Welcome Sweet Baby Girl

Karlie Rose Akers arrived at 2:15 pm, Friday, August 21, in Austin, Texas. She weighed in at 5 lbs. 15 oz., 19" long. Here she is at about 1 hour old. Mother, baby, and Daddy are doing fine. Everyone is thrilled that she is healthy and, of course, we think she is BEAUTIFUL.

Granddad Karl is definitely proud that she is named for him and Aunt Ashley is getting in lots of sweet cuddling. Grammy Connie will stay in Austin for the week to help Mommy & Dad settle in with our little sweetie and is looking forward to lots of cuddling and kisses too.

She is so pretty! Can't wait for her to get bigger so I can see who she looks like.
