Facts About Robin

  • He’s learned how to wave, and now it’s something he does dozens of times every day.  It just tickles him pink when he waves at people and they wave back.  He points at things too.
  • He’s eating more and more solid food.  I try to feed him three regular meals a day.  Breakfast is always fresh fruit with iron-fortified cereal, but lunch and dinner are generally just small portions of whatever we’re eating.  He’s very enthusiastic about most foods; the only thing I can remember that wasn’t a hit was a tomato salad dressed with fresh rosemary and red onions.  Too strongly flavored I think.  But he loves plain tomatoes!
  • He had another modeling gig, but he was just the back-up model so they didn’t take any pictures.  He got paid anyway though.
  • I’m eighty percent certain that he’s right-handed.
  • He will take steps as long as he’s holding onto something, but he’s yet to balance upright on his own.  He can crawl up stairs but his method of getting back down involves a headfirst sort of dive that—if I ever let him go through with it—would probably result in a nasty tumble.  Nevertheless he really likes the stairs.
  • He especially likes this one game where he throws his ball down a flight of stairs, and then I go get it for him.  We have played many, many iterations of this game.
  • Yesterday he chased a little girl around the park, crawling after her while she scampered away laughing.
  • Somewhere along the way he’s changed from a helpless baby into a spirited little boy, communicative and social, full of curiosity and affection.  I sure do love my little buddy.
