Celebrating Baby Ruby - 4/12

On April 12th, we got to celebrate a very special baby girl cooking away in her sweet Mama's belly!  My precious friend/college roommate, Katie, was due to have her first baby in mid-May.  Us 2521 girls were soooo excited about Miss Ruby's upcoming arrival.  :)

Unfortunately, Halie and Laura didn't get to come for our fun weekend.  We missed them so much!  However, I was able to talk Katie, Cindy, and Traci into turning the 2 hour shower into a bit of a roommate weekend.  Yay!  We rented a hotel room and had a good, old fashioned slumber party - just like back in our college days.  Y'all, we had such a great time together!  We talked for hours and hours - it was sooo good for my soul!  I think that the mark of a true friendship is when you can go for months without seeing each other, but pick up right where you left off when you are together.  That's how it is with these girls for me.  We never miss a beat - our bond is just that strong!

We couldn't wait to get our hands on Miss Ruby - literally!
 Katie was such a cute pregnant gal!  She is a gorgeous girl!

Fast forward to May 19th, and Miss Ruby made her arrival.  Yay!  I was so glad that I got to come to the hospital and see that sweet little thing!  She is beautiful - just like her Mama!
 Squishy newborns are the best!  She and I were instant friends.  ;)
Congratulations, Katie and Wes!  Thanks for letting me share in this precious time in your lives!  I am so very thrilled for your family.  :)
