Welcome Elijah

We've been blessed with a baby boy. He was born Nov. 22nd at 5lbs 11oz--thank goodness!
The other kids have Hopi middle names and so we decided to give Elijah a Chinese middle name. We named him after Justin's great grandfather. So his name is Elijah Chen Siming Freeman--pronounced Szeming. Siming means brilliant thinking. We are excited to have him in our family and the kids are beyond thrilled.
