AGOURA HILLS, CALIFORNIA -- After bringing nine little boys into the
world, Kelli and Bryan Skinner finally have their girl. Daisy Kay,
born 5 Oct 1999, has brothers ranging in age from 23 to 2.
Ths Skinners' were shocked when the ultrasound technician told them
it was a girl. Kelli Skinner immediately said, "You know we have nine
boys." The technician then offered to check again. Fortunately the
technician was right.
Kelli says that Bryan is very happy with his new daughter, "He's
always wanted a 'daddy's girl' to go along with all the 'mommy's
boys' around the house." The boys in the family are all protective of
their new sister, according to their mother. But, she notes, no one
is volunteering for diaper duty.
