Day 21. Today (and everyday) I am thankful for this little sleeping beauty. I swear, her sweet little spirit was meant to be a part of our family at this time. The Man upstairs must have known that life was going to be crazy for the Powell Pack when she made it into this world. He must’ve taught her to be patient, sweet, mellow, mild-mannered, and cuddly (which Mom needs ). She is all of these things and so, so much more. I love our Ruby Lane .

Ruby Lane Powell has arrived, and we are over the moon for this little ray of sunshine ☺.
Many of you are asking if we have a winner for the guessing game of Ruby’s arrival date and time, and I am here to tell you…YES! We do☺.
The winner of the $500 Reebok gift card (who I may add, guessed the exact time AND date within the first 10 minutes of the Guessing Game beginning) is…

This post was created about 30 minutes before my water broke at home last Saturday morning . Because a trip to the hospital was in order, it was clearly never posted. But I really do think this may have done the trick! It’s funny to read this post, knowing so much was just on the cusp of happening…and at the time I had no idea.
Blog post, typed just hours before Ruby was born, below.
PS – I am counting this as Days 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 that I missed during labor and recovery. Little Miss Ruby has given me so much to be thankful for in this Month of Thanks, I believe this is warranted .
Yesterday’s was amazing.
Once I realized that no amount of physical activity, hiking, jumping, or sex (sorry if TMI, but many of you suggested it!) could put me into labor, I decided to take a shot in the other direction with some much-needed “rest and relaxtion”. “Maybe THIS will do it for me,” I thought.
I called our amazing massage therapist and she made it to our home within 3 hours to do the job . It. Was. The. Most. Amazing. Massage. Ever. Maybe because my body has been in need for so long, or maybe because I was so tired…or maybe because Jenn has magic hands! I don’t know, but I will tell you this…I am SO thankful for yesterday’s massage.
Let’s hope the R&R did the trick! The clock is ticking…no baby yet…
