Ruby Jay

Where have I been the last month of blog world??? I wish I could use the real Ruby as an excuse but the shower planning will have to do.
Below are the shots I took for her shower invite and announcement.
She is soooooo cute!
I love how crinkly her skin is on her arm. Like a new puppy who needs to grow into her skin.

These headbands are ridiculous, but oh so cute! I couldn't help myself when I borrowed the box of headbands from Summer. The same week I marched myself up and down the girl aisle at Kmart and bought every headband and ridiculous socks that look like little mary jane shoes I could find. Then I had to head home and face the hubs with the purchases.

And to finish off the photo shoot she put me in my place and pulled a little Ruby attitude.
I'm not sure if it at me or that headband, but still...Girl!
And to top it off, right after this she peed on my couch.

the one who ate the screwdriver

Recently more and more people are saying how much Emmitt looks like his momma. But who would have thought that he would inherit my eating foreign objects trait?! Well on Saturday the kid did it. See the little screwdriver on the right of the picture below? He ate it. And if you are wondering how it's in the bag...well momma got to put on some rubber gloves and dig through poop. In my defense I was in the bathroom getting ready for work and dad was in charge. But he had it in his mouth and took a drink of his fruit smoothie and down it went. Top that with the high quantities of popcorn and out came the screwdriver the next morning!
I say he gets it from me because I was about 5 and swallowed the revolver from the Clue game. Again, in my defense, Shawn Sirotiak told me to! It was one of the only times I can remember my mom spanking me. I was ashamed and knew better. When I told Parker this story, I asked him how many times he thinks he's been spanked and he answered a hundred. My poor kids.
