Ruby's 2nd Birthday!

Ruby's 2nd birthday was last weekend.  Let me tell you, the realization that your baby is growing up is a hard pill to swallow.  I find myself just staring at her in complete disbelief at how BIG she is. Now, she's no bigger than her friends that are her age, but my goodness she seems like a giant compared to her little brother!  I also can't help but let my mind wander to what she'll be like when she's 5, 10 . . . 50!  Are we doing right by her?  Are we raising a wonderful future adult? Argh, parenting is confusing and totally stressful! Though, outweighing the stresses and confusion are the most wonderful things anyone could imagine!

Ruby's party was awesome! All of her best buds were there. . .Owen, the boyfriend; Grady & Brookston, buds forever; Nana Becca, the best aunt ever; Camryn, lil' sis from another mother; not to mention grandparents galore and Mommy & Daddy's friends!  It was an art party with painting, sidewalk chalk, lots of messiness, and cake & CHOCOLATE ice cream to top it all off! 

We are so fortunate to have our amazing 2 year old Ruby!  We love every day with her, but wish it would slow down a bit!
