We are so happy to have our little Ruby with us. She was born on September 14th at 3:07 pm. She weighed 6 lbs. 15 oz, and was 19 inches long. I was having contractions early Wednesday morning and when I got to the hospital to be induced my contractions were about 3 minutes apart, and I was dilated to a 4. We were off to a good start. I got hooked up to the pitocin around 10 am to get things going. After a while of waiting and contractions getting stronger I got my epidural and then the doctor broke my water. After that it wasn't too long before it was time to push. I pushed for a whole 7 minutes and our beautiful baby girl was born. Pretty uneventful....besides the fact that her umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice. She was breathing fine, and it wasn't too tight, so luckily things were under control. We were grateful that she came out so healthy. It is nice to be home. Gavin is loving his new baby sister. He loves to help wrap her in her blanket, give her kisses, and shows us where her head, eyes, nose etc...are.
Ruby is a great baby so far. She sleeps, and sleeps and sleeps, and is pretty content and calm. There is nothing like a brand new little baby to smell and snuggle.
