I have so much to post about the last week or so, but most of it will have to wait until the beginning of next week.

It is nice to know that my followers (whoever
some of you may be, and I WOULD someday love to know) have been checking in from time to time.

In Interim,

I will only say, I feel great. Thank G-d.

It was a relief to unload a nine pound three ounce baby and what my Doctor referred to as an "enormous placenta". And considering the frequency of bathroom trips I make, the fluid is still being flushed out from my body. I refuse to get on a scale yet, but I feel much lighter and I believe my pelvic bones have been re-fusing together.

Everything went smoothly, which I do not take fo
r granted and (knock on wood, and all that sort of stuff) he has been a really good baby thus far.

Of course (JULIE) I will share more details later, but in interim, I leave you with some pictures.

I hope this is enough to tie you all over for now. Tonight begins another two day long Jewish Holiday (cuz G-d wants us to EAT more).

It is 50 days since Passover. The Jews wandered the desert and came to Mount Sanai where G-d gave, via Moses the Ten Commandments and and the Torah (Old Testament). We celebrate that moment with a holiday called Shavuos. So everyone, have a great weekend - in interim.

6 have shown Orah a little love:

The last 2 pics are de-lish (the one w/ AM w/ hand near his mouth and the one where Tzvi is holding him.
HAHA, enormous placenta...sounds lovely and considering your nine pounder, not suprising!! Doesn't all of baby's food and nutrients travel through that? wonder it was ginormous.
Happy Milchik fest and dont dare go on a scale till yuntiv is waaaaay over!!!

I hope we will get lots and lots more pictures. Since I can't have another one of my own, I have to make do with pictures I get to see in bloggy land. So thanks for helping me get my daily fix so far!

The pics are great Orah! Especially the one with Tzvi holding him! I love it! Anyway, I hope dinner was ok last night. After I made it it occurred to me that spicy chicken probably wasn't the best thing to give to a nursing mama. Anyway, have fun eating on Yomtov, you still have at least five weeks til you can even start thinking about it!
