Riley Daniel Kennedy
Born 8:45 this morning. Cute as a button. Has all limbs and toes and whatnot. 7 pounds, 13 ounces. 20 3/4 inches long. Cute as a button. Did I say that? Looks very very wise. Fingers are still a little wrinkly, but clearly writerly. Has the toes of an elite marathon runner, the height of a nascent pro basketball player. His head is very large and therefore I surmise he will be a human computer as well. Already thinking up stories to tell him before he becomes too smart for the old bearded guy with the cane and the pipe to fool him. He's cute as a button. (Cute as a cute button?)
Erin is doing fine and both John and Erin seem very happy. Ann and I are very happy, too.
