My Little Bee

Up until recently, Ruby hasn't said her own name yet. I wasn't worried - she's been able to spell her name for a few months now so I knew it was only a matter of time until she picked it up. One night Ruby was admiring herself in the mirror, so I asked who that was. She pointed to me and said "Mama", so I pointed to her and said, "But who is that?" Her response....... "Bee". I was stumped for a moment until I figured it out. "Oooohhhhh, Ru-bee!" I thought it was adorable that she called herself Bee. It's a nickname that just might stick.

I've been debating what to dress Ruby as for Halloween (I'm enjoying one last year of getting to pick her costume myself). It just made sense - what better way to remember where she was developmentally at this time than to dress her as a bumble bee! I'll always remember the first name she gave herself when I look at these pictures. :)

Nana and Grandpa came with us to the pumpkin patch at the church down the street from my house to take pictures today. My dad, the amazing photographer, got some really cute ones! I'm sure that he'd kill me for posting his "non-post-processed" photos, but they were too cute and I just couldn't wait! I'll post his edited photos once he's finished with them. Ruby had such a blast at the pumpkin patch playing with the "punkins".

Here are a few of my favorites! Thanks Dad! You're the best Grandpa ever!

This one makes me laugh every time I see it!

I think that she was trying to flap her wings here.

Me, Bee, and beautiful Nana
