Chris and Dylan’s Visit

What a wonderful blessing it was having Christopher and Dylan visit us! All of us had an amazing time together, even though we did ABSOLUTELY nothing. We left the house only once- to go to dinner one night – the rest of our time was spent at home playing games, watching movies, and catching up....

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

This has been a week of major ups and downs for me.  I’ll start with the good things, since that’s the most fun.  First, Riley slept for almost six hours in a row for the first time.  At six weeks of age, we’re pretty happy about that.  He’s been approaching five hours in a row...

The Last Few Weeks

Riley’s Second Week

Time is already flying by and we’re watching him change every day.  He learns new things every day – he’s working on grabbing things and finding his mouth.  He took his pacifier out today and put it back in by himself, something I never would have thought would get me so excited, but it did. ...
