Yesterday morning I went into Riley's room to get her out of her crib and I received my very first Riley smile!! It melted my heart and I am not even going to attempt to describe how it made me feel, but I couldn't feel more loved! Kevin had received his first smile on Monday morning, so I was definitely hoping mine would come soon. I haven't received one since, so I know that these are going to have to be earned!!
I am battling a yucky cold right now that just came on all of a sudden. I feel like I've hit a brick wall. Today Riley and I spent all day on the couch in our pajamas together. We watched Steel Magnolias (okay, she slept through it) and just hung out like two girls should. =) Yesterday we hit up Beachwood mall for our mall walking. On our way there we made a pitstop at Progressive to surprise daddy. He loved it. We didn't go inside, as we didn't want her around everyone just yet, but Kevin did come out to the car and we took a quick drive to the bank so he could have some Riley time.
It's hard to believe it is almost Friday again. So funny how I used to wish away the week for the weekend to come ... and now I pray everyday that time would just stand still. Riley will be 5 weeks told tomorrow. Wow. I seem to be amazed every week at this time. I just smile thinking of where I was and what was going through my mind, five weeks ago today.
Tonight was bath night for Riley. She actually seems to really enjoy her baths now, up until the point you have to shampoo her hair, which she doesn't care for. She smells so yummy now that I just want to keep smelling her - however, due to this cold, I am trying to keep my face away from hers. That kills me.
