Our sweet little girl is here. Little Ruby was born on February 8, 2013 in the wee hours of the morning and weighed 7lb 13oz and was 20 in long. Everything went well with her birth. She was 8 days late and I went to the ob that morning only to find out that nothing much was happening. I decided to try to move things a long a bit and literally walked about 3 and 1/2 miles that day. I also made lemon drop cupcakes. We have a cupcake place here that swears by their lemon cupcakes for inducing labor so I figured it couldn't hurt. By around 6:15 pm that evening I started having contractions every 5 minutes and was instantly in full labor so something worked. It must have been the cupcakes. Everything went well with little sweetie at the hospital and we were able to come home quickly. I did wind up with a crazy postpartum rash which nearly drove me insane with itching and lasted for about 8 weeks but other than that recovery was fine. J has been an awesome big brother which is great and I am happy he loves his little sister so much already. We were extremely lucky to have a wonderful photographer friend of ours take photos of our sweetie as a newborn She is going to take more photos at around 4, 8 and 12 months. I am so lucky!! The photos are fabulous as you can see. Amy is starting her photography business and I will add a link to her website as soon it is ready. And yes I am starting to sew again. I am making more cloth diapers and why I didn't make bigger cloth diapers when I had the chance is a mystery. My fluffy little sweetie grew out of the newborn diapers in about a month and I am still scrambling to make more. I have also added a few photos of little sweetie in her flower newborn gown and swaddle I made for her before she was born. Well, on to the lovely photos of my sweet little girl.
