I just wanted to write down a few things about Ruth so that I can remember how she is right now. I just love this peanut and she brings joy to our life. I often have to laugh, and shake my head. I have had 4 babies before her and never really had much of a problem taking them shopping... Then comes Ruth. She hates to sit in the cart. Normally I just made my kids stay there and gave them something to entertain them. NOT Ruth! Those seat belts don't hold her in. She crawls out and then climbs out of the cart (I have had to catch her several times from hitting the ground) So I tried putting her in the basket, again she can climb out! I will try carrying her and shopping. Killer on my back and arms, plus tough to drive the cart. Anyway once and a while I let her walk a little, this is even more crazy! Monday at the grocerie store she would run which ever direction she wanted (it was really quiet there this is the ONLY reason I let her do this). She would help push the cart (which was the best option) she even found the "mark down" cart and pushed it a little ways. I had to stop that before she ran into the glass case... then she started pulling all the cans off the shelf.... you get the idea. It is so good that she is the last and not the first. I have a little more patients for all this and am not pregnant while dealing with this behavior. Most of the time I do the best I can at distracting her and keeping her busy and out of trouble but once and a while I just shake my head and laugh.
This picture is taken with her best buddy Elmo. I think she is trying to say his name now... she says "beh bo" or Beh mo. Not sure one of those. It is pretty stinking cute! She carries him a lot! Sleeps with him and often won't put him down for a meal. Which means yesterday he got a bath in the washing machine. She loves all stuffed animals but he is number one! When she sees him on tv she gets very excited. It is pretty cute! I just turned this pusher into a scooter for her this afternoon and she loved it! It was pretty cute how she figured out how to push it and that she wouldn't put Elmo down to ride. I showed her he would fit in the little "trunk or Hood" But she wouldn't hear of it. She was holding on to him. She is always into something, climbing something, dumping something, or a sleep. I can't get enough of her. When I was sitting taking picture of her and watching her discover this new toy I couldn't stop thinking before I know it she is going to leave me for Kindergarten... then what... I know what, it will just be an odd feeling to not have a little person to play with all day. Stay little my little one!
She also started pointing to herself when you ask her where is the baby. SOOOO CUTE!
