This past month Rue learned how to shake but she’s still working on crawl. She had her first Turkey dinner. And she still throws up in the car. It was a rough month for casualties at the Crooks Household: one laptop computer cord, a favorite sports bra, holes in another work out tank, and that pointless layer of cloth that covers stuff on the bottom side of the bed mattress? Gone. We’re venturing into Christmas tree territory this weekend but she’s already had her share of Christmas lights. She still loves to cuddle and to burn energy she runs circles around the coffee table. Our Life with Rue is good.
