Ruby’s (not Chandler) Birthday

Big milestone: it’s Little Ruby’s 2nd birthday! I call her “Little Ruby” to distinguish her from Ruby Chandler. Who isn’t exactly big, but you know… Anyway, here’s the birthday girl!

Here’s the whole family.

Yen was very excited to discover that Ruby seems to be more into fruits than sweets. She did accept the little piece of chocolate that came on top of the cake, though.

Ruby absolutely loves Cô Betty. “Cô” is the word for aunt when that person is younger than your parents. Yen and I are Bác Yen and Bác Kate (Bác works for both genders). Yen is older than Ruby’s parents, but I’m not. But the wife gets the same title as the husband. It’s kind of not fair, really. It makes me older!

Here’s Ruby with her birthday crown. Yen pointed out that she kind of looks like the Pope.

This picture really cracked me up. She cracking up while getting her hair fixed. Again.

Come to think of it, she did a lot of cracking up today.

After I asked very nicely, she agreed to model her Halloween costume for us. I just love the little stinger.

I had so much fun playing with her. Toward the end of the afternoon, she kept coming over to hug me. So sweet.

Hm. Some of these are out of order. I’m sorry, everyone. I’m very lazy tonight and don’t feel like fixing them.
