From Brian: Yesterday morning, Robert wanted to watch TV. So what did I find? The “Earth” Channel on Dish Network (channel 212 on Dish Network). It’s a still image of Earth with some soft music in the background. Now, Robert likes to say, “Earse! Earse!”
(Originally, he said, “Munna! Munna!” which is his way of saying, “Moon, moon,” but I corrected him.)
Sleepy drowsy baby
From Brian: On Friday, Robert and Mommy had lunch at El Indio, a restaurant reviewed on the Food Network’s show “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.”

Later that evening, we met our friend Gina for dinner. Robert fell asleep on the way there, but he woke up in time to see Gina and her sister Valerie later on. That was a late night for Robert, but it was a fun day.
