    CONGRATULATIONS! He’s so cute!!! Ron, you’re right in your email; there’s no way that you were “better” (i.e. cuter) than Leo. ;) If/whenever Sara craves some sticky rice, you know what to do–I’m only 20~30 min away!

    WOW! Congratulations. He is so cute. Lucky you with the short labor. Anyway, we should be joining you in the next 2.5 weeks. We’ll have to have a play date next time we come back to visit NJ.

    Love,

    Wow! Hello Leo! He’s a cutie. We are all excited to see him and Sara (and you too, Ron). Welcome to parenthood and hang on to your sanity while enjoying the roller-coaster. I am sure Manan and Sejal will want to leave their own messages for Leo so we’ll have them do that tomorrow.

    Lucky Leo! Rothman 2.0!
    Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
    You could not be entering a better house. It is filled with two of the nicest, coollest – and don’t forget smartest – parents a boy could ever hope for.
    i can’t wait to meet you, and I’m already counting down the days until you can be taken to the Bent Spoon.

    WOW!! Congratulations! It sounds like things couldn’t have gone smoother! As far away from the situation as I am, this is really the closest I’ve ever been to the birth of baby. I mean, you casually dropped us off after lunch after getting a call from Sara, and in less than three hours you were a father! It’s really quite amazing. I hope everything continues to go well!

  9. Congratulations Ron and Sara! I’m so glad the home birth went so well! You’ve got a beautiful little boy!

    Hey cousins. Congratulations. You guys do everything right. Leo looks good. Don’t let Ilana pinch him. Please give him a kiss from me. You’ll need someone to train him in the ways of the Persian Jedi. Things are going to get more interesting and fun from here.
    Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy. Love Yossi & Linda.

    I can’t believe the labor was so short and it happened so fast, we saw you 3 hours prior to birth!

    Leo is beautiful! But looks like he really wants to eat here :-)

    And welcome to the parents club ;-)

    Dear Sara, Ron, & Leo – what a cute little guy [and you can see how “bright” he is already].
    So glad to hear your home birth went smoothly. Will be looking forward to meeting him soon. What a nice addition to a long line of very fine folks. Love to you all from Pa,
    Greatgrandsandi

  37. Hi Ron, Sara, and Leo,

    I’m glad to hear Leo’s birth went smoothly, but then you set yourself up for success with lots of preparation and positive thinking. I look forward to hearing Sara’s birth story. Are birthing tubs returnable? At least you had it and didn’t need it instead of the other way around.

    Congratulations on becoming parents. Now I wish you lots of luck with being parents (because your baby won’t always feel like the best baby ever, even though I hope he does).

    When are you bringing the little darling to Oz so I can meet him?
