With thanks to Hashem Shimshonit, the Cap’n, and the Crunch girls take great joy in announcing the birth of Bill, the newest addition to our family. He is healthy, the spitting image of his mother as a newborn, and will be named (officially), please God, at his brit next Monday morning. Mazal tov!
*The title of this post and the name Bill are inspired by a song by The Who about a boy with three elder sisters (complete lyrics here). While it’s not part of anyone’s plan to make the boy’s life difficult, his parents are having trouble refraining from using feminine pronouns and the name of his third elder sister in referring to him. We hope these technical difficulties will iron out with time.
