Busiest Month EVER

This month has been the busiest month of my life. And it all started last month when we were in NJ. Then the first weekend of May I was in NJ for the bachelor party. This past weekend Allyson went into the hospital for a minor medical procedure and Sunday was Mother's Day. Busy. Next weekend work is moving to a new building and there's a small chance that I might have to actually work on the weekend. And finally on Memorial Day weekend we have a wedding to attend in the lovely state of West Virginia, which incidentally is open for business.

Sprinkled in through all of this madness, TV is trying desperately to win back my affection by showing as many first run episodes of all of my favorite shows as they can, like Smallville, The Office, The Big Bang Theory and Bonanza.

And of course there's also the kid. The kid is growing in leaps and bounds and pretty soon he'll be flying, but for right now he's trying really hard to walk, chew his food, talk, play. He starts swimming lessons on the 27th. Diaper Dip is what they call it, but I plan on throwing him in the pool and seeing how he does on his own.

Now please enjoy this video. It's about three or four weeks old.

Ginormous Boobs said...

I want to go back to being dreadfully bored...this busy stuff is seriously taking away from all the blogging time.

Melissa said...

Max seriously is the CUTEST baby boy!!! Love the fishie kisses! He certainly was enjoying his cookie! :-)
I think you should get him into modeling and perhaps some tv work so you dont have to work outside of managing his career!
Have fun at your many events this month!

Bonnie Blue said...

OMG is he cute. I want one. I really do. Gots to get a baby daddy.

He's just all smiles. I wanna hug him.

2 trips to the Garbage...I mean Garden state? You really are a glutton for punishment.

Big Pissy said...

SUCH a doll baby!!!! :)

Patti said...

Too cute. I love how he waves and then looks at his hand like, "What the hell is going there??"

Jay said...

Hope Allyson is doing okay!

The pounding the table and waving was just practice for getting the attention of the waitress to bring him another beer.

Don't tell me you missed the season finale of The Hills?!? It was totally off the hook!

Chris H said...

Very cute bubba... but I don't want another one... no way! I know what they morph into... I REALLY DO! Just you wait and see.

madame x said...

Oh Geez...you need to make a bunch more of those!

Joshua said...

Yeah, that does sound like a full month.

You've done a lot more than I have, but I'll be sure to keep busy next month.

Pink said...

he's jaded by stardom. I think Max is waving bye bye, let me eat my darned biscuit in peace, dad dude.

How 'bout takin' the critter for a stroll and getting some walks in with me, Corks? You said this would be our year...lets get at that walking spree any way we can...sure Max won't mind being pushed around in the fresh air :)

Terri said...

babies are such cute little mimickers! I love the fish lips! we need more Max. plain and simple - more Max. I really don't care how busy you are...more Max - you hear me?

Tod said...

I hates busy.

So Max is doing impressions now? Have you taught him that Vulcan thing with the fingers?

HoosierGirl5 said...

Corky- I know how you feel. I have my oldest graduating from high school, the other 3 still want to have a life, school is wrapping up.....well, you get the idea! Round and round and round we go.

Great video of Max, as usual. He's a doll!

katie said...

i thought Max was gnawin' on a rib there at first or somthin'. :)

god, he's cute, Corky! i mean, like exceptionally cute. loved the video!

have a great day!

furiousBall said...

once again, i had the wittiest comment ever only to be thwarted by ginormous boob's boobs

nikki said...

I feel ya on the busy part. May- both of my boys' birthdays, my anniversary and all the rest of the day to day crap!

Love the video!

Leighann said...

That was cute, even if it is OLD!

Hope Allyson is okay :)

Knight said...

At first I thought Max was chewing on a bone. Check out those cheeks! You could use those as extra storage for winter clothes and stuff. Ah! His cuteness is killing me!

Biscuit said...

Good lord, that makes the uterus do flipflops! He's the cutest!

I hear you on the busy. I've been a bad bad bad bloggy friend.

Burfica said...

He's so cute he makes one's eyes hurt. hehehehehe

I know what you mean about being busy, with the move, and we have to still clean the old lot, get some fences built, get the skirting on, all this before it gets to hot.

Steph said...

CUTEST BABY EVER! Ok, next to mine. Don't you just love the baby wave? Like they have to use the whole wrist to get the action just right?

Guilty Secret said...

Diaper dip? Is it me or does that sound a bit gross?

I can't watch any more of your videos, Corky. The cuteness just hurts.

Dana said...

Holy smokes Corky! Look at the meat-hooks on little Mr. Max! Something tells me he's going to be built just like his daddy - I see a gun show in his future!!

CRUSTYBEEF said...

I hope that your wife is feeling better and that it wasn't anything serious..here's to hoping it's an appendix issue, gallbladder, or female cysts..

And your little guy..so adorable!
When are we going to see him in superman gear?? Do I have to send you some? they'll be hand me downs, but they're basically brand new. :)

Cute!

Always,
Elizabeth

Nancy said...

Too too cute!

I love those fish-lip kisses.

pilgrimchick said...

Cute video.

Let me know how the whole throwing-the-kid-in-the-water swimming instruction goes. If it works, I'll try it out on myself.

TheBirdman33 said...

Is he coming to West Virginia with us? It is crazy how busy this month is for us. I'm glad Allyson is going good.

And the Big Bang THeory just keeps getting better and my crush on the blonde keeps getting bigger

DJ Kirkby said...

Adorable as usual! I will leave it up to you to decide if I mean Max or you...

bonnie said...

Precious baby. Is he mirroring you? I can just see you waving to him and doing that kissy thing. I doubt you're eating that biscuit though.

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Diaper Dip? Now that doesn't sound very tasty, what an odd name for a class. I learned to swim when Papa dropped me off at the end of the fishing dock, way back when.
Hope June is calmer for you. Want to get me a spoon when you go to West Virginia? A souvenier spoon?
Yes, I beg blatantly.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

hmm.. to encourage your kid to fly, you should totally buy him a cape. it would look super cute too!

Canadian flake said...

Awwww your Max is such a handsome hunk...and a future crime fighter too...but you think he will be able to wear tights?? LOL

Casdok said...

He is the cutest!

Theresa said...

Max is so delicious, I could eat him up!!! ... not in Hansel & Grettel's wicked witch way ... more like the yummy love-him-to-death way!
It's amazing how powerful all that cuteness can be.

Crashdummie said...

omg i just think i died by cutness-overdose!

VE said...

Sure, sure, disappear and then show us baby videos to win us back...

Pud said...

March was that kind of month for me.

Your baby is adorable!

captain corky said...

Mike: Thanks!

Ginormous: I agree. I need a heavy dose of boredom.

Melissa: I worry too much that if I get him into TV he'll grow up to be like Danny Bonaduce. ;)

Bonnie Blue: He's like a drug. After the first hug, there's no going back. ;)

Pissy: He's a blast

captain corky said...

Patti: He really likes waving to people. On our way back from NJ he waved at a little girl and a junkie. LOL

Jay: Thanks! She's doing good. I've never seen one episode of the Hills. Is it any good?

Chris H: LOL! We want at least two more. ;)

Madame X: Pretty soon we're going to go back to the factory. ;)

Joshua: I hope to be not so busy next

captain corky said...

Pink: Sounds like a good plan. Max likes going to new places. He went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago and loved it.

Terri: More Max on the way! ;)

Tod: Me too! I haven't had a chance to teach him the Vulcan salute because we're still working on his primary language of Klingonese. ;)

Hoosiergirl5: Maybe we'll both get a chance to rest a bit this Summer. ;)

Katie: I don't plan on giving him bones until he at least has all of his teeth in. ;)

captain corky said...

Furiousball: It happens every time. ;)

Nikki: When do we get a day off? Maybe when Max is 20? ;)

Leighann: Thanks! She's doing good.

Knight: I think I'm going to have to look into getting him a few bones. I hear it's good for his teeth. ;)

Biscuit: Me too. I hope to catch up this weekend, but I just found out I have to work Saturday. Not fun!

captain corky said...

Burfica: This busyness is for the birds! Let's boycott.

Steph: It takes a lot of work. I'm still perfecting my wave and I'm almost 38. ;)

Guilty: I'll let you know how the first Dip goes. ;)

Dana: LOL! Do you think Rockdog will be there to see it too? ;)

Crusty: She's doing good. And we got lots of pain killers from the doctor. Yummy.

captain corky said...

Nancy: Thanks! He loves making faces. Lately he's been making an Owl face.

Pilgrimchick: I'll be sure to let you know. I sure hope I don't get kicked out of the class for doing that. ;)

Matty: Yeah, he'll be there. The Big Bang Theory was pretty good this week. I like that Howard kid, he's a real freak.

DJ Kirkby: Both of us for sure! ;)

Bonnie: No he was doing most of that on his own.

captain corky said...

Sassy: I'll look for one while I'm there.

Tequila: I'm sure he will have lots of capes, just like Daddy has. ;)

Canadian Flake: Super Heroes don't seem to wear tights anymore. Now it's just leather or plain clothes.

Casdok: Thanks!

Theresa: His cuteness is stronger than any drug I've ever done. ;)

captain corky said...

Crashdummie: Welcome to the other side. ;)

VE: Whatever it takes! ;)

Pud: Thanks! I'm glad you're getting time to take it a little easier now. ;)

Heart Of Darkness said...

Love the kid. Maybe because he's somebody elses and I can pause him anytime... :D


Smallville? Dude, I just lost all respect for you! LOL

CarmenSinCity said...

awwwwwwww - that was super cute!!!!!

little wanderer said...

ah bless, the kid is just the best x

Cheryl said...

All of my favorite shows are ending, boo hoo. I guess I'll have to start reading again.

Too cute for words is what I have to say about Jr. Enjoy every moment before he's a teenager. Trust me.

Bizarro Aunt Jackie said...

Corky!! He's wonderful... Is it too late to put him on the ballot for the current election??? "Corky Jr. For President!!!"

fiwa said...

Awww... just what I needed, a little sip of Max, the cutest baby in the universe. How do you stand being around so much cuteness all the time?? That laugh is just too much.

Hope Allyson is doing ok. Take care of yourself and don't spin out of control with all this busybusiness.

lovins,
fiwa

CRUSTYBEEF said...

hmm, we have darvocets and vicodins over here due to Brian's fall down our stairs...plus muscle relaxers and klonopin..
whatcha want? :) jk.

Happy weekend!
Always,
Elizabeth

Peggy said...

That's what I like! Lots of Max making kissy faces and waving to the camera!

The Lone Beader said...

You just have to accept that fact that the rest of your life will be one long blur. LOL.

abbagirl74 said...

Max is honestly the cutest baby I have ever seen. Look at those cheekers! And that fish kiss is so adorable! What a doll!

Ashley Ladd said...

The baby's adorable. I never heard swimming lessons, even for tots, called "diaper dip". How cute. Thanks.

Heart Of Darkness said...

Okay, how about a new post... like now...? :)

VE said...

Are you still milkin' this "busiest month" thing?

Ashley said...

Not that I would recommend this, but there is a phenomenon where infants can actually swim in water, but they then lose that ability until they learn it again later. I saw it in an IMAX film at the Museum of Science and Industry. I could have made it up for as great as this comment is, though!

CRUSTYBEEF said...

Seriously? Are you really that busy? Your readers although we understand how busy it is with child wife and work, but well, I for one can say I am jonesing for a Corky post.

Happy Tuesday.
Always,
Elizabeth

Tequila Mockingbird said...

fuck i love bachelor parties. i think i'm one of the only chicks i know who is allowed to come to them. which brings me to my next question, why the fuck didnt you invite me you salty pirate?

leslie said...

I'm giggling at Furiousball.
The man's eyes...er... heart is in the right place.

I think teaching Max the big lip smackin', beer drinkers *ahhhhh* right off the bat is the trick here...
Say hi to WesaGinny for me.

Barbara Doduk said...

Cute Video.

May has been crazy busy for me too, must be something in the stars.

Pink said...

hello? Hello!

Is this thing on?

I need my fix of Captain Corky!!!

Palm Springs Savant said...

Geez corky, you sure lucked out in the cutest baby in the world contest. Fun vid!

James Burnett said...

Long time Captain. Looks like things are well. And the kid is looking good and lively. Enjoy the bachelor party.

BTW, my blog address has changed. New address: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/burnettiquette

Cindy-Lou said...

Nobody watches Smallville anymore. But did you hear the Big Bang Theory got renewed? Score! Probably because you and I watch it. We may be the only ones.

Alekx said...

So I'm all with the sink or swim theroy but just know the diaper weighs them down and they usually sink. :-)

Farmer*swife said...

Haven't been here in awhile. May is completely the busiest month, like almost always!

Three and a half more days and school, T-ball, and the crap will be over for a few months of summer slow down and slumber.

We'll throw in a swim lesson here and there...but for the most part? Takin' it easy!

MAX is sooooooooooooo cute! Can't you just watch him forever! All day long...while he waves and munches and makes noises? I love parenthood. Even when it gets hard.

[Love the CBS Monday night line up: Big Bang, How I Met Your Mother, Two & a Half Men!!!]

Happy Sunday!

Damn, that kid is adoreable. Bet he takes that after his mom eh? ;)
