2.09.08 Anna Sophia has arrived!

Here's the note my husband sent out to our friends and family:

Kara & Chris are proud to announce the arrival of our daughter, Anna Sophia (“Merciful Wisdom”) Whitely.

Born at 11:32 PM on Saturday at Overlook Hospital in Summit NJ, she arrived early – just 28 minutes before her official due date of February 10.

She’s already charming everyone around her. The doctor said she’s in “perfect shape” – with an initial weight of 7 pounds and 10 ounces. Relatively tall at 21 inches at birth, she may already be gearing up to be a top-notch basketball player.

Mom is doing great and is recovering quickly. Dad learned how to change a diaper for the first time and suspects that there are many more coming in the future. Mom and Dad both feel very blessed and joyful to welcome a new member of the family.

Much love,

Kara, Chris & Anna Sophia Whitely
