I can't believe that Ruby is three weeks old! She is such a little gem. EVERYONE loves her very much (sometimes to much) Spencer thinks that she is only his "baby Ruby." He gets very upset when anyone says anything otherwise. She has grown quite a bit and is now weighing in at a hefty 6 1/2 pounds. By the time Ash and Amber get here in a couple weeks she is going to be a full on chunk (at least we are hopeful...)

Here is our little peanut. Words cannot express how small she is.

Ruby showing off her chunky legs. A week ago dad and scott were amazed with how wrinkly and saggy her thighs were. Now they are starting to fill out a bit!!!

Just after a bath. Ruby is a good little mix of our other girls. She looks a lot like McKinley but there are times she reminds me just of McCall. She does have McCall's hair line and we have seen some dimples creeping into those cheeks. It will be fun to see what she ends up looking like. She is so sweet and loves to be cuddled. We love her tons!!!

A Little Setback

Last week Ruby had a few setbacks. She ended up at Primary Children's Hospital from Monday to Wednesday night. The timing couldn't have been better seeing that Monday was the first day of school j/k... But that is the way life goes. We survived thanks to Mom, Grandma Midge, and my great friends. Mike has made it very clear that he is not cut out to be a stay at home dad. Although he was awesome at coordinating everything and having the kids a ton.

Ruby is finally enjoying herself under the lights after being pumped full of IV fluid. She surprised me with how quickly she lost weight and went down hill. When we checked in she had lost over 1 1/2 pounds. She was sooo sunken. I was so greatful for modern medicine and the children's hospital just 15 minutes away!

Finally taking a break from the lights. (She actually loved the lights and hated anyone messing with them...what a bathing beauty!!!)

I love it how they just make a label and tape it to them. No medical bracelet for Ruby!
She is home, gaining weight and doing well... We feel so Blessed!
