Ruby is 8 weeks old today. I think she weighs about 12 pounds....she is quite the chunker! I don't think I've ever seen a baby with so many rolls at this age! I love it!! She is also very strong. She loves to pull herself up to sitting and she's happy when you let her "stand". I've been trying to get some pictures of her cute smile but you know how that goes. For the last 2 or 3 weeks, she's been sleeping for about 6 hours in a row during the night which is wonderful!! We are so blessed to have her in our lives.
This time of the year always reminds me of how grateful I should be for all that Christ has blessed us with. To think that God sent his son to earth in the most lowly and humble form - a baby! - has taken on a new meaning since I've had kids. And then that God would sacrifice his son for us! Amazing. I just can't comprehend the love of Christ! This Christmas, as I look at my daughters, it reminds me of God's love and that everything belongs to Him. I seem to forget that sometimes and I take things for granted, especially family. Many times, I find myself caught up in all of the shopping, presents, food, parties that I forget the true reason for Christmas. It seems like every year, society gets a little more caught up in the busy-ness of the season. Whereas I'm sure the wise men and shepherds had only one thing on their mind the first Christmas, worshiping Jesus.
I wasn't expecting to write all of this under Ruby turning 2 months! I'm just so happy for my family and I owe it all to God. I'll never be able to "repay" God for all of the blessings he's poured out on me, but I'll strive to guide my children to know Christ one day and live my life for Him. Happy 2 Months, Ruby and Merry Christmas everyone!!
