Elf on the shelf

On the move

From 4-6 months, she grew 3 inches. At 5 months, she mastered sitting and began crawling. Now at 6 months, she's pulling up on everything. If I'd let her drive, I think she could...

Future Alma Mater?

Oh how Daddy hopes so...

Riley enjoys a fast-paced life because she has 'things to do' and 'places to be.' She can roll (literally) with the big dogs but takes an alternate route in getting to her destination for it's always...backwards.
