Nine Months With Ruby!

Ruby has officially been out in the world longer than she was in my belly... Even though I feel like I was just pregnant with her last month. I can't believe how fast this year is going. Ruby went to her 9 month well check on Monday & her next one is the 1 year appointment *trying not to cry*.

This past month has probably been the busiest month for her. She learned how to crawl & say "mama" & "baba" (not dada yet.. Andrew just thinks "baba" means him ha!). Ruby has also been trying to pull up on stuff. She officially pulls up on me anytime we're sitting next to each other. And this morning, she pulled up on the bathtub all by herself! Speaking of bathtub, this past month we ditched the baby bathtub & stuck her in the "big girl tub." She loves splashing around in it & also loves swimming in the pool! Her little swimsuit from Target is super cute :)

Ruby attended her first VBS this month & during it, cut her first tooth! She now has the bottom two teeth & her doctor said the top two aren't far behind. Ruby helped me celebrate my birthday last week & it made me think of how different last year's birthday was compared to this one. I'll tell you one thing, I definitely was more comfortable this birthday compared to last year's haha! We also celebrated Andrew's first Father's Day a few weeks ago. I love those two so much!

At Ruby's well check appointment the other day, she was a little down in the percentile of height & weight so we're feeding her more & starting up on all the finger food things. A couple of weeks ago, Ruby gagged at the sight of Puffs, but now she likes them! And she's starting to like those yogurt melt things as well! She's obsessed with her straw sippy cup & her banana toothbrush. We always take that sippy cup with us when we go out to eat because it keeps her entertained ha!

Ruby is still in love with Murphy & the poor dog can't get a break from her very often.. Let's just say, he loves her nap time & bed time! But he does like to go in & "wake her up." After Ruby gets up from her nap, I usually call for him & he comes to push the door open & sticks his nose through one of her crib bars & they say "hello" to each other. It's seriously the cutest thing!

Happy 9 Months, Ruby! We love you more than words can say!


  1. I say "baba" counts, Dad! ;) Hazel says "MomMom" and lot more than she says "dad" or "dada", so any time she makes a noise that sounds close to dad, Cody claims it. lol.

    1. Haha! I'll have to tell Andrew that it counts! I mean, it's really close, right?! Just flip that "b" around & it's a "d" anyways! ;)
