Ruby Ann!!!!

Hi everyone, and sorry for the delay on the news and pictures!
For those of you who haven't heard, our darling daughter, Ruby Ann, was born Monday morning around 6:35 am. She was 7 lbs, 11 oz (one ounce smaller than Rae) and 20 3/4 inches long. I started having contractions around midnight and by the time we got to the hospital, I was already quite far along! I only had to push for 15 minutes (a HUGE difference from the 2.5 hours of pushing I did with Rae!) and there she was, beautiful little Ruby.
She has been healthy and wonderful from the get-go and is nursing like a true champion. We got home tonight (Tuesday) around 7:15 pm. Rae LOVES her little sister and always asks to "hold you." She gives her kisses and helps me with diaper changes (bringing the diapers, throwing the dirty ones away...). We are believing God for a smooth transition for all of us.
Anyhow, I'll stop typing and give you what you really want: pictures! Thanks to all of you for your prayers, wishes and love!
