Dawning of a new era!

Not so much time to write, but...

Thursday morning, 1:45 AM... Shulamis Rivka Druyan was born!
(Shulamis comes from Shir Hashirim (Song of Songs), perek 7, passuk 1. Rivka is of course Rivka (Rebecca) Imenu.)

Will write more details after shabbos - we just got home, having signed ourselves out of the hospital (they wanted to keep us for shabbos, and I said... no!)

B"H she's healthy, I'm healthy... and as soon as I get off the computer, SR (hee hee, I can't just write "SR" anymore!), that is, Sarah Rochel will meet Shulamis Rivka. Yes, Shulamis Rivka is the spitting image of Sarah Rochel's baby pictures, except for the luxurious (i.e. spiky) dark hair.

I will take a moment to mention, however, that Shulamis Rivka is an excellent pooper. Bli ayin hara.

In your next post I demand a pronunciation guide for your new SR's first name! Lol. She's beautiful and glad to hear that all of you are doing well. I'm sure SR the First is a proud big sister.

Mazal tov!!!!! (Let's see how many places I can write it!) Special recognition to the big sister, SR, who I guess we will have to call S'Roch! Lots of hugs and kisses

babybean said...

Okay, so now that I looked at the verse where her name came from I know how to pronounce it, I think, lol.

Mazal tov!! We can't wait to see the latest addition to the Rosenblatt dynasty (instead of JR it's SR)...

She's beautiful ka"h. Can't wait to meet her in person.

She is adorable, and I was also immediately struck by the mathcing initial-thing and the thought that you can no longer write SR. Cant wait to hear how s'roch interacts now that she's a reality. Mazel tov!

Shira said...

Ahhhhhhh! She's beautiful! What fantastic timing too! (Mommy arrived on Wed., right?)
Though, from this vantage, sh'rifk doesn't look too much like s'roch. Looking forward to seeing more of your girlies!!!!!! (tochter 1 and tochter 2? )

Mazal Tov! We're happy that you took time out of your busy schedule to post pics. Shulamis Rivka is so cute. May you merit to raise her to Torah, chuppah and maasim tovim. I wonder if she'll look just like SR but with brown curly hair. Enjoy them and don't forget to rest!
