Song Stylings

Aunt Robin made two mixed CDs for Baby E as a part of her shower gift-- they are on heavy rotation in our car, and are a wonderful mix of oldies, jazz/funk and general uptempo kid-happy melodies.

Current favorites include:
I Love a Rainy Night
Witch Doctor
Chantilly Lace

This kid has musicality-- he remembers lyrics better than we do.

A sample of his enthusiastic accompaniment below.

Ice Cream

This photo's for you, Uncle Mike.

Checking in from Doha, you are always the ultimate fan and the best Godfather Robster could have asked for.

And I'm sure you like ice cream as much as he does.

The vaunted Star Wars shirt.

Shawn has been offering it for 9 months.  Every time offered, Robbie gives an Oscar-worthy "NO THIS SHIRT" meltdown.

We presented it as the robot shirt.

The letters shirt (he really really likes letters still).

No dice.

Finally, today. 

On the 90 degree day.

He chooses the "robot shirt".

The long-sleeved robot shirt.

The only one smiling more than the Robster is Shawn.

No Fear

This one.  She's fearless.

There's no middle ground.

I love it and fear it equally.
