dirt lover

with the lovely weather that we have been having, i can not help but try to find a million reasons to do everything outside. the air just makes me giddy. apparently Ruby feels the same way about it. she is so content on walks, playing outside, and most fav of all is diggin in the dirt. i let her garden with me this evening and she planted an old dead flower bud in her mouth and when i tried to say no, she looked up at me with the biggest grin...she knows she's trouble! for the most part she just likes to touch and thank goodness eating the dirt is not her favorite part. picking the pretty flowers off the new plants i'm trying to put in can be a bit of a hassle though. i guess she knows what part if the best.

new best friend

so ruby is quite the fan of buddie these days. ever since she learned how to wave...the cutest little hand flap i ever saw, she will wake up in the morning and start waving and look towards the window to outside to try to say 'hi' to him. she will honestly get mad at me if we dont go out and visit him 700 times a day just to say hi, and swing her little legs in super excitement about the guy.
so i decided i should let her have a go at being friends with him. i put her down, and so sad...he didnt really want to have much to do with her, while she is dying to touch him. so i had to put his food right next to her and let her get super excited be his nearness:)
and yes, she tried to have a little lamb n rice snack of her own.
i dont know why i find this so funny; esp when she keeps trying to say his name; it is some form of dada/doggie/and buddie all in one.
