The last few months

Kristen and I can't believe how fast time has gone by since Ruby was born! She is growing like a weed, and is a very happy little gal. We blessed her at the beginning of April and were lucky enough to be able to use the same dress that Kristen was blessed in when she was a baby. It was made by one of Kristen's Aunts.

We're still trying to get used to the whole "headband for girls" thing, but they never stay on, so as far as I'm concerned we should just trash 'em. Kristen still tries to get her to were one, but only about once a week. You would think that since she only wears one rarely, we would have 3 or 4, but I swear Kristen makes a new one every other day. She enjoys it, so I don't give her too hard a time about it.

The weather has been warm so on the rare occasion that it's not pouring rain, we go outside to play in the back yard. We got Jerry this little slide combo about a month ago, and he has really enjoyed it.

We also try to eat outside anytime it's nice. Jerry enjoying a nice piece of angel food cake last week.

Jerry has recently started throwing these INSANE temper tantrums. Kristen and I think that it is because we can't understand his words and what he wants all the time,so he gets frustrated. I'm sure as his speech gets better, the tantrums will go away. (Let's hope)

Jerry still is really kind to Ruby and loves to show her any kind of affection that he can, whether it is hugging, or kissing, or biting, or licking, or slapping. Ruby is a champ and just takes it without crying. the only time that I can remember when Jerry made her cry is when he head butted her in the face (not on purpose of course).
