A girl thing

Ruby loves to be near her Mama. I love this little face that she makes once she gets a glimpse of me across the room. A girl on a mission to make it to her Mom's lap. Where she is content to spend her days sucking away at her thumb.

Ruby is 13 Months

This little girl is so much fun. She has started trying to chat a lot with us. She has learned to say Uh-Oh and Growl at you. She also can make a kiss sound when you ask her for a kiss. Still a loves to cuddle up to Mama (as she calls me). Occasionally Dad can get a 5 second cuddle from the Doll. She is not big into any toys. It is pretty rare that you will find Ruby playing with toys. If I am anywhere near she likes to crawl on over and sit right on Mama's lap. Happy to just be held. She has started to suck her thumb even more than usual, hope we can break that habit one day. I put her hair in a few little buns and this was the aftermath. We love having this living doll in our family. With her grough manly sounding laugh and all.

My friend’s always give me a hard time for being a little lax about keeping bows in Ruby girl’s hair. I told my friend Leslie the other day that I needed to trim around Ruby's ears because her hair was getting too long. She laughed and said "Oh No honey, Ruby is a girl remember? You let the hair grow". I am so use to keeping hair short with the boys that I did not even think I could do anything different with Ruby. I do think a darling little bob will fit the doll quite nicely. Anyhow yesterday I did three little buns in her hair. I really outdid my normal self. I did not snap a shot of it done but here is the aftermath. She did look darling. I guess I am turning a new leaf. So eat your hearts out girlfriends.
P.S I think this is why Ruby is turning more and more to her thumbs.
