35 Weeks

Ruby turned 8 months old yesterday. She started army crawling this week, said "Dada," and reached out for Mommy. She's been getting over her cold slowly, and the last few nights of sleep have been better. This week Andy has vacation, so we're doing a little staycation (lack of funds to go somewhere). Except on Monday we got to take a little beach trip overnight to check out a camp for Awake (with a free place to stay). It was lots of fun, and the weather was pretty nice. Yesterday we cleaned out the garage, and today we're going to hike at Silver Falls.
 She started pulling herself up a little when she's in the laundry basket.
 She has turned into a drooly mouth breather with this cold.
 Story time with Daddy.
 Cuddling in her stroller.
 We had matching pigtails in our hair.
 Hers were tiny!
 At the coast she played her first racing game. She did pretty good, and got 28th place (out of 28).
Trying out the motorbike. 
 Happy on the beach.

 We stopped at the Rose Gardens on the way home.

34 Weeks

 I took some photos of Andy and Ruby this week. They turned out so sweet. They sure love each other a lot. Ruby caught a cold and the last two nights have been horrible for sleep. But she's still pretty happy during the day. She started scooting forward a little bit yesterday, so I'm sure crawling, or at least army crawling, is right around the corner. 
 She mostly sleeps on her side/tummy now.
 Playing with Sophie.
 At a wedding on Thursday. She's such a popular baby. :)
Swim time in the bath with Daddy... 
...resulted in a mohawk. 
 Her shark towel.
 Watching Daddy's new projector screen. Fascinating.
She can hold herself up for a little bit at the coffee table. 
And again. 
Her first real bath in the big bath tub. It was lots of fun, but harder on Mommy's back :)

33 Weeks

Ruby's really starting to talk a lot. She said "Dada" on Monday, which was Andy's birthday. She didn't know what she was saying, but she still said it. He was excited. She's just tons of fun. She loves to sing and squeal.
 Getting sleepy.
 Getting ready to crawl soon!
 Happy Birthday hat for Daddy.
Playing with her cars and trucks sheet in... her new crib!
 Beautiful crib built by my Dad.
First time eating finger food. I think one chunk made it to her mouth.
 Smiling with Mommy.
 Eating prunes.. they make quite a mess.
 Reading a library book.
 Helping Mommy with laundry.

32 Weeks

Ruby has really been on the move this week! She has been rolling all over the floor. Yesterday she was in the living room and rolled all the way to the kitchen. It's adorable. She has also started babbling a lot, and I constantly hear "babawawya" cute. She is getting up on her hands and knees and rocking too, so crawling probably isn't that far off. Ruby tried applesauce that I made last year and mangoes this week, and loved them both. She hasn't been liking the less sweet things like green beans, avocados, and carrots. Hopefully she'll start liking those again soon.
 This is the solution when you have to make 3 pies and have a rolling baby.
 Playing at Uncle Tony and Aunt Courtney's house.
 Cute jammies.
 Beautiful eyelashes.
 Playing while Mommy showers.
Up on her hands and knees!

Play, play, play
