My Baby Girl is ONE!!!

Yesterday was my sweet Ruby's birthday. She is growing up so fast -- it's incredible. I think it's no coincidence that her birthday is right before Thanksgiving because by just looking at her I am overwhelmed by how blessed my life is. She is such a happy, cuddly, funny baby that I just can't get enough of her.

I think I'm becoming a true Christensen because somehow I have contributed to the 62,000 nicknames we have for her. Some of them are cute (probably only to us) and some of them are absolutely horrible (I did not give her any of those, mind you). Here are some of the most common:

Ruby-dooby (Henry's personal favorite)
Rubels (yuck, I know)
Rubix-cube (Scott's contribution)
Ruby Begay (Scott's dad's contribution, a real winner)
Rubinha (pronounced Rube-een-ya, gotta love Portuguese)


Ruby truly is one of the greatest blessings the Lord could have given us and we feel lucky to be her parents. She is 50% of our pride and joy (I'll give you one guess who the other 50% belongs to. Here's a hint: It's not the dog.) and we love everything about her. We love you Ruby Jane!

And again, for those of you who have a little more time on your hands. Here's our tribute to little Ruby Jane:

Cels, I love that slide show! You looked so cute preggers with her, and I loved the hands and toes pictures.

SEriously, there is something about her look.....she just makes me smile (even if her serious little face won't smile back at me!). I also loved the headband photo (when Scott was in charge), and her in her little church outfit cruising around.

I can't believe our babies are one already....seriously, where did the time go??

I just had to drop you a note letting you know that I (Wes too) love doing a little blog snopping sometimes. Love seeing your cute little family (dog included)!

Hope all is well with you.

Happy Birthday Ruby! I love all of the pictures. She has the cutest dress and sweater in that pic with you and I like the sweet ninja headband. Who knows how Cody would handle the headband. Scott has it mastered. Oh and I love the new look of the blog you festive people. How do you do that?
