***This was supposed to post BEFORE we left on our trip to Indiana. It would have helped if I had clicked on "Publish Post" instead of "Save as Draft"! Ruby has her appointment with the dermatologist today as she promised so I will post again later and update on that. You can also expect some posts about our trip...we were BUSY :)
Hey ya'll! Mommy said I could write my own 6 month post because she's busy trying to get the house cleaned up before we go see my great Granny!
I guess by now you know that I turned 6 months old on Sunday the 13th. Wow! Hard to believe I have been around that long already. Seems like just yesterday I was all warm and snug in my mommy's belly without a care in the world. If I had known how crazy it was out here (and how LOUD) I might have tried to stay in that extra week :)
Okay, so, on my ACTUAL 6 month birthday I was blessed to celebrate a VERY special occasion. Want to know what it was? I was baptized!!!!! Yes indeedy. My mommy and daddy and Max, Abby, Lucy, Nana, and Papa came to the church with me and the nice deacon said some very special words. I got oil put on me that my mommy keeps sniffing (Nana said I smell "holy" and I got some water poured on my head (nobody told me I was getting a bath!)
The deacon said more special words and made the sign of the cross over us. He said we (there were two other babies there) are Christians (Catholic) and we have been welcomed into the church. I felt very special and blessed. I can't wait to learn more about God!
After everyone was done we took some pictures...but I really didn't want to look at the camera (I was getting tired).
This is me and Max, Abby, and Lucy with our Nana and Papa.
Nana and Papa a.k.a. my Godparents :)
The best news about my dr. app't (I am trying to forget that I had to get shots!), my dr. said mommy can start giving me REAL food!!!!! He told her before to wait until 6 months because of my eczema (I have to go to a derma...derma...hey, mommy, what's that skin doctor called again? oh yeah, a dermatologist...on the 28th).
Well, I hafta go now but Mommy said I could put a video of me on here too! It's of me doing two of my most favorite tricks...sucking my big toe and blowing raspberries :) ENJOY!
*** I do not help Ruby get her toes to her mouth. She just grabs hold and pulls it up herself. Limber little thing isn't she?
