2 months

Ruby is no longer a teeny little newborn.

She weighs 10 lbs 15 oz, which is in the 51st percentile.
She is 24 inches long, which is in the 95th percentile. (Tall and skinny!)

She doesn't have the newborn cry anymore--she sounds like an infant.  She sucks on her fist more than her binky. She sleeps through the night more often than not, which we really appreciate.  She smiles at us all the time, which continues to be my favorite part of life!  And she has finally started to play with toys!  It is really cute. Her favorite so far (probably just the easiest) is a monkey that chimes when you hit it.  We're teaching her all about how great it is to hit things, apparently.  She also loves watching tv.  (We're great parents, huh?) So far she has shown the most interest in Zac Efron.  That's our girl!

Ruby's Aunt Katy is staying with us for about 3 weeks.  This means All Fun, All The Time for little Ruby.  Instead of a boring mom who has to put her down while she does the dishes and laundry, she gets to be held and play with a way more fun aunt.  It's also fun for me!

Ruby is just getting funnier and cuter every day.  I can't imagine how awesome she is going to be when she's 3 months...and then 4 months...etc.

So cute! She is looking so big. LOVE the Ashley onsie and pic, love that first shot. And who doesn't love Zac Efron? Although somehow he does especially well with the girls under 5:)

Becca! When can we have you over for dinner? Can Katy come too? Let's talk about dates if you still have openings on your holiday social calendar. :)
