costco double carts

Today Ruby finally got her turn in the cart. It was so fun to have both Ruby and Olivia in the top of the cart. I love Costco carts because of the double seat and the large carts. Luckily they had samples of applesauce so Ruby could experience her first sample too.

Ruby was happy to be in the cart and Olivia was happy about her Creamie.

a little too quiet

I was getting ready and Ruby was crying. I told Olivia to go play with her and to make her happy. Ruby's cries ceased and I continued getting ready. It had been quiet for quite a while and when I went into the living room I found Olivia rubbing diaper cream all over Ruby's feet.

Ruby Marie {7 Months}

Ruby has been trying lots of new foods and her top favorites are pears and sweet potatoes. I thought for sure she would like peaches, but they were barely tolerated. She gagged on rice, avocado, and butternut squash. One day she ate a whole container of green beans and the next day she was over it. She has been eating 1-2 containers a day. I am hoping that the extra food will show at our next weight check. She loves to chew on the little mum mum rice rusks and eats broken up yogurt puffs like I eat m&m's.

She sits really well and plays with her toys. I remember this being my favorite stage with Olivia because she was content, but couldn't get into trouble. And after being able to roll for a few months, now she does it all of the time. She doesn't travel too much but she will roll back and forth. 

When Ruby gets fussy, she instantly stops when Olivia comes over and talks to her. Olivia is great at saying, "It's okay Ruby, don't cry." "Ruby, we are almost home - you don't need to cry."

This month was better for us in the sleeping department. Most nights she only woke up twice and occasionally once. Her naps are still sporadic during the day. Sometimes one nap, sometimes 3 - 4.

She is currently wearing size 2 diapers, 3-6 month shorts and leggings, and anywhere from 3-12 months tops. I don't put shoes on her too often, but she wears size 1's and they are still a bit big for her. 

During this month she flew to Maui, Hawaii and spent a week with Grandma Shannon and Grandpa Lowell. She did a great job on the plane and on the red eye back she slept the entire time. She wasn't a huge fan of the water and barely got her feet wet.  

She is gibbering and making noises all of the time. She says Da- although she hasn't made the connection of who he is just yet.

Payson Temple Open House

Tonight our family was able to go to the Payson Temple Open House. (Dan was in New York for his internship. We missed him!) In my life I have been to a few temple open house, and it seems like since Bob and I have been married there has been 3 or 4. It has always been a neat experience, but it was especially neat as this is our temple. Living in Mapleton, we are in the boundaries for the Payson Temple.

The temple was beautiful and I am so excited to be able to go back soon. Olivia was so excited to be able to go inside. We always point out temples in books and pictures, and when we drive by. She loves to point out the Angel Moroni. We have also been talking about Baptism with her so it was neat for her to see the Baptismal font.
