      Ted sez:

      <<By the way, his full name (we just reached agreement today) is Seraphim
      Alexander Ezekiel Sherman.>>

      Yeah, but what are you going to *call* him?

      I'll say this; when he's dumped all the uncooked macaroni out of a package on the floor and starts pitching it up in the air to see how it lands, he's gonna have one heck of a moniker, and he'll *really* know he's in trouble! MOM: "Seraphim Alexander Ezekiel Sherman! Stop that! At ONCE." Just the "Seraphim" should be a clue, since he's not being very seraphic in this (imaginary) incident.

      <<Seraphim is after St. Seraphim of Sarov, a Russian Orthodox saint of the
      late 18th- and early 19th centuries. Alexander is because we like the name.
      ANd Ezekiel is because he was born on the name day (in the Orthodox
      tradition) of the Holy Prophet Ezekiel.>>

      I *have* to ask. Is there a Saint Cherubim? :) Seriously, it's a great name. ---djb.

      Thanks for all your prayers and words of comfort and encouragement.
