Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., and his wife Brooke added to their family earlier this month, with the birth of their second daughter. Eloise Jane — Yoder's office said her name is inspired by two of her great-grandmothers — arrived at 11 a.m. on Nov. 2 at Shawnee Mission Medical Center. She measured about 21 inches long and weighed in at 7 pounds, 13 ounces and joins sister Caroline Lucille.
Later that week, Yoder released the following statement: "Brooke and I could not be happier to announce the addition of Eloise Jane to our family and Caroline is thrilled to be a big sister. We want to thank all of the great health care providers at Shawnee Mission Medical Center who helped deliver her in good health. Our own little slugger is truly a blessing and we were thrilled she was brought into a world where the Royals are World Champions.”
