Robert's very first official toothbrushing lesson last week
From Brian: It’s Monday! Time to brush your teeth…
Toothbrushing lesson continued
…and go to the office!
Robert visits Daddy's office, and later the family goes to lunch
Beanie sits among his toys
From Brian: The family went to a small pumpkin patch last week to purchase a few decorative pumpkins. (Next week we plan to buy the bigger jack-o’-lantern-type pumpkins.)

This particular pumpkin patch was unlike the one that he traditionally visits (Last year: https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2009/10/31/pumpkin-day, and the year before (his first visit to a pumpkin patch): https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2008/10/13/our-first-trip-to-the-pumpkin-patch), so we didn’t know how he would react. However, as you can see by the photos above and below, he was so incredibly happy.

Afterward, we all went out to dinner! (Recall: https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/ice-cream-mess-the-big-bathtub)
Duck and Truck 1
From Brian: One of Robert’s favorite toys is his riding truck. He got the truck for his first birthday and still rides it on occasion.

He also loves his Ducky, Both the duck and the truck were gifts from Grandpa and Grandma Pam. Thank you!

Yummy ice cream
From Brian: On Sunday, we went out to dinner as a family.
Robert at the table
Mommy and I shared dinner while Robert got an order from the kids menu.
Hmmmm. What should I order?
His dinner included a free ice cream cone!
At this moment, I can’t recall Robert ever having an ice cream cone to himself. He didn’t eat all of it, but he really enjoyed it (though his jacket did not).
Messy ice cream
Speaking of messes, on the following night (Monday), Robert had his very first bath in the big bathtub!

(His second bath in the big bathtub was shown in yesterday’s post.)
Kiss before bed
From Brian: Maia, Katia, and Alaina stayed over a couple of nights ago on Tuesday.
Playing in the bathtub
That meant pizza and a movie.
Robert eats pizza on his truck. Like he went to a drive-through.
While the girls had a blanket (the dark corner of which shows in the lower right corner of the photo), Robert only needed a pillow
Then Katia and Alaina joined Robert for storytime before bed.
Storytime with Katia and Alaina
From Brian: Due to Robert’s request, we played in the park and ate take-out dinner on a picnic bench. (Well, Robert wasn’t very interested in eating.) Here’s a video of Robert playing in the park in the early evening:

Asleep on Daddy
From Brian: We haven’t posted any photos in a while, so here are a couple.
