Yes, it's her again!

Last night we were all relaxing outside and my husband was grilling steaks for dinner. A normal person would have sat there and relaxed and enjoyed the moment. Well, I tried but I am not normal! I decided to take Ryleigh across the street and take some pictures of her. She has the cutest non-smiling face, but I am never able to capture it because she is ALWAYS smiling. She also makes "raspberries" and her lips do the most adorable pursed together look but again, it's hard to capture. And she is sitting up so well now, there are just too many memories I want on "film" even though they are forever etched in my heart so I had to try! The grass was pretty tall and the hardest stiffest grass I have ever seen, so there is nothing under that blanket besides grass even though it may look like there is something lumpy under there! Here are a few I have edited:


Okay, I have a confession. Ryleigh is not a thumb sucker. None of my children have ever been thumb suckers. I have secretly wished one of them would be just for a day so I could get a thumb sucking picture because they completely melt my heart. Well, this is close enough!!





She only fell over once!

She looks so sweet! I had two thumbsuckers for 8 years!!! Now we are paying for it in braces. But I did get some pretty cute thumb sucking photos.

She has such "smiley" eyes even when her mouth isn't smiling. Is she this happy all the time? Beautiful baby and photos!
