My Baby Boy is 4

I'm a horrible mother. Riley turned 4 on January 3 and I'm just now getting around to posting his slideshow. But a month isn't long in the grand scheme of things, right?

My Bruisin' Boy

Born: January 3, 2005, at 1:36 pm in Orem, Utah

Weighed: 8 lbs. 7 oz. and was 21 in. long

Now weighs: 45 lbs. and is 44 in. tall

Favorite phrase of last year: Let me do it mom. It's too tricky for you.

Is a pleaser like me, but is naughty like Ryan. So when he gets in trouble he cries and says, "But mom, I just want you to be happy."

Makes up silly nicknames. Right now I'm Mamarooski.

My baby boy. He's growing up too fast.

How do they keep getting so big?! I love to see his sense of humor, but also goodness through the pictures. Four? How did it happen? I'm telling you, I wish they would stay small.

You are not a bad mom just a busy mom! :)

Mamarooski??? Cute! I love that he makes up nicknames - just like his daddy. :) I can't believe he is 4. I loved the slideshow. He's grown up so much in the last year! I love you Riley!!!

What a fun slide show! I can't believe how grown up he is. I especially love the pictures of him lying next to Sophie. : )
