So sweet. He looks like his sisters.. so what are you calling him, if he has no name? Little brother? :)

Sounds like Colorado rules about naming babies before you leave the hospital are different than the ones I have experienced in NYC.

We're calling him Gus around here -- until you name him of course. . . :) He sure is beautiful!

Oh he is so marvellous a cherub with his dark hair and square "Russian"??? face. Even if you had chosen a name beforehand, knowing that the unborn wonder was a little boy, I quite understand the need to wait until a name is chosen. A name is extremely important. We are whom we are named! So perhaps he is growing into a name that you have for him... or he is helping you to find a different and special name for him, that you all agree upon!!

My daughter was set on one name for her child, my grand-daughter and it was several days before she was "named" as my daughter's friends took the name she had chosen ... and then I was glad because I preferred the final name ... though I don't much like the abbreviated form of Francesca which I resist emphatically! I named my children with 4 syllable names and avoided any names ending in the sound uh/a!!! It was a foible of my family which I broke the rules for!! But look there it returns! My daughter chooses a name ending in uh/a!
A king resplendent will have his name when the name becomes him!

How about Bering...after Vitus Bering, the man for whom the Bering Sea/Strait were named? Granted, the original Vitus Bering was born in Denmark, but he spent his career in the Russian Navy.

I just like the idea of calling him "Bear," for short. He looks like a little cub, doesn't he?

I hope his sisters are ready for him!
