Ruby Ellen @ 7 months

Our little Ruby Ellen is already 7 months old. How time flies! Zoey and I took her to her doctor's appointment on Wednesday for her check-up. She did great. Her tear ducts are still a bit clogged but we're hoping they clear up in the next 2 months. Out doctor was a tiny bit concerned that she hasn't doubled her birth weight (8lbs, 8oz), yet, but since she looks like a little chunk, he wasn't very worried. Although Zoey was a super-duper big sister during the visit, singing to Ruby and holding her hand, she completely lost it every time Ruby started crying. At one point I had Ruby on one shoulder and Zoey on the other...both in tears. So sweet. Ruby was exhausted the rest of the day and took extra long naps and she was in a great mood for our mini photo shoot. OK, people-out-there-who-think-Ruby-looks-exactly-like-Zoey. What do you think now?
Ruby's stats:
16lbs, 9.6oz (45%)
27 3/4in (90%)
three shots in those cute thighs
sweet sisters
"Peace Out"

our little ballerina

This morning Zoey and I were looking through her dress-up box trying to decide what she's going to be for Halloween. She had lots of fun trying on all sorts of costumes and looking at herself in the mirror...or "window" as she calls it. It wasn't until she put on her leotard that she asked me if I would "picture" her. So, we had a little photo shoot and I took this video clip.

By the way, we were reading the Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat the other day and I asked Zoey what she wanted to be for Halloween and she said, "I want to be a princess or a big birthday cake." Two very good choices, sweetheart.

daily pre-nap time conversation

Mama: "Zoey, it's time to put on your pull-up for nap time."
Zoey: "Oh-tay. I can stay dry?"
Mama: "Yes, try very hard to stay dry at nap time."
Zoey: "Oh-tay...pause...I might go pee-pee."
Mama: "Well, you just went potty so you should do just fine. Try really hard not to go pee-pee in your pull-up."
Zoey: "Oh-tay, mommy. I try...pause...But I might go pee-pee."

When she actually sleeps during nap time, she wakes up dry. It's when she plays that I think she gets bored and goes potty. We keep telling her that when she turns 3, she will nap in her panties. I might be in for some pretty interesting afternoons with lots of laundry.
