Megan had her baby – Our Director of Graphic Design Megan Newhouse & her husband Kevin Boyd had a baby boy on the afternoon of Monday July 19th: Kieran David Boyd weighed in at 7 lbs, 13 oz, with a length of 19.25 inches. The birth went exactly as planned. All are home and doing very well.
Congratulations Megan and Kevin. In the betting pool, Shawn was closest for guessing the due date, and Jamie was closest for guessing the birth weight.
