He’s finally here!

Guest blogger kate here…

Baby Man made his long-awaited entrance this morning at 12:09 am!

He is 9 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long….wow!

Beruriah went into labor on her own yesterday afternoon. She sounds rested (somehow?) and happy and says she is so grateful for everybody’s support through her pregnancy. They will be in the hospital until Saturday or Sunday.
