Benjamin Louis Kennedy arrived this afternoon at 2:07 p.m.! Everyone is doing fine (Karen, Matt, and little Benjamin). The Northstar Nerd is now Grampa Nerd! (watch the slideshow embedded below or this short video).
As a fyi I am introducing Benjamin to his new bear. You need to understand that when each of my three children were born, I "found" each of them a bear on their "birth days" and introduced them to their new friends. Tradition!
I still have the bear given to me when I was born (Tommy Bear)!
