Robbie gets to know Riley Green

We finally got together with our friends, Mike and Heather Green, who also live in Wheaton!  They have a sweet little girl, Riley, who was born in March also but just a few weeks after Robbie.  They had fun Sunday morning in the cry room at church together, and then we had the Greens over for chili later that evening.  Riley and Robbie enjoyed getting to know each other, and were so cute together!  Riley is a pro at sitting up, eats like a lady, came dressed like a doll, and allowed her parents to put her into foreign bouncy seats so that the adults could eat dinner together.  Robbie was, well, in rare form - looking like the guy who got home from work and changed into a pair of sweatpants (not bothering to change out of his white undershirt).  A nice touch was the 'Chicken and Rice Dinner' baby food that tainted the neckline of his onesie.  Thankfully, Riley is not your typical 'cute but shallow' kind of girl, and she might have even flirted a bit with our little chunky monkey!

We had so much fun Sunday night that today Heather and I met for Chai Frappachinos and headed over to Seven Gables park for a long walk and some swing time for the babies.  It was Riley's first time on the swings, and she caught on quickly!  She was so cute, smiling the whole time, even trying to lick the swing (to her mom's dismay).

Robbie figured out how to sit up properly in the swing this time - all by himself - and showed us how much fun he was having by kicking his legs and laughing while swinging.  

Our afternoon wasn't nearly as fun after Robbie's date with Riley.  I took him to the pediatrician since he can't shake this cold, and also because this afternoon he developed a diaper rash that bled (!).  When the pediatrician checked him out, they found an ear infection as well.  My poor little guy is just a mess right now!  But I had no idea - he is still very good natured when he is sick, and never tugged on his ears or fussed when he was laying down.  Also no fever.  Anways, he's on the bubblegum medicine (I don't know how to spell it!) and strong diaper rash cream, and we're hoping for a quick bounce back!
