Six Months With Ruby!

Not sure how, but Ruby is 6 months old today! It's hard to believe that half a year ago, I held her in my arms for the first time. I literally feel like I just had her last month, but at the same time, I can't remember what my life was like before she was here. Ruby is the happiest baby I've ever seen. Sure, she cries & screams sometimes, but she smiles SO much! She is such a joy & will instantly make your day better, I promise.

Ruby finally mastered rolling from back to tummy last week so now she's super mobile. I can leave her in one spot, turn my back for a minute & she's somewhere completely different. We started baby-proofing some of the house already & we're hoping to finish off that task this weekend. She is super close to sitting up on her own. She can do it for a few seconds on her own with me ready to catch her. Ruby loves to read, sing & "pet" Murphy. She also loves to put anything & everything in her mouth, especially my hair ha. She is doing good at eating baby food-- she's tried cereal, peas, green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes, pears & then apples for the first time today! Right now, she's not a huge fan of fruit (which I really don't like fruit at all, I prefer veggies) but obviously, that could change.

Ruby went to her 6 month check up on Monday & she's in the 50th percentile again in height, weight & head! That same night, she slept in her own room for the first time. Those of you who follow me on social media may have saw that I was a little bit of a wreck that night. As I was feeding her before bed & rocking her, I just cried. Not because I was scared to leave her in her room (she's already been taking naps in there), but because somehow this sweet little 7 pounds & 13 ounces baby grew to be 15 pound & 10 ounces in the blink of an eye. 

This baby girl is the sweetest. 

Happy 6 months, Ruby June! We love you so much!
