Riley updates!



We have a makeshift barricade to keep Riley in one area of the downstairs. So far this basket of toys did the job. BUT, when Riley wants to get to her Grandmother, who is working, on the computer, NO STUPID BASKET is going to get in her way.
Getting in was easy, lifting that leg high enough from inside the basket was a problem so diving out of the basket was the answer. Little smarty.
She has been taking a number of steps the last part of April but on Saturday, at the Kentucky Derby party, she took off. She's been walking ever since. She turned 10 months at the end of April. She's eating real people food, no truck with that baby food stuff. Drink from her sippy cup and Mary said that she learned how to drink with a straw.
She also learned how to bite. Mary wanted to retrieve a piece of chicken that she thought was too big for Riley to swallow. Riley didn't take to well to having a finger stuck into her mouth.
She only has two teeth but the bite surprised Mary.

Caitlin is due at the end of May and from all reports from Boston she's doing well.

Justin and family arrive Friday night for the weekend. Hayden, Hunter and Sawyer are going to be very surprised to see how big their cousin has gotten.

  5. Melissa, thanks, she is a happy child. It's funny but she thinks opening her mouth wide is some sort of greeting to us. I love the queenly wave. :)Bea

  6. Teri, if her oldest cousin Hayden has anything to say about it, she will. For two years, Hayden has spent a week, down here with me, going to horse camp and taking riding lessons. :)Bea

  9. Riley is lucky I'm not closer...I would love to kiss those pink cheeks! Looks like more teeth are on the way. I love her outfits :)
    That's the fun thing about girls...too bad I was so poor when Mia was a baby.
    I would triple LOVE to have a string of prayer flags...but you know I don't sew anything but ribbons on ballet shoes.
    Would you, could you do a commission???

    Even if the answer is no, I still love you :)

  13. Just caught up on the last three entries. Can't believe how much Riley has changed--lot's of personality and so big! I watched the Derby==how about that guy who got to bet 100,000 and won! The prayer flags are neat...looking forward to watching the next challenge. Been too tired to paint....maybe this weekend.

  16. Oh she is just so cute. Jack walked at 10 months too - what a nightmare! He also fell over a lot! The love of a grandchild is so precious, isn't it? They don't see our faults yet!
