Boys: 1, Girls: 12

The boy child has a baby sister!

After astounding us all by producing a son on her first go-round two years ago, my sister-cousin Kerry followed up on Tuesday evening with a gorgeous baby girl. The lovely Ms. Keara brings the count to an even dozen females between my sisters, sister-cousins and our children, and her arrival also means that order has once again been restored to the universe.

Zeke, Keara's older brother, is a delight, but we all knew the whole "boy" thing was, as sister Betsy so eloquently called it, "a blip."

Isn't she pretty?

I had an opportunity to spend a little get-to-know-you time with her last night, and I think she's going to work out very nicely.

Congratulations, Kerry, Erik and Zeke!

(P.S. I totally called it.)

I just love that FACE!! Seriously. I think most newborns are quite "meh". But this one is special. THOSE CHEEKS! I just smile when I see that face. She is so sweet.

Welcome to the family, Keara! She is a beautiful little girl -- must be something in the genes!
