Nameless No More!

Our little man has a name at last! Introducing....

Shmuel (Samuel) Mendel. We'll call him Sam. He's my beautiful boy and a real trooper. Mommy survived the bris, and baby is doing well.

We did a stealthy, unannounced bris in our home with little fanfare. I wanted as few people around these little babies as possible, and I got my wish. There will be time too ooh and aah over them later, but right now, it's time to give them some space and let them be. So we VERY quietly made the arrangements yesterday and had an early morning bris today.

And now my little guy has a name. And I love him so much, just like his sisters. I can't believe they are really here and they are really mine.

A fine name! Mazel tov on the bris.

Good call on the quiet arrangements -- better for all involved.

And with the bris and all the naming done, you can look forward to a kiddush or other gathering for celebrating all three equally, when you are up to it.

*You* are a trooper!

Mazel Tov and welcome to Sam! I love that name. If my Baby B had been a boy, she'd have been Samuel Isaac (Shmuel Yitzchak). A good strong name for a good strong little man.
