Coming soon...

...some posts! Here is a sneak preview of things to come: Riley's 2nd birthday and latest check-up, Tyler's first dentist appointment and first day of preschool, Riley's attempt to get child services to investigate us, and some belly shots! Since I plan on making a book out of my blog as a family scrap book I'm going to date the posts when they took place, so they won't show up as recent on your blog lists. Just keep checking in!

Riley's shiner.


Yesterday morning Riley was carrying one of the toddler chairs we have when he tripped. I didn't actually see it happen because he was on the other side of the island, but I heard the chair hit the floor followed by crying. I'm guessing when he fell his face landed on one of the legs. When I first examined him it didn't look very bad, I saw a scrape and lots of redness around his eye. It didn't take long for the swelling to start. The above picture is later that night.



This is what he looked like before he went to bed.



It was a little swollen the next morning.






Day 2 the bruise really started to set in. I was getting looks at the store from strangers! Then we went to the library and there was a social worker in the play room supervising a couple with their child. I was hoping Riley wouldn't look directly at her, but he had to be his friendly self and say hi! His eye looked even worse than this a couple of days later when the bruise was at it's darkest and went all the way around his eye. I never got any pictures of that though. Luckily this happened the day after we had family pictures taken!

A visit with friends.


Vanessa was in town watching her siblings while her parents were in Brazil, so we got to play! We got together severl times during the week, but I only remembered my camera the last night we hung out! Every time I see a picture of the boys together I can't believe how grown up they are.















Future couple? I think they have potential!
