At the end of a long day, Riley helps to tuck Travis in....

And Riley thinks his mommy is awesome because she knows JUST where to find that baby he likes to play with!

And just for fun, THIS position is Riley's favorite to sleep in. No matter where or how he is. I think its part of the reason he hates his carseat so much, because he can't twist and contort into this position with the straps over him (yes...he's strapped into his swing, but it's a different type of strap).

Riley had a checkup at Duke on Tuesday and they did blood work and adjusted some meds based on that. Otherwise, the news was that he is STILL under 12 pounds! Those pj's he's in in the pictures above....still 0-3 month size. He's gotten a little longer though, 24 1/4 inches, so he IS outgrowing a few of his sleepers with his length. I am glad too...I like putting away the clothes with his name written in them, so they wouldn't get lost in the NICU. Then I have fewer and fewer reminders of our time there.

I just love the first three pictures and especially the one of Travis giving baby Riley that great big "bear" hug. So precious. Our sweet little baby Riley might still be under 12 pounds, but he is one sweet bundle of joy! Hugs to you all. Love, Pauline

I swear these two are destined to be best buds. Carter loves to sit on the counter with his feet in the sink and laugh at the cute baby in the mirror. He also sleeps in the EXACT same position in his swing and bouncy seat. We were told it helps lengthen his esophagus, thus relieving the reflux. It's so good to see Riley doing well. I hope the adjusted meds work for him.

Lindsey, The pictures of Travis and Riley at bedtime, are just so precious! You can just see the "Love" on both of their faces, and the hug that Travis gives Riley, doesn't need words. That little guy in the mirror sure is a sweet one, and you captured him perfectly. What a beautiful smile he has!!!! Riley may still be small, but he appears so long in pictures, and his sweetness, more than makes up for his size!!!
God Bless All, Dale

What awesome pics...really capture the brotherly love. In the last one, with Riley sleeping with his head like that...Sami use to sleep the same way. Grandma once commented on it and I showed her how if I fixed her head she would put it right back that way! Too weird! Hope all is well, send some warm weather up this way. We are SO ready! Kiss the boys for us!
