Almost 8 Months

I can't believe how fast time flies. Ryleigh is almost 8 months old now. Dad had a little photo session with Ryleigh while we were there. He got some pretty cute shots. These were my two favorite.

She loved playing with this toy. Dad snapped this picture while he was watching her one morning. Very cute shot Dad!

Dance Dance Revolution

While we were at my parents' we busted out the playstation and played a few games. Mom and Dad were not too sure about the whole thing but they decided to give it a try. Mom loved it and had to do a song over and over again until she got better than a C on it. It was pretty entertaining. We threatened to put the video on my blog but Tana has that on her camera so I will just put the pictures.
We also played Rock Band, but somehow I didn't end up with any pictures.

Christmas

This year we made the trip to my parents' house in Montana for Christmas. We had horrible roads getting there but we are grateful we made the trip. Both of my younger sisters were there along with their husbands and my little niece Mariah. We had a great time.

Ryleigh and Mariah played well together minus the time Mariah came and sat on Ryleigh. She didn't like that too much.

They were supposed to be opening their Christmas pjs but they were more interested in each other than the gifts on their laps.


The babies sporting their new pjs

Mom sure loved having her two grandbabies spend Christmas with her.

Ryleigh got a learning purse from Santa.

Here is the plate Grandma made her.
Tana and Nathan live in Denver and had a few chances this summer to watch the Broncos practice. After practice they had numerous players autograph this football for us. We were pretty excited. It is a great addition for our Bronco room.

A Visit with Santa

We took Ryleigh to visit Santa and she wasn't too sure about him at first.
But it didn't take long for her to warm up to him.

Some videos of Ryleigh

Here is Ryleigh's attempt of crawling. As you can see at the end, she gives up and either rolls to her back or lays on her tummy and sucks her thumb.

In this one she is trying to get the camera until she is distracted by something else on the bed.

PS, this is what happens to the hair when dad is home with her and gives her a bath. He forgets to brush it. Oh sorry, he just informed me that he brushed it but after it dried.

Are We in Glendive?

I thought we weren't going to Mom and Dad's for another week and a half. Apparently our weather here has been preparing us for Glendive, MT. It has been in the single digits and teens all week. This is how Ryleigh prepares to go out along with a huge blanket over top.
