I guess you've gathered that the days of posting pictures of Ruby everyday are gone gone gone. Yeah, we just don't have the time for that anymore! Ruby is busy seeing the world and meeting with dignitaries. Ok maybe not exactly that... but still not time to post everyday. We're still trying for a couple of times a week though.....
So Yesterday mama went back to work for the first time. I don't know how Ryan has gone to work everyday since she was 2 weeks old. No wonder he rushes home at the end of the day and calls/emails to check in. it is HARD to leave. But... we won't bore you with the sad details of mama crying in the car, and all of her patients having to listen to her talk about miss Ruby-roo all day (well for the 3 hours I worked yesterday)... we'll tell what Ruby and Daddy did while Mama worked!
Reading!!! Dad discovered that Ruby loves books! (she gets it from me) He read her three books that were gifts from my awesome friend Hilary (who just had a huge baby boy!!). They also watered the yard - an old favorite of Ruby's and she drank a full three oz of breatsmilk from the bottle (and was still hungry!). Go dad! The only person who cried was me... hopefully that will get better with time, but since I'm only working two half days a week for the next few months, i should survive.
Today Ruby got weighed again, 10 lbs 11 oz! I think she's gonna be petite like her mama. We also went to a NINO meeting, all about babywearing.... and practiced using the maya wrap.
Maybe you'll all get lucky and there will be more of the ruby chronicles later this week.... but I wouldn't hold my breath!
