Riley is 18 months old!!

Riley is such a character. She used to be so friendly to everyone, but she is in a stranger danger phase. That didn't go over so well at the doctor this morning. She pretty much cried the whole appointment, and she didn't even get any shots or anything. It would have been comical if she wasn't so upset about it. But all went well. I can't believe she's that old. *tear*

Weight 25 lbs. 3 oz.
Height 32 in.

She and Maggie are still super close in stats which I find interesting. She is a bit shorter than Maggie, but their weight is exactly the same. Spooky! :o)

I love this pic of Riley and her Oma!

Riley LOVES cake....

and sand!

Destin Trip

In May we went to Destin to see Aaron's family. We had a lot of fun. I'm really glad we went then since it will probably be a mess soon. I'm so sad about that.

Maggie is 3!

It seem like I'm only getting on here these days to give the stats for the kids, but I'm just not super motivated. Plus, I am just kind of tired these days. So here goes....

Maggie turned 3 today. She is my baby. She is full of life. She is full of drama. She loves to learn new things. She is so girly that I just don't even know what happened. She awoke this morning to a new bicycle with princesses all over it. I can't wait to see her ride it. She looks so cute in her little helmet. Her formal birthday party isn't for another week, so she'll be getting presents for a while. I know she'll love that since her words to me the other day were, "I want EVERYTHING for my birthday." Nice! We're trying to work on knowing that we just don't always get everything we want, but I'm not totally sure it's sinking in. I'll keep working on it. She's smarter than she should be, and I love it. Her new word is fabulous, and being the diva she is, she uses it often. :o) We went ahead and had her doctor's appointment today, and it went fine. He said she's just perfect. And I know that she is!

Weight 29 lbs. 4 oz.
Height 37 in.

My sweet girl at almost 3!

Here we are at 2...

We sure have changed a lot from 1!

Riley is 15 months!!

I honestly can't believe my baby is 15 months old. Man, that makes ME feel old too! She is an absolute joy. She is such a people person. She loves everyone(a little bit scary for me). She makes friends wherever she goes. She is my sweetheart. She also has quite a temper. She's been known to throw herself down on the floor and scream....which makes me laugh a lot. She's into EVERYTHING. She still puts everything into her mouth which makes me NUTS. I just can't imagine her any other way.

Here's her stats....

Weight 23 lbs. 50%
Length 31 in. 50-75%(closer to 50) idea but it's closer to 75%

Before I know it, she'll be two. I just can't stand it!

Time Goes By....

I am not a super blogger by any stretch. There have been a few things going on, so I'll try to post some.

The girls and I have joined a moms group beyond just hanging out with my friends. It's been pretty fun. The moms are nice, and we get out of the house A LOT. Riley isn't afraid of anything, and I'll be glad when she and Maggie can pal around more. Maggie still seems to enjoy playing with older kids instead of ones her age. Oh well! What can you do?? I'm just glad she really enjoys making friends wherever we go.

Texas has had a lot of snow this winter. It's crazy. Riley and I didn't enjoy it so much. I don't like all that wet and cold. Riley just still wasn't a good walker, so I knew she would probably just face plant and then scream. Maggie LOVES getting out in the snow though. She would stay out for hours and comes in all frozen! She enjoys throwing snowballs at people. Aaron threw one too hard at her once, and it was soooooo funny. I can't help it that I like to laugh at my children. I'm sure it will give them a tough skin when they're older(hopefully).

Riley is FINALLY a walker. It only took her 14 months, and she's still not walking all the time. However, she is pretty good at it. For me, this just means that she can get into more stuff...which she's pretty good at already. On the plus side, I won't have to carry her everywhere soon, but that also means that it will take us FOREVER to walk anywhere.

They're growing up too fast. Maggie is almost 3, and Riley is almost 15 months. Sadness!

Riley loves to point at people, especially when they're taking her picture.

Look at all that snow!

Riley's 1...and here comes Santa Claus!

Thanksgiving was wonderful. I'll try to post some pics of it at some point, but we've been having some picture difficulties. We had Riley's birthday party with the fam, and it was fun. Riley was kind of tired, but she managed.

Yesterday was her actual birthday. I honestly can't believe she's already one. We went to her well visit today, and it wasn't the most fun I've had in a while. She got four shots! Yikes! She cried forever, so I think it actually did hurt. Here are her stats though. She and Maggie were very similar at their 1 year appointment. I think that's funny considering how far Riley had to catch up!

Weight 21 lbs. 1 oz. 50%
Length 29 1/4 in. 55%
Head 18 1/8 in.

Now on to Santa....

Angela and I went to see the awesome Santa at Northpark. He is amazing. I was hoping that Maggie would be okay, but it really didn't happen that way. She wanted NOTHING to do with him. I did get a picture of him with Riley though. It's cute. Hopefully next year everyone will love Santa. A mom can only hope!
