Happy girl, originally uploaded by rutty. 17/365 We have a happy little girl. She has her moments, of course, but in general we’re extremely lucky to have a calm, contented little baby. We’ve been loosely following the teachings of the one and only (and much derided) Gina Ford. We’ve found her Contented Little Baby book…… Continue reading Happy girl
Serious face, originally uploaded by rutty. 9/365 Ruby is quite the expressive baby. Sometimes. When she wakes up in the morning we get all sorts of faces: happy, sad, surprised etc. When I wave my phone or camera in her face I get this. Mind you, some of my favourite photos of her in the…… Continue reading Serious face
Cheeky, originally uploaded by rutty. 7/365 I’m enjoying using my iPhone as a camera (2 whole megapixels!) but it’s rubbish in low light. As you can see from this effort there’s plenty of grain. However, it’s good to not have to worry about any settings and it’s far more convenient using my phone than lugging…… Continue reading Cheeky
Tickle, originally uploaded by rutty. 2/365 As discussed in day 1, my two girls are the centre of my universe. Jo would rather I didn’t photograph her but Ruby is too young to be shy. Here are both my girls enjoying a moment. Note the hair going into Ruby’s mouth – poor Jo has lost…… Continue reading Tickle
Her Majesty’s room, originally uploaded by rutty. So, 2010 is a brand new year – the first of the “tenties”. Might as well do one of those “take a photo a day for a year” things then eh? The first photo is an image of the doorway to happiness – my three month-old daughter’s bedroom…… Continue reading Her Majesty’s room
Ruby, originally uploaded by rutty. We’ve been to see my Mum at the weekend and so we got to give Ruby her bath there. She quite likes having a little splash about in the water but is sometimes not so impressed with getting dried off afterwards. She was fine last night, though. Here she is…… Continue reading Ruby
2 Months already?, originally uploaded by rutty. Has it been two months since our little girl was born? Crikey, it barely seems a few weeks, but here she is: our Ruby at two months old. She’s thriving too, although a little under the weather today after her ordeal at the vaccination clinic yesterday. She wasn’t…… Continue reading 2 Months already?
Ruby has discovered how to smile!
Just had a bath, originally uploaded by rutty.
I seem to be the only one awake around here. Both my girls are sparko.
Last Thursday a rather amazing thing happened to Jo & me: we had a baby girl! She’s called Ruby Elizabeth and she was a hefty 9lbs on the scales when she arrived. She was 9 days late and poor Jo had to put up with quite the protracted labour – contractions started on Sunday and…… Continue reading I’m a Daddy!
Today, Tuesday the 15th September 2009, is our due date. Our little Ruby is officially ready to be born and I’m about to become a father. Holy shite! Is it nine months gone already? I have little moments of realisation of what is to come. My impending fatherhood, sleepless nights and the responsibility for another…… Continue reading Today’s the day. Or, maybe not
