Last night was a long night.
I'm so proud of these new parents. Thanks for letting me in on the action!
I think these photos can speak for themselves....

Things got pretty intense and after laboring for 24 hours, little Ruby was to arrive by emergency C-section. We were all waiting for what seemed like hours. There were some crazy emotions during those moments.

So happy to hear that baby cry!
