Crib Note – Caleb August Temkin

Emma Eisemann Temkin and Eli Temkin of St. Louis Park, Minnesota, welcomed a darling baby boy, Caleb August Temkin, on November 20th. He weighed seven pounds, six ounces, and was 19 and one-half inches long. Caleb has blue eyes and brown hair. His delighted grandparents are Leslie Mark and Mark Eisemann and Barbara and Harvey Temkin. Caleb’s maternal great-grandmother, Elinor Eisemann, of Our Town, was thrilled to welcome the little fellow via Zoom! Caleb’s nursery was painted by his grandmother Leslie in a sage green to complement the forest and animal theme that was planned by his parents.
