Just so we can remember her at this age as best we can, I compiled a list all about Ruby. If she could talk, this is what she'd say..... (I think)
*Ruby can pull herself to standing with support, and is slowly starting to drop one hand and just hold on by one. Walking will be soon!
*Ruby loves to make messes! Her favorite cupboard is the one full of tupperware!
*Ruby loves to play in the bathroom! Working on teaching the kids to keep the door closed!
*Ruby's first word was 'Da-Da'. She also says 'Uh-Nnnnn' (Uh-oh), 'Ma-Ma', 'Nie-Nie' (night-night & blankie), and 'Iiie' (Hi).
*Ruby signals she is hungry by smacking her lips together with an adorable sound, or 'Mmmmmmm'.
*Ruby puts her hand to her ear and says 'Iiie' whenever she hears a phone ring.
*Ruby's favorite thing to play with is anything she's not supposed to have.
*Ruby loves to wear a string of orange Mardi Gras beads. She grabs it out of the toy basket every morning and gets mad whenever someone tries to take it off!
*Ruby is a friendly little girl. Although, when she's tired she prefers Mommy or Daddy, when well-rested she is happy to be held and played with by pretty much anyone!
*Ruby loves her pink blankie- (the one she calls her Nie-Nie)
*Ruby's favorite time of day is when Daddy walks through the door.
*Ruby is very good at waving. She waves hi and bye to everyone.
*Ruby blows kisses. She puts her fist in her mouth, and gives this 'Muah' sound as she pulls her fist out!
*Ruby loves cheese, mashed potatoes, and yogurt melts.
*Ruby loves to go for bike rides in the Burley.
*Ruby loves to play in the water and splash on the shore at the lake.
*Ruby loves to dance. Always. Whenever she hears music or someone sings to her she has this adorable little shimmy where she shakes side-to-side.
*Ruby knows what things are no-no. Hard to not confuse this with her dance!
*Ruby still loves to nurse from Mommy. Our goal was a year, and we are still going strong!
*Ruby loves her nuk. Just when it's time to go to bed, though, so we are happy with that.
*Ruby is an easy one to lay down. A little nursing, and she lays right down with her blankie.
*Ruby goes to bed at 7 p.m., and usually sleeps until at least 7 a.m.!
*Ruby loves our puppy, Shelbie and our chickens.
*Ruby loves to give hugs....she leans her head in whenever she wants one, and it's pretty much to anyone she sees.
*Ruby loves babies, and ALWAYS greets them with a hug!
*Ruby weighed 21 lbs, 6 oz at her one year appointment. This put her in the 75%.
*Ruby was 28. 3/4" long at her one year appointment. This put her in the 50%.
*Ruby does 'So Big' and claps her hands. When she's really excited and is getting reaction from people she does all of her tricks at once!
*Ruby is our happy, content, sweet little girl...We have truly been blessed with her, and are so glad she is ours!
