We made it to one! Why does Riley seem like she is still so tiny? I think it might be because I know what cute little baby one year olds grow into. I didn't with Callum.
Riley is on the brink of being a full on walker. She is able to balance on her own and take up to 4 steps unassisted. It's a matter of days now.
We had a family party to celebrate her day. She's loved and happy and that's all I care about.
Riley went through a really fussy stage with me from about 8-12 months. I feel that she has finally turned a corner. She is happy to play with Callum or by herself. She doesn't feel the need to be constantly held by me. Bedtime and naptime are a cinch. She is happy to go down when still awake. I really love that about her.
She doesn't have much hair yet. She is kind of a blonde baldie still. I can tell it will be light brown/bald...it's just not growing much. Her eyes are envious blue. They can stop you on the street shade of blue. Lucky gal.
