Miss Ruby had a birthday today.
She turned "fee".
She knew it was in "Be-cember" and
that she wanted a pink cake.
Ruby--fresh out of bed.
We're growing out her bangs.
Well, she's growing them; I'm the one not cutting them.
I let her open one present at breakfast.
Blurry, but she is very excited about her new Cinderalla doll.
I shouldn't be surprised, really,
but the hit of the day were
I've never bought any of the kids birthday balloons,
but this time, I did.
And I think I should make it part of everyone's birthday!
She was SO excited to see them tied to her bed when she woke up
and to her chair when she came out for breakfast.
I tried to stretch out "her day"
by having something special at breakfast, dinner and then snack time.
She wore her new birthday dress, of course!
Linnea made her this little purse and put some coins in it.
Ruby LOVES it.
As for that pink cake,
I decorated it with some little plastic rings.
which soon enough were on her precious little fingers.
If you don't know Ruby in person,
you may not know that she is the very definition of little girl.
She loves anything pink, sparkly, fluffy, fancy, tiny, baby, etc.
Everything is so precious to her.
Once she came up to my mom cradling a little pebble in her hand.
"Looooook, Grandma---a baby rock!"
Happy 3rd Birthday, Miss Ruby.
I hope I always remember to try to see the world through your eyes.
I love you.
