I love these eyes!

Now if I could just get the smile to be a little less elusive.....I'd have perfection! Taken yesterday afternoon in the window light of my SIL's hospital room.

My Boy....

in blue (and refusing to let the smile show). Look at those sweet cheeks.

Monkey Toes

This is Leland, or "peanut" as he is affectionately called. He is such a mess these days, and the best baby I've ever been around. He is truly just a content little guy. He's always happy. How refreshing! LOL. He's so hilarious since he has found his feet. Take his pants off to change the diaper and the legs immediately go straight into the air and are grasped by his chubby little baby hands. Take the socks off, and he'll even suck on his big toe. Talk about limber. It's like he doesn't have any bones at all. Today he was over and trying to drink his bottle with his feet...or at least that's the way it appeared at one point. I love this kid. He gives the sweetest sugar to his Aunt Mamie.

A morning visitor.

Shot this one through my bedroom window. Not alot of great color in this one....but it IS a photo! I'm making progress.

Look Ma!

No training wheels! This poor kid has been wanting to learn to ride his bike without training wheels for what seems like forever, but his bike isn't the greatest and the tires won't stay pumped up. I guess he got tired of waiting for it to be fixed! On Friday, I had to babysit the kids my grandmother usually keeps because she had to go out of town. Riley came down after school and grabbed the first available bike without training wheels and took off. He bugged me until I called Mammaw to see if he could borrow the bike today so that he could ride. I made the call, and he and Bailey rode all afternoon. Mammaw told him to keep the bike until after his birthday (hoping that he will get a new one of his own for his birthday). My plan is to go tomorrow while he is in school and buy one for him. The hard part will be to keep it a secret until Saturday!

Not great pictures because it was still full sun outside when I took these, and I suck in full sun. There are big time blow outs. However, these are pictures that you just HAVE to take. These are the milestone pictures. The day a boy learns to ride his bike without training wheels...well I would think that would be something he'd remember for quite a while. My dad remembers his first bike. A used 26" girls bike that he got for Christmas. My Pappaw bought it from someone on his mail route. Mammaw laughed when I told her that Dad told Riley about his first bike. She just laughed and said "He hated that bike!" LOL. I hope Riley doesn't feel the same way about his new bike!
