No monkeying around...

A cute story for you guys...

When Robert was only a few months old, Nana gave him a little stuffed monkey. He clung to that monkey and it became a part of his "every" day.

Then, on his first birthday, Nana surprised Robert with another monkey. Well...I think Robert was so happy about that monkey and that he now had two (one for each hand). Over the last few years the monkey collection has grown.

When Robert had his playschool graduation last June, Papa showed up with another monkey as a graduation gift! Well...every monkey sets a new record high! This monkey actually had a name on the tag. His name was Fumbles...well, Fumbles became his new best friend. Fumbles had to be by Robert's side every time he fell asleep. Fumbles has been the #1 monkey for 6 months until...

This Christmas, Nana and Papa set yet another new record!!! They gave Robert a Webkinz, a Cheeky Monkey! Now Fumbles has a new companion on his bed.
On Christmas night, when bedtime rolled around both monkeys had to be by his side and cradled in his arms.

I snapped this picture about 15 minutes after we had tucked him in...

...is there anything more precious than a sleeping child?

So the monkey tradition continues, I believe we are at 6 monkeys so far! It sort of fits with Robert's personality. He is sometimes cheeky and cannot sit still for more than 60 seconds at any given time!!

Have a happy new year...commit to your resolutions and keep reminding yourselves why you made those resolutions...

It's all about decisions!!

Later,
Camille
