Elizabeth Anne Has Arrived

Peter called to let me know that Elizabeth Anne arrived at 12:47 California time! She was 8 pounds 10.4 ounces, so it's no wonder that Karen was so uncomfortable! She was 19 1/2 inches long, and had an Apgar score of 9.9.

She not only has hair, but it's actually RED! Her eye lashes are extremely light. The nurses said that's a good indication that she will have red hair. We will post pictures when we get some.

Barbie pointed out that Peter and Karen are the only ones in our family who have birthdays on even-numbered days, and now Elizabeth has an even-numbered day also. How fun!

Actually my Mother not only had an even-numbered day, but it was also the 14th. She was born November 14, 1906.

What fun! I've heard that Elizabeth Anne is a popular name. I seem to have reversed it with my daughter: Anna Elisabeth!

Can't wait for pictures!
