Last Tuesday, our friend Leanne was kind enough to do a photo shoot with Robbie. We needed a decent picture of Robbie's face for a print. Well, we got that and more!

This is Robbie's Easter outfit. I couldn't be more pleased with how the pictures came out. Thanks Leanne!!

I've learned to get on my firetruck, but I haven't quite figured the direction out yet.

Nobody cooler than me.

I love my shades.

Robbie has been in a phase of not wanting to nap at daycare. Some days it's as little as 30 minutes. Sometimes it catches up to him and he has to have an evening nap. (Which he hasn't required in months.)

Mommy's pillow is comfy.

Awake again, entertained by some balloons.

They are just so much fun!

When Robbie was very little, I loved my Moby wrap. It allowed me to go hands free while carrying him around.

As he's gotten older and heavier, we've used it less and less. He usually prefers to be running around anyway. I occasionally break it out if we're out and about and I don't feel like dragging the stroller with us. We do get the occasional odd look, mostly from moms who can't believe I'm still lugging him around, but I still find it easier than the stroller in the right situation.

On Tuesday, Robbie was super clingy. He's been having trouble napping at daycare and Tuesday was the worse- 20 minutes all day! By the time we got home, he was just overtired and cranky. I ended up giving him a short evening nap (which he hasn't done in months) but even after he woke up, he still was just whiny and refused to be put down.

David was at a meeting for work so I was on my own trying to get evening chores done. After the 3rd or 4th failed try to entertain him with toys, I thought I'd try the Moby. SUCCESS! He was happy and my hands were free!

A friend had recently wondered what a 23 pound baby looked like in a Moby, so I made sure to get some shots.

I just need snuggled, mom.

But I'll help you take a picture.

I tried to put him down again a bit later- no luck. So then we tried a front carry. Happy again!

Because of Robbie's cruddy lungs, he still gets a dose of steroids every night before bedtime. He tolerates the treatments pretty well as long as we keep him intertained. Fortunately, he still thinks "put something on your head" is the funniest game ever.

Making sure the hippo doesn't have boogies.

The Park

It's finally spring time here in The Lou. Wednesday was a particularly spectacular day, so I took a few hours off work and surprised Robbie at daycare. It was time for his first trip to the park!

As Robbie only started walking a few weeks ago, he'd never had the opportunity to walk on soft ground before. He was NOT a fan. He just stared at the ground and whined.

I drug him around by his hand for a few steps until he seemed to accept that the ground wasn't actually going to open up and swallow him hole. Then he got the hang of it.

He wandered around and found a big tic-tac-toe board that was quite fun.

Then we headed to the swings. The little girl next to him was very interesting.

HEY! Look how high she's swinging. HOW COOL IS THAT?

At that point, he swung a little bit and enjoyed himself, but it was short lived. He wanted down. As you can see in the pictures, they were not infant swings, so when he wanted down, he started to slide out of the seat and I had to grab him. At that point, he wanted to be held and was just finished with the park so we headed home.

Where he enjoyed a small snack.
