She's finally here!

I got a phone call in the middle of the night last night.  Laura was ready to head to the hospital.  I picked Alaina up at 2am, they made it to the hospital at 2:30 and the baby was born at 3:30am.  That's cutting it a little close for me!
We brought Alaina up to meet her Wednesday morning.  Here are some pictures.

We're thanking God for the precious gift of Ruby June Ras
7'11"
21 inches


She has lots of hair, and dimples when she wiggles her face.



 Alaina meeting her sister for the first time.


 Grandpa is already a goner!


Alaina wanted to take her home with us.



A sister is a special gift!

I'm taking some vacation days and Alaina is staying with us, so I'm taking a little blogging break.
I'll see you next week sometime.
