We are excited to announce the arrival of Leopold Peter Danze!!
Born July 10th at 12:45 pm, Leo weighed 8 lbs. 7 oz. and measures 21 and 1/4in long. Emily warmed up to him quickly and loves to bring him blankets, pacifiers and diapers.
Leo has been a real treat for many family and friends over the past few days. We cannot get enough of this lil wiggle worms' squeaks and funny faces. So far he is eating and sleeping well.
We are honored to name Leo after his great-grandfather. Here is an email from Great-Grandpa...
I am truly honored at your name choice for your little Prince.
Did you know that Leopold means "Peoples Prince", what name could be lovelier?
Leo means royalty and pold means the people, taken from the Greek, Polis.
So yes your little guy is a Prince even in name.
Congratulations again, he'll be a fine companion to beautiful Emily.
-Gpa Leo - pold
Saint Leo the Great and Saint Peter are great Catholic saints that Leo will look to for guidance.
