Little Fireball

The last month and a half have really flown by. Riley's walking and even running all over the place, and really developing a personality. And an attitude as well... She's figured out how to stomp and whine to get her way, throwing mini temper tantrums. At the same time she shows more joy and positive emotion as well. Nothing is more rewarding then coming home from a long day's work and having a fiery little 2 foot tall redhead come running at you with her arms up and a big smile on her face saying "dadadadada".

She loves to swing on the back deck, and ride in her car down the driveway (see video below). She loves to flip through books and play with any toy that plays music - which usually results in her dancing.

Pam is now 35 weeks with "Bubba" (no, we still don't have a name yet). Things have been going great, and she is looking more and more pregnant every day. Its a whole new experience for us since she never made it even close to this far with Riley. Starting to enter the homestretch, and getting excited to meet our little boy.

In the past few months, Riley has walked a 5k with Mommy for the Race for the Cure, played at the park with Grandma Peggy, and attended her Aunt Laura's wedding. There are lots of great pictures in the "Fall 2010" album to the right, but here are a few of the highlights:

This has become a common occurrence in our house...they like napping together.

Running around like a crazy girl in her new K-State cheerleader outfit.

Riley and Grandma at the park...love that smile

Having fun crawling on the jungle gym.

She has fallen in love with this car...loves zooming down the driveway (see video below) and going on walks in this instead of the stroller.

And here's a video of her zooming down the driveway in her car. She loves to do this over and over every evening. Guess we'll enjoy the nice weather before it turns cold...
