Our amazing Ruby-
She is so smart, so caring, so mature, so deep, so sweet, and so thoughtful.
|birthday breakfast date with Daddy at Onyx|
She had begged and waited SO PATIENTLY to get her ears pierced when she turned 6 and today was finally the day!
I wasn't sure how it would go because she had hardly gotten any sleep the night before (late church night and hello! birthday tomorrow!) and didn't take a nap so she was soooo sleepy. By the time we pulled into the parking lot of the mall to get her ears done she had fallen asleep in her seat. I thought "uh oh." Who wants to wake up and be groggy and out of it and then have needles shoved through their ears?
A very eager, expectant six year old, that's who:)
We were torn about letting her do this, seemed like such a big step away from little to big, but this girl...
she is so, so helpful. She does chores and school and takes care of things. She is ALWAYS helping me out in any way she can. Holds Violet when she's crying and I am cleaning up a mess from a toddler fit or grabbing something burning on the stove or whatever.
She changes Violet's diaper and gets her dressed when we're running out the door and I'm doing too many things to count.
Lays with Nora until she falls asleep for her naps and then sneaks out to stay up with me.
She's just such a huge helper. As I type this, she's cleaning up the house to earn getting to make a recipe she found in an Amelia Bedelia chapter book she's reading. (heart eyes!!!!!)
|shopkins, of course. our one little fling with commercially popular toys...|
HAPPY 6TH BIRTHDAY RUBY!!!!!
WE LOVE YOU!!!!!
