Saturday Quotes and Pics

9 Feb

We had a nice, lazy Saturday today. Matty let me sleep in, which was heavenly. Later on we went on a little walk to the park and to pick up a few things at the store. Ruby said some cute stuff today. This morning I told her I wanted to check her diaper and she sighed and said “all right.” At supper she dropped some food on her (naken) chest and said “mess!” and then insisted I clean her up. Lately she has been SO sweet at bedtime. She nurses for a few minutes and then when I put her in her crib she snuggles in and tells me “night” and “sweet dreams.” We just love our Ruby.

Ruby loves babies, especially my friend Rachel’s baby Silas. I can’t say I blame her–he is an adorable little boy who sweetly tolerates Ruby’s demonstrations of affection. Today I was holding Silas and Ruby stretched out her arms to me and said “want it Mommy!” I had her sit down and did a little photo shoot. I love both of their facial expressions.


This is Ruby demonstrating how to be “suave con el bebe” (gentle with the baby):


This one is my favorite:


No want go store!

Ruby did NOT want to go to the store with me this morning, so she passively resisted me on the stairs and loudly voiced her opposition. I managed to convince her that we would have fun and she behaved really well. I think all of the samples at Costco helped!

Ruby has been loving all of the snow showers we have been having–too bad we haven’t had enough to make a snowman!

Ruby’s speech has really taken off in the past month or so.  My favorite Ruby word is “naken” for naked, which is her favorite way to be.  She also loves to point out when “Mommy naken” or “Daddy naken.”  She has also been saying full sentences, albeit short ones.  Today I was watching a cooking show and she climbed up in my lap and told me “Ruby no like it.  Mommy change channel please.  Watch Mickey Mouse.”  Image

Ruby also loves to eat whole apples, although she bites off the peels and then spits them out.  She is very adamant about getting the whole apple though–when she asks for one she will say “Ruby want apple please.  Mommy no cut no peel.”  Too cute!  Please ignore the huge stain on her cute elephant shirt in this picture:Image
