From Brian: Some wonder why we have so many photos of Robert eating on the blog. The answer: Because he’s restrained and stays in the same place.
Saying Peak-a-Boo to Mommy
A couple of weeks ago, Robert refused to eat his pasta and instead made light of the situation by being cute and funny. Here are some great photos.
Saying Peak-a-Boo to Mommy. Again.
Unfortunately, by the time I turned on the video camera, he stopped performing. He just stalled.

Here’s bonus photo from a weird angle. You might be able to notice his cute striped sock.

From Brian: Robert has a toy cell phone that Mommy bought for him. He loves playing with it. Above is a video of him earlier today (or click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWGJLrGAIS8 to watch directly)
Also, here is a photo of Robert standing in front of Grandpa’s former green chair. He loves to climb on and off the chair.

Here are a couple of photos of Robert beside Grandma Carol’s and Granddad’s pool (under Granddad’s watchful supervision):

Finally, here he is laughing as Mommy tickles him on his changing table:
Tickled on the changing table
From Brian: Tonight at dinner, Robert looked upward at the chandelier in dining room. (Well, he often looks up at it, commenting upon the “circle,” or the circular arc created by the combination of the chandelier’s light bulbs.) He said, “One light out.” Mommy and I looked up and noticed that, sure enough, one of the light bulbs burned out. We congratulated him for noticing. I remarked that I was glad that someone in the family noticed! Then he said to the burnt-out bulb, “Night-night.”
Later tonight, I read him stories and put him into his crib to sleep. Usually, he goes right to sleep but he sat up in bed and extended his hands and arms to me. He make a noise that sounded like “ahrmh” which I didn’t understand. I gave him a hug and kissed the top of his head. He reached up with his left hand to touch my elbow. “Ehlbowh,” he said. Then he rubbed my arm and said, “ahrmh.” Oh, now I got it! He said, “arm”!
I asked him to “Go to sleep,” and he said, “Go sleep,” then dove into the corner of his crib and went to sleep.
Below are a photo of his peace pajamas (which he didn’t wear tonight):
Next is a photo of him in peapod pajamas doing some of his favorite things (playing with shoes, drawing, and wearing a hat):

From Brian: The above is a photo from a few weeks ago at Yeah-Yeah’s and Ngen-Ngen’s house, but tonight they, Arlene Goo-Goo, Uncle James, Ga-Ga, and Di-Di joined Robert and I for dinner tonight at our house!
From Brian: Tonight is Katia’s birthday dinner. I’m sure that Robert will enjoy it. Here are some recent photos of Robert and Katia’s big sister Maia:
They sit still, concentrating on the television at Robert's grandparents' house

Daddy and Beanie with the penguins
Penguins are so cool!
From Brian: It’s difficult for me to believe, but Robert’s only been going to zoos for one year! (Recall: https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2009/07/11/first-visit-to-the-sf-zoo)

All done with the photos now
