Still waiting for a good school picture ...

This is Carson's class on Pumpkin Patch day. Possibly a new low -- haha.

Oh and since it's been sooooo long since I've posted, you may not know which one he is (sorry). He's the second from the left.

Late Night

Here's how Daniel found Carson the other morning when he went to wake him up.

Looks like someone was up all night playing with his toys :)

Carson can count to "yea"

Carson loves to count -- he's really into spotting numbers and identifying them. It's not that we're amazing parents and sit him down with flash cards or anything. It's just something that he's picked up on and likes to practice doing ... also, counting provides an instant distraction from times of moodiness. The really cute part is when he counts in spanish - yes, he's a bilingual genius (that's what I've been hinting around at). So today in the car, he counted to 10 (or should I say diez) a couple of times (with help) and it sounds something like this:
Daddy: uno
Carson: dos
Daddy: tres
Daddy: cuatro?
Carson: cato cinco
Daddy: seis
Carson: setay ocho nuve diez YEA!

He ended each time that way and we're wondering if he thinks "yea" is a number.

The Beach

We spent the 4th of July w/ my family in Corpus Christi -- so fun!!!! It was Carson's first trip to the beach and he had a blast. I'm pretty it's mostly beach vacays for the Roberts from here on out.

Family Portraits

My college roommate, Holly, (honestly THE BEST professional photographer I know) did a session for us this Spring. Click here to be taken to the proofs. If you press "play" you can quickly breeze through them!!!

Oh and I feel like I should add: taking portraits of an 18mo. old is nearly impossible. There was nothing cooperative about Carson's demeanor during the shoot. So, that Holly could even catch him in the frame, shows her skill. This also explains why almost all of our "family" shots have C on Dan's shoulders.

Bye Bye Paci - Day Two

So, um, mission aborted!

Holy Cow - Carson loves his paci. He wasn't just mad, he was freaking out. We've never seen him express that kind of behavior before. Just to clarify -- he only gets his paci in his crib, so all this happens during bed/naptime. But we now realize we need to find a way for him to get some closure -- and our next attempt won't happen during an already busy weekend (I painted the living room and we were stressed out enough w/o a screaming baby).
