Half a year...

Miss Ruth Ella
is 6 months old today!

It's so hard to believe that 6 months has passed by
since Ruth Ella entered this world.
We are loving every minute with her, and still soaking in all the pink.
She loves to be held, rocked, and cuddled.....
of course with her thumb in her mouth.
When she's awake her brothers are all a buzz around her,
doting over her and giving her one toy after another.
All this attention is great, but it also keeps a girl from needing to do for herself.
Miss Ruth Ella can roll from her stomach to her back, but has yet to
master rolling from her back to her stomach.
She hasn't found the need for rolling around or being a little more mobile,
because her brothers will do it for her.
They roll her over, they hold her, sing her songs, and read her books.
William calls her "his" princess, and tells everyone she loves Mama and him best.
(yes he's a little possessive and we're working on that)

Miss Ruth Ella is now eating cereal once a day, and she loves it!
She is now on a wonderful schedule. She takes 2 napes a day and goes to be for the
night between 8:30 and 9:00PM, and sleep until 7:00AM....
this makes her Mama very happy:)

She is sooo cute!! That is so funny about her having all that attention. That is definitely a large family trait!! We had it too when Granton was smaller. I didn't think he'd ever walk because his sisters were always picking him up. Now he lets our a cry when they do. Working on that one :-)
