Who puts a black bow on a newborn? Odd.

The Powell Pack looks great! I am a big fan of Chris (and Heidi). Congratulations on the newest bundle of joy!

Katt B – This is his second child. Cash (the two years old) is his first.

RE The black hair bow: On Chris’s FB page it is more a dark teal color.

Congratulations! But what’s up with the stupid bow? She is a gorgeous newborn baby, she doesn’t need any embellishment. It just looks dumb. Not to mention unsafe, and about to poke one of her eyes out.
The baby is adorable and the couple looks awesome. I hope mom feels as good as she looks. I would love to have looked that great after just having given birth!

I am more than just a little shocked by the Name Ruby Lane as there is a store with that name. Google it online and you will find a online store that sells a little of this and that.

I can understand the little girl, less competition for the throne and a balance in the home. However, i think george might enjoy a little boy to play with. I vote for a boy.
