Happy 15 Months!

Riley is 15 months today!
This time last year she was just turning 3 months old.
Ever since bringing Beck home, Riley seems even bigger than she was last week. I keep wondering where my little baby went. When did I get a toddler? I ask myself this often. I'm still excited by her walking, and being able to feed herself. I love that she can let me know what she wants through some words and odd sounds/noises.

I know I've said this before but I'm still always surprised by the things that Riley will do. Just last night she saw something on the floor that she thought was trash so she took it to the trash can. It wasn't trash, just a white ice pack that I use after breastfeeding:) She was so proud of herself though. She mimics everything Leif and I do. It makes for a lot of entertaining moments around here. I love having her in the bathroom with me when I wash my face and put on lotion because she'll do the exact same thing and then look up at me and smile like "I'm just like you!" Oh, those moments are my favorite and I can't get enough of them.

I'm really proud of the way she has responded to Beck. She's always trying to give him her stuffed animals, hug him, kiss him, attempt to hold him. I think Riley's doing a wonderful job at being a big sister... I love watching her interact with him and love on him. While at the doctors yesterday, Riley watched over Beck with such seriousness while the doctor checked him. Beck screamed most of the time since he had to be naked and Riley kept glaring at the doctor, upset that he was making her baby cry.

I can't believe that I was blessed with such a wonderful daughter. I love that I get to be her mom and share so many amazing moments with her. Just a little while ago, she gave me a kiss just because. So blessed!
Trying to make her little brother feel better.

So precious. So impressed you've been blogging everyday since you've had Beck! Good for you! This is such a nice way to look back on those first days. You're children are so BEAUTIFUL. It's so great that Riley is handling being the big sister so well :)

This is sooo adorable! I was also thinking how neat it will be for Riley to be able to read the things you have said about her when she is older. The moments you have together are so priceless!

Now that she is a big sister, she isn't the "baby" anymore...I can't believe you have a "toddler"!
