Mmmm solid foods

Ruthie got to try her first solid food this weekend. They warned us to present the spoon sideways so she isn't itimidated and to be patient that she will spit out most of what she goes in her mouth. Well, I guess that all doesn't apply to babies that are half Brubaker. She grabbed the spoon from us and actedly like she knew exactly what is was for. She doesn't waste much food spitting it back out either. Mommy and Daddy are the ones that need the practice, especially getting the spoon the mouth and not the nose!

I know she looks mad, but it was probably just because we ran out of cereal at this sitting. She finally rolled over for us unassisted tonight. I was just starting to worry when she did it out of the blue. She is also sitting very well and has figured out how to get from a sitting position to her stomach. She rocks in the sitting position until she falls face forward, but she gets her arms and legs out quick and gets the illusive object set in front of her. It isn't the prettiest thing to watch but she is definitely doing it with a purpose. We are excited to post Halloween picture next week!

Gramma's Birthday

Happy Birthday, Gramma! My mom celebrated her 29th birthday again this year with a little PF Changs and some ice cream cake. Here she is with Shelby and Ruthie.
I am a little late on these pictures but they are from our trip to Rocky Ford a couple of weekends ago.
Our little pumpkin!
I don't think that Ruthie was quite sure about her homecoming visit with Blaster. Go Diggers!
I think Ruthie's mommy has given that same look to that same computer several times.

Ruthie got to spend some time at home with Mommy last week because we had her tested for whooping cough. Luckily it wasn't that and her cough is definitely getting better. She has been showing a lot of interest in adult food lately, so we think we will start her on cereal here soon. Not that she needs it, but she keeps making us feel guilty by staring at us whenever we eat or drink. I am starting to get a complex. She is sitting up well, but we are still working on getting her to roll over. Sarah and I took her to the Mines Homecoming parade and part of the game. She seemed to be amused by the parade, but Blaster wasn't too interested in us at the game.

Ruthie enjoying her latest "must read".

Seriously Mom, we need to talk about introducing some solids foods.

Remember the solid foods I mentioned before?
Here are a couple more pictures of Ruthie. She is growing lots. We took her to the doctor this week for a cough. They weighted her and she is 17 lbs and 5.6 oz. As her Uncle Nate says, she is not missing any meals! Other than her cough, she is doing great!
