Nonna's visit!!

Nonna came! It was just perfect. Too short but sweet, and left us wanting more :) Friday we played and ate. Saturday we were greeted with coffee (love!), played, watched Josh play rugby (freezing!), ate good food, and Sunday we were greeted with coffee (I wish I had a coffee delivery service every day!), and played and unfortunately had to say "bye bye!" (Ruby waved it). Love you, Nonna!

video cra cra crazy!

Some video of the Rubester for you...
First day crawling! She's not quite sure about this whole being mobile thing... especially with a camera in her face.

Day 2 of crawling: she's catching on!

My mom is coming into town tomorrow (yay Nonna Donna!) and I feel like Ruby in this video because of that...

(that giggle gets me every time!!)

Dunsen Designs? LOAD leggings??

Lindsey found this tutorial on how to make baby leg warmers. So we became crafty... we got tube socks, cut them up, hemmed them, and made these rockin' legwarmers. She has these neon polka dots, argyle, and stripes. They're awesome. Watch out, Etsy... here we come (not really - it took us like an hour to do one pair and we had to have Josh tell us how to string the needle...)!

Auntie and Uncle are back in town!

This weekend Auntie and Uncle made their way to the bay area and spent Friday through Monday with us... Ruby was ecstatic (and so were we, of course)!! We made our way to Josh's rainy rugby game on Saturday with a stop at Auntie Kim's store for coffee, big dinner with lots of friends on Saturday, had Sunday brunch at farmer's market, dinner at the Olsen's, and a lazy Monday morning. Mixed in there, of course, were plenty of snuggles and naps and playtime and singing and dancing. It was just lovely (and a great idea of what family vacations will be like in the future).

Lindsey and I also may have created a new business for ourselves... leg warmers for babies. Get excited (post to come...).

Oh that hipster. Ruby is sporting a little ensemble from her Uncle Tyler and Aunt Megan... they're from Portland. Which means Ruby is hippy hippy hipster in this get up. I mean, how many 9 month olds do you know who wear ponchos and have an emo do?? Case and point.

action shot (work it, Ruby!)...

Also - check out those TWO chompers (click on pictures to make them bigger...)!!

Our day started with sleeping in, we then had a family run at the track, and finally a lovely photoshoot... it's 73 and sunny. LOVE! Super indeed!!

NINE months!!

"I'm 3/4 year old today, mama" is what she'd say if she could talk... but right now it just kinda sounds like, "BABAbadadadaDABAaaaaaBwababebabeeedaaTouuuubaYAYAYAYAYAaaa" Apparently she has a lot to say and does so throughout the day - she's quite the babbler. As you saw earlier this week, she's feeding herself finger foods quite nicely - and if you watched the video closely, you may have noticed she may very well be a lefty like her pops. She got her first tooth this month (can see it in some of the pics below) and has fallen in love with her rubber ducky during bath time. Can you believe she's already 9 months old??

now THAT's my girl...

She sure can eat... atta girl!

She's just the sweetest thing. It's like it clicked overnight. One night she's looking at the pieces of food and then looking up with this look of "come on, already!" and the next morning she's shoveling it in like it's her job. You go, girl!
