The new guy

Look at those dark eyes! He's amazed us with periods of alertness, where he seems to be taking in all his surroundings. We've had such a peaceful day together. As would seem to be our habit, we haven't chosen a name for him yet. We welcome suggestions.

Will post more soon...

Update 9/18: His name is Maximus Richard. Going by Max, and sometimes being called Ike by his slightly addled (though adoring) parents.


  1. I would hope you could muster the courage to consider:

    Greenburg, Glickstein, Charles, David, Smith OR Jones ...

    if the girls had been boys we were jazzed for Benjamin Hercules and Christopher Thor.

    Congratulations! He's a gem.;o) ...

    let's see, Sarah, Ike, Dave and ?Eric?

    S.I.D.E. Project? love ya, thanks for being.

  2. Charlemagne Roland Kil

    Charlemagne for his first name as the new emperor
    Roland for the middle name as he was Charlemagne’s captain.

    Nickname for Charlemagne would be Chuck and Roland was his great Grandfather's middle name.


  3. I like the Chuck part and Roland too...not so sure about Charlemagne though. A friend of mine thought of Nathaniel...Auntie Jo

  4. My goodness...he seems to look a lot like Ike! Love the IKE SPIKE hair pictures, too. We have some of those...oh, and there you go: Spike- great name! But, actually, I am a big boring fan of normal...:) Congrats.

  5. Can't wait to meet him!!! Maximus sounds good to me...

  6. He looks like a mini Ike! Congratulations!!!

  7. what a beautiful boy! congrats to you all!
    and if he doesnt already have a name...i looked at him and thought Willem Grey

    hope all are well, congrats again.

  8. Sarah, David, and Ike,

    Congratulations!!!!! He is beautiful...and a lot like someone else! Max is a very popular name, you know. Hope to meet him, (and his brother) before they go to college!

    Wishing you all a good night's sleep, Love,
