My baby girl turns one tomorrow. I am in complete denial. I can't believe she has gotten so big!!! And yes, I was trying to make a cool video to post with this, and no, I still can't figure out how to work idvd, and so no, there are no pictures. But tomorrow I work and we're packing for Canada, and Thursday morning we are heading out!!! YAY! So no video in the near future.
Sunday we celebrated her birthday at her Grandma Cindy's. I will post pictures of that eventually too. No, she's not walking yet, but she's been so close for so long, she is just a scaredy-pants and won't walk unless her little fingers are wrapped around something.
She loves playing in cupboards, holding her teddy bear, swimming, the stroller, and most of all TALKING. She has her own language. She jabbers for minutes on end. My dad could not believe it when he drove us up to Pineview last week. She seriously will talk for 3-5 minutes straight as if you could understand every single word she is saying. And as soon as you reply, she'll launch into a whole new conversation. It's hilarious.
Other than that, my patients at work still think I look like I'm 12 and don't believe I should be cleaning their teeth, let alone having a baby turning one. I think I agree with them. Where did the time go??? I love you Ruthie! Happy Birthday!!!

|Mom and Baby Ruth|
|Olivia and Lindsay Ann (and Natalie's foot)|
|Wyatt and Kam|
|Ruthie playing in the sand with Eli|
|Devaney and the face she made when I said "cheese!"|
|There were lots of races...and not just normal races. Not sure what this one was, but Olivia and Danica look A.W.E.S.O.M.E.|
|Yay for all the sand I could ever eat!|
|Lots of the races ended in running into Wyatt and a floaty toy.|
|Yes, that is my little brother. But he's pretty much all artificial. haahaa. His knees aren't his anymore, and pretty soon his wrist and hand will be all reconstructed. Haahaa.|
|More floaty toy races.|
|This was our great spot on the beach.|
|Tim and Harriet enjoying the waves.|
|Ruthie enjoying a spoonful of sand. Yum!|
|Wyatt and Ethan racing across the beach.|
|Wyatt and Ethan with their sweet paddle boats.|
|More races. Andrea, Myles, Garrett, Danica, Olivia.|
|Everyone splashing into the water at the end of the race.|
|Eli had that princess life jacket on the whole time. Awesome. He also was great at keeping Ruth occupied.|
|The boat coming in for a switch in riders.|
|Olivia, Danica, Myles, Garrett.|
|The cutest babe on the beach.|
|Some of the races involved obstacles, and circling them certain amounts of times. (Not positive, but I'm sure Wyatt must've been part of the creation of these races)|
|Another end to a running race. Kali, Brynne, Anders, Hailey, Lynnaea, Kiersten.|
|Tim and Harriet taking a stroll.|
|I LOVE this picture. Jack-Jack and this truck went everywhere together. So adorable.|
|More Jack and truck.|
|Megan, Natalie, Devaney|
|One of Wyatt's paddle boats drifted really far and we thought we had lost it for awhile. Mom told all the little kids to start walking down the shore and look. Emeline, Jack, Cassidy.|

|Ruthie's teddy bear. She sleeps with him. She carries him around. She absolutely LOVES him. So adorable.|
Sterling came home two days ago with flu-like symptoms. He thinks, because he has a blister on his finger, that it is also hand, foot, and mouth---but, its pretty rare for an adult to get it. Although, he's been running on about 3-4 hours of sleep for the past three weeks, so I guess I'm not that surprised. Wednesday night we all went to bed REALLY early (after having afternoon naps) and Sterling seemed to be doing a lot better the next morning.
HOPEFULLY, we are all over sicknesses here, and we can get back into the normal swing of things. I was getting very, very bored at home. Not that there isn't a million things I could be doing...but didn't want to. Just the fact that I COULDN'T go hang out with people was enough to make we want to. Haahaa.
Other than that, I got Ruth her birthday present from Ikea, and I will post pictures and video soon, she LOVES it! I made muffins today, and bread. And hopefully today I will cut Sterling's hair--it is getting scabacious-looking! Thats all thats been happening here.

|Ruth loved it. She laughed at the water, she laughed at Eli, she laughed at Myles, and she thought it was great fun.|
|Another highlight of the day was the new baby. There are big naming battles going on right now.|
|Myles and Eli kept her pretty occupied. So cute.|
|Mom had us all sing a patriotic song before we could get dessert. SO many kids!!!|
|This is my cousin Clay and his family. They lived in Logan a few years ago when I was still in high school and Devaney was definitely not a teenager yet, time flies! They just moved back and its fun to add another family to the festivities!|
|Chilling with dad who FINALLY emerged with physics homework complete.|
|There was a lot of koob-playing going on, which was lots of fun, and Ruth spent her time watching and eating everything off the sidewalk she could find.|
|A ride with grandpa!|
|And a ride with daddy.|
|It was a perfect 4th of July filled with TONS of partying and the most beautiful little 4th of July girl there ever was.|
