Ruby Jean Bulthuis

I think that I have been waiting for this monumental event to post a blog entry. She has arrived: Granddaughter #2, Ruby Jean Bulthuis. Early Wednesday morning (2:00) Jenny awoke to four minute contractions. She and Bjorn rushed to the hospital, leaving Ada under the care of Guncle John. Ruby made her entry at 4:38 am, 7 lbs. 9 ounces, 20 inches of dutch/scandinavian gemstone. Mother and baby are healthy and were home the next day. Ada is quite thrilled with her new sister. She serenades her with as much noise as possible. Jenny picked the name much to Bjorn's pleasure as he now has two daughters with computer language names. She is also endeared to the extended Bulthuis family as my grandmother's name was Ruby Elenbaas. 'Jean' comes from Jenny's father. Esther, Markus and I are spending the weekend get acquainted to the new Bulthuis girl.
