Manar, my wife, just gave birth to our second child, Jonah Hutton Firas Landis.
Jonah was born at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday March 27. He was 8 pounds and 10 ounces and 22 inches long. He came out quickly and without struggle. His brother Kendall Shaaban is delighted even though he wanted a sister named variously Pamela or Alexandra.
If you are wondering how we came up with Jonah, it is because my mother is named Joan Hutton. Jonah is also Yunis in Arabic and Ianis in Greek. Firas is the name of Manar's brother.
