Miscellany Monday

I officially have a walker now!  Anna Riley has been "walking" for a while but just never would turn loose until now.  And boy is she all over the place and in to EVERYTHING!

I really feel like my baby is not really a baby anymore.  There are times I look at her and realize how fast she is growing up and how big she is getting...especially when I see pictures like the one below! 

We are in the process of taking Anna Riley's pacy away.  For several weeks now we have only given it to her during nap or bedtime.  Yesterday, I took it away from her during her naps and she did great...didn't even cry when going to sleep.  We were going to take it away from bedtime too since she did good earlier but Riley put her down and he forgot and gave it to her so we will try again tonight.  It's going much better than I thought it would though!

I have mentioned before that Anna Riley has not done well in the nursery at church since she changed classes.  Well, we finally made some progress today.  She clung to Riley and wouldn't let go but when we came back to get her she was actually playing and so happy!  Usually she is just sitting in Mrs. Jean's lap the whole time because she is upset. 

 Riley and  I just recently read a great book:  Heaven is for Real.  It is wonderful!! I read it in a little over a day! 

We had a great weekend with nothing planned!  Sometimes those end up being the best!!  We stayed in both nights and just enjoyed playing with our sweet girl and spent Saturday enjoying the weather... going to the park and getting ice cream.  We ran some errands yesterday after church and then our normal pizza night at Papa Dougs.  Below are a few pictures from the weekend...
She is always squatting to check something out!

I think Daddy had a lot of fun at the park too!

Being silly...she makes faces like this all the time! We are constantly laughing at her!

Loving Minnie...who is about as big as her!

We were all snuggled up watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!

You guys have been so busy I don't know where to start!

I just can't get over how big AR is getting - and she's just so beautiful too!

AR is so cute and is growing up. Congratulations on the new baby.
I love reality shows, also. They are my guilty pleasure. I can't wait on the Housewives of New Jersey. They are my fav.
