Eleanor's ELEVEN months!

Oh my word. Next month I have a one year old. Wow! Well this month Eleanor continues to grow and grow - yet her teeth haven't moved. This girl still has only her 2 front lower teeth but can eat anything you put in front of her (talented gums...). But you can see SIX teeth just about to poke through. Isn't that crazy?? She's standing up unassisted and starting the process of "cruising" the furniture. He voice still sounds like a Muppet... but an adorable Muppet :) She says "Mamamamammama" and plays "chase" - I'll creep up on her and she'll squeal and turn around and crawl (fast!) the other way wanting me to chase her - just about the cutest thing ever! She ADORES her sister (her sister can do no wrong) and is really into clapping - I'll go into get her from naptime and she'll be standing up and start clapping when she sees me. Adorable. She is adventurous and funny and does this bashful look when you point at her with a big smile. I'm in love. She's wonderful.  One more month until the big 1!!

Ruby at eleven months...

3 years old!!!

Happy 3rd birthday (over one month ago), Ruby!! Ruby's birthday was in early May and I thought it was about time (in early June) to document it here. 


Ruby had a breakfast brunch for her friends complete with an obstacle course. How fun! It all started with the Bacon Balance Beam... to the Sausage Squeeze... the Cereal Bowl Ball Pit... and some Snap Crackle and Pop bubble wrap bouncing! There were other legs of the course, but those were the popular ones. In fact, I think they camped out at the ball pit for awhile...

After all the activity, there was of course a cake... a doughnut cake. YUM. What more could a 3 year old want?? Such a blast!

Happy birthday, sweet girl!!
