behind on the times?

we might be. but we finally got a lap top. yes we have been living without a computer. don't ask us how we did it. possibly we are just terribly thrifty.
i'm hoping that having a computer will lead me to be craftier.
that's probably just a false hope.
one can dream though, right?

too cute for two months

this cute little lady of ours is two months old now. well....last thursday she turned two months old. but i'm just now getting around to posting this. she got her two month shots and cried her heart out, for about 20 seconds and then as soon as we held her in our arms she calmed down. thank goodness!
at two months now she is exactly 11 pounds and 24 inches long!
here's the best part....she's in the 95th percentile for height! haha.
that cracked tom and i up since i am 5'4" and he is 5'10" on a good day.
hopefully she doesn't get use to it because i have a feeling it's not going to last.

the past week and a half she has started to smile and it is just the best thing ever. sometimes when she is being a little stinker she will flash a smile for half a second and it doesn't matter what she's done, it makes everything worth it. we love our little riley roo so much!

sweet riley's blessing day

on sunday this sweet little girl got blessed and her daddy gave her a beautiful blessing. there were so many people that came to support her, she sure is loved quite a bit!

since i was running around saying hi to everybody i didn't have time to take any pictures. sad day. but fortunately mary ann, kelly and my aunt ann took a few. these are the ones that i have from mary ann. there were more friends that showed up. but i don't have those pictures yet!

 my little lady
 she loves her daddy
isn't she just the cutest? you don't have to agree. i already know. :)

18 months coming

crystal's home!!
one of my best friends got back from her mission in canada last week.
i'm so excited.
we hung out last week and she asked me if i could go to a friend's birthday party with her. tom was going to play basketball.
so i said sure, but i had to take riley. ha.

let's just say people look at you weird when you show up to a birthday party with a bunch of single people and you're married. . . with you're baby.
we laughed.

like momma like daughta

anybody who knows me knows that i LOVE my baths.
so does this little lady. guess she is mine after all.

ps she didn't pee in the bath - that's a yellow foam thing to help her sit up.
don't worry.
we are sanitary.

i looked out the window...

and what did i see?
two little sheepies looking at me!
the joys of living on a sheep farm. just about every day this week we have woken up to sheep loose in our yard. needless to say that me and riley girl have become excellent herders this week. that's a lie. we are terrible. but we try.
