Ruby's Arrival

My sweet niece, Ruby Jane, was born last Wednesday (March 7). She weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. and was 21 inches. She was born via C-section, and the doctor had a bit of trouble getting her out, so he had to use the vacuum to suck her out. Ruby also inhaled a bit of fluid during the ordeal, which caused her to turn purple, but after getting a little oxygen, she pinked up. Here she is, just minutes old:
 
Proud parents:
Comparing Ruby to newborn pictures of Christian. In the second picture, it looks like Ruby is making the same face as Christian:
My mom and I went to the hospital to visit Chandra the next day:
Here's Chandra looking beautiful:
Joe took Christian to the hospital to meet Ruby the day after she was born:
All dressed and ready to go home:
Chandra's first stop after leaving the hospital was my house. I didn't mind getting to hold Ruby. I've got to enjoy holding her as much as I can, because before I know it she will be too heavy for me to have on my lap.
Welcome to the world and the family, Ruby!
