A Baby is Such a Nice Way to Start a Person

The phone rang about ten minutes ago.  It was Richmond calling.

Nathaniel Joseph is here.  He weighs 7-1/2 pounds.  He is 18 inches long.  He has red hair!

I will meet him on April 21.  This will be the longest ten days of my life!

Awww, what a lovely statement as well my friend. Congratulations!!! Oh I'm so happy for you all. More baby love. I don't know how you're going to hold out until the 21st but I've seen you practice patience so I reckon you can show us how it's done - yet again. ;)
