Welcome home Ruby Ann!!!


Welcome home Miss Ruby Ann!!! Our beautiful daughter was born on October 1st, 2008 at 6:28 in the evening. She weighed in at an even 8 pounds and was 20 and 1/4 inches long. Her apgar score was a 9 / 9 - which basically means all her functions were great at birth and remained great into the real world. There is so much to tell but it will have to wait until a later date so I can get back to being a new mom - I just wanted to post a few pictures and give a quick update. I promise to update with more of the details at a later date, just know the whole induction process went almost as well as we could have hoped and wasn't nearly as traumatic as I thought it was going to be. Morning sickness was MUCH worse than labor and delivery, if that says anything! On to the short story in pictures and stay tuned for future updates.

Here is mom during the day, just waiting for things to happen. The epidural was wonderful, although I started to have mental issues with not being able to move my legs - and by this I mean I was starting to go a little stir crazy.

Mom and Ruby after the birth and initial cleaning.
Dad putting on the first diaper; needless to say Ruby was already crying. She continues NOT to like having a diaper put on.
Our first family photo.

Just Ruby.
Ruby's first car ride home, I think dad was tempted to drive 10 miles an hour all the way there! It's about time SOMETHING helped him be more cautious. (Don't tell him I said that!!!)


Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes! Off to be a family...
