I can't believe this girl is a year old already! I'm reminded again though, that one year old is still a baby and that is a great comfort.
at one year old Ruth...
is still our chunky monkey and shows no signs of waining. The shoveling of food is still going strong and she is constantly out-eating both of her sisters.
has two whole teeth!
has lost most of the red in her hair, save for the slightest glint when the sun hits it just right. It's mostly sandy brown and I think it looks a lot like the color mine was as a baby.
always puts her legs straight out (flat) in a spread eagle when I lay her down in bed.
loves clicking her tongue, it's her new party trick.
is quite.....violent in her affections. Many a (happy) slap to the face and fierce grabbing going on over here.
is the funnest to get out of bed every morning. She may wake up crying, but as soon as I open the door she cracks the biggest smile and starts waving her hands up and down and laughing.
is drooling SO MUCH LATELY. Evidence to be found in every single one of these photos.
has been waking up super late a few times a week (like 10-11am) which seems to be our recipe for sleeping around this age and it's amazing!
love to spew water, milk and food and blow raspberries, my clothes/face will never be the same.
kicks off all her shoes! Hence the laced up booties she's wearing in these photos.
We love you sweet Ruthie! You have been a light in all our lives for these twelve months and more!
