It's a boy!

See if you can figure out what's what in this picture. The arrow helps.

This year I vow to step it up on the blog posts. Happy new year!

Let's Go Mountaineers!

I have been wanting to get Ruby a WVU cheerleader outfit for a long time now. I finally found one and she looks as cute as a button in it!

She is contemplating life.

Pointed toe, posing.

YAY! Mountaineers!

YAY Mountaineers, look at my mullet!!

One Year Old!

Ruby turned one on October 19th. We had a party for her on the 18th. The party went well and Ruby was as cute as ever! She went crazy when we sang Happy Birthday to her!

Party in an old classroom at WSS Junior High. The room looks a lot better than it did back then!
Me and Roo. That's the hat I made for her. She looks thrilled.

This is the cake I made for her. I was going to use fondant but just went with plain buttercream instead. I made a practice cake with fondant and no one liked the taste of it, even though I flavored it with vanilla.

Ruby's personalized M&Ms. They were the favors.

Some other kids at the party!

Another party shot.

Time to babyproof!

The other day Ruby was trying to get in the kitchen for the first time. So I mopped the floor and let her in. It's amazing how quick a 10 month old can figure out cabinets and drawers. Time to babyproof!

10 months old!

I can't believe our little baby is already 10 months old. I remember crying when she was a week old because the time went by so fast. My goodness, it hasn't gotten any slower.
She is now pulling herself up on everything and walking while holding on. It's up, down, up, down.... She stands a little by herself unsupported too.

This is her victory stance. She puts her arms over her head and we yell "Victory" and she laughs and laughs. She also does it when we yell "Victory;" thus, she is able to recognize a word and do the corresponding action. She even mimics us when we don't say anything but put our hands in a V over our heads. These actions only prove that, as I suspected, she is a genius.
How could we ever say no to this face?

Check out those two bottom teeth. They first broke through July 4.

Sweet as sugar, but starting to throw some fits. haha!

Her hair is really growing longer and getting thicker!



Future WVU cheerleader in the making right here. For those of you who did not cheer, this is how cheerleaders sit.

Mom, enough pictures!


The thinker, or maybe the stinker!

Check out the top teeth- four of 'em.

VICTORY! This will come in handy during football season!

State Fair

We went to the State Fair on Sunday morning to see what we could see and more importantly sample the FOOD! The best steak sandwich in the world comes from the fair! My mom would argue that the best cinnamon rolls and elephant ears also come from the fair. I know the best donuts come from the fair!

This picture was taken at the Attorney General booth. The bear was on tranquilizers.

Funny Girl!

Looking like a fashion model!
Food all over your clothes! Happy as a clam!

When not pulling everything out of the basket, we use it for teething!

New Turd Box Location!

I built this and put it on the porch at the front end of our house where no one hardly ever goes. I was so sick of having the litter boxes in the house but I didn't want to put my kitties outside. It's really working out well. Also, I built a cat window with a little cat door. In this picture you can see a cat coming out of the window, well now there is a little ledge on each side and they come and go through a cat door. The cats love it and go out to potty and hang out. Did I mention I built this? I'm pretty proud of myself.
