I can't take it!

You are seriously delusional if you don't think this baby is awesome.

By the way, the 6 month stats:
20lbs, 26" long and his head is in the 100th percentile. Pretty much biggest baby head out there. Oh yeah, and I gave him a little trim to get the hair off his neck and out of his eyes. Maybe big heads grow hair faster...

6 months old!

Our little man is half a year old...unbelievable. I say that every month, but it's so true--especially since he's made it to a milestone. His official 6-month appointment is tomorrow so I'll update with stats later. We love hearing the weight/height reports!

Riley is at a super fun stage right now. He's a total giggle monster, loves carrots and probably anything else we will start to feed him. He can sit up on his own and I feel like he'll becrawling soon only because he is so darn curious. He is into everything he can get his hands on! We're going to be busy...

Oh yes, and Riley says if you want to give him a 6-month present you should make a donation to
Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Link to the left, or above). Apparently his mom is walking 60 miles in 3 days and is going to raise lots of money for this amazing organization! He also wants you to know that all donations go straight to the charity and will do very good things for women!

Here's some funny shots from his 6-month pictures that I took this evening. He cracks me up!


Dreams do come true.

I have just learned that the Gap loves me even more than I thought they did. The site has just launched...wait for it...combined shipping at Gap, Banana, Old Navy, and Piperlime!! Shop at them all, checkout at one time and pay only 7 bucks shipping. Why am I blogging about it? Because it makes me that darn happy.

In case you're as obsessed as I am, you can read about it here:

And if you aren't then you can go back to whatever it was you were doing before you learned this amazing new piece of knowledge and wonder what happened to the last minute of your life.

Wiggle baby!

Okay, so he's not crawling, but don't tell him that. He has no idea... The first video is a very proficient mastering of the back to belly roll. The second is just funny Riley cuteness.

First Mother's Day!

Yay for Mom's Day! It was such a great weekend! We spent last night with Mom, Andy, Jaimie and the kids and the "official" day today began with a breakfast in bed, continued with an I-phone and ended with dinner at the Millers, (and cookies and goodies on the front porch from dad!!) with lots of fun in the middle. I love our moms so much and I love, love, love my boys, --big and small. I am the luckiest!!

To all the moms we know and love--Happy Mother's Day!! You deserve so much more than a day. Hope yours was as happy as ours! :-)

Flip, flip, hooray!

Today was a good Miller day. The flip is officially SOLD! What a relief. I hadn't even posted that it was under contract because I didn't want to screw up our excellent luck. I've learned nothing in real estate is final until you get the keys or the check.

It took 2 months to sell, which was faster than I expected and we ended up selling it for our full asking price. Even better news? We learned that it appraised for higher than we sold it for! We more than doubled the property value of the house in about a year. Pretty good if you ask me...

The amazing Kevin really deserves many pats on the back. He put so many hours of sweat equity into the job and made an unappealing house into a beautiful home. The girl who bought it even said that it already felt like home and she loved it. It was actually really cool to hear her tell us about things she was going to do to it and where she was going to arrange things. That's some awesome-ness.

Hopefully, we'll be repeating this process in the future, but for now we're just going to enjoy this feeling of ahhhhhhhhh.

Tiny baby...

Cassie just sent me an e-mail that had this video attached. Can you believe how tiny Riley was here? He was brand, spankin' new, straight from the cooker. What an itty bitty sweetheart. Thanks, Cass for the clip!!

Happy Monday!

Here are some recent pics of Riley to get your week jump-started. Yes, I know, the hair is out of control...

The "official" 5 month picture, although about 5 days late.


This is how I found him playing in his crib last week. He likes to lay across the short way and watch his aquarium.



And some fun "Jumperoo" action at Grammy's house.

So adorable.

Seriously. I love this.
