23 weeks old (5 months old)

October 23, 2009 Riley turned 23 weeks old. She has been sitting up more and more everyday. We cant let her sit up un supervised or she falls over very easily. Soon enough she will be doing it all by herself. Riley has been eating her cereal about 3 times a day now with her 4 bottles too. She is getting better at getting the cereal in her mouth! Soon we are going to be giving her jar food.

On Friday the 23rd Riley's very first tooth came in! It is on the bottom middle. She really didn't fuss all that much. Now we are waiting for the tooth next to it to pop through. You can feel it coming. On Saturday the 24th Riley got to go and hang out with Nana & Papa Hartig high school friends. They have a camp fire, food and a hayride every year. It was the first time we have been. We didn't stay too long at it. Maybe next year we can get some pictures of Riley around the fire and on the hayride. On Sunday the 25th Adam and I took Riley to her first pumpkin patch. Got some pictures of her there. On the 27th I took her over to Uncle Bryan's and Aunt Leigh's house and she had a fun time playing with all of there pumpkins! We even put her in one :) She loved to eat the stem of the pumpkins.

22 Weeks Old (5 months old)

October 16, 2009 Riley turned 22 weeks old. She is really enjoying sitting up and playing now. I put her on the couch in the corner and give her some toys to play with. She just loves it. She also is playing sitting up on her floor mat too. We took some pictures of her in the OSU cheer leading outfit that uncle Tim gave her. It finally fits! She looks just so cute in it. Riley got to hang out with the girls one night because Sara was in the town. Riley got to see Carson again and we put Carson in his little Halloween outfit and got some pictures of them two together. Riley is wearing a Halloween outfit from Canady that says "I love my mummy" and has on a little hat that has a cat on it.

2nd & 3rd Cousins

October 21, 2009 Riley got to meet her 2nd and 3rd cousins from Adam's side of the family. Riley was very fond of all of them. Unfortunately I only got pictures of Ryan, Holly, Hope and Ellie. Nathan somehow wasn't in any of the pictures and poor Tyler was under the weather and sleeping. The Tewell family was just passing through Columbus on the way to the new house they bought in Virginia. Hopefully we get to see them again soon!

More 21 week pic's (5 months old)

Riley had a very busy week. She got some new shoes for winter time.She doesn't mind them at all. They are a little big right now but she will grow into them. She only kicks off one of the shoes! Riley also got to meet her great uncle Gary, Adam's fathers brother. More pictures of Gary to come. I just wanted to snap one so I could put it on the blog. There are also some more pic's of Riley just playing and having a great time. I wish I could be a baby again!

21 weeks old (5 months old)

October 9, 2009 Riley turned 21 weeks old. She has been rolling over more and more. Well, when I say rolling over I mean rolling over from her tummy to her front. She is trying to roll over from her back to her tummy now. She gets caught and just lays on her sides! So far the sleeping issue is getting worked out. She sleeps in her bed for naps and at night time. This week we are trying to get her to sleep by herself in her bed and so far it is working. I have only had to get up in the middle of the night a couple of times. She is really showing her personality more and more. Se laughs and giggles a lot now.

5 months old

October 2, 2009 Riley turned 5 months old. As always I took pictures of her that day. I also got some of her in the swing. She doesn't sleep in the swing anymore so I am trying to get her to play with her toys in it. So far no luck. I got some pictures of her with Adam. We like to pretend to eat her feet and she thinks its funny! She has started a new thing by eating/sucking on Adam's noise. I got some pictures of her in a t-shirt that we bought right when we found out I was pregnant. We thought I was having a boy so that is why Riley has a t-shirt that says "little monster" on it. I think it works for both girls and boys. I wanted to get some pictures of her in it with the boo sign. We are getting ready for Halloween!

Riley is taking all her naps in her bed now. She has started waking up in the middle of night and I started a bad habit of bringing her into our bed to sleep the rest of the night. Now she doesn't want to sleep unless she is being held. As of now i am trying to break her of this horrible habit. Hopefully it wont take me long to do.

More 19 week old pictures (4 months old)

I had taken so many pictures of Riley while she was 19 weeks old that I had to post the rest of them. It's just a little of everything. After bath time, playing with her toy on her mat and in her exersaucer.

Play Date

September 30, 2009 Riley had her very first play date! We went over to Elizabeth and Kathryn's house where Noelle and her two children came and Annamarie with her daughter. It was lots of fun. All of us went to high school together and haven't seen each other since. Noelle and Annamarie where in town so we all wanted to get together to see each other and see the kids. Riley was looking at the 3 little girls running and playing through the house. She didn't mind them at all. It was very cute seeing the 3 girls all playing together. They are all very close in age. Riley got to meet Ivan, Noelle's son for the first time. Noelle and I were pregnant at the same time. Ivan and Riley were suppose to be only 8 days apart from each other but Ivan came early and Riley came late. Now they are 26 days apart. They didn't get a lot of time together but they didn't seem to mind each other at all.
