It's birthday party time!

May 16th, 2010 Was Riley's birthday party! We rented out our clubhouse so there would be more room for everyone to roam. Riley had on her party dress which was a pink tutu outfit that said my first birthday on it from Nana Hartig. She was actually late to her own party because she was sleeping :) We had lots of people come and help us celebrate this big day in her life. Riley did really well at her party. She didn't cry or fuss at all. She seemed to like all the people. Which is a first for her. We had her best friend Sam there too. She walked up to him and gave him a big hug when he arrived it was so cute :)

We all sang happy birthday to her and she got her very own cake that I made for her. She didn't come close to finishing it but at least she ate some of it. Riley got so many gifts and we opened all of them and she was very entertaining to watch when there was a new present opened. It was a very fun day for us and her for. i know she wont remember it but at least I have video, pictures and a blog that one day she can see it all!

Riley is 1 years old!!!

May 15, 2010 Riley is 1!!!! Her birthday was on a Saturday. We went shopping for her b-day gifts, went out to dinner with Nana & Papa Hartig then came home and opened her gifts from Adam and I. Then it was cupcake time! I did cupcakes for her actual birthday since the next day was her b-day party and she was getting her very own b-day cake. We sang to her and we had to blow out her candles for her but she really enjoyed it. She ate the cupcake and was a mess.

Riley now eats the same dinner as us. If we are having chicken and veggies she is also having the same. She seems to love it and that is always a great thing. For her breakfast I make her either waffles, pancakes or eggs every morning. She also gets a fruit too. She was supposed to start on D milk but she refuses to drink it. So we changed her over to soy milk and she refuses to drink that too. I am going to be calling the dr here this week to see what our next step with her is. She eats breakfast, lunch, snack and then dinner. She has been taking 2 naps a day at 1 1/2 hours each. She has been going down between 8-9pm and waking between 7:30-8am.

The 1 year check up went well as well could go. She got 3 shots and of course screamed! Her weight has evened out and is at 50% percentile. Her height has evened out too and she is at 25% percentile. Lets face it we knew this child wasn't going to be tall, just look at Adam and me!!
