We have a roller

We officially have a roller. Fischer is now rolling from his stomach to his back. He acts like he wants to roll from his back to stomach but hasn't quite done it yet. But soon enough he'll be rolling all around. He now also is sleeping on his side (I've peeked in on him a few times at night). We have had to stop swaddling him at night because he's turned into such a mover. There's been times when I've gone up at night and he had completely turned around in his crib, so his head is facing the totally opposite direction. Everyone keeps telling me that once they start moving they don't stop to just enjoy these next few months while he's still not moving much. :)

Fischer's First Christmas

We had a great and very crazy Christmas this year with Fischer. It was a wonderful time to spend with family and friends. But foremost it was a great time to sit down and thank God for sending his Son to be born to live here on this Earth.

Here's a quick run down of our Christmas adventure this year!

We started the Christmas season by lighting the Advent candles on the 4th Sunday in Advent in front of our church. What a special time it was to do as a new family and acknowledge Christ as we celebrated His PEACE on that Advent sunday.
This is Gma & Grand-dad (Alison's parents) with Fischer in front of the Christmas tree at church!
This is Grammy & Papa (Blake's parents) with Fischer after the Christmas Eve service at church. Fischer was so good during the service, it was right in the middle of his nap and then time to eat. He really enjoyed all the songs and lights to look at. He's a Robinson for sure with the way he LOVES music.
We of course had to go see Santa who was at the Anthem outlets. We waited in line for 45 mins behind many children crying and scared of Santa. Fischer could have cared less about Santa (which I was happy about because after waiting for 45 mins I wasn't sure how he would act).
We celebrated Christmas with Blake's family on Christmas Eve Eve (since Blake worked Christmas Eve). We started the night with opening gifts for Fischer before he went to bed. He loved every moment of it. Then we ate dinner and opened our gifts after he went to bed.

Fischer with his Aunts & Grammy. He got his own stocking this year :) As you can see he's holding some plastic keys that he got which he loved. Isn't that always how it works, they end up liking the cheapest toy!
His big gift was an exersaucer. It took Uncle Glenn reading directions to Uncle Bus and Papa to put it together.
Once put together he was fascinated with all the fun toys. His feet just barley touched the ground so I'm sure that soon enough he'll be on the move in this thing.
We started Christmas morning with breakfast at Fischer's great grandparents house. It's been a tradition ever since I can remember that we have eaten Christmas breakfast with them. So it was fun to carry on that tradition with Fischer.

We then went back to Alison's parents house to see what goodies Santa brought! :) Fischer got tons of new clothes and our big gift was a off-road stroller that also turns into a trailer that attaches to a bike. We are so excited for him to get a little bit bigger so we can start up our bike rides again. Oh and he also got a helmet to wear when he rides in the trailer.
Yep he got tired very quickly Christmas day. As you can see in this picture as he was crying. He and Blake (who was up all night the night before at work) went to go take a long afternoon nap before dinner.
Uncle Brian got him this very cute hat!!! He looks like such a stud in his new hat!
The other side of the family came over for dinner. So Fischer got to see his other great grandma.
So as you can image it was a VERY long day and Fischer had his moments of being over tired which he showed by crying. But he was such a trooper. And we all had a great first Christmas with him. I had to post this picture of him at the end of the night. This was right before we headed home. Normally he has a grin ear to ear when flying through the air, nope not this day. His face and droopy eye's shows how tired he was. He was alseep before we even backed out of my parents driveway.

Happy Birthday Uncle Bus

Uncle Bus is turning 27 today! Fischer wanted to give a special shout out to wish his Uncle Bus a happy birthday today!
Yep I see it we do share the same big toe, we call it "The Nugget!"
What can I say, I do have the best Uncle Bus EVER! We got to spend a whole weekend celebrating his birthday so stay tuned for more pictures from his birthday weekend!

And Uncle Bus shares his birthday with my Uncle Glenn! Happy Birthday to you too Uncle Glenn!

Back to Work

So last week was my first week back to work with my new work schedule. I will be working 10 hours in the office (1 full day & 1 half day) and then working 10 hours from home. (as you can probably tell since my blogging has been slacking) So far it's gone very good. When my maternity leave was ending the thought of working full time, 40 hours in the office put me into tears. I couldn't image being away from Fischer after pretty much spending all day everyday with him for 12 weeks. So after going to my work we were able to work something out with a job share where I'm only working about 20 hours a week. God has been working in my life through this whole experience. He's been giving me a gentle reminder to give Him my whole heart and fully trust in Him with everything that I do. I now have a job that I can work from home part time and be with Fischer which is something I could have never imaged. And when I'm working from the office, He gives me comfort and strength so I can enjoy my time there. So far when I have had to go into the office Blake has been off work. So he is getting some great Father-Son time and loving every minute of it. I get fun picture updates all day. I think it's so special that the two of them are getting some great quality time together. And we are so blessed that if Blake is working my parents or Blake's parents will be able to watch him. God is truly raining His blessings over us right now!

When I get home from work I just want to kiss and hug Fischer as much as I can! He gives me the best smiles when he sees me for the first time after being gone all day.
So here's a picture of what our coffee table looks like when I'm working from home. When Fischer is up he gets to play with his animal friends on his bouncy chair or sit in my lap and stare at my laptop while I work. I get my work all spread out and settle into my space very nicely! It is working so good!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Tuesday was my mom's birthday! I wanted to give her a birthday shout out! (sorry it's a few days late). To celebrate her birthday my dad, Blake, Fischer and I went out to eat at Logan's Roadhouse. It was very good! :) Then my parents came back to our house for gifts and dessert. But this year she got an extra special birthday gift. It's from my parents next door neighbor that we have been long time friends with. I thought it was so great. They put this gift right in front of my parents front door so when my mom went to get the newspaper in the morning, there is was!

And yes this is a real toilet. The neighbors hauled it over with a hand dolly late the night before. The sign says "Another year down the toilet." It gave all of us a good chuckle!!
