happy friday + 18 months with ruby…







Happy Friday guys! Our little lady is eighteen months today! The past few months have been so fun as she's been getting more verbal and aware of what's around her. I hear from eighteen months on it gets even better, and I can't wait to see how she amazes us even more with her humor and happiness.

{Ruby's clothes: 15 month dress by Oh Joy, 16 month tee (I made), 17 month dress by Thief & Bandit Kids, 18 month dress from Little Vida.}


  1. Joy!! She is such a doll!! She can’t get any cuter with that sweet little voice! It’s the best thing ever watching little ones grow and learn… Romeo is now pointing to his nose too! I LOVE it 🙂

  2. Ah, ruby is so cute and smart.
    Been great watching her grow and get excited for my 1 year olds development… Mabli is now pointing at her nose 🙂

  3. I aspire to dress my future children as well as you dress Ruby!
    I am a long time follower, first time commenter. Your blog is the best and I love visiting for clothing/interiors/food inspiration! Thank you for your amazing creativity!

  4. She is just so happy and beautiful!
    Thank you so much for sharing her with us.
    (Makes me excited for the day my husband and I decide to add to the fam!)

  5. Hi..
    I love you blog and I absolutely love the planters, care to share where you purchased them? Please share

  6. So cute!! What a smart cookie!! My son is almost two weeks younger than Ruby 🙂 I also just watched the video of her blowing bubbles and I love her blue kitchen set and was wondering where it’s from?

  7. So true that it just gets better from here on out! The things they say just keep surprising you. Happy 18 months to Ruby 😉

  8. EEEK! Ruby is the cutest! 🙂 AND YES, it keeps getting better after 18 months. ha, we’re just at 19 months with my son but things really are getting fun. I think they get less frustrated as they can talk, and they really do say the funniest things.
    We celebrated 19 months with a new TODDLER MOHAWK, ha. Of course, right? 🙂 (Think you’d enjoy checking out the “do”) 😉
    I’m so impressed that you’ve kept up with these photos. And I LOVE how to capture so much PERSONALITY in each pic. 🙂
    Have a great weekend!

  9. Hi Joy!
    Commenting for the first time at any blog!! Wanted to let you know that the photos and videos of Ruby literally make my day. She is so adorable (even when she’s throwing a tantrum) Your style is also amazing, I live far away in Singapore.. the only thing keeping me away from your garage sales. Good luck with your office space, I’m sure it will be amazing!
    Sending all the good vibes! 🙂

  10. Aww, so cute, she’s getting so big! This makes me want my own baby! My husband says we have to deck out his jeep first because we’ll be broke once we have a kid. Haha I gave him a year. 😉

  11. As a Mama of a 20 month old, I can say that things happen very quickly! It’s amazing how much baby’s language develops from this point forward.
    PS. Love the painting in your pics!

  12. My youngest is 14.5 months and Ruby always seemed so much older, but I think they’re getting to the age where they just look like toddlers 🙂 Ruby is too cute.

  13. She is DARLING! Oh my gosh… what a cutie! 🙂 It is impossible to watch that video and not smile! 🙂

  14. She is definitely a cutie and you have a very good eye for a good picture.. with all the colours and the whole framing, excellent 🙂

  15. Oh my word, she’s so adorable! I really love to see her giggling. Happy 18 months, Ruby! Big hug from Indonesia. 😀
