It's about time for a Ruby update. She's 9 months and 2 weeks old. I'm not sure why we call her "Doobers" or "Dooby", because it's not any shorter than "Ruby". I guess it's just cute. She's proving herself to be very silly-- she'll repeat things over and over again if they make somebody laugh.
She's eating a lot of solids-- bananas, canned peaches & pears, cheerios, yogurt, ice cream. Her first teeth finally broke through- the two bottom ones. She's also started drinking through a straw and using a sippy cup. Just water, though.
She's been pointing a lot lately. In the picture above, I asked her where the doggie was and she's pointing to him. She totally loves dogs, and gets very excited anytime she sees one.
