December Wrap-Up

We got a lot of snow on the 23rd. We made a snowman (he actually looks like some creep who lurks in the parking lot after the bar). When he started to melt Connor said "Oh no. His little arms fell off!"

We started out Christmas in Houston with my family. It was an exhausting drive but completely worth it.
Who needs to spend any money when the grocery store has race-cars for shopping carts. I think they would have been happy to sit here for hours. (Notice that Connor has made himself quite comfy with his foot up on the dash!)

Daddy gave Connor a hand-made tool box...and Mommy was brave enough to let Connor paint it (on her dining room table). Pretty sure we went through a whole roll of paper towels. For those of you who know me well...this activity was a practice for me in letting go...I would have liked for it to be all one color...not at all the case. The finished product is 4 or 5 different colors with lots of color mixing going on. Not at all what I would have done!

Christmas Eve was lots of hard work for Connor. He had spent the last few days with Gram and Gramp, and they wore each other out. After no nap that day he crashed on the way home after only 5 minutes...with his favorite hat on!

On Christmas morning Connor had no time to stop for breakfast. However, he did finish off the cookie that Santa only partially ate...Santa should eat all of it next year. The conversation about the cookie went like this...
Mommy: "What do you want for breakfast?"
Connor: "I'm not having breakfast. I'm just having this cookie!"

Sweet boys...

For those of you who don't already know...Connor told Santa that he wanted a Cow for Christmas. When Santa asked if the cow was going to live in his bedroom....he looked at him as if he was crazy and said, "It's going to live on the farm with all the other cows."
So...Granny and Pops "gave" Connor a cow to live at their farm. I guess this was one of those gifts that looked better on the shelf.
That is not a happy boy...we do have other pictures of him trying to get down!

I will close things up with a "Connor Classic"
The boys are sharing a room, and this usually goes pretty well...A few nights ago I heard Case wake up in the middle of the night in a good mood and he was cooing oh so sweetly. The sweet sounds were followed by Connor on the monitor
"Mommy. Mom! Mommy, Case is talking to me."
I am sure he was worried that he would be the one to get in trouble since it was still night time!

Did He Really Say That?

Sometimes I just can't believe the things that come out of his mouth. This was as we were driving (at 10:30 at night) on the way to Houston.

Connor: Mommy, look down there (he pushes my face toward the bag o' snacks). There's cookies in there. You need to get them for me.

Cute Pics of Connor

I couldn't choose just a there are a lot...but he is soo cute. Enjoy!

Ready for football in the cold.
That is not a horse.


King of the Home Depot work bench.

Little mommies

That is a "super bandaid." (The only way Daddy could get him to stop crying.)

Bubble Head

Definitely over the weight limit.

Four Months Old

Case is four months old!! He had a rough week for his birthday week (got tubes in his ears on Wednesday), but he seems to be doing well. He is wearing...I mean eating cereal.

He makes so many cute faces!

This is a picture of him and his girlfriend sweet baby Emma. She is 4 weeks younger than him.

The Wal Mart Man

You all know who he is...the voice on the PA announcing important messages to other employees. Apparently Connor knows him personally or has been working at Wal Mart behind our backs!

Wal Mart Man: "An associate from baby to costumer service please"

Connor: "Yes"

WMM: "An associate from housewares to costumer service please"

Connor: "Yes"

WMM: "Thank you for choosing wal mart and have a nice day"

Connor: "Your Welcome"

Very Long Day

Case and I have had a very long day, although, he slept through most of it. That is a good thing, because it would have been much longer if he hadn't. We are at the hospital...again. This time he was admitted. He was dehydrated and wouln't suck from a bottle, so they kept him. It looks like we are going to get to go home tomorrow. These pictures make him look so peaceful, but it is so sad to me.

Trick or Treat

We started Halloween off early and visited the Ranching Heritage Center last night for the "period treat." At all of the different cabins, you were given a candy that was from that time in history. For example...hershey kisses originated in 1904 so you got them at the 1910 cabin. Pretty cool. We also got to see some cool things from the past.

An old oil rig...
An old truck... (even older than D.K.'s)

An old train...

We did our real trick or treating tonight, and no UPS man is complete without his package to deliver...

It is hard to see but Case is wearing an actual UPS shipping label. As you can see...he wasn't really into the whole thing...

Go Tech!!

We know...

we are too old to still be doing this. Someday our children are going to be saying, "no...we will not take a picture of you stunting!"

I don't know if they let everybody in the fire truck...or just the cutest fan ever.

This is the official equipment truck for the Tech football team...I think Connor is trying to stow-away for the next out of town game. He absolutely LOVES football games.

What Can Brown Do For You?

Today was our annual "Tricycle Parade" at Kids' Day Out. It is a super crazy day for the teachers, but the kids love it. They dress up in their costumes and go in a parade around the gym. The babies ride in the bye-bye buggy....isn't that the cutest pumpkin ever!

Your "tricycle" can be anything without a motor that you can ride, push, or pull....

We all know the UPS man drives a brown truck!

I know you are surprised...yes Case has his eyes open, although, they both have droopy was still very early in the morning!

3 months

It is so true what they say about number two...they don't get anything as good as number one. So only 10 days after my sweet number two had his 3 month birthday, I finally have a picture to show off...of course, Case is sleeping. He hasn't changed in the last 10 days, so I will probably try to get a picture of him with his eyes open tomorrow. He weighed 9 lbs 3 oz this week...we are a little behind what he is "supposed" to weigh by now (10 lb) but the doctor seems to think he is not too far behind and is not worried yet.

Pawpaw's Surprise Visit to Lubbock

Main Man Pawpaw


Connor got a "new" sandbox today. It has already been loved on by Ms. Rhonda's boys (who are now 18) and he couldn't he happier to have it. He has a movie with a boat on it and I think he is starring as the captain! Watch out Uncle Larry. You might have some competition in the boat captian business!

Just Right

There is only one way to know if you got the bath water just right for your baby...

Hard workin man... Rain boots...

Daddy made Connor a new big boy bed...yes made it...all by himself in the garage. We are so proud of everything that Daddy can do.

Case is 2 months old today. He weighed in at 6 lbs 6 oz this week. We finally found out that he does have reflux. We are grateful that it is nothing more serious...we know all about reflux from Connor and we can handle it...just means lots of laundry.

In true Robertson fashion...we had to go out and tailgate for the Tech game yesterday. We are out there rain or shine for most games, and even the youngest Robertson goes out to support the Red Raiders.

Connor had a very busy day of driving Uncle Daniel's new golf cart...
...and watching football on the tv's like the big boys.

Tailgating is hard work. Connor and Case both had to catch a catnap in the motor home away from the noise and the heat!

Wednesday, September 2, 2009


Case is huge! He gained a whole 6.5 oz this week, so he is now up to 5 lb 9.5 oz. This is the heaviest he has ever been! We can finally see the light. And, since he is starting to beef up, he may start sleeping longer between feedings at night. Hallelujah.

Bye Bye

We had to say bye to "kitty" this week. I am so glad that D.K was able to capture this picture last weekend during rest time! Connor loved to play with (and torture) her, so it is good to have this for him since he probably won't remember having her. It was a sad day for Mommy, and Connor couldn't understand why he couldn't go with kitty. When we told him to say goodbye because kitty was going to live with Jesus, he said "Me too. I carry her." Someday we will all see her again, and when I think of heaven, I don't see any litter boxes! God must have some way to get cats to use the potty!
