Congratulations Andy and Mandy!

Hannah Riley Owens arrived this morning via c-section, weighing in around 6 pounds, which is only slightly smaller than her mother. Congratulations Andy and Mandy! That’s awesome news. I love days like this. We haven’t seen pictures yet, but Andy described his daughter as having a birthmark that looked strikingly similar to the NY of the New York Yankees. He also said that her gentle cry sounds similar to a crowd shouting, “Jeter! Jeter!”

It’s fitting for Andy and Mandy that Hannah was born on the Jewish New Year. As strausmouse has said, Happy Rosh Hash-Hannah! Even though there is supposed to be no labor on the Jewish New Year, my guess is that not only would rabbis make an exception in this case, they’d probably say it was a sign of good fortune.

So congratulations once again, kids. You have all sorts of amazing things to look forward to. Just read strausmouse‘s blog to see what I mean.

I can’t wait to see her!

More on Carson

I spoke to Doug again yesterday evening. Little Carson is doing great, as is Rachel. Both are coming come later today (they keep them both in the hospital 24 hours before releasing them). Doug sent some pictures of Carson yesterday and said he would try and send a few more soon. He brought Ruby to see her little brother for the first time, he said, and she was hugging and kissing him.

The official statistics, as I know have them are:

Name: Carson Hamilton Rubin
Sex: Boy
Birthdate:March 8, 2006 1:00 AM PT
Weight:8 pounds, 3 ounces
Length:20 inches

Incidentally, Carson’s due date was March 7, 2006. I don’t know how often it happens that a baby is born so close to the due date (he was an hour off of being born on the due date), but that’s a pretty darn good guess on the doctor’s part.
