Girl Time

I have to admit that I love doing girlie things with Riley. We like to paint our toes and fingers together, we like to put on our makeup together (mine is for real, hers not so much, mostly a big powder brush and an old powder case), we like to have tub time...her in the tub me in the shower. I will spare you, there aren't any pictures of me in the shower :0)

It is true that I have been training her to be a girlie girl since before she could talk, she had a binkie purse as a baby that she wore. But I have also been training her to be a tom-girl for her later years because I want a girl that plays sports and I don't consider Cheerleading a sport...gasp...I REALLY did just say that!

Here are some random pictures of Riley also. She loves hanging out in James' Mustang she'll just sit in the garage in the car with her dolls and play for an hour. We literally have to drag her out of the car. She likes to play hide-go-seek. Can you find her in the one picture :0) Her most recent thing is her saying "Come play with me!" It is so cute and sad when you can't cause you HAVE to do laundry.

There is a picture of all the things that Riley loves to play with in the tub and I HIGHLY recommend all of those products if your child doesn't want to get in the tub. Now, Riley loves the tub and I think the paint and crayons helped in teaching her colors (she's known those for a while, but when we were teaching her colors).

And an update about Baby #2, we find out what we're having in 16 days but who's counting? We want to find out before Christmas so that we can tell James family in person. Yes, I am going to copy the Duggars and do a cake to tell what the sex is. It will be pink or blue inside. Because that's how we are going to tell everyone I will post the picture on the blog after we cut the cake :0) Should be a lot of fun.


  1. Love this update! Please post pictures of the cake on the blog. I was just on Pinterest today and saw the idea for the cake. I am so excited for your family. Keep posting. It is so fun to see your family grow.

  2. fun bath time! i can't wait to find out what you are having- it seems like the pregnancy is flying by (maybe not to you, though)! are you feeling any better yet? are you going to be in CA for christmas?? miss you guys!

  3. Ha. Cheerleading not a sport. :) Oh don't worry, I agree with you, it just made me chuckle. I had a dream about you the other day. You were driving my newly purchased sports car.

    Cute idea with the cake. Are you hoping for one or the other?

  4. She is adorable! Congratulations on baby #2. I wondered when you were nibbling crackers in RS the other day. :)

  5. AWW! I love seeing how big she is! I am so proud you got her to sit so still to paint her nails! I am so excited to find out that I am right about your new baby! Mark and I have a bet going on! yeah baby! I miss you so much and seeing pictures of your house and Riley just make it worse!By the way... You still have pretty feet.;)

  6. Loved the update! I will for sure be checking back soon to see what color that cake is!!!
