At around 1:30 AM this morning, 16 time zones away, Stacey, Keller’s wife, gave birth to a baby girl in Albury, Australia. Both baby and mother are OK. The little girl weighed about 7.25 pounds. No name yet.
Stacey is exhausted. While she is unbelievably fit, as evidenced by the fact that she is the only one in our family to have competed at the Division I level in college sports (she was a sprinter on the swim team at Nebraska and still holds school records there), labor was long and arduous. On top of that, while preparing for the birth of her second child, Stacey was trying to complete her PhD dissertation, entitled: “Fish assemblage and in-stream habitat in the Beavers Creek / Old Man Creek anabranch of the Murrumbidgee River, NSW.” She is one tough woman.
So far, we have only one photo. It came via Viber.
It shows Keller all gowned up and ready for the delivery. I believe the photo was taken by Stacey. Anyway, here it is:
More later . . .
