Thirty-Five Months Old!

From Daddy: Well, this post is actually a couple of days late, but better late than never.

San Diego

Packing in Santa Clarita 1

On the morning of June 10, everyone packed up and left Grandma and Granddad’s. They had enjoyed their vacation, but it was time to come home to daddy!

It would be quite late before everyone got home. And then there was another adventure!

On Saturday, June 11, Mommy, Daddy, Robert, and Auntie Alison flew down to  San Diego. This was Robert’s very first plane trip and he was fantastically well-behaved, despite a roughly two-hour delay in take-off. We spent much of the time chasing each other through the terminal. Robert also liked scaling the shoeshine booth steps.

That night at a late dinner, Robert barely lasted until dinner was served before falling asleep. Mommy and Daddy attended Marc and Jayna’s wedding the next evening while Robert behaved well with Auntie Alison. We flew out on Monday and spent a couple of hours on the plane before we were permitted to take-off. Robert had a terrific time speaking with the pilot while he described the instrumentation in the cockpit. Robert even got to play with some controls. (He immediately wanted to leave the co-pilot’s seat while Daddy placed him in it!)

This Weekend So Far

Uncle Albert returned to town this weekend, and we had the opportunity to spend some time with him. Robert and Daddy had breakfast with Uncle Albert on Saturday (actually, Robert devoured three hotcakes at McDonald’s while Uncle Albert and Daddy spoke) and then later on we played bowling and tennis on the Wii. Uncle Albert doesn’t know if he’ll be in town for Robert’s birthday, so he brought Robert some early birthday presents.

Robert calls them “Big Buzz” and “Big Woody,” and loved them right away! He immediately started playing with them and he took on their voices so that they could speak with each other. It was so cute!

We had a minor head lice scare earlier this week (which hopefully proved to be a non-issue), but the shagginess of Robert’s hair made it a convenient weekend to get a haircut. Robert and Daddy wandered down to Salon de Annie and waited our turn. Robert has become quite accustomed to the place and knows exactly where the play area is. Next, we each had a haircuts without incident and Robert knew that his customary reward is that his request for a lollipop is honored. Daddy asked what color lollipop he wanted. He exclaimed, “Blue!” and was so incredibly smiley and happy that he got it. Actually, the lollypop turned his mouth purple!

Afterward, Mommy joined us for a big lunch on Irving Street before walking home.
