And her name is....

Ruth Alexandra!

If you've known us for any amount of time, you know we don't tell the name until the baby is born.  The reasons we did this, well for surprise, but also to reduce outside influence.  With Ruth, we felt with her struggles before she is even born, and the number of people praying for her, we needed to share her name a little early.  So, surprise!

We've always chosen a middle name for our girls that begins with "A", but also has some family history. Alexander was a little boy my grandmother lost because he was born slightly premature. With today's medicine, he would have survived. We felt it was an appropriate name for our little Ruth.

Quick OB Appt

We had a quick follow up appointment with my OB this morning, she just asked us a lot of questions about what we were planning on doing, what we needed from her, and answered some of our questions.  They did a mini-sono of our baby girl, I got to see her sucking her hand, it was really sweet :-)

MRI in the morning in Dallas, hopefully meet the pediatric neurologist at the same time.
