chefs ava and ruby...

It's been so fun for me to watch the transformation that has taken place in Ruby. A few months back, she couldn't have cared less about having friends. We have had several opportunities to watch different girls around Ruby's age, but it hasn't been until recently that she has become very fond of the idea of having a playmate...other than herself.

Today we had Ruby's friend Ava over while her mom went to a Dr. appointment. Ruby and Ava developed a cute little friendship a couple of weeks ago when Ruby went over to their house to play. Ever Since then, Ruby's face literally lights up whenever she sees Ava...even if it's just through a picture displayed on her mom's blog.

Today the two of them helped me bake cookies...



And watched some Baby Signing Time...


(look at both of them fully enthralled...each with a finger in her mouth)

They even helped me clean up in the kitchen afterwards...



Ava came over for a second time today with her parents, and as they were leaving, Ruby threw one of the worst tantrums I've ever witnessed. She was completely inconsolable for a good 10 to 15 minutes.

Well anyway, I think it's safe to say that Ruby loves her little friends.
