As much as I embrace our Anglo-Saxon heritage, I am happy to be able to definitively tell you that the baby’s name is NOT Hrothgar. (In some ways it’s a shame — Dad has been coaching big sister E.H. on the pronunciation, and she has become quite proficient.)
At 2 days old, Baby Brother is already outgrowing his Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat (the pattern, by Keri McKiernan, is available in your choice of English, German, or Italian! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/easy-peasy-newborn-sock-hat)
Feel free to leave suggestions for his name in the comments! If we’re really going Anglo-Saxon, I like Aethelbehrt, personally.
