Victoria is six months old! We went for her six month check-up today and she is 28" tall and weighs 17lbs 1oz. That puts her in the >97% on height and 75% on weight. Doc said that if she keeps it up, she will be 5'10" .... too cool! The neat thing is that she is the height that Riley was at 6 months ... but he had 3 pounds on her, weighing in at a whopping 20lbs 4oz. Quite the chunk! She is doing great and very healthy. She never does well with the shots and went down early for her afternoon nap. Hopefully she will feel better when she wakes up.
As you can see from the picture, we got her a swing for our "swing setter" as Riley calls it. She loves to swing. Being outside calms her down and she gets really relaxed, so having the swing is just perfect. We are anxious for the cooler days so that we can spend more time playing on the swing setter.
So we have a new Riley-ism, as I will start calling them. Some of his more famous ones are rainbrella for umbrella, to-later for later (ya know like tonight, tomorrow, today), circle box chips for pringles ... seriously, he came up with these all by himself. Anyway, they have been learning the pledge of allegiance at school and the other evening, Pops and Gigi (mommy's parents) were taking us out to dinner and we were all saying it together. Now keep in mind that Riley is crazy about Star Wars right now. We got to the word republic and he said "that is in Star Wars," and we were like "that's right." Then we got to the "one nation, under ____," and waited for him to fill in the blank, thinking that it would be a no-brainer for him. Then he said "Attack." That's right, "one nation, under Attack!" Hilarious isn't it?! Anyway, we will never recite the pledge ever again without thinking of the latest Riley-ism (and probably you won't either!).
As you go throughout your week this week, please keep Carey's best friend Jason in your prayers. He is going on a mission trip to an orphanage in China for two weeks to spread the goodnews of God's love. Pray for traveling mercies, that souls will be won for the Lord and for his sweet family at home for two weeks without him.
