Welcome Ruby Ray!

Here she is! Ruby Ray Veal was born at 12:38 pm on September 18th. She was 7 lbs even and 19 inches long, I got a small little girl! She was SO NOT a fan of being born! She was literally pushing and kicking back at the doctors during my whole surgery, they thought that was pretty funny!
She has long fingers and TINY feet! She might even be able to fit into newborn booties (unlike another child of mine)! She does have a cute little skin tag on her right ear that will need to be removed in a couple of months.
So far she is very alert and mellow, as long as she is getting what she wants. She already turns her head to look at sounds and loves to be sung to.
Here is the proud big brother! I *think* he loves her, he has already kissed every piece of her exposed skin and likes to put his ear by her face, because she makes "nice noises" He thought it was hilarious the way that I was feeding her, I think a little confused at first, but is ok with it now.

As for me... I have decided that a scheduled c-section is about 100% easier than an emergency-life-or-death one, thank goodness. I was up and showered less than 24 hours after going under! I did get really sick again, but we had anticipated this and I was on some heavy anti-nausea meds, I also had a reaction to one of my painkillers so I was on extra meds for that too. Well, I think thats it for now as my little squeaker is calling for me.


  1. Yay Stephanie! she's beautiful! I bet you're so glad to not be pregnant! CONGRATULATIONS!

  2. Congratulations!! She looks very sweet. Life with 2 is...good. It's gets easier after a month or two. I promise.

  3. She is so adorable and sweet! What a cute brother Ty is! My boys were very confused at first too, I just told them I was feeding the baby special milk and left it at that. :) Congratulations! I'm so glad things were easier for you this time around! Can't wait to meet her!

  4. Ahhhh! She is adorable! But we knew she would be! Glad she and you are ok! How is the new daddy?
