Happy New Year + Life Lately!

Where has the time gone? Here I am again, slacking in the blogging world.. Wishing I was writing more. Most mamas out there know that time is tough. I feel like I'm constantly feeding, changing, soothing or playing with Ruby. In my "free time" I try to get caught up on the housework that is clearly falling behind as one could tell by looking at the pile of dishes in my sink or the clean laundry that I need to fold & put away. But I read this great article last night & told myself that it's okay that all of that stuff is just sitting there, because time with Ruby is short & I'm going to enjoy her little coos & giggles while I can. Even right now when I felt like I had a minute to write, I can hear her in her crib "talking" & it makes me want to go in there & swoop her up.

So since it's been forever since I've blogged, I figured I'd play "catch up" with you all!

Ruby turned two months old on December 5th. Tomorrow she'll be 3 months old.. SO crazy!

She's enjoying learning how to sit up & she rarely likes to be held like a baby anymore (which makes this mama just a little sad).

She also enjoyed her first Oklahoma snow which consisted of some flakes that didn't stick to the ground at all, but that's ok!

On December 18th, we dedicated Ruby to the Lord. We are so thankful that God entrusted us to be her parents & we are eagerly praying for the day that she realizes she's a sinner in need of a perfect Savior & trusts in Jesus Christ who is the only One who can do that. We're praying that we will show Ruby the love of Christ & raise her in a stable, Christian home!

Ruby had a great first Christmas! She even attempted (with the help of Mommy & Daddy) to open her own presents. Maybe next year she'll do it all by herself!

She's starting to learn how to hold stuff! She especially likes her rattle that we gave her for Christmas!

And then I just had to end on this stinking adorable picture of Ruby & Murphy today because who doesn't love pictures of babies & dogs?! I think they're going to be best friends!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful 2017 & keep following this little blog of mine! :)
