I was laying in bed this morning looking at Ruby and realized (for the thousandth time) just how lucky and happy I am to have a little girl.
I will be STOKED when we have a little Mister, don't get me wrong. In fact, I think our next one will be a boy for sure. But there is just something about my little Ruby that we're both girls and will always have the Mother/Daughter bond that is so irreplaceable.
Daddy LOVES when she dresses girly. He even asks "does she have like a bow or a headband we could put on?" when getting ready for church. (never saw THAT coming!)
But I think she is like me. Girly, sure, but not over the top by any means.
When we put super girly stuff on her, it just doesn't look right and we end up taking it off. That's exactly how I am when I'm getting dressed.
Fashion rule #1- if you are uncomfortable wearing it and don't feel like "you" TAKE IT OFF!!
So here's our perfect balance. Girly, and adorable if I do say so myself...but certainly not over the top.
How PERFECT is this little knit penguin Ruby's cousins (well, my cousins) sent her!
I dare say, this is one of my absolute top favorite gifts we've received for her.
ALL THE WAY FROM LONDON!!
This had to pass customs, had 20 pounds written on it instead of our boring dollars, and the mail was "Royal Air"...
how fancy, Ruby Girl!
