Hangin' out on my play mat:

Who is that handsome boy in the mirror?


I win!

Hi mom!

This is about as naked as I get these days:

My tummy is almost healed. Isn't my umbilical hernia gross?! It creeps mommy out.

Pick a hand..

Look into my eyes

Has anyone seen my hands? I seem to have lost my hands.

Those pictures are precious! I cannot believe how big Robbie is getting. He is very alert and just has the cutest smile. Gosh, it seems like just yesterday that Addie and Alex were that small.... Time goes by so fast! I hope that this week is a good one for you all and that you finally fine time to get some rest! Be sure and check out my blog for a give away!

He is just too darned cute. It's amazing how much he's grown in four months. All babies change and grow a lot at first - but Robbie's just more beautiful every time I see him.

He is SO adorable!

I. Love. Him.

Jenn said...

He is such a cutie! So glad that he is doing well.

He is so cute!

Fox's belly button looks exactly the same with the hernia. It freaks me out, too, but our Ped says that it's best to just wait and see if it resolved itself. now he's talking about possible groin hernias, though, and apparently those would require surgery. Oy. this boy is determined to be way more difficult than his sisters! :-)

Oh, what a cutie! Love the pictures, Trish. You have quite the little looker. (he gets that from you, right?) :-)

Jason had an umbilical hernia. It was the size of a large grape and would get bigger when he cried. Creeped me out, too. It is all better now. He is an outie, but you wouldn't think anything of it if you saw it.

he's soooooooo cute!!! :) I can tell by his face he's growing bigger and getting older! oh my goodness how quickly he grows! =D

LOVE 'EM! I really just want to hug and squeeze and kiss Robbie. Seriously. :)

My friend's DS had an umb hernia & it was much worse than Robbie's. He's all good now!

OMG... he makes me lust after those baby moments with my daughter. Snuggle him for us all. He will grow and grow so fast now. Is he batting those toys yet?

Amy said...

Aww, what darling pics!!

Ariella said...

He looks like he is healing and growing well. Thank you for telling us what the belly button is. I saw it and was immediately concerned. Keep growing strong Robbie!

BTW: That is the play mat we have for Roo.

Ah, I simply love Robbie pics. :) He looks so perceptive and wise. And handsome. And don't worry about the umbilical hernia - I know a few kids who have had 'em, and they went away. Slowly, but uneventfully. No big deal. Give the boy kisses for me!

I don't have any interest in this company, but I found these recently:

I think it makes the baby look a little goofy, dh thinks it makes the baby look "very cute" (I think this is because he can actually manage a swaddle correctly). But I've been very impressed with them. They are wonderfully for helping my 3 month old calm down and fall asleep when he is overstimulated (or just cranky). He is a very good sleeper in general, but he has a huge need to be swaddled (my 2 year old is still a terrible sleeper but also had the need to be swaddled, is there something wrong with the situation when your 3 month old sleeps to 5-7am but you are up multiple times a week sometimes multiple times in a single night at 2-3 with your 2 year old?)

You are going great with Robbie! Things will get easier. (I know that it sounds crazy now and really is not much comfort, but it will)

De-lurking to say how great it is, after following your blog for months, to see Robbie doing so well. He really is adorable.

As for the hernia, my twin nieces had huge ones, way bigger than Robbie's. The doctors said they would take years to go away. They were both gone before their 1st birthday!
