sasses...



It's Ruby's very own, very unique way, of saying "glasses" - another of her most recent obsessions. A few weeks ago, she happened upon a pair of newborn sunglasses - a baby shower gift from my sisters, given before Ruby was even born. Being that they were intended for a newborn, they came equipped with a comfortable, cushiony strap designed to fit around the baby's head to hold them in place. Ruby no longer has that tiny newborn head, but has been insistent on wearing the glasses anyway. Most the time they end up just hanging from her neck because they're too uncomfortably tight to wear for long periods of time. But she loves them, nonetheless. Since then, she has discovered other glasses in different styles, shapes, and colors; each of which, at one point, has been considered to be her favorite.

So whether they're too big...


or too small...


or too broken...


or too blurry (because either they're mom's prescription glasses, or they're doubled up with another pair, or both)...


Ruby simply can't live...


...without her "sasses".

That Ruby is too cute for words. I love those strawberry sunglasses she wore when she was with us last Friday! I love that you take pictures of all of the things she does too. They brighten my day!

They say that the will of your child at two is just a glimpse into their will during their teenage years. Between shoes and sasses you guys better plan on a big clothing budget for that little girl :)

And might I add that she looks very "sassy" in her sasses.

Love, love this girl! She's got so much spunk - love it!

Those red strawberry sunglasses she's wearing in the bottom picture are too cute! And her hair looks so pretty in that cute little braid. This girl's got style and personality. I admit I got a little fettish for "sasses" too.
