Riley & Parker

Last week I had the pleasure of trying to keep an extra kiddo during the day. Riley and Parker are a month apart and they had the time of their lives tearing my house apart (literally). All in all it was a very good day and good memories were made. I would do it again in a hearbeat!

They tore all of the couch cushions off of my couch and were throwing everything that was underneath them onto the floor so I figured I might as well get them to clean it up since they think vacuum's are still cool. I wonder how long that will last?

Parker wanted to ride Riley's horse all day. So cute...

Hill Country Getaway

This past weekend we took a trip to Nana's timeshare at Canyon Lake. First off, the hill country is one of my favorite places to go in Texas. It amazes me at how different the scenery is there and how Trey and I automatically relax. There isn't good cell reception there so it's nice to be able to disconnect from the world around us. Besides the weather we had an amazing time with Trey's family. Of course Riley made the best of every situation and kept everyone entertained and was the center of attention.

Riley wanted to swim the entire time we were there but couldn't because of the rain. She wore her bathing suit most of the day and her and her new friend Casey entertained themselves by playing in the bathtub.

Riley finally got to swim that evening and thought it was so cool b/c she could swim in the dark!

It's about time!

Okay, so it's been over a year since I posted last and I truly apologize. I am bound and determined to keep up now. Life in the Lander's house is full speed ahead as usual and we are just enjoying life. Riley is growing WAY to fast for us but we are loving every minute of it. It's football season which means we don't slow down a bit. I was a little worried that Riley would be too much of a handful this year but to my surprise she loves Katy Tiger football and looks forward to it every week.

Now that I have finally caught up with my blog I decided to make one more post. If you are like me, every now and then you just want to peek in on the little one and stare at them. Sometimes I wonder if she dreams and what she dreams about. I always worry if she got a good nights sleep. I often wake up in the middle of the night and turn on the video monitor just to take a look at her and make sure she is covered up. This morning at 3 am when I couldn't sleep I went in there with my camera and took a few pictures.

I remember when she was so tiny she didn't even extend past the bottom of her boppy pillow and now she takes up half the bed. We have already started talking about when we need to convert her bed to a toddler bed and I think back at the day we put the crib together. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was in the delivery room anticipating the arrival of this perfect baby girl. I keep thinking that life will slow down for just a second so I can enjoy the small things and for whatever reason it doesn't. So even though I didn't sleep well last night I have been given the opportunity to slow down and think about what's the most important thing in the world to me, and that is Riley.

If she doesn't want it, then so be it!

For those of you who don't know my daughter will not wear anything in her hair or on her head. As a matter of fact if you even say hair she immediately grabs her head because she thinks you might have snuck a bow in it! Therefore, if she doesn't want anything in her hair, or on her head, then no one else should have anything either. The other night at dinner she insisted on taking Trey's hat off!

You know you have a toddler when...

You know you have toddler when they no longer want to ride in the stroller but they want to push it with all your crap in it. I was so amused by Riley the other day, yet a little sad when she didn't want to be my sweet little people watcher and sit the in the stroller. Instead she insisted on pushing the stroller around into people. She gets really mad when you try and help too!

After our trip to the mall we met Trey for lunch downtown. They are so cute together, I love to watch them interact!
