I'm a little choked up
Last week our friends had a baby (okay, she did all the hard work)- a boy, Jonah, 7 lbs. 6 oz. and, knock wood, healthy- and we were so joyful when they called but tonight we're honored. They asked us to be the god parents to their son. Traditionally, there is the sandek, the one given the honor of holding the baby during the bris and meant to guide the child, but they are merging traditions and also want to include us. I'm a little choked up over it.
