23 May

I made a new friend today. At the dog park. The whole thing was delightfully unexpected and made me feel like I was five years old again, in the best way possible.

We also had our friends Mike and Jen over for dinner, which was fun and full of great conversation.

Here is Ruby at our favorite time of day, waiting for Daddy to come home.

Amazing

22 May

We had a lovely dinner with Elise in Baltimore tonight. On our way home we were listening to the radio and “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars came on. This song always makes me cry now because the lyrics are just perfect for our sweet Ruby:
When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are

And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

Our sweet baby goes to bed so easily now, and finally pretty much sleeps through the night. This is her waving “bye bye” to me tonight.

Even though it is Sunday Ruby was still hard at work on the computer. She got to relax with Daddy too, and even shared her goldfish crackers.

Alexandria finally *really* feels like home–we hosted our first (very small) dinner party.

Earlier today Ruby had a great time eating a Popsicle and playing in the sprinkler. She also climbed up onto Cash’s new favorite spot, looking out the window.

Matty had a successful first week at work and we are all ready for the weekend! Ruby and I got way too used to having him around.

Here’s our princess, trying to play with her sleeping doggy and rocking out two different shoes.

Joined the YMCA today–it’s time to get back in shape! I might actually try Zumba tomorrow morning. Ruby had a great time wandering around meeting everyone and especially enjoyed playing with Tio David while I filled out paperwork.

After the Y we went grocery shopping. Ruby was so tired she slept in Tio’s arms.
