1 Month!

These monthly updates are for my own future reference/perusal/crying over when my baby is all grown up.

Right now Ruby loves: looking at our faces, her binky, the SwaddleMe that her aunt Katy gave us, being in her carseat, going on walks, and spitting up all over us a couple times a day.  She has a darling smile and is growing really fast--probably because this girl loves to eat--all the time. Kyle calls her "Ruby" and "girl".  I always call her "girlfriend." I don't know how that happened, but it feels the most natural.  She sleeps pretty well most nights, but not enough for Kyle and me to feel like we're getting enough sleep.

Kyle and I are...well, tired.  But we're not zombies at least.  Definitely still in the adjustment phase, but we have fun going on walks and playing with Ruby.  Kyle sings her some pretty great songs (his poop version of "Under Pressure" is almost as good as the original).  I stick to normal lullabies like *NSYNC and Frank Sinatra.  Kyle thought he would have a really hard time changing diapers, but is completely over the grossness--for which I am very grateful.  Kyle is super helpful--he gets up with me in the night, and does a huge chunk of the work once he gets home from being a microbiologist.  I definitely feel like taking care of Ruby is a team effort, not just MY job.

We love Ruby so freaking much it's ridiculous.  It's great to be a little family.

Ignore the fact that she looks like a boy in these pictures.  Usually we have her in something girlier.


Can't you tell she REALLY wanted to give me a hug?


You don't make this move unless you be DANCIN'



And now, why I love her funny face:





 

She cracks me up.

She's SO big! I can't believe how much she is looking like a big girl and not a newborn any more. I am dying to hold her again. Thanks for SO many pictures.

She really has grown up since I saw her. I love her cute faces-make sure you take pics with the real camera too-I don't want you to regret only having phone pics!

She's getting so big so fast! Oh, it goes too fast!

So, I'm looking at your blog for the umpteenth time today and was struck how much Ruby looks like Kyle right now! At these in those pics I really see it...

So she likes Kyle's "poop" version of "Under Pressure"? I'm sorry but I'm cracking up over the implications this grammer mishap has.

.. and she is way cute! Its amazing how much they change in so little time. I was reminiscing over Sydney's pictures just this afternoon thinking that exact thing.

Second to last picture is my favorite! She looks like an awesome baby. I wish I were there to hear Kyle's Under Poop song... I can only imagine it's grandeur.

She is SO beautiful! And I want to hear Kyle's song too!
