Thanksgiving Festivities

We had fun this Thanksgiving! We spent Fischer's first Thanksgiving at my parents house with my grandparents, brother & aunt. We cooked TWO turkey's, my mom cooked one in the oven with all the goodies inside and then Blake fried one in our turkey fryer outside. Oh how I just love this holiday. You get to eat way too much food and have a good excuse, well just because its Thanksgiving is a good enough reason for me! Then we went to Amanda's parents house (Sam and Carol Jackson's) for dessert, live music and a fire in the fire-pit. It was fun to get to see the rest of Blake's family for dessert. This was also the first night we put Fischer down for bed somewhere else than home. He did so good! He fell right asleep and was such a trooper when we woke him up to drive home. This is one of many time's we'll be doing that this holiday season!

An Eskimo Joe's Family

What is Eskimo Joe's you ask? Eskimo Joe's is a restaurant in Stillwater, Oklahoma near the campus of Oklahoma State University. But it's not just any restaurant, it's one of the most popular burger joints in OK. With the OSU campus being dry and this restaurant being just off the campus of OSU it is VERY popular. This restaurant was also featured on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for serving the coldest beer. So in Oklahoma when people think of OSU they also think of Eskimo Joe's. With both Blake's mom and dad graduating from OSU and Blake going to OSU for a semester the Robinson family has a TON of Eskimo Joe's pride. As you probably already know since the Eskimo Joe's shirts are worn frequently by the Robinson men. And I have to admit I have this shirt in probably 3 to 4 different colors (it was a requirement to own a few of these shirts to take the Robinson last name haha). And not to mention everyone in the Robinson family also has Eskimo Joe's cups in their cupboards. But I can say that I have eaten at this restaurant. I traveled back to OK with Blake's family one year before we were married and we of course had to eat at this place. It is a great burger joint!

So of course when Blake's parents found out I was pregnant they bought Fischer a few shirts. And they also bought us matching Eskimo Joe's shirts. So we had to take a picture of us as a family all wearing our matching Eskimo Joe's shirts. Blake would like me to mention that the color was not of his choosing! :)

So to make things even more cheesy Blake and I brought our Eskimo Joe's t-shirts on our honeymoon so we could get a picture of us in them in Jamaica. We had intentions of sending his photo into them because in the last page of every catalog they post pictures that people send in of families wearing their shirts in different parts of the world, but we never did. :) As I said we are an Eskimo Joe's family!!

Fischer and Mommy Talking

So Fischer has definitely discovered his voice. It's pretty cute. He talks to himself in his crib, in the car and randomly during the day. He's a hard one to video because every time he sees the camera he stops talking, as you will see in the end of this video! HA So Blake was able to sneak a video of him talking to me.

A Great Day For A Picnic

The weather was so nice today we decided to pack up our lunch and head to the park for a picnic. It was Fischer's first time to the Anthem Park! We sat at a picnic table right near the water and watched all the ducks swim around. We can't wait for when Fischer gets older so we can take him to this park to fish (catch and release), feed the ducks, run around in the open grass, ride the train and play on the playground. We are so thankful we have this park so close to us.

I'm a big boy now!

So sorry that I have been slacking on my blogging. I was having a brain freeze on ideas to write about. But as usual I can ALWAYS write about our little boy! He is getting so big and changing so much. We are having so much fun everyday hanging out together. He now smiles all of the time and he will follow me walk around the room. I'm loving every minute of it. So here's an idea of how our days go. Fischer is getting up around 8am. We hang out and play, then he goes down for a nap from 10am to 11am. He nurses then we usually go for a walk with one of the puppies. The weather has been so nice that I can't stay in the house all day. Then he naps from 12:30 to 2pm. He nurses and then we do some play time on his mat and get some tummy time in, which he's not a big fan of, but we gotta do it anyways. He then naps from 4pm to 5pm and then nurses. He's then up until bed time which he usually in his crib by 7:30pm. A few weeks ago we started putting him down for his naps in his crib upstairs. He didn't even seem to notice. Then this last Sunday we made the official move of him sleeping up there at night. The first night Blake and I didn't get much sleep at all. Our ears were glued to the monitor. It definitely took a bit to get used to listening for the monitor instead of having him right there in our room in his pack and play. Moving up there at night was no big deal for him. He actually has been sleeping soooooo good. He's in his crib by 7:30pm after he nurses and then the past two nights he slept until 5:45am one day and then 6:45am another day. I could hardly believe it, that's over 10 hours. He usually get up around 4:30am for his feeding so we'll see if he's just going through a phase sleeping that long. He's such a big boy! I'm trying to soak in every moment I get with him.

Here's a stinking cute picture of him smiling with one of his favorite toys.
He's a big fan of his play mat, especially his green octopus.
Everyday we read together. Sometimes more than once a day but usually right before bedtime. This is one of his favorite books the Adventure Bible Storybook.
We always take one of the puppies with us on our walk. I think they are loving getting out of the house too! As you can see Bunker was a little tired after this walk.
I couldn't help but to take a picture after our walk one day!
Yeah, I'm a big boy in my crib! (No his PJ's don't always match his bedding ha)
