I've been a mama for nine Mother's Days now, and I've had some good ones. But let me tell you - this year is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Riley let me sleep in until 8:30am (she's had a fever all weekend, so we didn't go to church this morning). Then Ryan and Alli went to go get me donuts and Starbucks, the breakfast of champions! And since Riley seemed to be feeling all right, we decided to go on our first family bike ride. Ryan and I got bikes last weekend, and we've been antsy to try them out all together.
A few nights ago I was getting Alli ready for school the next day by having her lay out her clothes. She said "You know, Mom, I really need some new clothes." "I know you do, Alli. I'll go get you some. What are you into these days? Jeans and t-shirts still okay, or do you want to change it up?"
"I think jeans and t-shirts. That's my swagga." This statement was followed by two hands in deuces thrown up in the air.
Radio silence. Then "Um, what did you say?"
"That's my swagga. The jeans and t-shirts." More deuces.

I've made it no secret that Easter is not one of my favorite holidays - one of the major reasons being that it's on a Sunday, so I always have to travel! This year my family did me the honor of letting me hostess Easter at my own house, so it made it just a little bit sweeter.
Boy, do I feel sheepish. It's been over a month since I last posted! Spring has been a flurry of activity for our family, and I've been collapsing into bed at night without the energy to blog. Now I'm posting Riley's ten month update when she's almost eleven months old! Please forgive me. I'll do better, I promise!
Our family has been blessed to know three, yes THREE couples who had babies on my birthday weekend! March is a fantastic month to be born, and I am happy to share my birth month (and even my birthDAY in one case) with these new little sweeties!
I've alluded to this several times on the blog, but Ryan and I are making Riley's baby food ourselves. I had three big wishes for giving Riley the best start possible: breastfeeding her the first year, cloth diapering, and making her baby food. All three of those were pretty ambitious and would require a lot of work on my part, but I really wanted to make it happen. Breastfeeding has gone very well, even after me going back to work when Riley was twelve weeks old. I think a lot of that is helped by the fact that I'm home with her two days a week.
This weekend marked the annual event lovingly known as Birthday Extravaganza. It's only the second time in history that it's been held in Fayetteville, so I loved having a house full of people over!
Apparently Alli wasn't aware of the tradition of pinching someone who isn't wearing green on this holiday, so when I told her last night as we laid out her green pants and green shirt, she got a gleam in her eye.
