I can't believe our little baby is 1! Where did the time go... She has brought so much joy and love into our home and we our extremely grateful for her. Ruby is the sweetest and happiest baby in the world. She is absolutely perfect, I'm not kidding, we often joke that she has set a really high bar for her siblings.
At her 12 month appt. she weighed in at 23.9oz and 29 inches. She can stand by herself but once she realizes what she is doing she drops to the ground. She LOVES being outside and LOVES the beach. She still loves bath time or playing with any water for that matter. She loves brushing her teeth and getting into drawers and pulling everything out. She loves going to the park and climbing up the slide and swinging. She says momma, dadda and uh oh. She always wakes up happy and when you go in and get her she gets so excited and jumps up and down and shakes her crib. She loves playing with other kids and follows them all around. She can click her tongue and smack her lips. She loves to put my hand over her mouth and make her voice shake. She also will grab my hands to play patty cake but instead of me clapping her hands she has to clap mine. She is a funny little girl and I love her so much! Happy 1st Birthday Ruby!
When we finally got around to celebrating her bday we decided to just keep it really simple. My friend Lindsay and I made homemade strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting(recipe curtesy of Sprinkles cupcakes). The frosting my friends was to die for, it tasted just like a strawberry milkshake. We celebrated with a few friends with hotdogs and cupcakes and it was fabulous.
