Oh! This is also why I did not participate in Ten on Ten this month. I fully intended to, but somehow it slipped my mind on Saturday. Sorry!
Riley also turned 6 months old on Sunday 5/11. I just took her in for her apt. today and she is 16 lbs 9.5 oz and 27 1/4 inches tall. A very tall girl - in the 90th% for her age. She checks out beautifully and was squirming around, smiling, cooing and sticking everything in her mouth, including her toes when the doctor was trying to examine her. What an active girl! She is starting to sit up on her own for several minutes at a time and is cutting her bottom two front teeth. We can feel them cutting through, as well as see the holes on her gum line. It's hard to imagine our little baby is already 6 months old! I will start her on rice cereal next week after we get back from our trip...which leads me to my next bit of news. We leave tomorrow morning for San Francisco. We will spend 4 nights in the city to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary this Saturday May 17. We have a few things we'd like to do, but mostly we're excited to be together, walk and eat our way through that lovely city. Oh! And catch some sun too. The weather forecast looks wonderful - 70's and 80's the whole time we're there. I'll be sure to post some pictures and report on our time there.

I took Riley to story time at the library on Monday and she loved it. I was quite surprised by how much she loved it. She smiled, laughed, babbled and seemed to really enjoy the stories, songs and dancing. We will continue to go for sure!
I also started a Mommy & Me Yoga class. I have been going the past 5 weeks and have 5 more to go. Riley lays next to me on her own little yoga blanket and she plays with her toys while her Mom tries her hardest to perform the poses and regain her strength back! It's great because if any of the babies get fussy, the instructor will pick them up, or show us how to hold our baby while doing the pose. I'm taking this class with two other girlfriends, and we often grab lunch or coffee afterwards...ahhh...the life of a mother!
Do you have favorite activities to do with your baby? I'm always looking for more ideas!
