First birthdays are hard on me. I can’t believe how quickly it flies by! The days are so long sometimes, but the years are so short!
Anyhow, Miss Ruby is now ONE.
This year I gave a hair flip to tradition and decided to have a birthday party at our house instead of going to Izzy’s Pizza. Because I just didn’t feel like it. Her party was also the day AFTER her birthday. Ooooo.
And you know what? It was awesome.
Ruby got to run around our living room being held by various family members, she got to take her time with her cake and really enjoy it. She got to sit on the floor with me and open her presents. Or rather, sit in the boxes, because kids and cats are pretty alike when they are one.
I seriously cannot believe that the first year is already over.
In the last month she’s really started to walk everywhere.
She finally started to sleep in her OWN bed. Bittersweet.
When we tell Ruby “no” she smiles and waves at us. Then tries to do it anyway.
She is a HUGE fan of bathtime.
Whenever you pick her up she rests her head on your shoulder. And if you aren’t moving she will start to kick you.
She says uh-oh, loves food of all kinds.
Refuses to give up the bottle yet. Whatever.
Loves her pacifier but if she can’t find it she will suck on her thumb.
At 1 year she weighs 17lbs 4oz, and 29.5 inches long. Petite and perfect. She has four teeth.
Happy birthday, sweet Ruby Roo! We love you so much, and are so happy you are part of our family!!
