it must be true cause Riley's bib says so!
Life with 2 boys has been quite busy lately.
Travis has had tball...which he is enjoying so much I can't even describe it.
He ALWAYS hops onto the base like this
Riley is still LOVING his solids and doing well with them. We are up to carrots/green beans (not his favorite) and squash. I got all the supplies I needed and we now have little frozen cubes of baby food in the freezer for him, all made from scratch.
Travis made rank in cub scouts and just had his crossing over...he's now a Wolf!
Riley has still not been home for a longer amount of time than he was in the hospital, that catches me by surprise all the time. but he sure does seem to enjoy being here!
Travis had some extra credit work he could do for school, where he had to write about one plant/tree in our yard and one animal that was NOT a pet. Oh and he had to draw a picture. So outside we went after dinner tonight. He chose to write about his apple tree ("This is my apple tree. It does not have any apples yet") and about the bluebird family that built a nest in HIS bluebird box outside his bedroom window ("I see a bluebird on my roof. It was going to its nest. It was giving its babies food"). The picture he drew of the little bird with a worm in it's mouth was priceless!
Riley has been a bit of a stinker since our Duke visit as well. He is eating about 10oz less formula a day than he should be. It seems he prefers the solids. But he has got to eat his formula and all of it. So right now, we are just watching and waiting to see what he will do next. Our sweet neighbors told their church family about Riley's special formula and they gifted us with THREE cans of it today. We are so thankful for them and appreciative!
Tonight...he said Mama for the first time. First word. How special do I feel? Still no teeth.
So Amy, and the guys at GE....I'm sorry if I worried ya by not updating (you can tell I got your email ;o) ). And since I KNOW you all will read this, dad, aka J.R., aka Granddaddy has been living the high life on retirement. Planting gardens, picking Travis up from school when we need and spending afternoons with him, and EVEN babysitting Riley for one and two hour stretches. How about that?!
One last thing...do you know what's different in this picture?
