SO much has happened in the past two months I don't know where to start. We moved to Utah, found a doctor/hospital, found a home/moved in, had a baby, celebrated Halloween, and here we are.
On October 30th at 8:34am, Ruby was born! She was 6 lbs, 10oz and 19 inches long. She was a week early, and I couldn't be happier with how her delivery went. It was almost identical to Bradleys delivery. I started contracting at home around 12:30am, had my epidural a couple hours later, and she was out in 2 pushes! It was great. The only hiccup was the Doctors needed 4 tries to get my IV in correctly, which hurt almost more than a contraction.
She is so peaceful and brings such a special spirit into our home. I was worried Bradley wasn't going to handle having a sister very well, but he is so helpful. Every time she cries he'll find her pacifier and hand it to her. He brings her her blanket and always says "hi" in the mornings. He really is the sweetest big brother and I feel so blessed to have 2 amazing children. Adam has been such a GREAT help and so habe my parents. We live about 10 minutes from my parents home, which is great because Bradley loves hanging out at their house.
Life is getting busier, but the transition has been wonderful. I love being a mom and can't wait to see them grow up!

I'm so happy she's here safe and sound and that everything went smoothly! I only wish I lived closer so I could bring you some frozen yogurt and get to hold her myself. You are superwoman and I miss you and love you. XOXO!
