One Week Old

Ruth is one week old! She is so very content and for the past 3 nights, we have enjoyed her 6 hours of sleep stretches during the night. The other kiddos love and adore her. To Rachel it is a reward to hold Ruth (aka, "her baby"). We just can't seem to get enough cuddling time in with our sweet baby girl. At Ruth's doctor visit today, we discovered that she is back up to her birth weight of 8 pounds, 11 ounces which makes me feel like I'm doing my job as her sole food source. She is also measuring an inch and a half longer than at the hospital!

Here is a picture of my "due date buddy". We were both due on April 18th, but yet our babies were born 20 days apart! Cindee found matching outfits for our babies. Here they are on Ruth's first Sunday:



Hannah S. made a beautiful little watermelon hat that fits Ruth perfectly. She wears it all the time!



Here's a picture of our sweet little angel (at least she seems like that for now!):

Congratulations Garth and Becky!!!!!!!!!!! You look so beautiful, Becky, and she is a gorgeous baby!! We absolutely HAVE to get together soon. I can't believe we live so "close" and still are managing to avoid each other. ;) Our baby is due in less than 10 weeks, and we're expecting a girl too. So exciting! Maybe they can be friends. . . .
Love you and miss you - and again SUPER congrats on your beautiful new little lady! :)
