Dear Riley

Today you are 8 months and 2 days old. You are so much fun to be around. And you’re growing so fast. Today you’re crawling, kneeling without holding on to anything, and pulling yourself up to STAND in your crib!


The proud look on your face says it all. Imagine your daddy’s surprise when he entered your bedroom and saw that. 

Thank you for being such a good baby and for continuing to make us laugh, smile and be amazed by you every day. I can’t wait to see what else you’ve got in store for us.

This past month has been a little rough. After a very rough night of little sleep for all of us, with you crying inconsolably, a tiny white tooth started poking through your bottom gum line. Suddenly it all made sense, the clingyness, the constant whining and crying. The next night was better and we figured we were over the hump. And then two nights later, a repeat. The next morning, ANOTHER tiny white tooth poking through your bottom gums. So I’m going to chalk that up to bad luck. Two teeth in one week, one crabby baby and two sleepy parents. Here’s hoping that each tooth gets a little easier for all of us.
