A little bit about Ruby at 16 months...
Reading Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?
Playing with her dolls (!!!)
Drinking my smoothies from a straw
Wearing beads (she's pretty fancy)
Working on identifying her own body (she has "neck" "tummy" "head" "nose" and "mouth" down)
I'm more than just a little bit excited about Ruby's interest in her dolls. She likes girl things!!! I've been saying since the boys were little that I don't know boy toys...and I still don't. I tend to pick out stuff that I think looks pretty sweet only to have it be rejected after five minutes and never played with again. I just don't get it. But give me girl stuff? I'm in! Dolls, dress-up, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, princesses, tea parties - yes yes and yes! Ruby totes her dolls around the house, plays with her Little People house (and can identify the baby, mama, and daddy) and she loves shoes! If she spies a pair from her perch in the Target shopping cart, she'll point and squeal and once I grab the shoes she'll kinda shake her foot around so I know she wants to try them on. For real. Girl likes her shoes. I'm already daydreaming about her big girl room (heck, I've been daydreaming about a lot since the moment she was born!) and I'm so excited to see where her girly interests will take her.
