It’s been a busy fall, which is why I missed a post (or two). However, our little Roo is now 6 months old. SIX MONTHS OLD! She is such a big girl.
What has Ruby accomplished in the past few months? Quite a few things actually.
She loves to laugh and smile. She can fully enjoy most of her toys and make them rattle and move and roll. Ruby doesn’t quite crawl yet, but she finds ways to get from one place to another by kicking and rolling herself around.
She also is now eating solids. Her first taste of food was rice then oatmeal. Her first non-grain was peas. Then she had carrots, pears, butternut squash, bananas, sweet potatoes, and apples. She loves them all! It took some time since I think she had to get used to the textures of them all. Her favorites have been peas and bananas. She has been loving her apples though.
Ruby had her first visit to the pumpkin patch! We all had so much fun! It was great to sit her in the sea of pumpkins and see her eyes light up with all the new things around her.
Her latest stats from the doctor’s office:
Weight: 15.8 lbs
Height: 26.25 in
Ruby is in the middle on the weight curve, pretty tall, and supposedly has a GIANT head. She is on track with all her milestones. Doctor said she is very strong since she can already sit up on her own for a long period of time. Her legs are also strong…probably from all the bouncing she does in her jumperoo.
Mom and dad are doing well too. It hasn’t been easy, nor has it gotten easier. However, we just have to take one look at her and we know it is all worth it. We’re looking forward to celebrating the holidays with Miss Ruby. That will be the next blog entry!
