Riley's newest obsession is Pokemon. I honestly don't know how it works and frankly I don't think he does either. But what makes this scene even sweeter is the fact that all 6 of his cards, (which I think are in his hand,) were given to him by his school buddies so that they can play. How nice is that?
Yes it's true, I looked at my sweet little boy today and noticed that he is becoming a little man. This is something I've been watching for a while. It first hit me at church a couple of weeks ago, when he bent down to fix his shoe. I thought to myself, "His legs are longer," and then when he stood up, I realized that yes his pants were a bit short. But I don't think it's just him getting taller, I have seen a change in his facial features and in his body structure all together. It actually made me a bit sad.
Although Amelia is the youngest girl, Riley is still my youngest boy. He is more sensitive, loving, compassionate, genuinely complimentary towards everyone. You'll notice in my blog and emails I very often refer to him as my sweet little boy because that title sums him up. (well 99% of the time anyway.)
I'm sure I'll be typing this again when his voice changes, gets chest hair and discovers "hot girls."
