This was Riley's first Christmas. We celebrated at my parent's house, and Riley mostly slept through the whole thing. Silent Night this year.

Christmas at the Dieter's

We had Christmas early at the Dieter's so that we could be all together. Riley and Sullivan wore the same outfit (not planned) but oh so cute! Sully is on the left and Riley is on the right. The day was complete chaos - but wonderful chaos like always. This was the year of the baby for us with three new babies in the Dieter family. We will never have another year like this one.

Riley - One Month

Riley One Month 020

Riley is one month old today! It's hard to believe that time has already passed so quickly. Riley is doing well, staying up more in the day and sleeping longer at night. He is eating all the time so we figure he must be at least 8 lbs by now. His next doctor's appointment isn't until January so we will have to wait until then.

Christmas Cookies

We made some gingerbread cookies for christmas, though they probably won't last until then. Max and Jered decorated them with M&Ms and frosting. It has been tough to do the "Christmas" traditions this year with a new baby in the house. We try to do some things while Riley naps. Next year hopefully we will be able to more things together.
