Announcing the Birth of John Vincent Luis

John Vincent Luis (two middle names; I'm not supposed to use last names here unless I go to the trouble of manufacturing fake ones) was born today, December 21, 2011, at 1:04 p.m. PST, to Vincent and Rachelle in front of an audience of I don't know how many, but it was definitely in double figures. Should there be any question as to whom this boy was born to, many witnesses are available to clear the matter up. John Vincent Luis, who will be called John, weighed in at  7 lbs, 1 oz., and  measured 21 inches in length. John has a respectable amount of dark hair and is dark-eyed. He's still a bit pink but appears to be slightly fairer-skinned than his older sister, Leah, who is now three-and-one-half.

The baby's father, Vincent, actually delivered the baby, then handed John to his father while he cut the umbilical cord. The baby was then handed to his mother, and then to his grandmother, who didn't choose to witness the birth but made it into the room just in time to see the first Apgar scoring take place. For the record, John's  Apgar scores were 8-10. Auntie Jillian also entered shortly after John's birth.

Mother, father, and baby have been left alone to savor the moment. The other participants have moved on to the Party House in Vnice Beach and are in full celebretory mode.
