It's a boy!

Penina (and Nachum) gave birth this afternoon to a baby boy. Why do we say baby boy or baby girl as if anyone has ever given birth to a toddler or an adolescent? Seems to be rather superfluous. But I digress. The baby weighed in at 6 lb. 10 oz. and, according to his mother, is beautiful. We Mays from down the hall would like to extend a hearty Mazal Tov and can't wait to meet BJ. (We can still call him BJ after he gets a real name, right?) Lots of love and here's hoping you get your own digital camera speedily, in our days, amen.

Actually, it is my experience that people generally say either "he/she had a boy" or "he/she had a baby". It seems (don't all jump on me) that a boy adds something and otherwise it's just the default - "baby".
