Well, I am now a month late, but I thought I’d officially share our news that Ruby Sue made it safely into our family on February 23rd:) She came fast I tell you…a little too fast for this momma! I always thought that when people said their deliveries were so fast it was a good thing. NOT. SO. I mean, yay for no 24 hour laboring…but holy moly the intenseness is just that. INTENSE!
I went from my contractions being 6 minutes apart to 2 minutes within 15 minutes. Ryan may or may not have driven 90 mph and went through one (or two) red lights. whoops! I think the cops would have understood. I was white knuckling it the whole drive. We got to the hospital and I instantly asked for drugs:) Cause that’s how I roll. I missed the chance with Beckett and I did not want that to happen again! So they gave me an epidural at a 9, and I pushed two contractions later…45 minutes after getting to the hospital. Whoa, that was close. I’m happy to report that the drugs kicked in just enough to take the burn off during pushing:) Phew!
So we say hello to the final member of our family (unless God has other plans;) Ruby Sue..
Your mommy loves you!
and your sister…
for now we’ll just snuggle you…
and kiss your sweet little head:)
oh…and lay you on signs and shove you in buckets…
For those who have been asking if I have Ruby’s nursery done, the answer is no….because there is no room for Ruby:) Shes currently in a bassinet in our room. But we have some exciting news! This spring we are adding on to our house, and I couldnt be happier!! Here’s a sneak peek of the exterior and I’ll share more details soon!
The whole left wing is the addition, which will give us much needed living and storage space! Wohoo!! I can’t wait to share our design and ideas with you:)
As always, a HUGE shout out to Sarah Pollio Photography for these great images!!
