Ruby had her 6th month appointment today and she is growing like a weed!  She's 27 inches long and weighed in at 15 pounds 12 oz.  She's in the 80th percentile for her height!  I think she's going to be tall just like her daddy!

SUN :)

I love love love this's amazing.  Ruby and I had such a great day.  Unfortunately daddy had to work,but us girls (Grams included) spent the afternoon walking around downtown Corvallis...we all need some retail therapy every now and then.  Then we had a Ruby photo shoot.  It was so fun to take pictures of her in her cute little outfits.  We finished the evening with a yummy BBQ.  Auntie Linda is such a great hostess!  :)  We are very blessed to have all of you in our lives.

The next Motzart

Ruby is growing so much. She has outgrown many of her infant toys (she's pretty mature for her age). So Papa J and Grams bought her a "big girl" toy. You know, the ones that say for 6+ months. She loves her new piano. I'm hoping she will be a child prodigy and learn to play at a young age and make us millions....j/k :)

This is how a birthday girl celebrates a 1/2 birthday...she partied hard!  Happy birthday sweet tootie...we love you very much.  You're growing up way too fast.  Slow down a bit...ok?

Swim Lessons

Ruby started her swim lessons tonight!  She really liked the water.  I hope she learns to swim fast!  Here's a video of her first "dunk"!
