Ruthie's 1/2 birthday




(taken by the insanely talented Ryan Price of Ryan Price Photography.....check him out)

Ruthie's 1/2 birthday came and went over the Thanksgiving holiday.

It's hard to believe she has been in our arms for 6 months because it feel like she has been here forever.

She is nothing but sweet- such a cuddly happy girl. I could count on one hand the number of times she cries in a day.

Even a cold and horrible cough wouldn't bring her spirits down.

I'm really treasuring every moment I have with her during this first year of life.....those pre-mobile days. I often find myself just sitting with her in my rocking chair and cuddling.

I've sang all of my girls this lullaby- heard in Dumbo, Beaches, and also sang by Allison Krauss (love this version the best).

My heart leaps hearing my older girls sing it to Ruthie, which is quite often around here. Not because she is crying, but just out of the blue.

Baby Mine

Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
never to part,
baby of mine.

Little one when you play,
don't you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
never a tear,
baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you
they'd end up loving you two.
All of those people who scold you
what they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
you're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be,
baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you,
they'd end up loving you too.
All those same people who scold you,
what they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes
you're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be,
baby of mine.
Baby of mine

So adorable!! She really is the sweetest baby, but then again all of your girls are sweet. It's because they have an awesome mama!
