Blanco County News editor Charles Willgren and wife Rachelle are thrilled to announce the arrival of Khalen Gunnar Willgren, born at home on Thursday, September 27, at 11:58am. Khalen was born a big boy, weighing 9 pounds, 5 ounces and measuring 21.5 inches long. He has bright blue eyes and enormous feet.
Proud Grandparents are Keith and Nancy Domke of Union, MO, Cordelia Willgren of Cedar Park, and Steve and Judy Willgren of Austin. Great-grandparents are Florence Soliday and Paul and Marcie Domke of Valparaiso, IN, Jewell Scott of Austin, and Johnnie Willgren of San Antonio. Khalen also happened to arrive on Marcie “Schotzie” Domke’s birthday!
Khalen was delivered under the excellent care of midwives June Lamphier and Mary Littlefield. Cordelia provided much-needed encouragement during labor; Vickie Pautz has been very supportive through the pregnancy, right after delivery, and beyond.
Thanks to everyone for their prayers and well wishes and everything else. Khalen is certainly a well loved little boy!
