Happy Birthday Riley

How does a year go by so fast? He went from this...

to this....

And it seems like just a couple months have gone by. It's crazy!

We threw a party for him on Saturday and I think he enjoyed himself. He is our little Smiley Riley so smiles were the theme.

warning: lots of pictures follow

We love our little Smiley Riley and are so glad that he is part of our family. He is so special and we have loved this last year. Happy Birthday Ri-Guy!

Pool Days


One thing that's been funny to watch as a mother is how my kids want to be exactly like their daddy, and how young it starts.
Riley could do this since 8 or 9 months. He really wants to just ends up rolling across the floor.

Mikey has also been practicing basketball since that young age. He'll play basketball for at least an hour a day. No exaggeration. He got this basketball hoop a couple months ago and will not play on it unless it's the full 6 feet high. He's pretty good, too. The video doesnt' show it because he's goofing off at first, but if you watch until the end, he does make a basket and he says some pretty funny things. If you aren't a Lakers fan, sorry : )

(So, the video wouldn't load and I'm too lazy to rewrite what I already wrote. Basically it's Mikey shooting, and everytime he misses, he says he was fouled. Then he makes a basket and says he's as good as Kobe Bryant....big dreams : ) )


These pictures are from TWO seperate occassions when I left the kid alone near an orange. He can peel and eat better than I can. This is just a glimpse of his craziness.....

One Happy Family
