Hooray for Saturday!

25 Feb

We had a lovely little Saturday. I got to wake up next to my cuddly baby, then I made her a delicious breakfast of eggs, bacon, cheese and whole wheat bread. Later on we met some friends at Matty’s favorite place in the world, Stone Brewery.

Friday with Ruby

24 Feb

I pulled my back last night and spent a lot of time on the heating pad in bed, but I did get to spend most of the day with Ruby. She woke up happy, played with her best friend, and took a lovely nap in my arms.

Mmmm juice

23 Feb

How did my itty bitty baby grow up so fast? She looked so grown up today toddling around drinking juice from a pouch.

I love this baby. She is so curious about everything around her, including her diaper.

Prodigal Daughter by Pearl and the Beard

22 Feb

 

This is a sweet little video made by the writer of one of my favorite blogs, http://www.gregariouspeach.com/.  Georgia is a mom from Brisbane, Australia (home of my beloved Aussies, Matt and Rachel Jensen), and is obviously about as smitten with her daughter as I am of mine.  Her blog is also where I got the idea to “document delight” by posting Ruby pictures every day.  I jumped on the bandwagon a tad late (she is doing a 366 project, meant to document every day of this year), and my pictures are not nearly so lovely, but I plan on improving my photography skills once we get settled back east.

I had never heard of this band but love their folksy style and adore this song.

When I came home from work today Ruby had been sleeping peacefully in Elise’s arms for an hour. Elise handed her over to me and she slept for another two hours! It was so lovely to spend the afternoon with my baby sweetly sleeping in my arms.

Ruby spent about 20 minutes “reading” her book this morning. She looked so grown up.
