It's a shame, she's so withdrawn. LOL

15 Month Check Up

We just got back from Dr. Stone's office, where April had her 15 mon. check up. She did pretty well and didn't even cry when they pricked her finger. When she got her vaccines, however... THAT was a different story. She was not very impressed with those.
She is 24 lbs 6oz and 30.5 inches tall. (She got weighed on the "big girl scale" lol. ) She is doing very well and is keeping in the 74% of her age range.

Some videos..

We knew that April would likely have a wide range of musical taste being our daughter... but she, for what ever reason, has taken a pretty big shine to SlipKnot. That being said.. she also loves Sevendust, Paul Simon, Weird Al, Brad Paisley, IKE, Stevie Wonder and Clay Cook. :)

Baby on the Move... Those little legs are fast! At least I had Ti to help. :)

It's a good thing Max loves April as much as he does... He puts up with a lot!!!

As most of you know Jon and I are expecting a new member of the family in May. So, as you can imagine I have been a little under the weather. :)

I am going to try to get some new pictures and video up soon.

Super Star Nieces!

We made a very last minute trip to Snellville, Ga this weekend. While we were there we got to go to one of our niece's soccer game. Maddy played a great game and her sister Missy cheered her hardest for her.

War Eagle!!!

I'm not sure what I was thinking... Oh yeah... I love my husband and he loves Auburn!! Here are some pics of his littel cheerleader at the start of the game tongiht against Miss St.

Can you say...

That's My GIRL!!!!!!

Nap Time with her Fuzzy! I'm not completely sure how she fell asleep with a book on her back...
While I was uploading the picture above to the computer, April disappeared for a few minutes and came out holding something as big as she was. We had just started The Little Mermaid... Lots of fun songs! This was in the closet. I couldn't be more proud of this wonderful little girl!

Trying To Keep UP!!!

I know it has been a while since I posted. I apologize. Ever since this sweet little girl started walking.... Well. You'll get the idea.

Amy @ Reflections

After being disappointed with almost every hair cut that I have gotten for a couple of years... I met someone here in the Savannah/Pooler area that is AWESOME!!! She is not only a very talented stylist, but she's also very sweet. Remember the days of going to the hair salon and chatting, relaxing, and getting pretty? I actually had one of those days and it was wonderful! Everyone at Reflections (the salon that Amy works at) was super nice. Even though they were all busy, they didn't make anyone feel rushed. That in it's self deserves a metal in this day and age. If I am willing to put a personal recommendation on our family blog... then I hope you understand that it is sincere.

Time to Catch Up

Lots of things have been going on that I have neglected to post. I will try to catch up a little over the next few days.

April is a great helper! Oh and you can hear her say her new favorite word. :)

This was all because I wouldn't let her turn off the computer. She's not always all smiles and giggles.


OK, so Salina told me the other day that April turned on my cd player and ejected a couple of cd's. She failed to tell me though which two cd's she got. This is how I know she is my baby girl. April pulled out RUSH's "Counterparts" cd and also "Roll the Bones." We said she would have GREAT musical taste.

Busy girl

Our little girl has been quite the busy girl.

  • hiding in Ti's crate
  • lounging in her walker (I had to lower it to the ground because she was trying to climb onto it. )
  • walking EVERYWHERE! I will try to have some video soon.
  • getting new teeth (6 so far - 4 on the bottom 2 up top.)

Shark Week!!! YAY!!!!!!

This is a very important message for anyone who has a "shark geek" that is close to them. For the next week they may seem distant and even irritated if you attempt to call or text them from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM EST. This is largely due to the fact that Discovery Channel is featuring it's annual "Shark Week". Please try to be patient and understanding with your loved ones. They will normally slip out of the trance a few days after Shark Week is over. (Many of them will still stare blankly at the TV for a few days waiting for this knowledge implantation to continue.) While this can be the most frustrating time for those surrounding a geek it is still very important for you to offer as much support as you can.

If they attempt to share their new knowledge it is well advised to smile, nod, and give a occasional "Really" or "You don't say". DO NOT try to distract them. They may recognize your well meaning ploy and become agitated.

All kidding aside. This is a very important week for many ocean lovers and shark enthusiast. There is a plethora of information that I, and many other geeks, have received from watching far to many hours of Discovery Channel. If you feel so inclined, please take a moment to educate your self and your family about what you can do to help save these incredible and magnificent creatures.

Thank you for your time and understanding.

Salina Robbins
Shark Geek Extraordinare

PS - PLEASE do not call during the above times unless it is an absolute emergency. Just kidding. I have voicemail. :)

Birthday Girl

It happened! April turned one year old this past Thursday. She had a birthday party at her GranNana and GranPapa's house in Waycross, Ga on Saturday. As you can see.... She LOVED her cake and homemade peach icecream!!!
All Smiles!!!
Sharing Cake with her Daddy!

April LOVED the homemade peach ice cream! She kept saying "Ummmmm!" Yes... I know.. I'm silly for doing the Jaws and shark things... But it is Shark Week!

Jon got to enjoy a RUSH show in Atlanta last night.
Also Rush was on The Colbert Report 7/16!! It was great! We both had a blast watching it! If you have a few mintues, check it out.

Pucker Up Baby!

After keeping people from doing this to our child I finally gave in. This is is April's first taste of a lemon. We were at our favorite Mexican restaurant, Cancun Cafe.

April learning to walk

We went to Hull Park today with Ms Bailey and her crew! April had a blast... well we both did.

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

Busy past few days..

Earlier today April took her first steps with out assistance! I was so excited I called Jon at work. LOL She took 8 steps and then fell on her bum. But, MAN was she proud of herself!

Last Sunday we went to Waycross for a visit. April got to go on her first four-wheeler ride with her Aunt Tammy.

I have a video, but it wouldn't upload. In the picture withe April is her Aunt Tammy and her cousins Chance and Faith.She also got to meet several family members for the first time. We had fun seeing everyone.

Sorry I didn't get more pictures, I was busy visiting.

Our "Dancing Queen"

This was taken this morning. I hope you can see it.. The sun wasn't all the way up. LOL

April is hitting her new Zebra (that we got from a very nice lady on so it makes music. Then dancing and laughing. If you watch close you can also see her do her newest trick... Letting go of things and standing on her own.

Trip to ATL

We went to Atlanta this week for a wedding of a very good friend. We are very excited for him and his new bride!!! We have plenty to share. I will try to get it all on here. LOL

Yes! That is my wonderful husband, JON ROBBINS, pretty in pink! Jon was a groomsman and looked very hansom in his tux. Pink or No Pink!

First Dance? There may not be any music playing, but that has never stopped April for dancing to the soundtrack in her head before. :)

April hung out with GrandMa for a little while and this is how I found her. LOL Not that GrandMa was complaining.

This is just for fun!!! Chad loves his Maw Maw and I can see why!!!

Couple of cute moments.

Daddy, Can I have a pony?

(Our friend Amanda got April this Webkins pony. She loves this thing! It may only be a matter of time before we have to explain that she can't have a pony in an apartment. )

April loves her puppies and kitties so much, she even tries to share her toys with them. The ball of fluff is Max.

Adventure in Soft Play

We went to the Soft Play with Ms Bailey and her crew today and April had a blast! Today she decided that she was a big girl and wanted to go on adventure. This was her second attempt. (As long as I can see her and she is safe.. I let her explore.)

After that we went to story time only to find out that it had been canceled. Ms Casandra was nice enough to do a short story time for us though. It was all about BUGS!

Saturday, June 7, 2008

I should explain now...

I should get this out in the open now and explain..
Bot of April's doctors recommended getting her ears pierced while she is a baby. I question the doctors and asked many other moms why they had it done. They all said the same thing. They will heal faster and since mom is the one taking care of them, you know that they are being cared for properly. Jon and I discussed it and decide to get them pierced.
Now having said that... Jon was is so right! I think it may have been harder on me than it was on her. I nearly had a panic attack while I was sittitng in the chair with her. LOL and she may have cried a minute, if that! Honestly, I still question getting it done before she was old enough to ask to have it done. (It seemed to be a right of passage in our family.) But most of the time, I'm glad we got it done.
So yes, if you blow up the pictures with her sippy cup, you will indeed see an earring in her perfect little ears.

Have "Sippy" Will Travel

Our little princess is drinking from a sippy cup! It may not seem like much to some of you.. but to me it means a lot! YAY!!!!!

At the Pool

Since our sweet little girl didn't sleep much last night, I thought it would be a good idea to get her out of the house and into the pool this morning. I got fussed at for not getting pictures the last time we went to the pool so here are pictures and video.

Edit- If you blow up a couple of these pictures you can see her first two teeth on the bottom. We should have two more any day now. All I have to say is God Bless the makers of Motrin and Hyland's Teething Tablets

These pictures were taken yesterday. I just thought they were cute.

Sunday, June 1, 2008

OK, well I finally got around to doing some of the video. I wanted to delete the bad ones and at least get some good shots in. So, this is at least my drive at # 7. I went a little left, but still stayed out of the trees.

Next one is from #2 an ya know I actually do not have bad form on it

Jon @ Augusta National

Jon asked me to post a few pictures. He hasn't had time just yet, but I'm sure he will share some of his favorite videos and pictures soon.

Jon had a very good time! He was walking on air when he got home.
This is Jon's group that he played with.

Sunday, May 25, 2008


Well, Today is Daddy's Big Day! Yes, boys and girls.. Jon Robbins is currently playing golf at Augusta National Golf Club!!! I'm sure that there will be several pictures and videos posted after he gets home tonight. He took all the cameras!!
I did find some pictures from a couple of days ago that I could share though.

Massey Looking oh so UNIMPRESSED with April chasing her around the room. As you can see in the back ground Max could care less! I really think that he was meant to be a part of our family, much to Massey dismay at times. We told her over and over to leave Jackson alone. He was old and sick and she still insisted on pouncing on him... So as far as we are concerned ... Turn about is fair play. She gets it form a Baby and a Kitten!! I often humor myself by thinking of Jackson snickering at her when she is getting hacked off at Max or April. LOL Or one of he dogs for that matter.

April has a few "big girl" toys! I found a great buy on! This cute little tent and she loves it!! So do the cats, but that's a story for another day. She looks a little... ummm... silly in this picture. LOL I am not a professional photographer PEOPLE!

Just so you know... you can leave messages and read ones left by other friends and family. You can also left click on the pictures and it will bring up a much bigger version. Just a thought... I had talked to several people who didn't know and were squinting to try to make out pictures. LOL

BIG hugs from The Robbins Zoo!!!

Long Week

We have had a pretty busy week...
Jon took a few days off from Nike to caddie at Augusta National and learned late yesterday that he will get to play the course on May 25th. He is VERY excited!

April and I went to Augusta for a couple of days to see Daddy and visit with some of my old friends. We had such a nice tiem visiting with everybody!
The puppies went to Augusta with us! They got to sleep over at National Hill Animal Hospital. The cats stayed here and lounged around with no baby to chase them and no dogs to trample them. :)
MAX has decided that he needs to help me organize!! I bought some small boxes at the Dollar Tree and I guess I'm not filling them fast enough!

9 Month Check Up

We had an appointment with Dr. Stone this morning for April's 9 month check. She is doing great! She's 21.2Lbs and 28.25 inches!
After her appointment we went to soft play with the Martin Crew, story time, and back to soft play with Ms Amanda and her little girl. April had a very busy morning!!

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mommies that we know and love!
I had a very nice Mother's Day. April (with a good bit of help from Jon) got me a beautiful bouquet of Sunflowers, a really cute card, dinner, and TONS of smiles and hugs. Ok, she didn't need much help with the smiles and hugs.
I am truly very lucky! I have a husband that I love very much, a beautiful little girl, and we're surrounded by pets that we adore! I don't think I could ask for much more. Well maybe to win the lottery!... but that would just be gravy!

Duck and Cover!

The world as we know it may very well be coming to an end!! MY husband has BOUGHT a COUNTRY MUSIC Cd!!!!!!!!
When I was going out to the car last night I noticed a Brad Paisley Cd on the window seal. It was unwrapped and I knew I didn't buy it...
I looked at Jon. He smiled and knew that he was busted. (Not that he was keeping it from me.) I gave him a kiss and wanted to check for a fever, but stopped short of putting my hand on his forehead.
For those that don't know Jon... he was NOT a country music guy by any stretch of the imagination when I met him. He would give me such a hard time about country music!!! Then I noticed that he knew who a few of the artists were. Not long after that I heard him mumbling the words to a song. One day when we got in his car, it radio was on a country station. (I thought it must be a mistake) NOW he has PURCHASED a CD for HIMSELF, NOT for ME!!

I LOVE IT!!!!! but more importantly I LOVE JON!!!!!!

Look what saw at the park.

We went to the park with our friend Ms Amanda and her little girl. Look what we saw..

April got so tickled! She giggled and squealed with delight.

After our walk around the lake, we had a nice picnic and April did her best to eat some grass. ;)

Monday, April 28, 2008

Good News.. Bad News...

Before the emails start let me just say that I have a very good reason for not posting anything for a while!

April has been a pretty sick little girl! Fever as high as 104.1, sore throat and mad at the world! Today her fever broke and a nasty rash started... yes, for those with children nodding their heads, it was indeed
Roseola! Not to worry... She is feeling much better now, but it was a pretty long weekend for all involved.

Now for some very exciting news... When we were at our friends The Martin's house on Thursday, April took her first steps! I didn't take any videos since i wanted Jon to see before anyone else, and then she got sick. I will try to get some videos as soon as I can.

Saturday, April 26, 2008

Look what I found

While I was out caddying yesterday, my player hit his ball into the pond at #15. While I tried to fish his ball out, I saw another ball. I saw the swoosh on it, and since I am Nike I grabbed it up. Only to turn it around and discover the most Unique Nike ball of them all. You can hopefully tell from the picture who's ball it was!

First Sign!

Tonight April used her first sign! I had started trying to teach just a few words/signs to begin with and tonight she used the sign for milk over and over again while having her bedtime bottle. When I noticed it and started praising her, she gave me me a sweet little smile and did it again.
I found a great website that teaches Baby signs. Far be it form me not to share!
Just click on ASL for babies.

Ok, ok I know. As my friend Stephanie would so eloquently put it, I'm turning into a "Crunchy Granola-ee Mom" ! LOL
1 Made baby food
2 cloth diapers
3 Baby wearing
4 Teaching sign language
What's next... LOL!!!

Monday, April 21, 2008

I know, I know... !

I have gotten the emails and heard the request. I'm sorry that it has been so long since our last posting.

Since we last saw you,

Jon was able to attend the final "Championship" round of The Masters. He also got to caddie on Media Day, the following Monday. He was very excited!

As for April and I...
April is crawling and picking up speed everyday. I have taken down the coffee table to give her some extra room. She is in the process of adding to her two cute, yet very sharp, little teeth. She's getting so big! I tried to put a pair of her Nike pants on today and they looked like capris!

I will try to write another post in the next few days.

This video was taken this afternoon.

Story Time with Ms. Mouse

Thanks to Ms. Bailey, we learned about a wonderful story time this morning.We went to see Ms. Mouse with Ms Bailey, Shiloh and Kaleb. We were a little late, but April thought she was special!

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Look What I Can Do!!

We were in April's room today and she started pulling herself up. I wanted to take video, but it was to dark for it to come out. :(

While I was getting ready to make this post.. this is what she was dong! God help me! Our lives will never be the same!
As you can see, Ti is a wonderful helper!
