Why yes... yes she was.
She was more than worth the wait.
She has long long fingers, has her daddy and mommy wrapped around them.
She's the MOST beautiful baby in the history of the universe. Seriously. She is she really really is.
Of course her coming home outfit was hand knitted. Soaker by the amazing Aunt Mary, sweater/hat/booties combo by mom.
Daddy has already put her to work helping out in the yard.
Her birth wasn't all we had hoped it would be. We had a beautiful labor at home, and then pushed for an excruciating 13 hours before we realized that she just was stuck and not coming out. So... we ended up having a c-section. As sad as we are to not have had our dream home birth, and as difficult as the hospital stay was, she of course was worth every push, and every staple in my belly. It will take a while for us to get over it, but in the mean time... we've got these chubby cheeks to love on and this little feet to snorkel.
Stay tuned for more Ruby. All Ruby, all the time.
