11 months old

April 15, 2010 Riley turned 11 months old! Crazy that in one month she will be 1 years old already. She has learned so much in the last couple of months. She now walks everywhere. She loves to be chased around the house. She giggles all the time and makes us laugh. She loves to play with everything including toys or non toys. It's fun to watch her play when she doesn't think anyone is watching her. I try to get stuff on video but the minute I start recording all she wants to do is play with the camera. She loves to play outside and even loves to stand at our screen door and look outside. She says "Hi" now and also dad, daddy or dada. Sometimes she will even say "Hi dada" its so cute! Now I just need her to say mom :) Everyday I say I"I love you Riley" and the other day she said it back to me! That was crazy to hear. She said it for two days straight to me and now I cant get her to say it. Hopefully she will start to say it again soon. I did get it on video but its really hard to hear b/c when she says it its not like how us adults say it. She tries put the words together but they kind of come out a little different. Hard to explain

Riley is now on 2 bottles a day. 1 in the morning and 1 at night. Next week I am going to start giving her just 1 bottle a day. We had a preview of what it would be like without any bottles and she did just fine. I forgot to get more formula so we went one day without any nighttime or morning bottles and she didn't even notice. She no longer eats jar food either. She is eating stage toddler foods which is pretty much what we eat. We buy her the toddler food b/c its already packaged to how much they need to eat and well it's just easier right now. She also gets snacks which have been fruit bars cut up. She drinks out of a bigger sippy cup now too.

She is going down at night around 9ish and sleeping until 7:30-8 everyday. She gets 3 naps a day which are anywhere from 2 hours to 1 hour each.

Easter Time 10 months old

April 4, 2010 Easter is here! We got Riley an Easter basket. No candy or food just toys for her. We got her some bath toys, a tea set that sings and play songs. She also got a plastic chicken that squeaks. She seems to like it all! We then went to my parents house for Easter dinner. Riley got another Easter basket from Nana & Papa Hartig. Her basket has her name on it and is a bunny. They got her some barrettes,wooden cars and a pin wheel. She loved the cars and loves to suck on them. All in all a very nice Easter day!

Zoo Day

March 31st, 2010 We went to the Zoo! Lisa was in town with Kylie( she didn't go to the zoo) and invited me to come along with her and her mom and her sister Natalie and her three kids Taylor, Austin & Henry. So I packed up Riley and Sam and our new two person stroller thanks to Natalie and we went to the zoo for the day. We saw lots of animals and we got to hang out in the sun all day. Cant wait to go back and do it all again!
