Riley Roo is 10 Months

Where has the time gone? I can't believe Riley is 10 months (and one week, if you want to be technical) old.

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before, but Riley means courageous in Irish. We wanted her to be able to hold her own against her brother, who we all know can be kinda crazy. But what we didn't expect was for her to go beyond her brother in craziness.  She is fearless. She wants to do whatever it is that Escher is doing, even if her little body can't. She thinks she can.

Escher was piling all the couch cushions on the ottoman and sliding down them. The next thing we new, there was Riley, crawling up the ottoman to about 4 feet off the ground in an attempt to slide like her brother.

Behind this sweet adorable face is a little girl determined to get her way. She will holler to no end to get what she wants. Now that she is mobile, she never sits still. She is always moving. She hates to be confined.

She tolerated this seat for awhile, until she decided she wanted to be out an about with Escher. Sometimes food will distract her, but not always. The other day we were racing down the beach ramp with her in the stroller, chasing Matt and Escher, and she was squealing the whole way. She loves to go fast. She has only ever known going fast, because we have always been keeping up with Escher.

She has a cute chunky butt :-)

She is beautiful.

And she will let you know if she is not happy. Riley is an inspiration to me. She makes me want to be stronger, happier, and more confident. She drives me bananas. But boy, we love her.
