Ruby Ann Harrel is Here!

My plan was to post pictures of our precious new granddaughter - but my aspirations out distanced my abilities - and of course I do not know how to post pictures on Josh and Annie's computer. Ruby Ann Harrel arrived about 7:30 am this morning, weighing in a 7 pounds 4 ounces and is 19 inches long. She has an abundance of dark hair and is absolutely adorable. Poor Cooper can't get near her yet as he is suffering from a lung infection and that has been the only damper on the event. He has been a good sport about it (especially considering that he is only three years old) and Lily is over the moon about her little sister. She wants to do everything for her. I got to give Ruby her first bottle, which she chugged like a true champion. I was also gifted with the honor of changing her first messy diaper - she managed that like a champ also :) I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how - as you can imagine I've already taken about a hundred. Stay tuned....
