the makeshift walker...

I was folding laundry and Ruby up and stole my laundry basket! She was pushing it around while on her knees and thought she was sooo funny. Then she discovered she could do it on her feet... I think we're getting closer to walking!

This little girl loves her dad. LOVES him. When he's outside working in the garage, this is where Ruby is the majority of the time. Sitting, kneeling, standing by the front screen door yelling baby talk at him to get back in the house! It's not angry cries or even sad cries. But you can tell by her tone that she ain't messin around. "You best get your butt back in here, dad!!" I should record it sometime. It's hilarious.

These were taken right after our Easter photo shoot. Ruby and I came outside while Josh stayed out to sand down an old table... as soon as we came inside, this is what ensued...

ahhh... good lighting...

I'm no photographer, but good lighting makes all the difference and even I know that. Sunday afternoons seem to be the best time for us to go out in the backyard and have ourselves some photo shoots... loving this lovely weather!

swing, swang, swung.

Ruby had her first swing experience! She's still quite tiny for the swing, but she enjoyed watching the kiddos and having mama tickle her feet.

PS - it's GORGEOUS here. 75. Sunny. Perfect day for this little family to chillax at the park!

ELEVEN months!!

It's been 11 months! This has been such a fun stage - she's ticklish, loves her mama and daddy, is super vocal, crawls around everywhere and pulls herself up onto furniture, loves to explore new areas of the house, and has just the cutest little laugh and personality! She says "Dada dada dada da-DEE!" all the time. We'll be in her room and she'll hear the door open and she'll look towards the door and say "Da Dee??" We're working on the Ma sounds, but that's a little bit harder to manage for little mouths. :) She'll clap when we say "Yay Ruby!", she'll sign "all done" when she finishes her milk or "more" if she wants more puffs, she opens and closes all the doors in the house, and she gives high fives. She's pretty awesome.

request central

We take requests. We do. We're like Delilah. So if you want to see Ruby doing something, just ask.

I want to see an Irish Ruby.


I want to see that girl move!

Today... the bird crawling...

Now I'm in an uploading mood:

Over a month ago... picking through for blueberries...

My mom was in town and Ruby wanted to jump! jump!

all better...

Ruby's all better... and has been since Tuesday night. Sorry I left you on pins and needles. You all must have been so worried! :)

Ruby's hair is growing like weeds. Pretty, fine, and blond weeds. So we've been clipping her bangs back with a little barrette out of her eyes for some time now. But that barrette never stays in place. So I moved up to the elastic the other day and she was just too cute not to capture!
