Oh how good it felt to recognize Riley being 4 months old and NOT be in the hospital!! Yesterday, Jay worked with a friend and Travis, Riley and I hung out around the house for a while. Travis picked out Riley's outfit and was SO proud of it:
Notice the camo (really tie dyed) shirt and camo sneakers.
This afternoon, Travis and Jay went on a canoe adventure down the creek in our neighborhood and Mr Riley and I went to town to just shop around a bit and get out of the house. He hates to sit in his carseat in stores so I put him in the snugli facing outward. He grins at every person who walks past it seems.
I wanted to share a picture with our readers. Everyone tells me what a miracle baby Riley is. And although we share that sentiment completely, I wanted to show you 2 other miracles as well.
THis is baby Carter which we mention a lot, and baby Mercy (in the middle). All 3 of our babies are about 2 weeks apart in age. All 3 were born full term. And all though our stories are all different, sharing some similarities here and there, all 3 of these babies share a common bond of having to fight for their lives. Both Carter and Mercy were discharged to home on Friday, and we were so glad to get to see them on our visit up to Duke.
