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!

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!):
