Welcome Jocelyn Dori Merkin!

Jocelyn as a newborn

Today we put our hands together for a big Earth-wide welcome for humanity's newest sister, Jocelyn Dori Merkin, who was born at 3:01 pm (EDT) on July 11, 1999, to Lisa Shapero and David Charles Merkin. Jocelyn weighs 6 lbs., 4 oz. and is 19 inches long. (Nice work, kids.)

Pictures with the beaming grandparents will follow as soon as they figure out how to use this %v@& camera.

Jocelyn, now seven weeks old and happy as can be, with Grandma Linda. Well? Do you like the hat? I like the hat. I think it's me! Got it? The big, tall one's mine. You can have the skinny, goofy-looking guy.

Mommy, I have so many questions. Like, what happened to your big toes? ... and, if it's Daddy's birthday, how come I get the stuffed dog? Are you certain this guy won't drop me?
