This is a picture of our second son, Jason, and my husband, Mark. Mark always tells people you can tell they are related because their ears look just alike.
This is Jason and his wife, Jill. We have known Jill for a long time, as nearly every one of her cousins has spent Monday nights eating at our house and watching Monday Night Football. When they got married, we were thrilled to be honorary parents for Jason. He even ushered us down the aisle.
A week ago Friday, Jason and Jill welcomed a new member to the family. Meet Ruby.

This is already one of my new favorite pictures.
She is just beautiful.
And let's just say that this time I was happy for my procrastinator tendencies. Jason and Jill didn't know whether they were having a boy or a girl, so the nursery was decorated in aqua, grey and red. I was trying to decide what fabrics to use for a gender-neutral quilt. Nothing too flowery since the baby could easily be a boy. Several ideas ran through my head. I had already started a stack of fabric possibilities. But when beautiful Ruby was born, the answer was quite obvious: "Ruby" by Bonnie and Camille. I already had some in my stash, it is the perfect colors and the best part is the perfect name.
Now I know exactly what I'm going to do, and you can be sure that I will incorporate as many of these selvages as possible!
Welcome, sweet Ruby. We love you so much already.
