So baby boy has been grunting his way to a half way arm tucked roll over the last few days without any successfully completed rolls.
Today I laid Baby Boy in his crib so I could get Little Man down for his nap and as I walked away I glanced back just in time to catch a glimpse of Baby Boy’s first successful roll over. Although his arm was squashed underneath him and he ended up tipping himself back onto his back before I could reach him to assist, it was for sure a completed roll 🙂
I left the room to get Little Man down for his nap and returned to find Baby Boy playing happily on his belly. I got my camera, positioned it in his crib, laid him on his back and stepped away to see if I could capture roll # 3 on video.
I succeeded 🙂
I tried to step out of the way of the camera so as to not catch my comfy-clothed self on video and this I did not succeed at. Although when I am 60, looking back on my kids as babies I am sure I will be thankful I caught this little moment of every day mundane for me 🙂
Is there anything that can paste a smile on your face more than a baby laughing?
I think not.
A couple weeks ago we pulled out last years Resurrection Eggs. This years Easter celebration has brought some very profound conversation with our Little Man. One day when we was going through the eggs he opened the last egg and gasped (like he does every time 😉 ), “It’s empty!”
“It is empty isn’t it? Why is it empty?” I asked.
“Because Jesus rose from the dead!” he stated excitedly.
“That’s right! Hey Buddy, why did he rise from the dead?”
[silence] “…I dunno.”
“Well, if Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross and he took our punishment when He died, what did he do when he rose?”
With a frown full of anticipatory questioning he waited for the answer.
“If Jesus never rose from the dead, we wouldn’t ever have the chance to be fully alive in Him. Jesus rose from His tomb so that we would have the opportunity to have new life, eternal life, FOREVER life in Him!”
Have you ever thought about the significance of the empty tomb? I hope you’ll join our family today in pondering the weighty truth that the resurrection of Jesus holds.
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
-Jesus Christ, John 11:25, 26
Happy Easter from the Robinsons to you!
Here are a few new videos for your viewing pleasure.
Let me give a disclaimer that I am aware that most people do not care to watch our four month old baby jibber-jabber or kick his legs all crazy like on the changing table, other than grandma and grandpa 🙂 So g’ma’s and g’pa’s, this ones for you!
We are in a season of life where every day is full and every week feels so busy however we can never put our finger on what exact we have accomplished other than keeping the kids alive and the house intact….which is no small feat mind you!
Here’s a bit of what we’ve been up to this last month:
(A picture of Little Man and Hubby…in a tea cup…on a carousal…on our family date night. I love my husband:) He is an amazing Daddy.)
Hubby has been working on a car that was given to him in hopes that he can get it running and use it to go back and forth to work instead of his large gas guzzling truck.
I am dreaming about painting the kitchen in order to rid our home of the Big Bird Yellow. I think this will be a summer project. I have been enjoying doing a bit of ‘schooling’ with Little Man a few days a week. He enjoys doing this as well and it helps for him to have structure to his day and options for him to choose when he would prefer to follow me around the house while I need to do ‘Mommy Work’ 😉 I am working on helping to plan our 2nd annual neighborhood block party and I am beginning to venture back into photography now that our life is settling in as a family of four.
Little Man is getting so big and soooo funny. Our conversations are so very grown up and consist mostly of him asking us deep questions such as, “Mom, why doesn’t Jesus talk back to us?”, and making astute observations using vocabulary out of his age range, i.e. “That was so ridiculous that our friend a had a dog AND a cat in his house! [Mommy: Oh yeah Buddy? Why’s that?] It’s just interesting!”
Baby Boy is, how do you say…adorable. We are all thoroughly enjoying him. Little Man is the king of getting him to laugh and he is better at it than either Hubby or I. I have yet to capture that on video. He is trying to roll over, is full of smiles for anyone who will take one and seems to have a pretty content disposition. He has adopted the hobby of chewing on anything that comes remotely close to his mouth and I think he may in deed be teething.
(The above picture is a common scene in our home these days!)
Love our boys 🙂
Hope you are doing well!
