It's been a very busy week! This is Ruby's 23 month photo which I took at my parents' house the day after Christmas. I can't believe it's only one month until her 2nd birthday. She's so fun. It's always exciting to hear what she has to say. She can count to 10 really well, and the letters she knows are "a, b, c, d, r, u, y, x." But she only knows how to say them, and doesn't recognize them yet. She can sing most of Jesus Loves Me and several other songs. This morning she was feeding my mom's cat and said, "Come ewe, Midnight." She really knows what's going on and is very concerned with whose is whose. She always tells us whose plate belongs to whom, chair, spot on the couch, water, etc.
She loves doing puzzles and is really good at them.
Shopping for some fabric for a pillow case.
On Friday night Ruby woke up throwing up, and then threw up every 1.5-2 hours the rest of the night, so 4 times total. It was so sad. The last time I went in there, she said, "Oh no" before she threw up. :( But she got through it, and this is her eating breakfast on Saturday. She felt fine aside from a little cold after that. Andy and I would both get up, and he would change the sheets, then rock her, and I would change her jambes, then start another load of laundry. We were pretty tired on Saturday, but thankfully we didn't have anything planned.

She loves pulling her rocking chair up to the Christmas tree and looking at the ornaments.
She climbed up all by herself...
