party on April 2. ooooo i just love to plan parties! i hope its fun for the kids. Bryan had a meeting with transportation this morning. So we know what to expect when they come and pack us up for the move to Germany.
SUMMER CLOTHES!! i need to shop for Riley summer clothes in a bad way.. HE HAS NOTHING!! aside from a few short sleeve shirts that we got from his shower. I spent so much money on clothes before the kid was born.. a whole years worth :). im gld that i did it that way.. its so much easier. Although half of what i bought didnt get worn.. he grew so fast :(. So i am on a mission this month to stock pile my little man with the cutest little man clothes for summer size 18 MOnth for my little heffer ;).
he is growing to fast for me :(. and becoming quite independant.. it breaks my heart. i remember when i couldnt be out of his site or he would scream for me. Now he could care less, the only thing he relies on me for during the day is to eat and diaper changes.. and the occasional hug :).. he is too wrapped up in the other kids, im glad he has someone to play with.
i want my snuggle bunny back. Oh yeah and i shall not forget to mention that bryan and i ate 4 boxes of girl scout cookies in two days.. we need more! they are soo good. if you are a girl scout and you are reading this.. BRING US MORE CARAMEL DELIGHTS!! :)
Oh and Happy Happy Birthday Sammy!! We love you! And aunt Ninnie (if you are reading) we hope for a fast recovery from surgery.. We love you!!

Aww he loves his bear..
Sunday, February 19, 2006
Today was a great day! we went to Springfield mall with some friends of ours. We went to Build a bear, I have always wanted to make Riley his Very own Bear. And we finally got the chance to. You can choose from 20 plus bears and animals. Riley would have picked them all :). but the one he clung to Most is the one we Got for him.
Riley Was able to pick his own bear, Stuff it with love, Friendship, Trust and comfort. He also picked out a heart for his little Bear. and since he was supposed to make a wish before placing the heart in the bear, i made a wish for him. His new little friend that he brought to life was then Dressed with a little white T-shirt, and some underoos. We were then able to make a Birth Certificate for his bear and Riley named him MMMMMMM. He really did.. so thats his name :). i'll post a picture of riley with his bear later.. he really loves his new Friend :) its a special little bear so i hope he Loves MMM for a very Long time. After the mall we went to Lamberts Cafe. Home of the Throwed Rolls. Riley Didnt do much eating but he did LOVE his baloon that they gave to him.

*Happy 10 Months my sweet little guy*
i found this poem and found it too sweet not to share :)
A Child’s Angel
Once upon a time, there was a child ready to be born. So one day he asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
God replied, "Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child said, "But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile. That's enough for me to be happy. And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I don't know the language that men talk?"
God replied, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
The child questioned, "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"
God replied, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."
The child said, "I've heard that there are bad men on earth. Who will protect me?"God replied, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking her own life."
The child said, "But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."
God replied, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment, there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard.
The child, in a hurry, asked softly, "Oh God! If I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."
God replied, "Your angel's name is of no importance. You will simply call her MOMMY."

We had a Pretty Good weekend. Riley is still not showing any signs of the somach virus that was making its way around, i think we are in the clear! We did a little shopping, but mostly we just relaxed at the house. Yesterday we took Riley to Mcdonalds ( we were hungry too ) and he had his very own Hamburger for the first time. He loved it! he was playing peekaboo with all of the other customers and flirting like crazy! dont you think that 1.89 cents for a plain hamburger with just meat and bread is crazy? last time i checked a hamburger was .59 cents and a cheeseburger was .79 cents. o' well might as well go all out next time and add some cheese.. :)

You are stronger and deeper
You are clearer about your dreams
…and richer because of the laughter,love, and friendships
And the gifts you have gathered

My Mommy and Daddy Have been *Very* Sick. Mommy woke up in the middle of the night and well it was coming from both ends if you know what i mean. Dad woke up a few hours later with the same thing. Dad went to the emergency room to get some medicine.
So who is taking care of me you ask? Mom and Dad are taking shifts, if they stand up too much they start getting woozy and they need to run back to the bathroom. Mom says this is only a 24 hour virus. This evening Mom was feeling a lot better but dad wasnt doing very good. Mom keeps telling me she hopes that i dont get sick. and i hope i dont too.. they looked miserable today! But of course i am in good spirits and being my adventurous little self :)

We were so ready for you to be born Riley. Mommy was so scared of going into labor though..i wanted you here more than anything, i just wanted to skip the pain it took for you to get here :). its ok though mommy had every right to be scared, after all if mommy and daddy decide to have you a brother or sister mommy will be scared then too!
The week that you were born.. Your Me-me made two trips to missouri hoping that you would come while she was here, with no avail, your stubborn just like mommy. Mommy's blood pressure was high the week before you came, so the doctor had mommy pee in this big bucket all day and then drop it back off at the hospital so they could check and make sure you were ok and mommy didnt have Pre-eclampsia. if i did.. they were going to induce me, mommy and daddy were hoping that nothing was wrong, but that they would tell me to come in anyway so we could finally have you :). Mommy's test results came back , and everything was ok! so you didnt get to make your grand entrance at that time. A week later Mommy had her 40 week checkup at the hospital, a nice nurse named Miss Hooper checked mommy to see how much she had dialated, and she stripped my membranes (my water away from the uterus wall) gosh did it hurt! Mommy came home from the appointment with mild cramping, but nothing i couldnt handle. I cleaned the whole house while daddy was at work. and we had some dinner. and i started feeling more uncomfortable. Daddy was on the phone with your me-me when i went in to lay in bed and try to get some rest. The pain kept getting worse, and when Daddy and Mommy started timing the contractions they were coming 10 minutes apart. We called everyone to see if i was in labor, i was so scared. finally when i couldnt take it anymore (an hour later :) ) we went to labor and delivery in the hospital. they checked me and i was only dialted to 3, you cant be admitted into the hospital until you are at least a 4. so mommy and daddy walked the halls of the hospital for one grueling hour and i was checked again. I was still a 3, so they send me home and had me get some tylenol (are you kidding) this did nothing for me, i took a hot shower, played with the dogs (i think i scared them), we went back to the hospital around 1:30 am. and finally even though i wasnt dialated enough they took me in anyway :). Mommy didnt get ANY sleep until 4 in the morning. Mommy was miserable, I kept telling your daddy to please make them (the nurses) give me something for the pain. they kept saying NO. Mommy got a little bit mad ok well i got a lot mad. finally they gave me some dimerol.. i could still feel the contractions but the pain wasnt as bad so i was able to get a few hours of sleep. around 8 a.m the asthesiologist was called in and mommy finally got the epidual. oooo i felt instant relief, i loved life again, i was so comfortable they made me wear a oxygen mask. Mommy's two friends Trish and rebecca were at the hospital too, they stayed until you were born :) around one in the afternoon they told me that i was ready to push meaning that i had dialated to ten. i was ready... mommy pushed and pushed but you wouldnt come out. you were turned the wrong way, so it was harder for you to make your way through. after two hours of pushing mommy had two choices. an emergency c-section, or low pressure assisted vaccum. i chose the second.. and with only a few pushes at 3:16 p.m your little cone head popped out :) oh your cone head.. you looked like a little smurf. Mommy didnt get to hold you right away. you were wisked over to another table so the nurses could make sure you were ok. and you were, you were perfect. the first time i held you i noticed your little or shall i say big lips. but you were the cutest thing i have ever seen. Ten finger ten little toes, and a little button nose. The name we picked was just perfect.. you look just like a Riley. Daddy held you next, i thought he was going to cry. finally we had you and that made all of the pain worth while. Your Me-me and paw-paw finally made it only about an hour after you were born, they had been traveling since 4 in the morning and was sure they would make it before you were born, But you came on time, Your own time.

Yup..the perfect one, to tease the dog with
Here Cricket.. have a banana
oops.. mommy Caught me
This morning i gave Riley some Cheerios and fresh cut Banana to snack on while i was making him some warm rice cereal, i come into the living room and what do i find? Riley feeding cricket his Cheerios. He would take a bite and then throw one down on the floor for cricket. At one point he was tesing her with one but not dropping it but waving it in her face and giggling. Last night We went to the Movie Gallery and rented a few movies, Bryan and i both got a sucker in the Checkout line and opened them once we got out to the car, Bryan Says "let Riley taste it" so i tried to give him a lick and he kept trying to grab it out of my hand, when i started eating it again riley started screaming! He wanted my sucker and he wasnt going to quit until he had it. Guess who got my Cherry Cheesecake sucker? and guess who was a sticky mess when we got home?
