Things with Ruby has been so much fun in the past few months. She has had a lot of accomplishments since turning one. Ruby is learning all of her animal sounds, she can tell us what a cow says, a duck, a dog, a turkey, Santa and sometimes a cat. She loves to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Backyardagains, and Blues Clues (of course). She also has a cute little fake laugh she copies anyone who is laughing and really laughs out loud. Ruby is trying to talk as much as possible, but mostly it comes out as gibberish still, sometimes you can understand what she says. It is so cute! She is also WALKING!!!!! Still a little wobbly but she is loving the fact that she can walk all over, she carries things from the kitchen to the other rooms in the house! She loves the Christmas tree, the decorations don't stay on the tree very well..mostly the jingle bells and some small stockings. Ruby also got a Little People Nativity Scene she loves it and played with it all night long. We are so excited for this Holiday season, we are excited to be surrounded by the people we love! We are going to Utah for the Steed Christmas party this weekend and are very excited to get to spend some time with them! Curtis and I are so thankful for everything that we have, for our parents and siblings. Most of all we are so grateful for Ruby and the chance we get to be her parents, we thanks the Lord every night for her wonderful spirit that she brings to our home. I hope that every one has a Merry Christmas!!!
So I have been so bad at keeping up with my blogging but things have finally settled down so I have a little time to tell you about a lot of things that have happened since Ruby was 7 months.

Well first and most important Ruby turned 1!! October 12th was just as special as last year when our beautiful 5lb 8oz baby girl arrived in our lives. We set up a party in Hailey with my side of the family on her birthday, we went dinner (had pizza), then back to Gammie and Pop Pop's for cake and presents. Ruby got some really cute clothes and toys, and also a beautiful toy box that Uncle Logan made for her. She was into opening her presents until she spotted the balloons all over the floor, then she got super excited! I made her a "party outfit" for her, it was so cute on her. Then when it was time for cake, we sang "Happy Birthday" to her and she was so happy that every one was singing to her. The cake was so cute Pop Pop, Gammie and I made it for her and all the cupcakes, but Ruby isn't much for sweets she tasted the frosting and then MADE her Gammie taste it too, then she was done with it. lol funny little stinker! Then on Saturday she had another party in Rockland and Grandma and Grandpa's house. She invited all her cousins to come and play with her...except little Ben cuz he was only 4 days old (yes they share a birthday). She wasn't feeling to well that day but she was a trooper. She opened all her presents from everyone and espcially loved her dolly from Grandpa and Grandma. She was a little more interested in the cake this time she ate some frosting and the fondant flowers..yuck! But we all had a blast celebrating. Happy Birthday Ruby you are so speical to your Daddy and me, and all of your family! We are looking forward to many more years of just as much exciting new things you do. i have more pics from the other party too still to post!
So we had a very eventful summer we got to go camping 3 different times this summer, once just the three of us, once with the Farnsworth Family and once with the Steed Family! They were all so much funn and Ruby loved it! She was so excited to be outside. Went to Lagoon! We also went to a Carrie Underwood concert for the 4th of July and Ruby did really well there too. We went swimming a number of times. We spent alot of time at the American Falls Resevior, went to bear lake and to Hailey a few times. We spent all summer traveling and spending time with all of our family! Such a fun summer, I will post a few of my favs from the summer.
Well I am sure that I could add about a hundred more pictures but I will try to refrain from that. So we are doing very well, Curtis and I are just loving looking back on this past year and wondering how we ever lived with out our beautiful girl. We love all of our family and friends and thank them for everything you have all done for us. Love you all!

She got her pictures taken for her 6 months, I know that I am a little late on posting them but I love them she is so cute!!! We did our little photoshoot with Jen and Emily that was really fun and the girls were really cute!!!
I just had my first mother's day and it was great. Ruby picked out my own card and her Daddy even let her sign it. She also got me a frame with a saying about Mother's. Curtis took me on a date we went to Applebee's and Iron Man! It was great! Then we went to my parents house to spend the day and have dinner! It was great!
I also wanted to show you this video of Ruby reading her book in the car. This was Ruby's first Easter and she got lots of great things of all her grandparents! Grandma Steed and Great Grandma Garfield got her a beautiful Easter dress. She looked so cute, she wore it the Sunday before Easter and all the women in our ward said she was the cutest Easter egg! Then Ruby's Gammie brought her a chicken that does the chicken dance...she loves it!!!! and a cute little floppy elephant, new socks, and a white sweater that she needed too. Then her G-pa (my dad) picked out the cutest jumper for her...and Dad it does make her look sweet! Curtis, Ruby and I just stayed home for Easter and watched Conference...Ruby wasn't feeling well either she had a cold. The Easter bunny brought Ruby a new Backyardagains movie. We have already watched it like 3 or 4 times she loves it. Well Curtis and I really enjoyed conference this session, we really enjoyed that it was about parenting and how to teach your kids about the gospel. I also loved that it was about Mothers and their daughters, that helped me out alot. We love the gospel and are trying to teach Ruby to love it as well..even at the very young age! Thanks to all of Ruby's Grandparent she loves everything she got!
So Ruby and I went to my Mom and Dad's house for the a few days last week. We went with Auntie Raegan, it was a fun girls week...well and my Dad. We had a blast!!! It was a nice vacation after quitting my job to stay home with my beautiful baby girl! While we were gone Curtis went with his dad, Uncle, and brother in laws to a Jazz game....luckily the Jazz won and they had great seats (row 26) they were so excited and had a great time! Then that weekend was Curtis and mine 2nd year anniversary, we had a great weekend hat home, Raegan and Logan took Ruby up to my Mom and Dad's again for the weekend. It was hard at first and then right at the end when we wanted her home. We realized how quiet our house is without her little noises she makes while she sleeps...Grandma said that the first night she didn't sleep every well because of all of the noise Ruby makes. They all ended up having a great time. I just wanted to let my husband know how much I love him and that these past two years have been great! We have a great daughter and a wonderful amount of love for each other and her. I love you so much! can't wait to see what this next year brings us. Thanks so much to my parents for helping with Ruby...and to Auntie Rae and Uncle Log for all the help they did too in taking care of Ruby. We love all of our families and the wonderful things that they have done for us! here are some pics for you to enjoy!
