Jonathan Jia-Rong Hsieh

Brace yourself… the boom continues! Congrats to Jennifer Shen and husband Andrew Hsieh on the birth of their son, Jonathan Jia-Rong Hsieh (pictured), born August 10, 2012. Older brother Joshua, 4, is just as thrilled as mom and dad. Jennifer and Andrew are both doctors in San Francisco, where Jennifer is chief of family medicine at Kaiser Permanente and Andrew is an oncologist at UCSF. 

Mark Peter Kohl

On the other side of the country, Betsy (Packard) Kohl and husband Mark Andrew welcomed baby boy Mark Peter Kohl (pictured in his orange and black car seat) on March 30, 2013. Betsy writes “I can’t say enough wonderful things about the first Mark in my life, and we couldn’t wait to welcome a second one into our family.” Dad works at DeCaro Doran, a law firm in Bowie, MD. When Betsy goes back to work, she’ll return to the Office of the General Counsel at the Department of Energy.
