A Fortnight Old

Hooray! I'm two weeks old today!

I know it seems like all I do is sleep . . .

. . . but there are moments when I have my eyes open.

Plus, there were some exciting events this week. On Wednesday night, a big storm knocked out our electricity. Daddy lit some candles, but we ended up going over to Grandma T's to stay the night. The blackout didn't bother me, and I got some great sleep at Grandma's.

The biggest thing is that I got to meet my cousin Josie!

Wow, she looks so much bigger than me. I'd better keep eating if I want to catch up. Speaking of which, I got weighed at the doctor's and I had gained back the weight I lost in the first week, plus 4 ounces! So I was 8 pounds, 10 ounces last Friday, and Mommy thinks I'm probably past the 9-pound mark by now.

I also got to meet the little girl who lives across the street. She's almost a year old. Mommy says we can play when I get bigger.

The other big news is that my umbilical cord stump thingy fell off. I know it's gross, but it was a big step for me to get my belly button!

All right, I'm pretty tired from all this work updating the blog. Time for a nap.


  1. I'm noticing that the raised arm over the head is the prefered sleeping style for Miss Riley.

  2. Happy Fortnight Riley!! and congrats on your brand new belly button! I bet it is super cute just like the rest of you!
