Yeah Baby!

Well, my son was born a day after I made the last post, so I've been busy with the new addition to the family. His name is Logan and in his 3 weeks of existence he's already been to Vegas!

Anyway he's been a pretty good baby, pretty easy to care for. I've tried to play the ukulele for him a few times, but I guess it is too early to have an effect on him. Maybe he'll grow up to like it (or he might think daddy is too noisy with his little guitar). After having two girls it's a fairly new experience with a boy. It's been fun so far and hopefully when he grows up we can have more father-son type of fun (playing ball, ukulele, passing down my "guy" stuff to him, etc...)

Little babies grow fast and as you can see from the picture, he's about to outgrow the size of my DaSilva. Haha! I hope you guys enjoy the quick picture.

In other ukulele happenings, I think I've figured out how to play Jake's "Trapped". Pretty simple tune really. When I get a chance I'll try to post a video or something.

Thanks for reading!

Congrats on your baby boy! Speaking of baby. If you don't mind,I would like to know the dimension of your baby Santo uke you have. How long is fret scale, and what is the body length and depth of the Santo uke? Thanks!-An

The Santo has a 13" scale. I'm not sure about the length and depth, but I think the length is probably around 19" or so. Depth is probably about 2".

Logan looks to be more of a 15" scale, give or take. :-) Congratulations! Here's to minimal sibling rivalry!
