Jun 20, 2008: I'm Lou Rosenfeld and I approved this message

WARNING: narcissism aheadMary Jean, who's always been the best writer in the family, writes:

Nathaniel Oscar Rosenfeld was born Wednesday, June 18, at the extremely hospitable hour of 2:54 p.m. He was a strapping 8 pounds 6 ounces, and within minutes of emerging had figured out where the snack bar was, so we expect that number to stay impressive. After the world's longest pregnancy (27 years), everything went about perfectly with the labor and birth. That kid was so overripe he fell right off the tree.

Iris is crazy about having a little bother brother. When Lou called her after the birth, I could hear her scream with excitement, through his phone, from six feet away. She suggested we use her middle name, Rachel, as his too, but we decided that a little individuality would be a good thing for both of them.

Check them both out here.

We're trying to remember how to do this infant thing again, but have already been reminded how impossibly cute newborns are, and how much fun.

That *is* well written! :) And congratulations!!!!!

Wow!!! Mazel Tov!!! We're glad to hear Iris is crazy about her new sib (Max is happy to have a new, baby brother-in-law, too).

We can't wait to see you all when we come to NYC later this summer. And maybe shoot some hoops with Oscar (Madison?).

By the way: I'm assuming that "bother" was a simply typo on the part of Bloug's off-shore production staff, and doesn't reflect any actual ambivalence on Iris's part toward her new bRother.


Joy! Joy! Joy! (And get some sleep, maybe.)

Rich, Myra, and Max

Congratulations Lou. I foresee him writing the polar bear book (19th edition) in 2040.
