This blog is not about Jackie Robinson.
I let the time slip away again, between posts. It was very easy.
I’ll dig up some previously unseen, and worth-another-see pics. I’m always posting low-quality, unedited pictures on facebook, and I wanted to change things up. So even though I didn’t take most/any of these, they will be more in my style: too green with the contrast too high. You’re welcome.
The last time I posted was before Easter, so let me start with my San Diego trip. Robin and I flew to Southern California a few days after Easter so that we could meet little David for the first time! I was so excited that Betsy, children, and Nick were going to be there too. Sibling power! (Robert is a given because he lives in S.D.)
My nephew David is so round and sweet! Like a little watermelon. Or a grape.
Sidenote: when we used to play Anne of Green Gables, Emmy was always Anne and I was Diana, because her hair color was closer to red, and mine was closer to black. Obviously neither are either, but you work with what you have.
It was so nice to see my family! We wanted lots of cute cousin pics but the subjects were always wriggly and mostly uncooperative.
While we were gone, Robin’s crib came in the mail from her Chayrez grandparents, and Aurelio put it together so it was ready when we got home. I really love it!
Here are some more angles of her room!
A pic with her Dad:
Despite the fact that I’m an unmotivated underachiever, I started to worry slightly at Robin’s lack of developmental progress. However, she finally started sitting up on her own, and in a few short weeks, has become a pro.
It’s time for some video proof!
I love the goofy ghetto dancing she starts doing in the middle of the video
Unfortunately, she has been slightly rashy for a while, growing ever rashier, and things came to a red and bumpy climax this past week. We cut out all solids (AGAIN) and of course it went away in a few days. Now we hope to responsibly reintroduce foods so we can tell what’s causing the reaction. You know, the way you’re supposed to do it? Today we gave her some cottage cheese and she seemed to do ok. I have really set myself up for stressful failure here by delaying solids, since I’m running out of milk and she’s allergic to everything in the world. She’s going to waste away!
Starting with her legs.
I think that’s all the info and media updates I’ve been wanting to share, in no particular order, really.
