sue called me during lunch today to let me know she’d had her baby this morning around 9:30am. it’s a girl. they named her…uh…simcha ruth. “simcha” (pronounced sim’-ka, i believe) is hebrew for “happiness, joy”. she was a little over 8 lbs and the labor evidently was only about 3.5 hours or so. i went over there after work today and everyone seemed to be doing well. i held the new arrival for an hour or so while jack and i watched nacho libre. i wouldn’t have really volunteered for holding her, but sue gave her to me rather abruptly when she got up — then she was doing okay so sue left her with me.
