Yesterday, my mom walked into the kitchen and asked where Robert was. I told her, "He's under the piano." She looked at me quizzically, then went into the living room to find him. Shortly after I heard a laugh, and she said, "I couldn't think why your dad would be under the piano! But I see you were talking about the other Robert."

Robert was also the first of our children born during the day, and on a weekday. Everyone else was at night and on the weekend. So I had fully expected to go into labor at night, on the weekend. And get to watch a Notre Dame football game in peace. Alas, that did not work out. Robert's delivery was also the first time we spent so little time in the hospital before delivery. We checked in at 12:11 p.m. and he was born at 12:54 p.m. I didn't even have time to make it into the tub for a waterbirth. Robert was also our first child born on an even number, and on a single digit day. His birthdate makes a nice addition sentence (10+2=12).
I think he looks the most different of our children, given his rectangular rather than round head shape. But like everyone else, he is a great baby, doing all the stuff that newborns do - eating, pooping, sleeping, stretching and occasionally crying. He is a great addition to the family.
