The baby is how long?

Proud grandparents Steve and Roni Kansagor of Clearwater are delighted to announce the birth of granddaughter Stella Troy Kansagor on the first night of Passover, Monday, April 10. “My son, having a slightly different sense of humor and in keeping with the spirit of the holiday, decided to see how big the baby was – in Matzoh. My new granddaughter is 2.5 matzohs long. She is now required to be measured in matzoh every birthday from here on out,” wrote Steve Kansagor. Stella’s parents are Dr. Adam and Jessica Kansagor of Greenville, NC. Proud big sister is Zoe.
