Our amazing baby boy, Asher Jeremiah (or Asher Yermiyahu in Hebrew) was born on Monday, January 17th at 9:48 pm. As with his sister, he’s pretty high-tech, so upon getting some small amount of sleep, he went online, created a gmail account, and sent an email out announcing his arrival:
“Hi everyone! I’m awake for a few, so wanted to introduce myself! I’m super-excited to meet my sister later this morning – I really hope our first meeting goes well
At 9:48 pm last night (Monday January 17th), I finished quite a quick trip out of mom. She was great throughout the entire thing!
At delivery, I weighed 8 lbs even, and was 19 3/4 inches long.
As far as my name goes:
Asher is Hebrew, meaning Blessed, or Happy. Asher was also one of Jacob’s sons in the Torah.
Jeremiah (Yirmeyahu in Hebrew) was one of the Hebrew prophets.
I am named after my Great-Grandmother Edith (Yiddith in Hebrew), as well as my Great-Uncle Keith Alan and Great-Uncle Jeff.
(PS Pictures coming soon; daddy brought the wrong USB cable to the hospital)”
He then followed it up with a second email, this time containing pictures:
“We got the USB cable, so we were able to get pictures up online.

Since some of you can’t/won’t access Facebook, I’ve also attached three of my mom’s favorites to this email as well.
