I took Riley this morning for her 9 month check-up. She was 27 1/4 inches long and 16 lbs 12 oz. That makes her 50% in height and 15% in weight. Everything else checked out ok. We went tonight to Needline to help pack the Christmas food baskets. We had 23 from our church there and it went really fast. I think they said we did about 600 boxes and it only took a little over an hour to do them. Glynis put Riley in one of the boxes and she was quite content to watch all the commotion around her. She was helping with the cranberry sauce I think. They will hand out the boxes tomorrow. The estimate they will give out 100 boxes per hour. The needs in the community have really gone up this year. We are very thankful for the blessings we have received this Christmas.

Our church gathered a whole bunch of bags of food, and the youth took them to Needline a few Wed nights ago. It seemed like we took a store full, but I know it's never really enough. You guys did a bunch! And Riley looks happy doing anything! :)
