well hello! i'm baaaaaack. or should i say, WE are back. a very tiny someone joined our family two weeks ago. i am finally getting around to updating and introducing my little bundle of joy. ruby genevieve (or as we like to call her, "ru") was born tuesday 4/9/13 at 11:35pm. my labor was pretty fast and easy and i could not have asked or a better birth experience. we are so in love with ruby and the past two weeks have been the best of my life. i am so glad that she is here and i have been soaking up every sweet second with my girl.
ruby is an absolute dream. i am crossing my fingers that she will keep up her awesome sleeping habits because it has made the adjustment to having a newborn easier than we had planned. right now her favorite activities are eating and sleeping (i mean who doesn't love that combo?) in fact she has been feeding so much lately that we have nicknamed her "ruby on the booby", a nickname i'm sure she will love to be reminded of when she is older.
we have had fun venturing out a little with our babe around seattle, and i have some photos to share later with the highlights. nick has to go back to work on wednesday and i will miss this sweet time we have had together. it will be summer before we know it, and the perks of teacher life mean that ruby and i will have him back again all to ourselves very soon.
here are some photos from ruby's recent newborn shoot. we wanted to get them done in her first few days but alas we had to deal with some mild jaundice, so we had a few more doctor appointments than we had planned and had to push the shoot out.
we are lucky to be friends with the amazing Alex Garland who took these photos for us.
