I’m an aunt! (I’ve waited my whole life to be Auntie Em!!!)

Congrats to Brian and Karen on the arrival of red-haired Henry James Dahl, 7lbs 8 oz, 19.5 in. Born today at 11:20 edt.


Update:  I just received the official press release:



Karen and Brian welcome newest member to their fabulous family;
World now officially on notice that this kid is “freakin’ awesome.”

Boston, Mass. – Friday, November 16, 2007 – Brian Reich and Karen Dahl became proud parents today.  Henry James Dahl was born at 11:20am EDT at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.  The baby weighed 7lbs, 8oz and measured 19.5 inches at birth.  The baby is healthy, happy, and beautiful.  Ten fingers and ten toes were counted.

“It’s the most incredible experience of my life,” said Brian Reich, the baby’s father. “I couldn’t be more excited.”  Henry was born with a full head of red hair, matching his mother Karen, and big, bright blue eyes (though experts says the eye color of the baby won’t be fully defined for several weeks). The baby’s mother, Karen Dahl, added “He’s perfect – and I am not just saying that because he is ours.”  Doctors and nurses at the hospital have independently confirmed Ms. Dahl’s conclusion that the baby is perfect.

The couple is making phone calls and sending emails to family and friends today.  “We encourage you to help spread this happy news” said Reich, “and I promise to send photos and additional information soon.”

The family will remain at the hospital through the weekend and will be back at home in Cambridge, MA early next week.  Mom, dad, and baby are gladly accepting congratulatory phone calls, text messages, emails, wall posts, pokes, tweets, phone messages and even snail mail.
