אַבְנֵר שְׁמוּאֵל

It's a boy! Avner Shmuel Myers was born on the 2nd at 03:08, 2950g and 48.5cm; just larger than the width of a rackmount server, but certainly not as heavy. English speakers will know Avner as Abner, and is mentioned a few places in the Bible. Look near the end of 1 Samuel Chapter 14 and the first few chapers of 2 Samuel. For pronunciation notice the nikkud on אַ, which is a Patach.

Mom and baby are both doing well. The other kids are curious and seem to be accepting him well. Rachael has no trouble saying Avner's name and gives him hugs, but Obed doesn't seem to understand that he can't wrestle with little brother yet.

And for comparison, here's a photo of Obed:
