Chief Steve's wife gave birth to a 7 lb. 9 oz healty baby boy. Steve is stationed by Mosul (Key West). He found out about the birth and talked to his wife about four hours after the delivery.
His oldest daughter helped mom with the delivery and cut the cord. And they put pictures of Steve all around the room (as my friend Jane suggests - to give Steve's wife someone to yell at).
Welcome to the world, Benjamin!
