Holy cow, only two weeks until this girl is ONE YEAR OLD. These pictures are on time but it took me a while to post- life is crazy! This sweet girl is just a joy though, 11 months and still my sweet squishy baby.
at 11months Ruth....
is solidly crawling from room to room! I can't get enough of those chubby thighs in action!
still breaks out in the biggest gummy smile/laugh when she sees one of her besties. Her besties being namely me, Steve, one of her sisters, Nana, Papa, Grandma, Grandpa, Fordy or Eleanor. I guess the list is pretty long! She's just the jolliest baby!
has no teeth. She is my biggest and earliest eater....and the latest teether! lol
seems to increase by the day.... despite the increased level of activity.
is so entertaining at the dinner table. Between using her hand as a literal shovel for food into her mouth (I need to get it on video, this description doesn't do it justice), to throwing her head back with nose scrunched squinty eyes and the gummiest smile. It is amazing! She loves her food.
has been my first baby to embrace cow's milk. She's been drinking 4 oz at night and sometimes in the morning as well which feels like a big deal for me! Her doctor this time around said to start giving it to her at 10 1/2 months (whereas I waiting until 1 year to introduce it to the older girls) so maybe that has something to do with it?
has tons of thick hair! It seems to be straight though...the other girls didn't turn curly until they were a year but I'm thinking Ruth might be straight like her momma! We'll see...
is LOUD and very chatty. She's often happy or mad yelling at me about something. It's kind of hilarious. Usually it has something to do with me not feeding her fast enough...
is pulling herself up on her knees but is not a fan of standing on her feet.
gives the best hugs and cuddles and has started pulling me in for long hugs when I'm pushing her in the cart at the grocery store, it's the sweetest.
She is overall just the most delicious little chub! We're all completely smitten!
