A visit from Grandma & Grandpa.

Bret's mom and grandparents came down from Oregon for a visit. It was the first time meeting River for Grandma & Grandpa Reading(Great-Grandma & Grandpa to little River!)

4 generations!...



River's middle name is after his Great Grandpa(Roland). I thought this was a sweet picture of the 2 of them together...




River loves Grandmas!!..






Some pictures of our cute boy. He's getting so big!..







also...It was Bret's birthday on the 11th. We went out to dinner with some of the family, but I forgot to take any pictures. Oh well. (ahem...43 years old!!!) Love you, Bret!

First shots!!

I took River to his 2 month appointment this morning, where he had his first vaccinations!

Before we left. Poor lil' fella has no idea what's coming.....or does he? Call me crazy but the look on his face has a hint of fear.


He was not too happy about being poked 3 times! The nurse was really quick, which I was grateful for. (I was too embarrassed to look the her in the eye and let her see that I was crying too!)


Somebody feels much better when his clothes are on! PRESTO CHANGO!...


And he's spent... (fast asleep in his car seat the minute I get him in the car.)


The appointment went really well. The Dr thought everything was just how it should be. He's grown 3 inches since he was born (23 inches now!), and is weighing in at a hefty 10 lb 7 oz! AND...this is my favorite part...sleeps 6-8 hours at a time during the night!!!! I thought for sure I was going to be getting up to feed him at least every 3 hours. Nope. My boy likes his sleep (just like his momma!). He's also really starting to smile now. It's SO cute!

I can't believe he's already 2 months old! Kinda makes me a little sad sometimes. But it's so exciting to see him change, and to see him start showing his little personality. Too cute :)

New pics of River

My sister-in-law, Jamie, took some pictures of River while she was visiting from Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago. She takes such great pictures!! And once again she did not disappoint...






Thank you, Jamie, for capturing the sweetness of River while he's still so tiny!
