Elizabeth Rose King arrived at 7:49 this morning, weighing 6 lbs., 8 oz., and measuring 18 1/2 inches in length.
Yes, the name "Rose" occurred to me when I thought the 'Dawgs had a shot at facing Southern California in Pasadena on New Year's Day.
No, it was not intentional that my daughter's initials spell out the first name of my favorite Georgia defensive coordinator.
The baby's mother, older brother, other family members, and friends will call her "Elizabeth." Her father will call her "Scout" and, when she figures out how to bend her father to her whim (I give it two months, tops), she will call me "Atticus."
Mother and daughter are doing fine. Photographs to follow.
