She weighed in at 6 lb. 4 oz. and 19.5” long. So she’s just a teeny little girl. Dillon took some really great pictures—I was proud of him for doing so well! And this is only about a tenth of them!
My amazing doctor did a great job on the c-section, along with the others in the room—they all did great. This was the best experience out of the three sections. Though I am still very sore and walk like a really (really really) old woman, I am recovering well and Ruby is doing great.
Out of all four of my children, she was by far the saddest after birth. She had the whole room chuckling with her squawking. The funniest is when she didn’t cry for a shot, but then they put the beanie on her head and it was the end of the world.
I finally got to see her and hold her! Until then, I just had to watch through the little mirror you see in the picture two above.
We all just adore her to pieces. It’s so cute hearing the kids call her Ruby. Poppy calls her Ruby Ruby Rube. And they all sing to her.
(Thanks to my sister Rachelle who took the next 5 pictures!)
