good men.

When large men do great things for small girls.

Exhibit A: Papa John

Exhibit B: Daddy

All for her...

Photos from Nonna and Papa's visit this past weekend... Ruby is so blessed!

can you say crazy?

It's been crazy - hence the no posts in over a week! I apologize. Ruby is just as cute as ever, but we are just as busy as ever and our netflix with Dexter took priority over blogging this week... oops. Here a few randoms from the phone... sorry for the blur... but enjoy!

Josh and I are off to our anniversary weekend! Thanks mom and dad for taking the girl and giving us a morning to SLEEP IN. Oh man. CANNOT WAIT.

ps. Love skinny jeans on this girl. Too cute!

from mighty to mouse...

So... Josh was in an accident last week. Like, as in, the day we left for LA. He's totally fine. The truck? Not so much. We found out today that the truck most likely will be written off so we've been in search mode for a new mode of transport for him for a few days now... until we find that new member of our family, he's in a rental. A rental truck? I'll let you be the judge... meet Josh's new work truck (hopefully just until Friday)!

Josh: "I love it! It's just so zzzzippy!"

the happiest place on earth... in a couple years...

We are in LA! We spent the weekend in LA with Joey and Lindsey and baby O. We flew in Thursday night and went to some food trucks for dinner (I wish San Jose had food trucks! so fun!).

Friday was a busy day... we went to Disneyland to meet up with Josh's cousins for the day. Ruby was... well... pretty fussy. I think she's too young for Disneyland. Too old just to be held the whole time and too young to even realize that she's in the happiest place on earth! Don't get me wrong - she was a trooper. But she's not a fan of waiting in lines and, well, that's all you do at theme parks! This picture pretty much sums it up:

Josh's cousins:

They love "baby Ruby"... :)

Saturday was a day at the park and some chillaxing at home. We even made a fort!

Heading home later today... thanks Auntie and Uncle for a wonderful weekend!

FIFTEEN months!!

We officially have a walker on our hands. I think I can say that because she prefers to be upright now - before (as in, 5 days ago) it was "yes, I can do this, but I'd prefer to crawl thank-you-very-much..." She's recognizing all sorts of words and can act out simple tasks when asked. "Ruby, where are your shoes?" ... she'll walk over to her diaper bag, pull out her purple Keen's (thanks mom and dad!), show them to us, and then signs "please" for us to put them on. She's a smart cookie that one. She has a big month ahead... we're heading down to LA next week to go see Auntie Lindsey and Uncle Joey and meet up with some of Josh's cousins at Disneyland. Three weeks from now, Ruby will have her first night at home WITHOUT mom and dad. Say what? (Nonna and Papa have given us the anniversary gift of sleeping in. In a wonderful hotel room. In Napa. Oh bliss.) Then, in a month from now, we'll be in Washington DC. Wow. I'm exhausted just thinking of the next month ahead of us! Time flies and before you know it I'll be posting 16 month old pics, first day of kindergarten pics, graduating highschool pics... but before I start sobbing, let's take a look at Ruby at 15 months!

our little chimp...

Compare this...

To this...

Somewhat similar, huh? :) After dinner mess calls for no shirt for our little monkey.

PS - When there were 2 chimps in the first video, it absolutely reminded me of Ruby and Levi at daycare together. Just precious those two.

PPS. Remember when you used to step on legos. Those suckers hurt!
