On January 4th, at 1:28 in the morning, Ruby Lu was born. I couldnt be in a more perfect state of bliss.

As most of you know, I already have three boys and so this time, we decided not to find out the sex. I didnt want to feel disappointed at the time of the ultrasound and I knew that when the baby was born, I wouldnt care either way. But I really wanted a girl!

After a very brief but intense labor, the midwife handed me a squirmy, wriggling little girl. We named her Ruby Lu, an old family name on both mine and my husband's side. Thanks so much for all your well wishes and congratulations...and please pardon this brief hiatus as Ruby and I get to know one another.
