Ruth's Arrival

Today at 1:59, our little girl made her entrance into the world. Ashley Ruth weighed in a 8 lbs even and 19 1/2 inches (it's frightful to think what she might have weighed on her due date in 2 1/2 more weeks). She is definately a Cunningham baby, she has the same ears, checks, and shape that Gary and Britt have. However, she has a much broader nose and differently shaped eyes, not sure where that came from. She has a headful of dark brown hair like Gary, like I pictured, and some VERY dark blue eyes like Gary imagined. So far she has been very laid back and mellow. She started eatting as soon as they gave her to me, and has nursed like a champ all day, eatting for 30 to 40 minutes at a time, much quicker than Britt did. She isn't very talkative yet, only fussed once after the nurse came in with all the lights and woke her up for a 4th time in a row. She wasn't alert like Britt and only after several hours could we coax her into opening her eyes up for us to see them. We feel very blessed tonight.
