NANA is what I told my son I'd like to be called. My mother's Mom was Nana and she was the most wonderful grandmother. I hope that Jakob will think as highly of me when he's old enough to have an opinion. He was born at 2:43 this afternoon and mother and son are doing well. It's certainly exciting; even my husband who doesn't show excitement was teary eyed. We'll go down for the brit milah, which if it is done according to tradition will be next Sunday. He's a very considerate child so far.
Here he is at about 10 minutes old sent from the new Dad's Blackberry. The hospital has wi fi, so we got regular updates during labor.
We called our daughter Alex in Korea when we found out Sarah was in labor, and she insisted that I call her even if it was the middle of the night her time, which it was. You can see how excited she is if you read her blog entry, the link is over on the left in my blog roll. AAA Alex's Adventures in Asia.
I promise that I won't post too much on Jake, but this first day is pretty special.
Hey, that's Cathy in her new silk dress!
