Riley at the Playground

Mom and I took Riley up to the playground at Enfield grade school this past weekend to play. She really enjoyed the slide and I think she went down it a thousand times. We tried the merry-go-round but it wasn't quite the hit the slide was.

Riley & Rosie

Riley had a front row seat in the combine with Daddy. Her little lawn chair was a perfect fit in the cab. Who needs expensive buddy seats?? Apparently they had a fine time singing, counting and doing their ABC's. Riley's horse Rosie is pictured below. She is almost 2 1/2 and likes to eat corn from your hand. We visit her on the golf cart. She has stayed quite fat and sassy so far this fall. In the video, Riley is supposed to be putting away the sodas. She does this almost every time I come home from the grocery. But this time she got distracted by an old phone she found in the cabinet. I don't think she realized some phones have cords! She likes to imitate her dad by pacing around the house and "talking" on the phone. Sometimes she even gives hand gestures and laughs at the jokes she is telling. What a nut!

New Videos

Here are some new videos of Riley. She has started some new things I haven't been able to get on video yet. She is counting. Usually only 1, 2, 3 but sometimes she will fill in missing numbers as we count to 10. She really likes six and eight. She loves to play pretend always saying "sit" and patting to one of her chairs at the table in her room. She washes her hands and puts things in her pretent microwave and pushes the buttons. She has also developed a "No" routine where she responds to things like, "do you want to take a bath?" or "are you ready to get your pj's on?". She says it so convincingly that you almost believe she is right. She likes to drive the golf cart and recently rode in the combine with Tim.

Daddy's Girl

This is a new favorite pic of mine. Riley and Daddy are looking at tractor's in the Fastline magazine. She loves to look through the Fastline and we have been working on identifying the different colors of the tractors and distinguishing a tractor from a combine. Two very important things if you are going to be a farm girl!

We took Riley trick or treating again this year. She was a Bee! She did pretty good and we didn't have any melt downs during the trip. David was a good sport as usual and dressed the part of the Honey Pot. Too much candy was had by all and it was a fun time.
