Unto all of our friends in the SCA, we send greetings!
Russell Hibma Martin arrived after 9 1/2 hours of labor on Saturday, July 26, 2003 at 8:49 a.m. weighing 6 pounds 14 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. He is a healthy little boy who has made his parents proud. Cute as a button too, with really soft and smooth skin and dark hair. He is a really mellow baby and we are all doing well. My Lord Martin is putting some digital photos on our web site for friends and family to see, so I'll forward the address when I have it.
Just wanted to pass the good word. Yes, both he and I will indeed be at the Kingdom A&S competition this Saturday but as he is quite young I ask that people not beg to cuddle him. We're still working on general immunity to people's germs. Just pretend that he is an entry that you have to admire but not touch! Thank you to all for your thoughts and prayers.
