As was apparent to everyone on our Fourth of July ride, Melanie was pregnant. Okay, that’s not right. She was very, very pregnant. I was worried that she might give birth during our ride, but, as you know, my fears were unfounded.
I learned earlier today that she gave birth to a baby boy who was 22″ long and tipped the scales at 9 pounds, 7 ounces. Melanie and her husband, Todd, haven’t picked out a name for their new son, but they’ve promised to let us know when they make their selection.
In the meantime, congratulations to both of you! I’m sure your new son will grow up to be all that you want him to be and all that he can be. Melanie, forgive me for doubting your certainty that you’d be fine on our ride. Mea culpa!
