Shh! Don't tell Dad

OK, Steve already saw Ruthie in her Mines gear, courtesy of Uncle Sam and Aunt Ro. He protested but not very strongly. I think he has a thing for Mines girls.

This was my last week at home with Ruthie. I start back to work on Monday. I am excited about work, but not so excited about leaving my baby with someone else. I will miss her dearly.

This last week we got to meet Ruthie's cousin Chase for the first time. He was born in November to my cousin Alysa and her husband Scott.

This picture was suppose to be Great Grandma Brubaker with her great grandkids, but I guess you can tell which two are mobile.

We had a great time seeing everyone. It had definitely been too long.

Finally, here is Grandpa showing Ruthie the appropriate hand gestures for the Black Jack table. A little scary, but she seemed to enjoy it.

Indoor Girl

This is a picture from Ruthie's first trip to the zoo. She obviously enjoyed it. We went on Thursday morning with Sommer and Shelby, but the weather was so hot we didn't last too long.

Cousin Shelby got her turn to hold Baby Ruthie after the trip to the zoo. Looks like Ruthie enjoys her cousin.

Same day as the zoo, but we are inside catching up on a little Gilmore Girls. It might be too early to tell, but I am guessing Ruthie is an indoor girl like her mom.

Here is Ruthie with her daddy.

We'll Give It A Try

Well, I thought I would try starting a blog to chronical Ruthie's growth. Besides all the cool kids are doing it! She is about 2 and half months now. We took her to the doctor last week and she is 12.5 lbs and 24 inches, which puts her in the 90th and 95th percentiles, respectively. She has jumped up to the 3-6 months clothes, too! Over the last couple of weeks she has discovered her hands. In particularly, her mouth found her thumb.

This is one of my favorite pictures of her half smile.
