We are pleased to announce the birth of

Mary Therese Reitemeyer.

The beautiful doll arrived at 2208 (10:08PM for you civies) last night and weighted in at a whopping 8 lbs 12 oz!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Both Michelle and little Mary are resting well, although I am not as I make a feeble attempt to emulate the bionic woman who actually runs this house. (My first order of business was to outsource parenting to a neighbor.)

All is going quite well and everyone is VERY excited.

Husband of a Saint, father to Angels,
