The holiday weekend kicked off with a performance by my team on Friday night at a girls home game. Basketball performances are always fun. We're not getting judged so there is little to no stress, and its great practice for competitions. Saturday morning I was up at 4:45am to get ready for a big dance competition in Portland. I was so anxious/nervous. After a long long day of dancing, make-up, hair spray, and stinky feet my team was awarded a huge 1st place trophy (it was like 2 1/2 feet tall). It was a great feeling....It's such a rewarding experience to coach a team to s victory. I think the feeling is even better than the feeling I felt when I won as a dancer. We'll see how state plays out, that is were we will see the toughest competition. I got home from the competition around 1am on Sunday morning and was up again by 8am to head back to the big city to celebrate my little cousins 1st birthday. Here's some pics of the big party!!

I had to put this video up of Jess, well sneak it on here. This is the boxing match of professional football player vs. stay at home mom. I think Jess lost but she does pack a mean uppercut. The video doesn't do them justice.

So Ruby had her 4 month healthy baby check-up and she weighs.....13 pounds 9 ounces!!! So so big! But in her defense she is 25 inches long! Do you think she's going to be one of those girls that's taller than all the boys?

Our little lady is 4 months old! I know, I know crazy. She is so much fun. As her dad said "she's becoming more human" I think he means she is more interactive now! She loves to talk, smile and laugh. We are so blessed to have such a happy baby.
She's learning cool new things everyday. Just yesterday she found her toes :) She likes to pull them up and put them in her mouth, so cute. She also grabs onto everything. She's so strong, it really surprises me. She also likes to spit, I think she likes being wet 24/7! Ruby also loves to watch our dogs play she gets so excited when they're in the house!! Oh and kicking, apparently it's really fun to her. She kicks all the time, it makes diaper changing really challenging... I could go on but Casey will bust me for bragging so I'll stop.
Her 4 month check-up is next week so I'll let you know how much she weighs...I'm guessing 13lbs...
