On naming our son


Ethan and I are delighted to announce the arrival of our son into the world!

Andrew Wynn Zuckerman

Born November 28, 2009 / 11 Kislev 5770

He is named after our maternal grandmothers, Alice Fried Epstein and Winifred Mootrey Campbell. His Hebrew name, Yitzchak, is after my maternal grandfather Isaac Epstein. And he has a Ghanaian (Akan/Twi) name, too: Kwame, because he's Saturday-born.

If you'd like to know more, or if you're interested in following the chronicle of our adventures with him, feel free to visit, where you can see his birth announcement, look at photos, and even subscribe to "his" blog (where we plan to post about life-with-baby.) For now, we wanted all of y'all who read our blogs to be able to share our joy.

(Remember that all comments on this blog are moderated. In these early postpartum hours/days I may not be online much, so please bear with us if it takes a while for your comment to appear.)
