Elisha Joseph Frishman
I'm not sure O&P has any readers who don't also read the Querencia blog, but on the off chance such a person exists, here is my son Eli, born October first (his actual due date!) at a whopping 9 pounds 12 ounces. We were trying for a home birth, but it eventually became clear that the western medicine safety net was warranted, so he came via C-section in St. Vincent's Hospital, the same place I was born. A second generation honky native of Santa Fe is a fairly rare thing.
Here he is with his state-of-the-art baby monitor:
He's named after Eli Tripp, my departed and much-missed best friend from my Montana years. Steve posted an excellent tribute to Eli a while back, and I'm not up to matching it. Joseph is a family name from his mother's side, and also a nod to Steve, who shares it as a middle name.
Eli and daughter Phoebe, sharing her father's wicked grin:
And for good measure, here's the last picture with our Eli on the inside, two Mondays ago in our local mountains:

Congrats to you honky native baby. He is beautiful; have a great life with him. I a sure he will live up to his name with you two as parents.Post a Comment
