We took Riley to her first pumpkin farm with Nana, Papa and uncle Bryan. We ended up picking a perfect Sunday to go. It was 75 and sunny. Riley had a blast. She was walking everywhere picking out pumpkins. We tried to get her to sit on a pumpkin and she wanted nothing to do with it. Then we tried to get her to sit inside the pumpkin bin and she was scared.
I just uploaded pictures from my camera and found more 17 month pics! Lisa was in town with Kylie and we got together for a little play date. It was so cute watching them play together. They are 9 months apart but they were loving each other. They both got big smiles on their faces looking at each other. Lisa and I keep telling them that they are going to be best friends :)
Riley every time she gets out of the bath loves to run around the house naked! She ran over to Adam and sat on his lap and I couldn't refuse, I just needed to get a pic of her little behind.
The other day I was in our hall closet and Riley followed me in and found her bumbo chair. She pulled it out and sat in it. I couldn't believe that she still fits in it. Then she grabbed a book and started reading in her chair.

October 15th, 2010 Riley turned 17 months old. At school they gave the kids pumpkin seeds and they left them on the play ground. The next day pumpkins had grown! They got to go out and pick out there very own pumpkins to bring home. Riley couldn't decide which one she wanted. At one point she had picked up 3 different ones :) We had gotten her a potty so she could get use to it. She didn't really care about it then one day when she got out of the bath she wanted to sit on it. Nothing happened on it but she sure enjoyed sitting on it
September 16th, 2010 My poor little lady had only been at the daycare for 3 weeks and in that short time she came down with diarrhea and then got croup!!! Another kid in her class had gotten croup and spread it through her room. Riley caught it on a Tuesday ( which we didnt know) and by Wednesday morning she was coughing with a bark and wheezing. Adam took her to the doctor while I was at work. The doctor conformed that it was croup and gave her a steroid shot and sent them home. The steroid shot worked like a champ and she seemed so much better by Wednesday afternoon. Well on Thursday morning she was starting to sound bad again. It was too late for me to call off work so I took her in with me and told her teachers to let me know asap if she got worse. I went to lunch and got a call from work saying that she seemed bad and I needed to come back and get her. I went and got her and she was 100% worse then what she sounded like that morning. I rushed her over to her doctor where they gave her another steroid shot and told us to go immediately to Children's Hospital. The doctor called the hospital to let them know we were on our way. I ran home and got Adam and we went straight down. We got in right away and they started her on a breathing treatment. The treatment didn't work so they wanted to make sure she hadn't accidentally swallowed something so we got xrays done. The xrays came back with nothing lodged so we got another breathing treatment that didn't work again so we got admitted to the hospital!! This was scary and Riley was having a very hard to time breathing. It didn't help that she was crying and screaming which makes it worse. We went up to our room and stayed over night and she got so much better that the next day we got to go home!!!! We maybe saw 15 or more doctors and nurses while we were there...no joke! They said this was one of worse cases they had seen. Now we know that if she ever gets it again that we need to act immediately with steroids and this special breathing treatment you can only get in the hospital.
September 8th, 2010 Riley got her first ever school pictures taken. I had no idea that this was even going on! We had been out of town and poor Riley had gotten some bug in her system and had diarrhea for 7 days. This was our first day back in over a week and when I walked into school they told me it was picture day! She was wearing a whole other outfit so I had the teachers hurry and change her into her extra outfit. Her class photo is missing some kids because they too came down with the diarrhea bug :(
August 24th, 2010 Was Riley's first day of school! She is in the Older Infant room which has kids from 10 months up to 18 months. She did a great job!!! She walked in and went right to playing. I of course didn't stick around because I didn't want her to cry when I left. My classroom over looks her playground so I was luck enough to see her play with her new friends and of course take some pictures with my phone :) During my lunch I stopped in her classroom to make sure she was doing okay. She was fast asleep so I had to snap a pic of her so I could email it to Adam. They said she was having a great day.
