My little Farmers Girl

Every year Eddie goes to an agent conference in downtown sac, and this year he decided to bring Riley. He did everything from getting her a custom made farmers shirt to ordering her a name tag the says Riley Medeiros, Jr. Agent. They looked so cute together and she was SO excited. My little girl all grown up.

The Look

our sweet smiling girl


"the look"

Here is our latest dilemma in our home. Eddie has decided to teach Addy how to give "the look" which is really just addy glaring at you. I realize that at first it was funny. She would glare at us when prompted and we would all laugh. But then she decided that she liked being quite the comedian and started glaring at people who would come say hi to her instead of giving her sweet smile that we are all so used to. I used to say how she was my friendly, social child who liked everyone. Now I am just trying to save people from the glare. And even though I don't approve, I still had to document this "attitude expression" as I know it is hopefully just a phase we will be able to break her of. Here is a picture of "the look". I also am attaching a pic of her smiling to let you know that she can still be sweet and loving when she wants to be.....

The Joys of Two




I feel like I am finally starting to enjoy having two children. It's not that I didn't enjoy them up until this point, it's that I was too busy to take joy in all the cute little things they do. But the older Addy gets the more she can act independantly. Sure she still rely's on me to feed her and hold her and love on her, but she can now play on her own. The first time I saw Riley and Addy play together I just about cried realizing that in such a short time the two of them would soon be the best of friends. Riley has matured into the most amazing big sister. She wants to teach Addy how to do everything and looks out for her when I walk into the kitchen or leave the room. I am so blessed to have such an amazing loving little helper in Riley.


Addy got her 1st tooth and is working her way into solids. We are still primarily on mush but we have added cheerios and noodles and scrambled eggs to the eadible list. I have learned from my food mistakes with Riley and am determined not to make them the second time around with Addy. And beleive it or not my daughter LOVES veggies! Squash, sweet potatoes, corn, peas, green beans.....you name it, she loves it!
