Ruby Roo is one!
We celebrated Ruby's birthday Caribbean style, with close friends and family. Ruby loves people, we have seen this is a part of her personality she is so social. So people around is a plus. This birthday was a little emotional for me, I think its because I have a sense of loss I didn't think it would bother me to celebrate my baby's birthday but it has been bitter sweet for a few reasons. One Hudson never made it to one. Second his birthday is on the 27th and I always stress about not knowing what to do with it. I feel ashamed confessing that because I should be so excited that Ruby is one! The other thing that makes me ache is that a mother on the other part of the world has a sense of loss too. Ruby's birth mother. But you know what Ruby is one, can you see I am talking myself out of getting bummed out. Did you know one out of six babies in Ethiopia never make it to see one?! Ruby is one of the other five. That's a huge deal.
So with some of our loved ones we sang a very happy birthday to this sweet girl, is she so adorable?! Auntie Cindy made this cake thank you so much. And for all the loves ones that helped make this a special.
