Look who's sitting up...

and blowing raspberries (drool will end up all over her face. :) I'll go in to see her and she'll look up at me with a HUGE smile on her face as if to say, "I figured it out Mom."
We cheer and smile back. She really does live up to the name her cousins coined, "Smiley Riley."

And, she is starting to eat a serving of rice cereal each day for lunch. Tongue thrust be gone; she was out all night!

Daniel is learning to jump. Today, he got the multi-colored jump rope that the Easter Bunny gave him and laid it on the floor. He handed me one end and said, "Here Mom, I jump." Then he galloped over it a few times. I showed him how to jump with both feet leaving the floor (something I thought I'd never do again :) and he tried it as well. He actually did it a couple of times.
Way to go Daniel!
He also went outside and played with the dogs in the back yard. Riley and I watched from inside on the couch. Daniel would giggle when he was licked by them and led the charge to run across the yard. It was great to see him lead the pack. He has an adorable run!

We're all doing well. The weather has been beautiful and we're spoiled.


  1. Gosh, they grow so fast. I love watching little kids learn life. It's so amazing.

  2. She is so cute. I can't believe she is already eating food! Where does the time go? That's funny that Daniel is jumping because Cate just jumped for the first time last night. She has been trying forever because she always sees the kids jumping on the bed, but first success last night.

  3. Yeah for Cate! Next time we get together, we'll have to watch out. They'll be all over the place.
    Daniel still talks about A,B&C. He says all of their names.

  4. Get your jumping shoes on, Keryn. We're on our way to Southern CA soon. :)

  5. Oh I love the picture of Riley. She is just beautiful. And Daniel certainly does have a cute run. What sweet kiddos you have. I am also loving this weather. I'm trying to really savor every nice day before the awful heat hits. It's been such a perfect stretch of weather.

  6. Riley looks so grown up...smile. I love her nick-name - Smiley Riley! Way to go Daniel! Timothy loves jumping right now too. You both can jump all over in CA. I love Daniel leading the dogs. Hooray for the slobber! See you soon!!!

  7. ohhhh...Smiley Riley really is perfect!

  8. Soooo cute! I can't believe she is so big already!!
