Pink is Sweet

My first granddaughter,Ruby Elizabeth was born into her new pink world last Friday, January 27th. 
Having two older brothers with all things boy, she will be up to her neck in ruffles and lace.

Big brother, Jackson, is four.
 He had LOTS of questions about how she got here...
Big brother Ben said she sure was HEavY. 
(She weighed 6 lbs 9 oz when she was born....)

We thought it would be a good idea to take some group pictures of all three in the backyard. At first it appeared that the boys would cooperate and it would be a piece of cake to get the perfect photo. That didn't last long.

The next thing we knew, Jackson was making faces and Ben was taking a bite out of a leaf, which he had already offered to Ruby. Ruby just started sucking her thumb. That third baby is always easy going. Now you see why.
Finally, we tried our best to get a family photo. It may not be perfect, but it captured the moment.
 So precious...
