Can’t believe I am finally writing this blog! Whew! This video is about attempt 3 by Ruby this morning. Just out of the blue she decided it was time to cover more ground! I wondered if this was a fluke but she has proved that it was not! She has been a crawling maniac all day.

We did have the wonderful ladies from the Idaho Infant Toddler Program visit today to observe Ruby since we were concerned she hasn’t been progressing as fast as she should with her large motor skills. They were very pleased to report that everything looks good and got a good chuckle out of the fact that Ruby decided to crawl moments before they arrived. Needless to say they will be back in a month to check on Ruby’s progress.

Once again we are grateful for answered prayers! Goodness knows how much I love this kid, can’t imagine how much He does!

Labor Day 2011

Well, Ruby survived her first visit to California wine country! She was quite the trooper and really did quite well given all the starts and stops, naps in the car, etc. We were grateful to have some extra hands available as well. Bob (Papa Pro), my mom (Grandma Gigi) and dad (Papa Bear) met us in Sonoma. Needless to say Ruby was well attended.

The weather was great (even a little hot) and the wine was even better. We enjoyed great food as well. I’ll have Kris write more details on both when he has the chance. Our special dinner out to Madrona Manor was very special and amazing!
