Feetie Pajamas

Mommy and Robbie wearing their favorite feetie pajamas. I shouldn't even share this embarrassing photo - but it was too funny to pass up! We spent the whole day just lounging around the house recovering from the weekend. All of our Christmas decor is up and we are ready to enjoy a warm fire and watch a Christmas movie with the Christmas tree lights on!
A close up of Granny's hands holding Robbie's hands.

Robbie and his Granny! Isn't she a looker??? Trust me, Granny has more energy than anyone I know! She made such delicious meals for the entire weekend and words can't even describe how good they all were! I even had the opportunity to have her famous "Maggie's" dressing!

Robbie and his Granny. This was actually such a funny moment. Robbie was getting fussy so Granny picked him up and sat down in her chair. Robbie was making little noises and cooing and Granny just kept talking to him telling him "I know, I understand, life is hard isnt' it?" and as soon as she would say that he would fuss a little and coo. It was like they were having their own little conversation . . . so adorable!

Mommy and her favorite little man. It is so amazing how fast he is growing and how much he is learning and accomplishing already.

Uncle Parker rocking Robbie to sleep for his parents. Parker is a great uncle - and so is Kyle - and we can't wait until they are ready to keep him so we can catch a movie or dinner!

The Robert Craven Lewises

Robert Craven Lewis, Sr with Robert Craven Lewis, III. Robbie will cherish these photos and stories of his visits with Papa Lewis Sr. I may be biased, but I think these two men are incredibly good looking!

Robert Craven Lewis, Sr, Robert Craven Lewis, Jr and Robert Craven Lewis, III. Are they lookers or what???

Four generations of Lewis boys. I couldn't have been happier to see them together. It was a very special visit.

Look at these guys - it is like they are models or something!!!
Oh, and I am proud to say that I figured out how to post pictures and then put a message underneath . . . oh ok, know me too well. I had to ask Kevin and within about a minute he figured it out! I had been trying to figure it out for weeks! I hate it when that happens!

This picture has Papa Sr, Papa Jr, Robie, Granny, Nana , Daddy and Mommy

Dad and Cheri's visit

Grandma Cheri and her little Robbie. I know that I took more pictures of Cheri with Robbie, but for some reason this was the only one that I could find! I will keep looking!
Grandpa Frank is watching football with his little buddy and showing Robbie how dedicated he is to the Iowa Hawkeyes - yes that is a tatoo of the hawkeye!
Robbie using his bumbo seat for the first time. As you can see, it is a little too early, but we are so excited to see that he is getting close to sitting up.
Grandpa Frank talking to Robbie. Probably explaining some football rules to him, or explaining the importance of visiting the magic bus party when attending Iowa football games.
Whoo hoo - our team won! Or are they singing the Iowa fight song? Fight, fight, fight for Iowa . . .

Kevin, Robbie and I are headed out on our first road trip as a family. We leave tomorrow at noon to head down to Albany, GA to visit Kevin's grandparents (Robert Craven Senior!), aunts, uncles and cousins. We are so excited to take our first family trip and to visit with the Lewis Clan. I was hoping to upload some pictures before I left, but alas I got too busy again this week! I will have some neat pictures to share when we get back - especially the three Robert Craven's together. I am so honored to have my son named after two such wonderful, kind and generous men. I can only hope that he will not only share the name, but also the characteristics that make these men so precious to us. I also hope that Robbie can pick up on some of his Mommy's family traits too - well only the good ones . . . hopefully not the cussing on the Cosgrove side!

Busy busy bees . . .

I have some really cute pictures to upload, but I just can't seem to find the five minutes it takes to do it! Two weeks ago I had a dr. appt or some type of appt every day so the week was filled with lots of errands. Last week my dad and step mom were visiting and we just enjoyed every minute that we had with them. This week is my first week back at work and I am exhausted! Hopefully I will get a chance to upload the pictures this weekend or early next week.

Also, Kevin and I finally took the plunge to drop our cable down to the basic package. We have been wanting to do this for quite a while. We feel like we spend all of our extra time vegged out on the couch watching tv and we want to enjoy our family time and teach Robbie to be more active. The only problem is that we are losing our internet access at home as well - the stupid cable company increases their internet only package up the wazoo so we decided to drop it as well! I hope that this works out because I really want to instill good habits with our children - to spend family time together, to play outside, to exercise, to read, etc. I just hope that I don't miss my reruns too much, wink wink!

Second photo shoot

The lady I work with came back over a week or two ago to take more pictures and I have not uploaded them yet. I love the close ups of him sleeping! Also, we had his one month check up and he is still 22 inches but now weighs 9 lbs 5 oz! I think he is going to be a chunker!!!

Our Robbie

My Poor Blogging Skills

Aunt Megan and Robbie.
Uncle Kyle and Robbie - Robbie looks like he is trying to say "who is this and why are you letting him hold me???" Also, what is so funny is that while Kyle was holding Robbie, he had another loud bowel movement - just like in the hospital. It seems that Robbie associates BM's with his uncle Kyle . . . too funny!
I love this sweet picture of Kevin and Robbie. Kevin has Robbie in the baby bjorn that my mom gave us - he LOVES it. When nothing else works to comfort him, we put him in this and he is usually fast asleep!
Kevin will KILL ME for posting this picture. But I was teasing him about how he went from being a super cool stud who wore a gun belt to work to a Dad who wears a baby back pack. He jokingly posed this picture as "super Daddy" and I was able to snap it before he could stop!

To my bossy cousins up north . . . I have NO IDEA how to rotate the pictures otherwise I promise I would do it!!! :) We are lucky that I figured out how to upload them! I promise once I get back on my feet I will work on improving my blogging skills! Love you both!!! Oh and Maureen, I am so happy for your engagement. The ring is so gorgeous!
