Baby Schmitt Has a Name!

May 4, 2008 09:07


It took us a week, but our little one has a name: Elijah "Eli" Zachary Mason Schmitt.

Zachary was the name our son Ryan (age 7 1/2) gave him and Mason is their father's name. It's a big name but we expect Eli will do big things in his life.

No violin in his tiny hands yet, but I play the Beethoven Symphonies for him on a daily basis (and some other stuff for fun- right now it's Aerosmith's Greatest Hits... maybe he'll be a rock fiddler!)

Picture above was taken 4 days after the birth. Other details at

Thanks to the kind words of congratulations from users on my last posting. We are all so happy to have Eli in the family!
