To translate, that’s “Happy Birthday, Ruthie!’ in the words of the birthday girl herself. We got spiffed up for Mass and went all together for once, so we thought we’d share our outfits and a little photo essay on our current favorite 2-year-old.
Margot and Ruthie are wearing matching dresses from Nana, who go them at her favorite store ON SALE (that’s very important to Nana, who never pays full price). I can’t actually remember the name of the store right now, but they are lovely old-fashioned dresses with lots of nice pleating and smocking and embroidered details. Can’t wait to see them on Jackie and Carmela! I’m wearing a non-maternity dress (from Target?) as a tunic over maternity leggings. Worked pretty well!
Ruthie was born 2 years ago today, only 5 days after we moved into this house, which is craze-balls but that’s pregnancy for you. Here is she is already showing what a happy easy baby she would be at just a few days old…
Margot had been a very high-maintenance infant (and toddler…) and so Ruthie’s babyhood was a huge relief — I actually forgot she was there several times because she’d just lie happily in her pack and play looking at the ceiling for, like 30 minutes at a time, which had NEVER happened with Margot. I do remember saying even then, though, that I’d probably pay for all this peace once day.
Here she is on her first birthday, looking so little still!
She is still sweet and cuddly, but she has become a very stubborn and defiant little thing, too. She has pretty much developed a textbook case of the Terrible Twos! But we love her. Happy Boopee, Poopee!
