A Visit To Sonoma

From Jen:
Yesterday Robert and I visited our friends the Deweeses in Sonoma. One reason for going up was that Shannon’s Mom (known here as Nana Jeannie), her sister Erinn, and Erinn’s children are visiting from So Cal and we wanted to see them too.

I didn’t get nearly as many pictures as I would have liked (mostly because I kept forgetting where I had left my camera or I was busy holding Robert). Jeannie and Erinn both took some pictures, so I may post some of theirs if I can get them. Enjoy!!

Crawling Away from His Past

Ahh, the playmat. It used to be so much fun. April 26, 2009, 9:55 a.m.

From Brian: Robert is outgrowing his old toys! Remember the playmat? We used to be able to place him on the playmat and he wouldn’t leave.

Of course, there was also the jumpy chair. Oh, what good times we had!

Now he seems to have outgrown both the playmat and jumpy chair. Perhaps he finds them to be confining now. It is a little sad as we reminisce about the good old days! Below are photos and a video showing Robert crawling away from his playmat and jumpy chair.

A Family Visit

From Jen:
Brian’s Mom and Dad came over to visit us this afternoon before they leave for their first fair of the season tomorrow. We were also joined by Robert’s Aunt Arlene, Uncle James and Cousin Christopher. Robert LOVED having so many people around. Here are some photos of all the fun.

Robert Goes To The Mall

From Jen:
Today Robert and I took a quick trip to San Bruno and the Tanforan Shopping Center. Near one of the entrances they have this cute little play area for small children and since Robert is an expert crawler now (and pulling himself up whenever he gets the chance), we decided to give it a try. Here are some pictures and a short video.

Robert tried to talk to this little girl. When she toddled off, he crawled after her!!
