Three cheers for the Davisons! Congratulations Melissa & Dylan! O.k... How is it that the pregnant girl is getting the most air in this picture? Something's wrong with that... And here's the sweetest girl of all!
Ruthie has been getting bigger by the day! I feel like I've doubled in size over the last 2 weeks. I went to my OB appointment on Thursday and the doctor said I have gained 6 pounds in 2 weeks (way more than you're supposed to!). I don't eat the best, but I know my eating hasn't drastically changed in the last 2 weeks, so I'm blaming it on the baby. :) I haven't gained much up until now, so I guess I had some room to spare anyway, right? These are kind of dorky pictures, but everyone has been asking for some - so here you go! Ahhh... what a nice moment when the car is silent because Noa fell asleep. It doesn't happen all that often, but I really enjoy when it does! A few bath action shots... Noa's new favorite thing is sitting in the cupboards and opening and closing the doors. Its actually kind of nice when I'm cleaning the kitchen or making dinner because she's totally occupied. But when I'm going for a pan I constantly find smashed up goldfish or cookies...so I guess the cupboard is now hers! :)
Wow! This has really been a busy season for us, but I actually have a few moments while the Chicks is down for her nap, so I thought I would post a few pictures (in lieu of my own nap - see how committed I am?). Grandma and Grandpa Roberts brought a wagon down for her birthday and she just loves it! Lately, we've spent a lot of time going around the block, waving at dogs we see, and basically thinking we're hot stuff in our wagon. Thumb is always a big part of our day. (Side note: Who could resist those blue eyes? I had to post this picture!) The other day I walked in the room and Noa was sitting in the basket that we keep her toys in. She can't quite get out on her own, but she loves to get in it (even though it is still full of toys) and play with whatever she can reach. And of course her hair's been getting longer, so we've been wearing a lot of bows like girly-girls! I don't think she really loves having the bows in, but I do - so they're here to stay. :)
I have so many pictures of her birthday, but here's a random sampling. I'm not sure she was totally into the whole thing - she was pretty overwhelmed by all the decorations and people - but, when she finally realized she could eat her cupcake (she didn't want to touch it at first) I think she was happy. :) We were so blessed by all the family and friends who came and celebrated her life with us, and also far away family who were so sweet to send tons of gifts and cards! Thank you!
