10) Elias was the fifth quintuplet to be born.  He was labeled Baby E by the hospital.  We had our four girl names and one boy name picked out before the quintuplets were born.  Conner’s first big brother job was to name each baby.  Thankfully, this was an easy task for him with Elias being the only boy.  Elias Michael is the only child with a middle name that is a different letter than his first name to follow a family tradition.
