Getting Ready for Halloween!

Mommy's Pumpkin Cutie!
Punkin' Cutie Pie, anyone?
Riley's GQ pose in the pumpkin:

She was such a good sport for Momma! At first she was quite confused, and then she decided she liked the taste. When I took her out she threw the biggest fit we have seen yet, she truly wanted back in her pumpkin! We think she wanted to be Cinderella... lil' princess!

Riley has really been developing her personality lately, she has the biggest smile and loves to laugh. Her favorite song is Old McDonald and 'peek a boo' is no longer a mystery. She's still trying really hard to crawl, she's actually been moving herself backwards rather than forwards which is really frustrating for her! Standing seems to be the ultimate thing and she loves to just look at everything.

I made homemade applesauce and homemade carrots for her last week. The applesauce seemed to be made with apples that were more tart that sweet so watching the faces she makes has become quite ammusing, lol. Now we mix it with her rice cereal and she seems to really enjoy it. The carrots, well, that's a different story... Just like her daddy with her dislike for veggies (so far!).

Creeping up on 5 months...

Riles gettin' kisses
Layin' on Charlie
Eating Charlie....

She's gettin so big!
Riley with her cousin Gabi (Riley 5 months, Gabi 1 year)
So this last couple weeks has been pretty big for us, Riley has stopped cosleeping with Mommy and Daddy and now sleeps alone in her crib. She also is able to fall asleep in there without having to be rocked to sleep first (it is a work in progress, but none the less better than it has been!). We had her photos taken by an awesome photographer about a month ago who did a GREAT job however our service was aweful and we ended up getting 3 CDs of the wrong children when they were supposed to be Riley so we ended up just taking them all back. I did scan one of our wallets so I'll post it, everyone seems to love it! Next month we'll have 6 month photos taken of her so we can send them with Christmas cards (that makes Christmas sound SO CLOSE!).

Riley's attempt at crawling is getting better everyday. She's able to pull her legs up under her but doesn't understand the concept of keeping herself supported by her arms so she just kind of face plants - it really is gettin better though!

Hope you all are well and enjoy the photos!
