Baby Ruby is finally here!!!

Ruby Rasmussen
Born June 20th, 2006
8lbs, 9oz
19 inches

BEAUTIFUL, Perfect. We are in complete and utter amazement of her. She hasn't been out in the world for 24 hours and it feels like she's always been here. Birth story to follow shortly after mom gets some much needed rest (this post being brought to you by the proud poppa). Just know that this wife of mine is one amazing, strong, courageous woman. How did I get so lucky?!? There aren't words to describe how proud I am of her and how so completely in love I am with her and our sweet little Ruby. The babe doesn't cry much (unless she needs a diaper changed), but even when she does it's one of the sweetest sounds in the world to me. Enjoy the pix.....more to come shortly.

Auntie Kori and Uncle Ryan~
There are not enough words in all the world to discribe how happy I am that Ruby is here! I am so excited, happy, exultant, blissful, delighted, thrilled and anyother world that can discrribe a niece who is an proud and envious of her Aunt and Uncle! I am here for you need ANYTHING! I may be young, skinny, scrony, not the sharpest tool in the shead ... but I love you and "Roobie Loobie" Goonie (That's my new nick name for her! And when/if (teehee) she ever grows boobs IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT! ... JUST THINK OF THE ENDLESS POSSIBLITIES! ... Only if you let me of course!) Thank you so much for her you are going to be amazing parents!

Angie said...

She's gorgeous! I'm so glad to hear things went well. Can't wait to hear more. Give Korin a big hug and sweet kisses for Ruby.

It's a first but I'm utterly speechless. My heart is overflowing and I can't wait to hold you ALL in my arms! I know little Ruby will change the world one day and even if she doesn't I know she'll ROCK your world!

I love you all! See you soon!

Way to go Kori & Ryan! So happy for you! I hope your recovery is going well, and that you guys are getting at least a little bit of sleep. Good wishes for the amazing journey you're about to embark on.

And Kelcie -- Roobie Loobie? please no. "Ruby Roo" is a far superior nickname.

So pretty...(Mom and Baby look great too!).

Good job you two, as euphoric as this moment is, every day, week and month forward gets even better.

On a side note, and I can't be the first to mention this, she was born on a Tuesday. A great middle name equipped with an awesome theme song.

Get some rest, you three have a lifetime of happiness ahead of you.

Wow. What a process! I didn't realize she was late in coming. Though you are quite right, babies are born when they are ready! But that explains the almost 9 lbs.! I'll keep checking the blog to see how things progress! Take good care!!!
