Birthday Lunch

We finally made it to Riley Jane's ACTUAL birthday!! So fun! She was so embarrassed this morning when I sang Happy Birthday to her. She just laughed at me. When I asked her what she wanted for breakfast she immediately said "POPCICLE !" Well, it's your birthday, why not? After breakfast I asked her what she wanted to do on her birthday and she said "I want to bounce." So we bounced. Bounce video will be posted in the near future. Mimi and Papa are here for the weekend and Mamama came by for lunch. Riley opened her presents from Mimi and Papa, another from Mamama, and a few more from family and friends. They were all a big hit. She loved all the toys and especially the books! Everytime she opened a book, she said "BOOK!!!" and smiled really big. We made a yummy lunch and Riley Jane went down for a nap after she read all of her new books. She loves her grandparents so much and looked so cute in her birthday dress. What a special day. It's so crazy to think just two years ago today she arrived all tiny and cute. Each birthday is more special because it's so fun to see how much she's grown and changed.

Not actually sleeping. Just pretending.


This was one of my favorite books when I was little. Anyone else recognize it? Grover!

We lost the small board book version of Goodnight Moon so Mimi fixed that problem. She gave RJ the super-duper sized board book for her bday. She was so happy. She had been asking for it everynight for over a week.

Yay! A tin tea set! Nicer than plastic and less breakable than porcelain!

Going bye-bye now that she's got a purse.

There's the face again- another book!

Big smiles for yet another book.
