Ruby and friends

Ruby has a lot of little friends who are around her age.  So far, she thinks they look delicious, and always tries to eat them.  Up top is Otis, who is almost a month younger than Ruby.  The baby in the coordinating outfit is Lucy, who is two months.  Doesn't it look like Ruby is trying to punch her in the mouth?  Rivalries start early.

Hanging at home

Ruby is six months old now!  She is 14 pounds of pure happiness.  She smiles most of the time, and ALWAYS smiles when her sister is entertaining her.  She can almost sit up by herself, and is eating solids like a champ.

Ramona is living almost entirely in her pretend world.  She is always at school, on a picnic, in a boat, or on other adventures.  I have trouble separating her reality from her pretend world sometimes.

Just a little to the library with the girls now.

Tulips and alpacas

We went on an adventure to Skagit Valley today to look at the amazing fields of tulips.  We were lucky enough to have Grayson's family drive us up there......we were a packed car!  Ramona loved playing with Grayson and the alpacas, and made a slight notice of the tulips.  She did like all of the different colors, but as you can see above, was not a fan of posing for pictures in the tulip fields.  I had never gone up there to see the tulips, and its definitely worth checking out.  All four of the kids on the trip (Ramona, Grayson, Ruby and Raegan) did great!

Ramona in March

Ramona has been changing so fast lately.  She has gotten a little more devious, and even more stubborn (she is like her mom more and more each day!).  She loves to pretend......she makes us lots of pretend meals.  She also likes to cook with her dad, and makes us lots of real meals.  Last night she helped roll out the dough for pizza, and sprinkle the sauce, cheese and toppings on.  Justin is very patient!  She got her first big girl haircut the other day.  She thought it was a blast, because she got to get a tiny cupcake afterwards.  She suggested that we go get haircuts more often.  Though she seems to get more and more gregarious and talkative at home, she has had a shy streak lately when she is out and about.  She prefers to stand next to mom and Ruby when we are at the park instead of playing with friends.  This may be part of her transition to being a big sister.  She has been speaking a little spanish at home, due to her spanish preschool, and of course, Dora.  Looking forward to all of the new things to come with Ramona!
