11 Months

Apr 12, 2015
Ruby is 11 months, which means she only has one more month until her first birthday. tear.


Her biggest accomplishment this past month was taking her first steps!!

At the beginning of the month she was just randomly taking a step here or there when she was feeling rather brave.  Then one morning, after family prayer, she just randomly took 8 steps towards Paul!  Her fan club erupted.  



She didn't walk much again until she was almost 11 months, and now she's doing it as much as she can.  


She broke Navasard tradition and took her first steps at 10 months instead of 14.  She's just in a hurry, this one.  

Ruby is happiest when she's getting into things and able to be right where the action is.  



She loves to be outside watching all the kids play and keeping an eye out for her friends.  


She has made many trips up and down the sidewalk pushing her mickey car, trying to keep up with the big kids.  

Ruby also loves other babies and often pokes at them until they start crying, as can be seen here on the right, with one of her bff's Lottie. It's the result of having Crew and Miles as your older brothers I suppose. :)


Ruby and Crew have started to play together and I love it.  They love to chase each other and play in Crew's bed.  While getting ready for bed one night Crew said to Ruby, "Come in my bed Ruby, I read pictures to you." I about melted.  




Sometimes Ruby and I accidentally match for church and get pretty excited about it when we finally notice. 


Ruby has yet to show fear of much.  This particular day she just screamed, smiled, laughed, and hugged this freaky kangaroo as she rode it around the mall.  It was hilarious.  



One of my current favorite things about Ruby is how her hair is starting to get curly!!!


She's getting wild, fast, extremely loud, and opinionated...I'm loving watching her personality come out.  



And just in case you think she's the most perfectly happy baby ALL the time, here's proof that she does get grouchy from time to time.  :)


I say it all the time, but it's just not fair that each baby grows up faster than the one before them!!

Not fair she can't be that old. She is adorable & has such a cute personality. She has a lot of people to keep up with . I love how she & Crew are becoming friends and that her hair is curling.

one month to go

May 20, 2013
He has almost survived his first year of life! 

Crew is pretty much a giant baby and is often confused for a toddler.  


He has started pulling up, but is still on the fence on whether he likes it or not. He mostly just prefers to be on his knees still, which is just fine with me.  


I'm pretty excited that this kid might actually have curly hair! 

He loves making messes and emptying things.  Although I'm hoping he develops a love for putting things away too. :)




One of my favorite things Crew does, is the way he always has to make sure that you are watching him.  He will lean his neck way out just to make sure you can see him, whether it's over the couch, around the corner, or just over some heads in the grocery cart. Love him. 


He loves Macey and sometimes Miles.  Sometimes he doesn't mind Miles screaming in his face, other times it freaks him out.  Poor baby.

This week though when Crew had a bloody lip from another fall, Miles was actually concerned and was crying, "My baby brother! What wrong with my baby brother?" and then he gave him a hug.  It's moments like these that give me a small glimmer of hope. 

Crew has actually been whiney this week and I'm hoping it's due to some teeth coming in or something! He has pretty much been my constant shadow, which is cute and annoying at the same time.


Now I have got to get going on first birthday party planning!  I cannot believe it is almost here.

This post so fabulously captures real life. The picture of Crew peeking around the grocery cart melted my heart AND made me groan - grocery shopping with three kids! Look how huge that cart is, people! We are in the trenches. And the picture of the boys reaching over a grimacing Macey made me giggle. So real!
