New Baby

It’s been a long week and a half. It started last sunday morning at 4 am. Definite labor pains. I told Rafi to call Etan and Jo. They were here in about 10 minutes (you guys were life savers). Rafi was still unsure that this was all real so we stayed home until we were sure. Got the kids ready for gan and left for the hospital. It’s a pretty quick ride to Hadassa at 6am. We got there and yes, it was real. 5 cm- almost there- and it was even my due date!! (and no, it didn’t matter that I didn’t register there). We had a wonderful midwife named Leslie (ask for her- she was calm, nurturing, and knowledgeable). I asked Rafi “why don’t I get an epidural?” and he said, “It’s your choice but I was supposed to remind you that you don’t want one.” So I didn’t have one. Not a mistake, but lets just say the last couple minutes were challenging. New Baby (who will be named iyH this Friday) was born at 3.77 kilo (over 8 lbs) at 9:23 am.

That was two Sundays ago.

I was folding the laundry the other night and it occurred to me- I have 3 piles of children’s clothes to put away now, not just 2. It was just one of those moments where it started to sink in that now we have 3.  We’re so blessed. Can’t believe it. B”H for everyone’s health. Now for some sleep…one day at a time, right?
