Little Miss Ruby, Little Miss WVU

We went for a walk today thinking it was going to rain anytime, though right now it looks really nice. Miss Ruby was especially cute today. Check the little blanket over her legs. I'm like her valet, haha. Would you like anything else Miss Ruby?

I think this one is just a great picture, especially for us WVU lovers. I wouldn't be surprised if Poppy makes this his desktop background.

Here she is getting a kiss from Banjo. She didn't seem to mind. On the contrary, she found it quite funny!

Yay Jumperoo!

Ruby loves the Jumperoo Aunt Babe got her! She goes to town in it. At first I was afraid that she was throwing herself around too much but her head wasn't thrashing around or anything and she seemed to be having a blast. She wears herself out in the thing, but that's just gravy.

Four Months Old!

I can't believe our baby is four months old! She's changing every day. She can grab toys and play with them now. She has discovered her feet. She yells and talks and fights sleep. She loves to pet Felix and Felix loves it too! She reaches up and grabs the toys swinging from the Baby Einstein- it seems like only yesterday she didn't even act like she could see them. She laughs and smiles 98% of the time. She now weighs about 15.5 lbs. and we love every ounce of her to pieces!

Cutie Pie!

Look at the little gown and bunny slippers. Too cute! Wow, Ruby is napping less and less and if she gets woken up you will pay later! Gees little girl, enjoy the sleep while you can!

Happy, or Unhappy, Valentines

See this happy face? This was not the face that was on last night. I don't know what the problem was but Ruby was not at all herself. She wasn't hurting or anything like that. She was tired I think and fighting sleep. She cried and yelled for at least an hour before she finally gave into sleep.

Noel came home from work and brought us each a card and a few gifts- the best being a promised massage. Then I prepared the wings I promised Noel. As soon as we sat down to watch a movie and eat Ruby started. She could not be consoled. That is not like her. We think maybe she wanted to make sure the evening was all about her! haha! Anyway, our first Valentines Day with Ruby was a bust.

Yes! Power!

We're back in action. My parents brought us a generator only for the power to come back on an hour later. Murphy's Law!

Taking a Stroll

Since it was a beautiful day we decided to get outside. Ruby had a great time but she really acts like the sunlight kills her eyes. I finally got her to look up for a good pic.

Cold Again!

It's 0 degrees out and our house is cold again. Heater's not broken, just can't handle this size of a house and this cold of weather. Ruby doesn't even act like she notices. Noel and I tried to cuddle with her under the covers but she wanted out in the cold to be propped up and look around! Who knows, maybe she'll love the cold and snow and be a skier or bobsledder or something like that! So this is the uniform for the day. Oh yeah, we have a space heater and with that aimed right at us, it's plenty warm. Poppy will just have to suffer when he gets home this evening! Ha! This is Ruby in her swing while I was slicing up a loaf of bread in order to make a sandwich for Poppy's lunch.

P.S. This time we will tough it out instead of paying some doofus $130 to come out and try to sell me another unit!

Such a Pretty Face

Last night I was in the worst mood. I don't really know why. Maybe it's hormones. Maybe it's dieting. All I know is that my husband was very brave (and I might say stupid) to start picking on me. But when he showed me this picture he took I could not stop laughing because it showed exactly how I imagine I was acting. Not often do you see adults making actual frowns.

Sweet Angel

Ruby received this little hat before she was born. I think it is the most precious bonnet ever. It's definitely hand made and deserves a spot in a hope chest-if we had one :)
