Check-ups and Portraits

Riley had her 1 month check-up yesterday. She weighed 8 lb 14.5 oz and was 22.125 inches. So she has gained almost 1lb since birth and almost 1.5lbs since discharge from the hospital and has grown a little over 2 inches! She did have some fluid in her right ear which her pediatrician wanted to treat with antibiotics to prevent any infection. We also visited my work and made her first Wal-Mart run and she did great!
Today, I went for my postpartum check-up. Everything is fine and I've lost 24lbs! Only 7lbs to my pre-pregnancy weight (although I need a lot of toning)! We then went to have Riley and Sawyer's pictures made. I wanted to have pictures of Riley's *first* face since she'll be having her first surgery next week. The pictures turned out really good considering we had to wait an hour, it was lunch time by then, Riley had been up since 6:30 and Sawyer woke up on the wrong side of the bed!
The last picture is quite possibly my favorite--and it was taken right before Sawyer almost dumped Riley on the floor!

Those are cute -- I think I like the last one the best too -- love the yellow!

Can't believe her surgery is already here! Drew's was right before he turned 2 months old. You all will do great!
