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 http://www.fiddleheads.ca/baby
Thanks to the kind words of congratulations from Violinist.com users on my last posting. We are all so happy to have Eli in the family!
