A few videos from June.

Playing hide & seek with grandpa and getting maybe a little TOO excited.

If there is one thing Robbie loves more than anything else, it's music. Just before bedtime, he just had to boogie out the last of his energy.

Glimpses of hope

Robbie still rarely drinks anything. Most days we consider it a success if he lets us keep a cup on his tray. He's made huge strides in his eating, but liquids are still a great challenge.

However, occasionally we get a glimpse of hope. It's usually a hot day when he's been running around, though not always. But he'll just grab the cup and start to drink. It's never a lot. Sometimes it's a few sips, maybe an ounce. This particularly day, though, it was a few.

It was a very warm day and the kids were playing outside at daycare. Robbie came in and grabbed another boy's cup and started to drink. They gave him his own and he kept drinking. When David arrived to pick him up, he wouldn't give up the cup even to get into the car. When he got home, he kept going, eventually draining it. He wouldn't let go to have it refilled, so David just got him another.

Because of his lack of experience, he's not very good at it, and he certainly got more on himself than in him, but he was having a good time and no way would we stop him. I got home from work to find this waiting for me. It was a great day!

If only I could figure out how to climb up there and jump off.

Robbie's friend Olivia turned 2 on June 26. She had an Elmo themed party, so we borrowed an Elmo outfit from a daycare friend and joined the fun.

Recently, a friend of mine had a new baby girl named Gabriella. We were excited to go meet her and couldn't wait to get a picture of the kids together. What is that they say about best laid plans?

Robbie was very upset at the notion of having to share his space with Gabby.

Well, maybe if Jen holds Gabby........or not...

Okay, let Mommy try to cheer him up. That's better.

OH NO! That baby is back again!

Gabby doesn't know what's going on, but clearly, it is time to cry. Welcome to parenthood, Jen!

For Father's Day this year, I stole an idea from the Internet had the bright idea to make David a picture frame with some photos of Robbie in them, spelling out D-A-D.

This proved to be quite challenging. The letters are metal and kind of heavy. Robbie hated them. I spent a good hour chasing him around trying to get him and the letter in the same photo, but of course, by the time I convinced him to hold one and grabbed the camera, he'd moved on to other things.

Fortunately I got daycare involved later and they were very helpful. The final product:

But there were a number of outtakes:
At first, he was happy to carry it around, but I couldn't get a picture.

Then he was just tired of the me trying to get him to hold it "right."

Finally he just gave up. LET ME OUT OF HERE.

Even at daycare, he was sick of the paparazzi.

Really, it's a good thing he's cute.

The Angel & the Devil

I don't think anyone has explained to Robbie that our youngest cat is the feisty one. Good thing he seems to have a soft spot for Robbie.

Oh hi!

Will you be my friend?

Because I love you.

Daddy and Me

Each night when David and Robbie get home, they lay in the big bed and watch The Simpsons. And snuggle.

Sometimes they just lay around

But sometimes they just need more.
Climbing up

Getting comfy...

Ahhh.. much better.
