Ruby’s Meme

I had a contest on my photography page for the perfect meme caption for this hilarious photo. Brenda Shimoda came up with the best one and she won a free mini session! Super cute idea.

6 weeks old!

My little beauty is 6 weeks old! She’s no longer a newborn and as always that makes me a bit teary. I adore her and I love how expressive she’s becoming.

Rani’s team took high score and overall studio trophies and Rani won 5th place over all the competitions and eared a superstar trophy! So proud of my girl!

Rani’s first pointe shoes

Rani was so excited earlier this year when her ballet teacher gave her the letter that said she was ready for pointe shoes! She’s only been working at the barre with them and only for a couple of months so this photo session was really hard since she has a hard time staying balanced on her boxes! These turned out so beautifully. We had Brekke Felt of Studio 15 Portraits do these and we are so happy with them!

Four Weeks Old

Ruby is four weeks old tomorrow and all of a sudden she’s lost her chubby cheeks! She has become so much more expressive and she’s so sweet. I am so happy she doesn’t have bad acne like my other kids. Look at her pretty skin!

First Big Outing- Gateway Children’s Museum.

We took Ruby out for her first big outing today. We went to the Gateway Children’s Museum. The girls had a blast there! First a princess birthday party for their friend, E, and then playtime in all the fun areas! I wish we had a place like this closer to our house. I was filled with joy watching my girls play so hard and I realized it has been so long since we have done anything like this with them!
