Because he's curious...

like Curious George! 

Even though Alan LOVES Curious George, I didn't think in a million years he'd actually pose for a picture with him.  He usually doesn't sit still for one minute, let alone with large mascots, as has been illustrated in previous posts.  So while he didn't like waiting in the long line to take a picture, and he didn't like that he couldn't go up to play with him afterwords (he tried to bring George a puzzle to do with him), he loved seeing him.  I wish I had a video as well.  He walked up to him and gave him a hug, then tried to feed him a banana that was sitting next to him- so cute!  I guess he must be growing up. :)

Our Little Relationship Expert

So Alan's new favorite thing is to climb up into his big yellow recliner and read a book or two all by himself.  If he's in the chair and I ask him if he wants me to read to him, he says no, points to me and then the ground, then himself then the chair.  

The other day, I found him on the couch like this:


Yes, he is reading Finding the Love of your Life, and taking it quite seriously as you can see.  I guess he figures it's never too early to start looking. :)  Special thanks to Dr. Barlow and his marriage prep class for providing us with such captivating reading material for our 21 month old.  He would be quite proud, I'm sure. :)

Spring Break Visit

We have had so much fun during the past week as Grandma and Grandpa Robertson got to come for a visit to Massachusetts!  They were here for a week during Spring Break.  Scott had to miss a few days as he was traveling for work. Bummer!  But we had such a fun time anyway, and Scott got to experience some of the fun too.  Here are a few pics from our week together.

Even though it was a little cold, we still took a walk to the playground

Alan was NOT a fan of the presentation at the Minuteman National Park (darkness, cannons, etc). He had much more fun finding sticks along the battle trail and running up and down hills.

Making cookies with Grandma!
Walking around Harvard
Curious George store at Harvard Square.  Wasn't as big of a hit with Alan as we had thought it would be, but it was still fun.

We got some very rich Hot Chocolate from Burdicks in Harvard Square.  Soooo good.

The first sign of spring after a very snowy winter!

Alan loved this little toolbox that Grandma and Grandpa got him.

The second sign of spring!  There wasn't all that much to do in Salem, MA (some kind of weird witch stuff) but we did find a Rita's!  They told us it was the only one in New England.   Doesn't get much better than this!
