so big!

My parents were in town over the past weekend and my mom brought her Flip with some early footage of Ruby for me to have. Here's Ruby at about 1 week old.

So Benjamin Button like! It's crazy to see this because she's so skinny and little and Josh's hands look HUGE on her! Now she's a big girl...

...almost 3 months old and just as charming as can be. 3 Month old shots to come next week! Can you believe it!?!

looky looky, I got some bookies...

Yesterday in the mail Ruby received a few books that I ordered for her... some are classics, some I had when I was little, some just sounded fun. I love books!

Today we read Brown Bear Brown Bear... she's a fan.

busy busy busy

We are busy bees! We've had busy weekends since June and things are still going... So far, we've:

Had Joey and Lindsey here 2 weekends in a row
Went to Rocklin for a wedding
Luke (Josh's brother) was in town this past weekend
My parents are in town this upcoming weekend
Lindsey is up next weekend while Josh goes down to LA for a bachelor party
We're going to Ohio for a wedding the next weekend
And then we have a weekend to ourselves (although I'm sure something will come up to fill our time... that's the joy of having an adorable baby that everyone wants to see!)

But the real exciting news... I'm going to attempt Zumba tomorrow.

I'm not looking forward to flourescent lights, mirrors, post-baby weight jiggle, double sports bras, and sweat sweat sweat... but I AM looking forward to a good work out. Joanna is kind enough to come with me... for moral support (and possible physical support if I pass out mid-shimmy). Wish me luck.

Ruby = what a champ!!

Ruby is a great traveler... at least, she was on roadtrip #1. We traveled to Rocklin... from the San Jose area that is about 3 hours... ish. Maybe 2 1/2. Traveling there on a Friday afternoon? It takes about 4-5. UGH. But... what does Ruby do the whole 4-5 hour stop and go car ride? SLEEP. The WHOLE RIDE! What the???

THEN, while at Connie's house (Auntie Lindsey's mom), she slept each night for at least 4-5 hours straight (which is normal now - thank goodness), and napped each day from about eleven to 2/3. What the?? (This is, of course, after I tell Connie that this child just will not sleep more than 15-45 minutes at a time during the day. Ruby made me out to be a liar!)

THEN, we took her to the wedding on Saturday night... she stayed inside during the service with Connie but came out to play for the reception. Total champ. Just was totally content being held in her cute party dress. And then fell asleep around 10, and stayed asleep (through wedding noise, car seat transfers, and a whole lot of flash photography) until 3AM! I love this kid. She's great! :)

THEN (I KNOW!), she slept the whole 2 1/2 car ride home even though it meant sleeping past her feeding time. She then woke up when we got home, fed, and went to bed for another 4 hours or so. This kid is on fire!! (not literally, people...). She's amazing. What a champ Rubster... what a champ.

**Thanks to Connie for taking care of us over the weekend!!**

road trip!!

Here's hoping for a sleeping baby! Ruby is going on her first road trip/getaway this weekend. We're heading up to the Sacramento area to go to a wedding and hang out some more with Auntie Lindsey and Uncle Joey... We'll be leaving tomorrow and coming back Sunday. We made of list of things to bring for Ruby... man - sure is different from just jumping in the car and going! I wouldn't be surprised if I forgot MY stuff in the process of packing all her stuff!! Anyway - we're off!! Happy weekend!

Here are some recent pics from my phone to tide you over....

auntie and uncle visit...

Auntie Lindsey and Uncle Joey came up for the long weekend and Ruby had some good quality time with them... they rocked her to sleep, fed her a couple times, gave her a bath, held her, loved her, and had some good chats with the lady... she's getting so vocal! Here's a glimpse of her and Uncle having a little heart to heart...

in honor of Canada day....

... we present to you the halfsie... with Quatchie, our Canadian friend...

She's still a bit small for it now, but it should fit just right around Canadian Thanksgiving.

Happy Canada Day! And thank you Annie for "the best outfit ever"- quote straight from Josh's mouth.
