Seven Whole Months!

Wow - seven months has flown by!!! I can't believe how big that Ruby is - I can honestly tell that she grows every day. To put it in perspective, here's a picture of her from the other day and one of her on the day that I brought her home from the hospital.

I bought her a "big-girl" carseat - a Britax Marathon. She's pretty much outgrown this one, so it's time to move on. Just in the nick of time too - carrying around her and the carseat has to be easily 50 lbs. Great for an upper-body workout, but it wears me out! I'm hoping that she likes her new one.
In other Big Ruby News, she has her first tooth! It came in yesterday - it's the bottom front left tooth. Her other front tooth should be coming in any day now too. I guess that I missed this in all of my reading, but I didn't realize how jagged baby teeth were. It's like I'm breastfeeding a shark. Not sure if you can see her new pearly white in this picture, but it's definitely there!

Ruby is getting the hang of baby food. She still hates squash, carrots, and rice cereal (with a passion). Oddly enough, the one food that she actually likes is prunes. Yuck - she can have them! :)
Here's a fun video of her crawling. She's still a little awkward at it, but she's getting the hang of it. I don't think it's possible for her to be any cuter!

Lazy Saturday Morning

Here are a few fun pictures from our lazy Saturday morning.....if you call waking up at 6:00a.m. and entertaining/chasing after a 7-month old "lazy"!! I still have the happiest baby on the face of the earth. She's pretty much crawling now (however, she's still working on the forward-motion), and her two bottom teeth should be coming in any day now.

Ruby's First 4th of July!

Ruby had a very fun 4th of July! We went over to Aunt Lindsay & Uncle Paul's house for a cookout. They live in our neighborhood and have the best yard for watching fireworks - we could see three really good shows from their front yard. Ruby had a blast spending time with everyone. She made a new best friend - Milton the Bulldog. She was hysterical with him - she was absolutely infatuated.

Ruby got to give the "Stretch Limo Stroller" a test for Aunt Lindsay - she's pregnant with TRIPLETS! Check out her blog - "Hat Trick" - the link is to the right. Ruby is very excited to meet her new friends.

Ruby also danced to some George Strait with Lindsay's dad, Doug. She didn't stop smiling all night long.

She loved the fireworks, but didn't last through the first show. She fell asleep in her carseat watching them. She wasn't scared of the loud noises at all!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
