My college buddy, Chris Ring, just had a welcome addition to his family. In his words:

Shaela Marie Ring came into the world on 15 July at 10:38 AM. She was a bruiser at 8 lbs, 6 oz and 21 inches long. Mom and baby are doing great and we are having a lot of fun with the new addition.

Hopefully, we'll be able to drop in on them in August.
