Max


Thank you very much for the kind comments folks! Allyson and I were very touched by all of your kindness. Max is getting better and better everyday. We should be home sometime next week. I've got tons of stories about the experience that I'm just dying to write.

This is a picture of Max from two days ago. Lots of wires just to make sure he's ok. And please don't be alarmed by the tube coming out of his head. That's just how I was downloading information about Superheroes and television to him (IV). It's out of his head now.

He is spending most of his time with us now, and is out of the Special Care Nursery except for when he's taking his meds. We can't wait to bring him home and show him his room.

Much more about Corky Jr coming from Captain Corky very soon.

Awww...he's so cute! I'm glad he's feeling better and that's pure genius downloading the superhero info that way. ;)

Feels Like Home said...

So glad that he is doing better!

Alicia said...

I LOVE HIM!!!!
He's so adorable!

Pink said...

He's adorable. Kisses all over him!

I'm so relieved you downloaded the necessary info to him. Its pretty rough being on the outside after 9 months. I'm sure he feels very secure now that he knows about the superheros.

Whew.

Jay said...

Yes! Mad Max had downloaded all the information he really ever needs to know. Well, there is the "other stuff" he'll need to know, but not until he'd older. ;-)

He looks like he's ready to hang out in his Social Club.

mjd said...

Corky, Max is a very sweet baby. I am glad that he is done with the crucial downloading and is getting better all the time. Soon you will all be home and showing Max his room as well as fitting him for his Super Cape. Take care.

Debbie said...

Congrats to you both! I think he looks like you ;)

When can we take him fishing?

Nancy said...

Simply adorable.

Good job on the download ... he'll show you he's backed it up next time you open a diaper.

(Max thinking: I'll teach Daddy a thing or two about "loading")

Canadian flake said...

Awwwww he is SUCH a sweetie. Did they ever find out what was the source of the infection?? Hope he is feeling better soon.

Gina said...

Really, he is just beautiful, and I honestly don't say that about every baby.

What a brave, strong little guy.

The Lone Beader said...

I love little Max. I will be saying lots of prayers for him, too:)

anne said...

how adorable is this baby!!!!!

nikki said...

He really is adorable. Unlike gina, above, I do say that about a lot of babies. BUT, I mean it with him. But, he's done uploading ALL super hero info in just a few days? He must be amazing.

Oh, wait, you focused on DC, and everyone knows Marvel are the more important and would take WAY more time.

HoosierGirl5 said...

Oh, sweet little Max. I can't wait until you can bring him home.

David said...

Can't wait to hear more! Good thinking downloading all that info like that-you don't have to waste time talking about non essentials! Now you can have good deep conversations about Sci-Fi!

Chucky said...

I can't wait to read what you got to say about all this.

Good luck!

What A Crock said...

aww wyou make me wanna knitt baby hats!!

can i make you guys baby hats!?!? please!?!?!? i can even put little puff balls on them!! :p

Heidi the Hick said...

Look waht happens when I leave hispeed internet land for a few days- people go and have babies!!!!

He's a seriously good looking baby and I am not just saying that. I had good looking babies so I know what I am talking about!!!

Way to go! Now go sleep and then feed your wife. Love to you all!

eric313 said...

Max is a fine name. Wasn't it the wife's front runner? Ah, I bet it seems like some kind of bargaining chip for future deals, but probably isn't. But you do have a son, now. Rock on!

Biddie said...

I am SO glad to hear that Max and Allyson are both doing better.
How's the download going then?
Big hugs.

RockDog said...

Max ROCKS! Can't wait to see him in his first Super Hero cape!

furiousBall said...

Does he know kung fu now?

kat said...

Oh he is so tiny and adorable. I think it was very wise to download information to him so quickly. He will be able to protect the universe much earlier this way.

Max is a cutie. Congrats to you both!

Metal Mark said...

Glad all is going well.

Nonny said...

Can't wait to hear your stories about the whole experience. Thanks to Max you now have a buttload of new material.

I forgot to mention last time how much I like the name Max. Any name with an "X" in it is just inherently cool.

Jerrster said...

excellent news there Corkster...glad your son is coming home soon...I have a Max too...mine is 23 and he's as bent as the old man...you gonna have some real fun being a POP.

Lady K said...

I'm really glad he's doing so much better! I can't wait to hear more stories. LOL about how you were downloading info to him. I'm sure he's an expert in karate now, too, right? hee hee!

Trundling Grunt said...

Damn, but he's a looker. You'll have to watch him. Congratulations to you all!!!

HoosierGirl5 said...

You've been nominated for a "Thinking Blogger" award! When you recover, check it out.

Big Pissy said...

So glad Max is doing better!

He's such a doll baby! :)

can't wait to hear all your stories..... ;-)

abbagirl74 said...

Hope the super heroes were whispering sweet nothings to the dear boy.

We miss you and the family!! Can't wait for you to come back!!

Cheryl said...

Ditto what everyone else said. Ah, that was easy!

So, you think you're going to have lots of time to write stories? Hah!

I did mean it when I said he's beautiful. Really beautiful. I look foward to when he's off his meds and home with you and Allyson.

jAMiE said...

What a beautiful little guy...I hope you get to take him home really soon!

Aunt Jackie said...

We could only dream of being so beautiful with tubes sticking out of us... :)


Still miffed he can't be named Bubba though... lol!!! j/k!

TheBirdman33 said...

I miss him already!
I can't wait to see the next set of pics where he is in his "strong hold" surrounded by the Legion of Heroes that is waiting for him.

When you get a house, I am hooking that boy up with a DOG!

Crashdummie said...

Max is a fitting name cuz I start thinking of Russel Criow & the gladiator... Corky Jr is a fighter :)

Much love from
Aunt Crashy ;)

Jenny! said...

Corky, seeing Max makes me want another so so badly! I hope all is well and you are loving every moment!

Fridaysweb said...

My girls and I have changed our opinion on newborns. Despite the obligation to think your own newborn is "cute", you have to admit that most newborns are... well... un-cute. Max is DEFINATELY an exception to that rule! He is beautiful. Thank God Allyson didn't let you name him Cletus! Congrats and wishes for a quick recovery and trip home :)

captain corky said...

8 more days and we'll be home folks. Thanks again for all of the love!

Twisted Cara Bear said...

Wow I've been out of the loop. He is BEAUTIFUL Corky! You did a great job. Congratulations!!!

Nauma said...

Oh Max is so sweet! He´s on my prayers. Hope you are at home now

Cheryl said...

Thank you for taking the time to visit us!

gawilli said...

He sure is beautiful, Corky. Thinking good thoughts for you and your family!

CRUSTYBEEF said...

congratulations! I've found your blog compliments of the wonderful Cheryl.

.great news!!..Welcome baby Cjr!
Always,
Crusty~

eric313 said...

Good luck with the eight more days. I bet time is moving really slow for you right now. But hang in there, it'll be back to it's breakneck pace in no time, you can bet on that.

Congrats, once more

Heart Of Darkness said...

Take care of one another!

CRUSTYBEEF said...

How's things with the little guy??
Always,
crusty~

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

Oh Corky, he is so beautiful!

Wizened Wizard said...

What a beautiful little guy! Just remember: they're born smarter than we are...

Congratulations and best wishes!

willSIX said...

Sounds like a scary time, Cap'n. But I'm very glad to hear that all three of you pulled through with style and grace. Of course, we expected nothing less.

Ms. Six and I can't wait to meet little Max. He is a super-cutie.
