She arrived-----Ruby Gail Lee

Grandma Gail is rejoicing in heaven as she welcomes Ruby Gail Lee today.  Ruby arrived at 10:01 today.  She weighed in at 8 lb 6 oz and stood tall at 19 1/2".  I should add that Ruby was Aaron's grandma Lee's name and of course we all know Gail.   Aaron said everyone is doing fine.  I had to have a short tear session as I could not welcome the news with my Gail but I do rejoice for Aaron/Amy.  Aaron sounded so excited and happy.
I don't know who Aaron has been able to call at this point but he said it was fine to put it on the blog.  Amy's parents are driving to Madison now and Cynthia stayed there last night and she took Leo to day care before she left for the funeral.  It certainly sounds like a family approach to new life and I am so excited to now have Henry, Liam, Leo, Faustina, Audrey, Jude and Ruby.  I would say there is not a boring or mundane name in the bunch!!!  I am not sure how to celebrate but I will think of something to do for the special occasion.  Maybe I will have a hamburger for lunch!
I just knew the baby would come today.  I had a difficult morning.  It was one of those mornings where I could not get Gail off my mind.  I wanted to hold her, I wanted to kiss her, I wanted to look into her eyes, I wanted to tell her how much I loved her so to hear of the birth of Ruby Gail it made my day.  I will be so excited to see a picture  and then to travel to Madison in a couple of weeks to see Ruby.

Congratulations Everyone! I shed a tear or two also. But Gail is definitely rejoicing with all of you and I know she will be watching over her namesake.

Wow! Congratulations to all! Both Gail and Mom are pretty proud today! What a wonderful day with everyone doing well.
It could be scary though since that would be my namesake as well, she may take on one or two characteristics known to me! Can hardly wait to see pictures.
Love, Helen
