9 months

ImageRuby had her 9 month checkup and she has gained 3 pounds and 1.5 inches since her 6 month checkup. It still amazes me what a difference a couple of months makes, heck even a couple of weeks.  I swear that overnight she went from rolling over to crawling and pulling up on everything in sight.  Although the best skill is her being able to say momma and dadda.  Nothing melts your heart more than seeing that little monkey crawling towards you hollering momma.  Even if I am trying to make dinner or some other task that needs to be done.  Now if I only we could put sleeping through the night on the list I would be a truly happy momma.  We had one night so I know it is possible.

ImageThis week begins my new schedule at work and I am excited that I will have three day weekends.  I have lofty thoughts of getting out of town more often and yet getting more done around the house.  We will see which one wins out.  Top on the list is getting the basement ready for football season.  It will be a work in progress, but it is worth it for Dan to have his mancave.
Speaking of Dan, I am sure that I have mentioned that I think he is the bee’s knees before in my blog, but I have to take a moment and say it again.  He has started reading to Ruby before she goes to bed and I love hearing them spend time together.  She does spend more time trying to eat the books then listening to the stories, but I am sure it won’t be long before she is asking for more.  I know that being a mom has made me mushy, but it melts my heart to see how much they love each other.
