swissmister = Tilo Red Eisenberg

Some of you might have been wondering about the lack of posts this week. Here’s the 8lbs reason:

Please welcome Tilo Red Eisenberg a.k.a swissmister. Born on February 14th, 2010 at NYU Hospital in Manhattan. Yes, February 14th is Valentine’s day and the first day of the Year of the Tiger. (The little man sure made a bold statement with that date!)

Unfortunately things haven’t been smooth sailing and Tilo has been in the NICU (newborn intensive care unit) for the last 3 days and will have to stay until at least tuesday. It has been a humbling experience to say the least. Please, send some good energy so that he’ll be coming home with us next week. We are home! We are home! Yay!

And a big thank you to everyone that helped us with the name finding.

Yay for Tilo the Tiger!

(For those of you wondering on how to pronounce Tilo: You pronounce the ‘i’ just like in my name, Tina.)

  68. tigers rule (i’m biased since i’m a tiger too)!! the middle name is so perfect too. get home soon, tilo!

  69. humbling indeed (we were back in the hospital within a day due to poor advice re: hydration).
    and it won’t be the last time.

    this adventure was “designed” by another entity. enjoy!!!

  70. What a beautiful little boy. Much love from Florida!

  71. such a strong little man! i was honored to hold him just as he turned one day old and i will be even more honored to watch this little man grow up. what a wonderful gift little tilo is! im so very proud to see him grow! xoxo

  72. Awwh, congrats, that date is awesome. I wish you luck with everything. :)

  73. He´s a fighter (crouching tiger?), and will get through this with ease. I believe the worst part, the mother lives it, instead of the child, so don´t get too hard on yourself. Good and happy life to you, Swissmister!

  74. beautiful.

  75. Congratulations Tina! And, welcome to the world Tilo! Wow! On the Chinese New Year day! You Rock!

    positive vibes to all the family an Tilo in particular

  94. I’ve been following your blog for a few months, and just wanted to post some congrats! Wish you the best!!

  95. In spanish, “Tilo” is an evergreen tree with deep roots. Live long.
    All our sunny and best energy from Spain.

  96. grow for it ;-) tiger

    our first went to NeoNatal Camp too on her first two (or 3?) weeks or so, it makes the special occasion even more special… but as you can see for my guestimation no longlasting traumas should be installed ;-)

    enjoy every moment… even/especially the bad ones (like ‘the one where he does not stop crying, day 17’), these moments get erased from memory even quicker…but one day you need hard evidence when he asks for the bigger car when het gets 16 ;-)

    very nice name play, Tina Roth Tilo Red, next can be Tiju Riojo ;-)

  97. Congratulations !

  98. Congrats! He’s adorable :D

  99. Lots of love and best wishes from us in the UK!

    O Thou peerless Lord! Let this suckling babe be nursed from the breast of Thy loving-kindness, guard it within the cradle of Thy safety and protection and grant that it be reared in the arms of Thy tender affection.

  284. I can’t believe Toni’s post – my hometown (Varese) is on the route of that train service…….but stranger than that is that ‘Tilo’ is the slang name my parents used for my (ahem) ding-a-ling when I was little. A shortened version of ‘Pistolino’ (little pistol) apparrently. I can’t believe there’s a train service called that in Italy! Maybe it was just a one-off but be prepared if you ever go to Italy Tina!

  285. @Simon, needless to say, I just laughed out loud over here in my studio. Thank you for making me smile… ha!
