Ruthie is 2 months old!

Ruthie Roo turned a whole 2 months old on Friday. My baby girl had a big day.
First, it was her favorite puppy's anniversary of joining the family. Such a wonderful decision that we stand by to this day. We just love Maggie Mags so much and couldn't imagine our life without her!
Second, Ruthie had her 2 month dr.'s appointment on Friday. She is in the 3rd percentile for length and weight and 10th for head circumference. Ruthie was 8 lbs and 20 3/4 inches long and her head circumference was 37.
Third, Ruthie got her first round of shots. She was a trooper and only cried for about 2 minutes afterward and was pretty good the rest of the day probably due to the tylenol! She is still a little puny, but is doing just fine. Today, we actually had some professional pics done of her and she did awesome for the most part. Stephanie Lyell, a local photographer, did the pics and what we saw on the camera screen was amazing and we cannot wait to get the proofs. Stephanie will also be doing some 6th month and one year photos. Yay!
So here are the pics I took of Ruthie on her month-a-birthday:

Mom didn't we just do this yesterday.

ok, I'll smile for you...
but only once.
I'm ready to be finished mom...
Just one more!
Look at those cute feet!
Seriously, was this necessary momma!
So today, we decided to try the Bumbo. She doesn't care for it though. She was crying within seconds of this shot.
Also, right now we are waiting for Aunt Sarah to arrive and had to dress for the occasion. Ruthie was so excited when we told her that Aunt Sarah was coming that she was moved to tears. haha
I will only be doing a month by month update of Ruthie, but don't worry there will still be plenty of pics!

Things for the month:
I got your first big smile on camera!
Momma and Daddy left you for the first time for a date and it was very difficult and we returned in 2 hours!
You took your first road trip to TN.
You met you great great Mamaw and got a 5 generation picture. Not many people in this world will or have met their great great grandparent and we will treasure those pictures forever.
You finally are gaining weight properly.
You went to church for the first time.
You still like swinging.
You had your first cold/allergies.
You and Maggie are becoming even better friends!
You are sleeping so much better. Momma and Daddy are getting at least 4 to 5 hours of straight sleep a night and we are so happy about that!
We love you oh so much and are so happy to be your parents!
