old. Amy was a little nervous bringing home such a little guy, but the whole family was ecstatic to have their little miracle home and thankful that the first big hurdle for Corban was over.
Over the next year Corban grew and functioned like any other newborn. He even got a little chubby! (See picture below for chunky cheeked baby awesomeness!)
Corban tackled other hurdles with ease! Going to physical therapy and wearing his helmet didn't keep him from big smiles and giggles! This picture was taken on his first birthday!
At 20 months Corban took his first steps on November 9th 2010. Amy has been in chase mode ever since!
Corban tackled walking and continued to grow and change, slowly but surely. Let’s fast forward a bit…. Here is Corban at 3 years old. He is smaller than other 3 year old's, and developmentally is currently somewhere between 1 1/2 and 2 years old. As all preschoolers do, he gave Amy and her husband plenty of practice at patience!
Now, let’s jump forward to today! (Because I am too excited and can’t wait anymore!) Today is Corban's 5th birthday! That’s a BIG milestone for a little man! He loves all things wheel related! Motorcycles are his favorite!
Corban is still small for his age, and continues to face some obstacles developmentally. He is in currently in K4 but is not quite ready for kindergarten next year. He will be in K4 again next year to make sure he’s extra ready! :) The Amy Adele family has learned a lot from Corban! He is teaching us to just take our time with him and that keeps us on our toes! Thanks, from our family to yours, for celebrating Corban’s big day with us!
