First Sleepover with Gamma & Papa

I'm back! I'm here! I've been busy taking care of mama. She's been very sick with this 2nd pregnancy :(
Not much going on here...just enjoying the warmer weather. Well, it's not warm, warm but it's getting there! I've been able to play outside a few times and I love that!
Mom and dad went on their very first date last weekend without me. It was mom's first time in over 2 years...leaving me for the night. Gamma and Papa came over and stayed with me and I did great! I had such a good time with them. Mom cried for the first 30 minutes or so down the road but then she was fine. I think her and daddy had a good time ;)

And...there's ONE baby in there!!!!

Hey guys! Today was an AMAZING day for the Ruffing family...a long day...but a very special day :) Mommy got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time today...I think it made things more real for her. Mom is 9 weeks and 2 days. Baby Ruffing is due August and dad's 5th wedding ironic is that? Dr said everything looked great and the baby is doing awesome!
I had my 2 yr checkup today which dad took me to since mom was at her appt. I hit all of my milestones except for jumping. That's okay though - we're working on that in PT with Martha and I know, just know, that I am going to get it down one of these days! I'm in the 75th percentile for height, 50th for weight and 10 for head. I have a small head like my great grandpa Gourley :)
I think the biggest news of all that I can't wait to share with this...I had my CPK levels drawn today for the 3rd time...and they were normal! This is wonderful news for all of you know what's been going on. Mom has been praying like she's never prayed before in her whole life and those prayers were answered today...thank you God!!!! Dr says she's happy with the results and is no longer concerned at this point. What a truly amazing, miraculous day. Thank you to everyone who has been thinking about me and praying for me through all of this. I love you :)

I'm Going to be a Big Brother :)

I know mom and I haven't posted in a while but it's only because mom has been really sick :( but for good reasons...


Mom has her 2nd doctor's appointment on Monday (17th) and it will be her first time seeing my little baby brother or sister :) Let's just hope there's only ONE baby in her belly...

Happy 2nd Birthday to Me!

My 2nd birthday was a success :) We made it through the day without mom crying (about me getting older). I had PT this morning. Martha brought me this really cool truck for my birthday present. Thanks Martha! After that, mom took me to storytime at the library where everyone sang happy birthday to me :) We went home...picked up a bit...made lunch for dad...then mom and I napped for about 2 hrs. It was so nice to snuggle up with her :) When I woke up we made my birthday cake together. Mom had just picked up a box of Swiss Rolls that she was going to put a candle in because she didn't want to have a whole sheet cake lying around in the house when we're going to have a big one on Saturday...but after talking with Grandma from Massachusetts...mama had a change of heart. And so...we made chocolate cake with confetti frosting...yummo! When dad got home we all skyped with Grandpa and Grandma Longley. They had shipped a box full of birthday presents to me and I've been itching to open it...and I finally got to tonight! I opened it right in front of them when we were skyping tonight. It was awesome :)

It's Almost My Birthday!

I'm going to be 2 next week...can you believe it? Mom already has everything's going to be a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme and I can't wait! I just wish my family from Massachusetts could be there as well as my family in Iowa!
Did I tell you that my grandma from Massachusetts came out to see me from Mass.? We had such a good time together.
Not much else going on...just getting ready for Christmas and baking lots of sweets :)

Thank You Shutterfly!

We just received our beautiful Christmas cards last night from Shutterfly. If you read in one of my earlier posts, I mentioned that mom and I had ordered our cards from them this year. Let me tell you, they did not disappoint! They're so cute :)

I think mom ended up saving over a hundred dollars on these cards...she ended up paying a little over $8 for shipping and that's it! What a deal! Please go to Shutterfly and make your own Christmas's worth it!
