Mini Cooper is here!

Kelly Lake Cooper arrived at 11:22 p.m on Monday, Oct. 22 (2 and a half weeks earlier).

6 lbs, 8 oz, 20 inches. She just made the cutoff for Libra--Rob was holding out for her to be a Scorpio.

She shares her birthday with Seattleites Ann Rule and Ichiro Suzuki, and other famous folks like Catherine Deneuve and Timothy Leary.

We're just so glad she's here.

You might want to actually check an astrological guide or have her horoscope calculated, since the actual position of the sun in each sign varies slightly year to year and if someone is born on a cusp it can vary from the officially designated sign for that day. I had a boyfriend born on the 22nd of October, who for years had believed he was a Scorpio but my mom calculated his chart for him and determined he actually was a Libra.
