Less than cooperative...

Riley has been fever-free all weekend so we hope that she is over whatever virus she had last week. Yesterday she was in a pretty foul mood all day but she slept all night last night so maybe she'll be back to herself today. I tried to get some pictures of her this morning before she'd had her breakfast and she was less than interested in smiling or sitting still.

First Illness

Pictures have been hard to come by this week. We've had vbs every night and Riley has been running a low temperature off and on all week. I took her to the dr. today and her viral count is up. They didn't really do anything for her but said if she is still running a temp over the weekend to bring her in Monday for some other tests to rule out a urinary tract infection. Other than a little more fussiness than usual, she really hasn't had any other symptoms. Hopefully we can take some pictures this weekend to post.

3 Months

Riley is 3 months old today. She hasn't had the best day. She is running a little bit of a temperature and we think she may be starting to cut some teeth.

12 Weeks

Riley was 12 weeks old on Friday. She is getting better at sitting while propped up and she seems to enjoy the added perspective. Tim helped me get these pictures by keeping her entertained. He sings her favorite song; the theme song from Pinky & the Brain (a cartoon).

Sleepy Girl

Tim and Riley usually get a few extra minutes of sleep in the morning after I get up. This picture was taken last week when they were both "sleeping in" in our bed together. Riley often sleeps with her arms up by or above her head. She always looks so relaxed. Tim takes care of getting her ready in the mornings so I can actually make it to work on time now that we are on early summer hours. I must say I'm jealous as I hear them "talking" and rounds of "Old McDonald" coming from the nursery. They have a lot of fun together. I just have to get Tim convinced that those little pink socks are actually anklets and not tube socks. I usually catch them before they get out the door. I'll have to get a picture of that to post soon.

We've been putting Riley in her high chair and letting her get used to what a spoon feels like in preparation for starting some solid foods in the next few months. She seems to like the spoon really well.

Feelin' Yucky

Riley had her 2 month vaccinations today. She had to have three shots in her legs. She actually did very well and only cried for a little bit. I think it was harder on Mom and especially Dad than it was on her. She was a little whiny afterward but not fussy. Here she is in her favorite spot - the middle of our bed - after we got home from work yesterday. She was pretty zoned out from the Tylenol I think.

Riley at Methodist Conference

Riley went with us to conference in Jackson, TN on Monday. We were able to visit with many pastors and their wives that we don't get to see often because they have moved out of our district. She was really good all day and traveled well as usual. Here is a picture of her from last week.
