LITTLE RILEY IS GROWING

RILEY
Some of you girls have been asking how Riley is doing, so here's the latest info.

Riley is now 9 weeks old. Today he went to the Health Centre and he weighs 5.2kg (11lb 4ozs).
Here is a photo I took of him on Saturday
He is getting to the cute stage now. Laughing, smiling and trying to talk.
I think he had a bit of wind in this photo as his eye is a little turned - it's not normally like that. Don't want you to think he is anything other than cute - which is so true.
I am such a proud Grandma.
The second photo I took of him on 26th November for Amy and Ryan to use on their Christmas cards. You might want to double click on this one it looks a little small.

Thanks Natasha for doing the cute little banner on my page. I had no idea how to do it and asked Natasha for some help.

Looks like there is another giveaway going on.

Bren, from Brenda's Little Cottage left a comment on my blog and said to spread the word that there is a giveaway going on, so I am letting all you girls out there know.

Dear Allison,
I think it is just wonderful how you always leave comments for me and yes some of the clutter is just to wondeful to eliminate...maybe organized clutter...or something. I don't think I will ever be clutter free.
You have a wonderful New year...you deserve it!!
