How could I have forgotten?!

How could I have forgotten to tell you that it my youngest granddaughter's first birthday today?!  Happy birthday little Ruby Violet.  She has been crawling since she was seven months old and walking round the furniture since she was eight months, so we really thought that she would have been walking for her first birthday, but not so!  She is standing unaided, but has yet to make those first tentative steps on her own.  My daughter and son-in-law in Paris were very much hoping that it was going to happen whilst we were over there with them!


You can't really see her very well, because Ruby is all wrapped up against the bitterly cold weather whilst we were in Paris.

This time last Christmas, we were all on tenterhooks, because we knew that the new arrival was due at any time, but our daughter was determined that she wasn't going to miss Christmas, so the little one arrived just four days after Christmas day.

Here is my other gorgeous granddaughter!

That sounds like my little Hope~ she is 8 months, standing & gliding.. I keep wondering when she is going to start walking & still can't believe how early she is moving around! Happy, happy birthday Ruby Violet!!

Thisisme said...

Thank you Kelly! It is very early for them to be moving around, isn't it?! Make the most of little Hope, because they grow away so quickly!

Happy birthday, Ruby Violet! She's a cutie pie! Perhaps someday she will watch my all time favorite movie about a young woman named Ruby Gissing, the Ashley Judd film entitled Ruby in Paradise.

Happy 1 to that little sweetie pie. She looks so cute all bundled up. I can't get over how much the older granddaughter looks like you. At least from the pictures we've seen of youi. She's adorable but that shouldn't surprise us!

Thisisme said...

Bouncin'Barb = thank you. She is very cute. Yes, adorable, just like her grandma - LOL!!!!

Happy Birthday to your lovely granddaughter. I am sure she will be walking soon and then there will be no stopping her!

Thisisme said...

Happy Birthday, Ruby Violet. Violet was my grandmother's name. Ruby looks so cute on the merry-go-round. I loved them when I was a child, I wish we had one in our city.

Thisisme said...

Belle - thank you. Violet was Ruby's daddy's grandma's name, so it's quite sweet to follow it on and, strangely enough, violets were my mum's favourite flower. I think the carousel was only put up because it was Christmas.

Annie Joy said...

Granddaughters are a special gift from God, aren't they? (Grandsons, too!) Happy birthday to Ruby Violet and congratulations to you for having two beautiful legacies! I'm happy to know that you had a wonderful Christmas! Annie

Thisisme said...

Annie - yes, they certainly are a special gift from God! I've got my little two year old grandson as well, so how blessed am I?!
