Ruby is 16 months! Baby girl is growing up fast.
She has become super affectionate. Loves to give hugs and kisses. She loves books, one in particular that has buttons on the side. It's a baby einstein book and she always picks it out. It also has some lift-the-flaps that make her giggle as though she were seeing what was underneath for the very first time. Her new favorite thing to say is "no no no". She sounds like she has a French accent and she wags her finger. I know I shouldn't encourage her but it's so darn cute, I can't help but chuckle.
She continues to climb. She can now get into her own booster seat at the table. Scary. She doesn't seem to fear anything, which scares the crap out of me. She would walk right off of a ledge without even looking down. We really have to keep an eye out with this one. She is a determined and head strong girl. We've been told a few times that we are going to have our hands full with her - we already do!! She is also very physically strong. And a tough cookie. She bumps her head and falls all the time and rarely cries. She is on the verge of throwing temper tantrums and I really believe that she's going to make us realize that Kaneu's tantrums were a walk in the park. She *loves* to eat and loves to snack. If anyone is eating anything at anytime you'd better be prepared to share. Her newest favorite treat: smoothies. She freaks over them.
She is picking up new words and signs everyday. In Florida we taught her the sing for fish, well last week at the aquarium she saw fish and remembered the sign. Little miss smarty pants.
dada (she says daDA!!)
Unfortunately she is sick again. Back to the doc today who confirmed and put her back on antibiotics. Poor baby - and poor me. She's shared her germs and now I'm feeling a sinus infection coming on. boo.
