...and she's up!

Around the middle of November, Ruby started climbing up to her knees.

Then she became more brave and used us to climb her way to her feet.

Pretty soon, she was pulling up on things that were her height or shorter.

Then today, my little 8 1/2 month old baby girl pulled up on the sofa.

Watch out world. Ruby Ellen is standing!

Welcome to Winter!

This morning when I got up I noticed that it seemed brighter than usual outside. I peeked through the blinds and saw a beautiful blanket of SNOW. What? I had no idea it was supposed to snow. It was 70 degrees just the other day.

I went into Zoey's room to wake her up and told her I had a surprise. We all (Ruby, too) got bundled up and I had Zoey close her eyes while I opened the garage door. She was so excited!
At first she wouldn't walk in the snow. But after I told her she could walk, lay down, roll, etc., she loosened up and had a blast!
On her own, she laid down and made a snow angel. I don't even know how she knew how to do that, but she did.
By this time, she was pretty wet and chilly so we stomped the snow off our boots and headed inside for breakfast. I never got any shots of Ruby since I was holding her but she was rather unimpressed with her first peek at snow.
