As Promised

Here are some pictures. I apologize for the smudge in some of them. It was on the lens, and we didn't notice until later.

Here she is first born.
A shot of the little one.
Daddy and Elisheva
The whole family all together. Lydia loves Elisheva. She really seemed to grasp that Elisheva was coming and loves her baby sister. She doesn't always know quite what to do with her, but she loves talking about her and touching her (which is hard, because two year olds don't always grasp the concept of fragile).

We are all home now and accepting phone calls, visits (ha!), bags of money, etc. Thank you all for you love and support.


  1. Warmest congratulations from us!

  2. Yay! Beautiful baby, beautiful family :)

  3. Beautiful! I am so grateful all went well and your internet is working again. I will call you the first time I have time when it is not in the middle of the night there--even though you are probably up with the baby. I love you so much.

  4. you all look happy.

    Nice beardthing Avram


  5. Congratulations to the whole family. Thora, that first picture of you, my goodness, you look STUNNING!

  6. Hooray!
    Congrats to you all.
    (Maybe it's good Lydia forgot the word Michele and I taught her. :) )

    Happy family to you all.

  7. Thora you look WAY too good to just have given birth! I love all the pictures, more more!! She is beautiful. I will be right over for a visit with my bag of money... lol.. Love you so much and wish i could come and snuggle that baby! when you have the time ( ha!) or maybe when you are up nursing in the middle of the night anyways i would love to read your birth story... hint hint... :) I am just so happy for you all. Congratulations Thora, Avram, and Lydia!

  8. Yeah, how in heck do you manage to look that gorgeous just after giving birth? That picture's a keeper, for both you and Elisheva. We should all have our children in England.

    Yeah, baby is fragile . . . but baby is also made of rubber, so Lydia probably won't do too much damage unless she genuinely tries for it.

    Congratulations again! I'm so happy for you guys!

  9. Oh she is so beautiful! Thora you look absolutly lovely. I hope that I look that nice after I give birth. I wish that I had a bag of money or two to spare. I would love to come an see you. Oh well I will just have to wait until you come back to the states. I love you and I hope that you and the baby are well.
    Love mary

  10. Wow. Deepest and most heartfelt congratulations to all of you! You look so happy.

  11. She sure is a cutie. Im sorry that you didnt get the hoe birth that you wanted. I might try for that next time. At least you were able to get a midwife.

  12. All we can say is: "The Hair!"

    Elisheva has such beautiful dark hair and Avram . . . well, we imagine he has joined a club that has refused to let its members shave until the Tories are back in power.
