I finished grading portfolios, photobooks and websites during finals week, and made it to Boise a few hours after Ruby was born. She weighed in at 8 lbs. 6 ounces with lots of thick, dark hair. Her mother had long, blonde hair, when she was born. Perhaps not quite as thick, but a little longer (1-1/2 inches!)  We think she looks more like the Hafens side, but that is a beautiful thing, for sure!  I had fun taking these photos during the first day of Ruby’s darling little life!  Janel looked amazing right after the birth, and said it was her easiest labor and delivery yet. The boys were excited, each in their own way.
