Pictures Galore

Just a note first: We have officially named and registered our daughter. Her name is Elisheva Anne Shannon. Anne is both because it's a traditional English name, and then also after Anne of Green Gables, my best friend of the fictional world.

This is mainly just a pictures post. First off, as I talked about Lydia in a recent post, and her obsession with the bouncy chair, here is visual evidence of this fact. She put herself to sleep for the night in this first one.

Last Friday the students here had a party for Elisheva's birth and for another student, Daniel, and his new wife. Daniel took pictures at it, and he has a lot better camera and camera skills than I do, so I thought I'd post some of his pictures:

Elisheva's first trip outside.

Avram thinking.

That's all, folks.


  1. Love the pictures. Glad to know of the middle name. Thanks for posting.

  2. Cute pictures.
    Avram, you should have waited to shave your beard off. It looks really nice in these shots.

  3. Thora, I see your face (even in digital) and I ache to live near you again. Not just to see you, or to visit, but to be close enough to interact regularly and let our children play together. sigh. And the fact that I have stayed up past midnight to read every one of your posts and every comment on those posts is proof enough of my internet junkie-hood.

  4. These shots make Avi's beard look much better. One of the earlier shots was positively Hapsburgian:P

    Miss you guys.

  5. Hey this is Martha writing from my office. Congratulations babe! All my love to your new baby. Can't wait to have you back in the states.

  6. Thora, she's beautiful!! Both your daughters!

    and wow, Avram has interesting facial hair!
