some Ruby things.

RUBY is freaking CUTE.  Her newest obsession is Shaun the Sheep, which is awesome for me, because I love that show.  I love when she asks for "sheep show."  We went to the doctor yesterday for her 2 year checkup.  Awesomely, she didn't have to get any shots.  She's 26 lbs., putting her in the 50something percentile.  And it turns out she's a shrimp--just in the 34th percentile.  Kyle and I aren't short so that surprised me.


Ruby loves our Halloween decorations.  She loves the rats on the wall and Kyle's carved skull especially.  She is a happy girl--and nothing makes ME happier than seeing her smiling contentedly.  She is fond of telling me that she's happy, which I love.  Who doesn't want to hear "I happy, Momma!" from her kid?


She has started claiming me as hers--and it is SO CUTE.  "Where's my mommy?" "I want my mommy" etc.--it just kills me.  It's so much sadder though when she misses "her daddy" when he's at work.  Being able to verbalize it makes it more real to me.  She is still obsessed with Kyle and always wants him around. Poor guy, it's hard for him to leave her to go to work.  When he gets home she RUNS down the hall and throws herself into his arms.  That's gotta feel good.


I think the combination of her new haircut and the fact that she's 2 makes her seem so much older.  She is a BIG GIRL now.  It's sad but fun.  She can say and do basically anything, and has her own strong opinions and desires.  Heaven help me if she wants to hang out with Landon and I don't let her.  She has a new way of asking me things, and offering me things.  I can't explain it, but it is The Cutest Thing Ever.  Her tone of voice and inquisitive look defy description.  She is really generous and always offers me some of her food, or toys, or offers to do something for me (take off my shoes, put stuff in the trash, turn on the light, close the door) and it's adorable.  She kind of sounds like Chip from Beauty and the Beast.
