Riley and Mimi

Wow! We had a great weekend! On Saturday, we went out to lunch with Aunt Lys, Reid, and Grandma and then to Grandma's house to play for the afternoon. Then, on Sunday we went to our friends' confirmation and luncheon where both boys charmed all the pretty girls. Today, we had a Memorial Day party at Aunt Lys, Reid, and Uncle Marc's house. All three boys played on the swingset for a while and then we had a delicious dinner. Ross and Riley had their very first taste of Grandma's amazing chocolate cake and they are now official chocoholics. Riley had us all cracking up because he thought Mimi, their dog, was hilarious. He laughed harder than he ever had in whole life every time she barked. So cute! I hope you all had a good weekend, too! I posted three new pictures, so take a look!

Sunglass pics

Hi! I hope you all had a great weekend. The boys and I had a wonderful time! Yesterday, we went to our friend, Cade's, first birthday party. Ross was a total flirt and charmed everyone, while Riley just wanted to cuddle with Mommy until the end, when he started giggling with everyone. Today, we went to Target, out to lunch, and grocery shopping. When we got home, we played and Riley impressed me by sitting up all by himself for 18 minutes! Ross has been sitting on his own for a little while, and I guess Riley decided that he was ready, too. Both kiddos have two teeth on the bottom now, and Ross has one coming in on top. I keep trying to catch them in pictures, but we are talking about some tiny teeth and they just don't show up! I did get some new pictures of the boys playing this afternoon and I just posted them. They are playing with sunglasses they got as a party favor yesterday and they look pretty silly. I tried and tried to get a picture of them both wearing them at the same time, but neither one would leave them on for more than a couple of seconds, so I never got one. Thanks for checking in with us! Take care!

Riley's first tooth

Riley got his first tooth!! He has been working on it for a while now and it finally poked through today. I think sibling rivalry has kicked in and he wanted to catch up with Ross! I still can't get any good pics of those tiny teeth, but I'll post them when I do. Have a great weekend!

I hope you are all having a great weekend! They boys and I had some fun this afternoon and I took a few cute pics, so please take a look. Ross' tooth has now become two teeth, which are just barely visible, but they're there! So far, Riley is still toothless. For the past couple of weeks, Ross has been taking away every toy that Riley tries to play with. Even if he has the exact same toy, he will put down what he has and take whatever Riley has. Then, once he has what Riley had, he will put that in his "pile" and take the next thing that Riley picks up. It's not very nice of him at all! Usually, Riley is very laid back and lets Ross take all of the toys, but sometimes he does get angry and take something back. (I cheer him on when he does that!) I got a couple of pictures of Ross taking a toy and then of him with his pile. As you'll see, Riley finally found one "toy" that Ross can't take from him!

Ross' first tooth

Just a very quick post to announce some very exciting news.....Ross just got his first tooth! I don't have any pics yet because it's so tiny you can barely see it, but it has officially poked through his gum and is very sharp! I'll get some pics as soon as I can. Have a great weekend!
