I know that every parent finds their child amazing. I am no different. I think Ruby is the MOST wonderful child.I love talking about her. This isn't my first post highlighting my daughter. I am positive it will not be the last. I admit it. I am bragger when it comes to her. I know most people find bragging to be a negative personality trait, but when it comes to your children, I think there is, or their should be an exception to the rule.
So, I officially release your inner bragging rights. Let it loose. Talk about how AWESOME your child is. What are they doing in their lives that you are proud of? What did they say that was so hilarious? How are they changing? Are they an athlete? Are they an artist? Are they a comedian? Are they serious or insightful?
How have they changed you?
Don't you just want to freeze time to keep them just as they are?
From time to time my father likes to remind me that I promised him I would never grow up. Now that I am a parent, I understand how he probably wished that my promise was possible. I think about Ruby one day being a grown woman and it seems like a million years away. And yet it seems like it was only yesterday when she was born and we took her home thinking, "What do we do now?" And here we are looking at a walking, talking, dancing, cheering, singing, hugging, loving 2 year old.
That grown woman is just around the corner. So, while I've got her, I'm gonna brag!
Here are some pictures I took today of Ruby. I'm thinking of using one of these photos to enter her in a beautiful baby contest. Tell me your favorite. Obviously, I posted some that are just silly because I love her expressions. So, I probably won't send those in, but they are here for your enjoyment.
I'm always amazed at how many moods and faces Ruby can have in one day! It must be exhausting. I know I am tired at the end of the day just trying to keep up!
Don't forget to tell me all about your Kiddo! and your favorite picture!
