8 weeks, almost 2 months!

Riley turned 8 weeks old today! I can't believe how fast time has gone... While it feels like it was just yesterday that we brought Riley home, it also feels like we've had her with us forever. These last 8 weeks have been more than amazing, and it makes me so excited for what is to come! I can't believe that every week Riley does something different... Like her latest accomplishment has been smiling back at Leif and I. She started smiling a little when we went to Oregon and now its been almost anytime we smile at her. Every time she smiles back at Leif or I, it feels like the first time and we get so excited!

She's also gotten to the point where she can keep her head up without dropping it at all. From day one she's always held her head up. Obviously when she was a newborn she could only hold it up for a few seconds, haha. But now when she's on her tummy she can hold her head up the whole time, and when we sit her up, her head stays up and doesn't drop. Its so funny how little things like seeing the first smiles, hearing the first coo's, watching the first baby push-ups, make a parent feel so proud and excited. Riley has never ceased to amaze us:) And continues to do so every day! What a blessing she is.
