2 months old

This post is a little late...almost a week but oh well. Riley was 2 months old on the 16th. Time has really flown by--I thought Sawyer grew up fast, but it seems like Riley is growing even faster! She is a sweet, happy baby most of the time. She loves to smile and to talk ("ooh" and "aah"). I had to take her to the doctor a week and a half ago because she was so fussy and she had ear infections in both ears, but was better the very next day after starting a stronger course of antibiotic. She weighed 10lbs 5.5oz and I'm anxious to see what she weighs at her official 2 month check-up tomorrow. And praying that the fluid has cleared up in her ears!

She loves her Daddy!

You can't resist these little pink piggies!

So happy! She looks like a little Buddha baby!

Sawyer is still crazy about Riley. He says several times a day "I love her." The other day, we were outside playing and Riley was in her bouncy seat. She has a birthmark (hemangioma) on her arm and Sawyer was looking at it. He asked where/why she had it and I said that God gave it to her when she was born. He looked up at the sky and yelled "Oh, thank you God!" He is being a little more rambunctious--blame it on the 100 degree weather that's keeping us from getting to play outside until it's almost dark!

Sawyer fell asleep like this in his playroom--he was exhausted!

He said he was "working on the power lines." Don't look away for a minute!

And blame my lack of posts on going back to work. This will be my 3rd week back. It is nice to get out and have some "adult" time but I do miss them terribly. It's tough being gone from 5:30am until 8:30-9pm but it's only 3 days out of the week. And thanks to Biggie (my mama) for keeping them!

The pictures are cute because the subjects are just so darn adorable!! She is getting SO big. Love the buddha belly. Your Sawyer reminds me of my oldest. Always climbing and investigating everything. I think my littlest is proving to be much of the same, a major thinker but always giving me heart attacks with his climbing. Hope you have a blessed week.
