From Brian: Yesterday, Robert went to the first birthday party of his friend Clementine. I took a photo of him (shown above). Happy birthday, Clementine!


Below is a photo from dinner tonight. We went to Outback (reminiscent of dining there just before Robert was born at https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2008/07/19/dinner-before-the-beanie/) and Robert reminded us that he loves straws and cups of water now (click here to recall)!

Would You Like Rings with That?

From Brian: After we returned home from our trip to Southern California on one week ago (Sunday, September 13), I showed Robert how to play with the rings-and-peg toy. Sure, he had played with it previously, but this was his first “formal instruction.” By first thing Tuesday morning (September 15), he was an expert! Check out the video below:

From Brian: On Wednesday, Goo-Poo, Dave, and Adrienne Goo-Goo flew into San Francisco. For the next four nights, we had various dinners out with various combinations of people! Above is a photo of Wednesday’s dinner and below are photos of Thursday’s dinner.

By the way, it’s become so much easier with Robert since he’s learned to drink from his own cup!

From Brian: When she was a newborn baby, I held Kayla (pictured above and below) in my arms. We took a cute photo of her and I. (There is/was a digital version of the photo somewhere, but I don’t know where it would be.) Now, here she is holding my baby!

Our Trip to Southern California

From Jen: Robert and I headed to Southern California on Labor Day. We had a good time with Grandma Carol and Grandad in Santa Clarita on Monday and Tuesday before heading down to see Grandpa and Grandma Pam Wednesday and Thursday. We went back to Santa Clarita on Thursday night and stayed until this morning (9/13).

Here are some pictures and a video from the trip. There aren’t a lot, as Brian is always better at remembering to take pictures than I am.

First up, a stop at Casa de Fruta in Hollister on the way down south. Grandad took Robert for a ride on the carousel. He wasn’t too thrilled with the horse, so they eventually moved to another seat.

On Tueday, we spent most of the day with our good friends Erinn and Jeannie, as well as Erinn’s children Hannah and Brady. Brady and Robert decided to try on some of Hannah’s headbands.

Brian joined us on Saturday and drove us home Sunday. We stopped in Coalinga at Harris Ranch to stretch our legs and change Robert’s diaper.
