but i've got nothing else interesting to share. I haven't posted in a awhile and oddly don't have any crazy, and usually too long, stories to share. Here are just a few pictures and i'm going to use up one of my bragging moments (us mom's get about 1 million a year, right?)
Braden was 7 weeks and 7 days old (ha, details, details) and he was crying, as usual-i love my boy to death, but man he crys a lot-and anyway, my sister in-law lisa was over for our new thanksgiving morning tradition of "chocolate breakfast" (we made DELICIOUS chocolate waffles and regular pancakes with chocolate chip happy faces and whipped cream, and were planning on hot cocoa but braden was crying and riley wanted in and out of her high chair about 200 times, each time i had to wipe all the chocolate off of her so ya, we didn't do as much as planned because i was going a little crazy, back to the story) braden was crying and we were trying to cook so i stuck him in Lisa's baby's carseat just to set him somewhere. and before you know it Lisa tells me to look and Braden is totally batting at the toy haning from the bar! I was soooo excited, i took pictures, which i didn't post yet...and i took a little video, i am so PROUD! Riley didnt' even try to grab things until she was 3 months haha so i was shocked and ya, here you have it my bragging moment that i was able to turn into one of my infamous "too long stories".
Random Pictures of the past couple weeks:Above:Lately I find my fridge like this, with any of the magnetic letters or pictures stuck inbetween the door of the fridge and freezer. riley likes to put them there for whatever reason...
This week's message to me. D.O.A.= Dead On Arrival. Is this what she thinks of my cooking?
I did a fun mom thing and as i was putting riley to bed i showed her the rain out of her window and decided to let her play in it before her nap :) She loved it, and was soooo thrilled to wear her rain jacket.
I'm not sure she understood the rain was coming from the sky, if i told her to touch it she would stick her hands int he puddles on the ground...
A little lovin. Man does riley love her brother but i think he loves her more. When he's crying and i ahve things to do i often just let him cry on our easy chair. Nothing stops it but me picking him up or His lovely sister laying next to him, talking to him, singing to him and just cuddling, it's really amazing. He will be full out crying and she just lays next to him and he hushes immediatly and stares at her. It's really sweet to watch :)
