While I'm at it I wish a speedy recovery to Meghan from having an 8lb 2oz. baby! Congratulations Olsen's!
I won't be kidding when I invite you to my daughter's birthday party next May 3rd!(Ben's B-Day) I knew they were going to have a girl.
Girls rock! Much more than Dawson!

How soon can Olsen's new kid suit up for DCU?

From Donald Fagen:

Each time I see you baby my heart cries
I'm gonna steal you away from all those guys
From the sunny day I met you
Made a bet that I would get you
Ruby Ruby Ruby baby
When will you be mine


Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Olsen and their Ruby Baby....

Ruby?!?!?

Posted by: owendylan | October 1, 2008 8:37 PM | Report abuse

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Congratulations, Benny and Meghan!! Hello and a warm welcome to Ruby.

God bless you guys.

9/30 is a great soccer birth date. Ruby will be a U-1 for almost a full year, until next August 1.

Posted by: OWNTF | October 2, 2008 11:58 AM | Report abuse

Actually, one's age on January 1 determines one's status for the year to come. Thus, Ruby will be a U-1 through December 2009.
