12/30 — More Riley
It’s kind of hard to get enough. He’s SO CUTE.
I gave Riley my old Flyers jersey from when I was like six, or eight, I dunno. Small. Dad made it for me; he had the sporting goods store at the time, so it was kind of a natural. I was such a huge Flyers fan when I was a kid, it was probably ridiculous, but oh well. I loved going to games. Riley will, too.
The jersey is a little beat up and I don’t know how long it’ll last, but that’s fine. If he gets to wear it a couple times I’ll be happy. Better than letting it sit around until it moulders away!
…I may have cried a little while I wrapped it up.
Jamie (one of my roommates) has been experimenting with felted stuff, and she tried making a pair of slippers. They came out a little smaller than anticipated…but they fit Riley just about perfectly. They’re like little elf shoes. Thank you Aunt Jamie!
Mom got me a seriously awesome African basket for Christmas. Currently it’s holding the rest of my Christmas presents (and probably the cat), but we couldn’t resist putting Riley in it. He promptly tried to eat the handle.
Mom is…smitten. Besotted. In love. As well she should be.
The whole family. Not quite, really, since Ryan was taking the picture, but it’s the women of the Jones family, anyway. And Riley. Cos baby. Yeah.
I’ll be hanging onto this one.
