Happy Birthday Riley!

My handsome little guy is 7 years old now!  It's hard to believe that 7 years ago he was only a few days old.  When people tell you time passes quickly once you have children they are not kidding!  It's been an awesome 7 years and I can't wait to see what kind of man he becomes.

Sword fight!

Me and Riley - he's so beautiful!

With his buddy from church, Kayden.

With his Mamaw...undoubtably the most important person in his world...even more than Mom - but I'm ok with that :)

Opening present with his friends Rylan and Jessica

And here's Jack, learning how to play the guitar with his Papaw...but mostly he just tried to slobber on it!

Mmmmm..... hands taste yummy!

This is how Jack spends most of his day - with his hand in his mouth.  Once he discovered that he could chew on it, it hasn't been far away!  He had his 4 month checkup last Monday and he is 25 3/4 inches long and weighs 15 pounds, 11 ounces.  He has almost tripled his birth weight.  He is in the 70th percentile for his weight and the 75th for height, which I find strange because he seems so chubby to me.  He can roll from back to front, and has been doing that since he was just 3 months old and two Saturdays ago he figured out how to roll from back to front, which he does any time you lay him down and then he gets mad because he doesn't want to be on his tummy.  He makes noises constantly, and has starting make the "m" sound.  I can't wait to hear him say mama!  He is a big ball of love, sweet and cuddly - until naptime, and then he has definite ideas on how he wants to be held, rocked, etc.  His doctor said it's recommended now not to start them on cereal until they're 6 months old, but each doctor is different, and he's HUNGRY!  I'll record it and post it on facebook, because I'm sure it will be hilarious.  I am so ready to sleep all night, so maybe once his tummy starts getting more full this will happen.

We got to spend the whole week of Thanksgiving at my parents, because Riley was out of school and we had a wonderful time!  Riley got to go to work with Papaw almost every day we were there.  They bought the 2 acres beside the old house and have been clearing it out, ripping up trees, and Riley was in heaven getting to help so much.  I don't think he would ever leave if we didn't make him :)  We're already looking forward to Christmas here in the Campbell house, but we've got to get past Riley's birthday first.  December is such a crazy month!

Lovin' this smile!

And lovin' watching him sleep!  He naps so well on my bed when I'm back there doing stuff - and the blanket isn't really in his face, it just looks like it.
