That extremely suspicious baby has grown into such a rambunctious, happy, funny, tender-hearted boy. God, it’s amazing to think eight years have gone by. It just gets better and better.

It does keep getting better and better. Eight is a great age!

It’s been wonderful watching that suspicious lil boy grow up! I will admit when my girl arrived almost 5 mos ago, I did have a few “What would Linda do?”-type moments, and reassured myself on far more than one occasion in the wee hours of the morning when my lil bean would only sleep in her bouncy seat (I think you had a similar experience with Dylan?). Anyway, these first 8 years have been a trip and I can’t wait for the rest!

Happy Birthday Riley from New Zealand! The suspicious baby photo is just gorgeous, neat to see how he’s grown over the years. And, as a long-time reader of your blog, happy 8 years of parenthood to you and JB! :)

Seriously, is there a portrait of you in your attic getting older?

In the second-to-last photo, the backdrop almost looks fake because it is impossibly beautiful. I can’t think of a better place to have a birthday.

The amazing thing to me is that in 8 years, you don’t appear to have aged a day.

Echo what Mis Ris said above – I see 8 years of Riley getting older but in those 8 years you’ve gotten younger!

It’s also so fun to see that Riley will forever have memories of his birthday celebrated in gorgeous weather with family on the banks of the Umpqua.

I’d love to see a pic of what cousin Brody looks like these days! A real big kid by now I bet.

I think I marvel at this annually (possibly only to myself), but I started reading your blog when you were pregnant with Riley and wow. Hard to believe he’s 8 already. What a great kiddo.

Reading this I realize I’ve been with you for these 8 years, I remember when you were writing for fans disappointed that you were going to become “another mommy blog”. I didn’t have a kid at the time, but she’s 5 now, and in all these years and all your stages, your voice has stayed steady. I appreciate that. You are talented and a damn good read. Happy belated birthday to Riley.

I picture in my head how a jump is completed because if you cannot decide to it you’re likely to harm your self. That means being aware exactly where you might be inside the air constantly, and how you can bail out safely and stay away from landing in your head.

Hey! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work?
I am brand new to blogging but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
Thankyou!
