We had a super busy week. From putting on a friend's baby shower to a big Valentine's Day party to a crazy catch up Sunday, this week was chaotic. But I think most things are finally done. Whew. Our busyness probably won't reflect in my pictures because I didn't snap them at busy moments. :) It was a good week, but I know we're both exhausted and tired of doing everything. Hopefully this weekend will slow down a little bit as Andy gears toward Winter Freeze next weekend.
Ruby's doing well. Her cough is totally gone, and her ears are much better. There's still a little fluid in one of them, but at least it's better than it was. I'm glad she didn't have to do antibiotics. I'm going to try to stay away from those as much as possible and let her body heal itself. She's getting to be such a big girl. I can't wait to see her become a big sister in just a few short months. She definitely knows how to push our buttons though. It seems like every day at about 4pm she has a naughty phase (right when I'm trying to make dinner). It's hard, but I know consistently reinforcing boundaries is a good thing. She'll get it eventually.
The picture above is from a down moment we had watching the Olympics. She likes to hold the controller.
Coloring with no pants!
She likes helping run the Tiki Hut. We like to go to youth group sometimes on Thursdays and Sundays just to visit.
Putting heart stickers on the back window on Valentine's Day.
Our cute little Valentine.
Daddy got her this flower for Valentine's Day. So cute.
She loves getting her purse on and her stroller and "going to work" or "going to Grandma's house."
The flowers Andy got me for Valentine's Day. Absolutely gorgeous.
We ate lunch and dinner at church on Sunday, and Andy was there the whole entire day. It was a little crazy.
On Monday Grandma Patty came and got Ruby for the day. Andy and I had a lovely time going out to brunch and getting some things done around our house. Then we went up to get her for dinner. She likes reading the menu.
I helped watch kids on Tuesday for women's small groups. Ruby wanted to give the dolly two drinks.
Playing with her fruit/veggies from Aunt Cindy. She's getting so big!
We went on a coffee date after we saw the midwife yesterday.
Ruby loves her steamers. Even though it's just hot milk.
She was actually helpful yesterday and stirred the pot pie filling for me. What a big girl.
She does this when she's hungry. :)
Laying on the couch with Mommy this morning.
And then she took a few selfies.
Reading new books we got from the library.
