Pictures of our little Yirmi

Right after Yirmi was born, they placed him on me. In this picture, his umbilical cord was still attached. He gave a good, reassuring cry :-)

About 15 minutes after the birth - Ohad & I were pretty happy. It's unbelievable how quickly the pain subsides.

Ohad had plenty of time to snuggle with our little boy when we waited to get the OK to go home. We were terribly disappointed when they made us stay another day because his bilirubin was a little high.

Here's a close-up.

We played a special song for Yirmi before we started to get him dressed to go home. How many babies do you know who have an MP4 in their bassinet?

Getting ready to go home. I had bought a set of clothing when I was in the US (it was actually intended for someone else, but I ended up getting them something else because I couldn't part with it...) I love this outfit... (You can actually see the outfit in the next few pictures - the blanket came with it.)

We came into Abigail's nursery school with Yirmi to pick her up, on the way home from the hospital. She was pretty excited. When we got home, she got a chance to hold him.

Here he is in his playpen, looking fairly angelic, if you ask me...

When Nomi came home, she got to hold him too. Both Nomi and Abigail really enjoy holding him when they're lying on my bed, flat on their backs.

Today is our 4th anniversary. Who would have believed we could be so lucky?

We took Yirmi to be weighed today. He's up 4 ounces from his birthweight, so he now weighs 8lbs, 9oz.

Rachel! Congratulations! Yirmi is a dream. You are absolutely glowing in these pictures. You could be an advertisement for HOW TO LOOK JUST AFTER BIRTH: it really isn't that difficult! HaHa!

Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful pictures of your family. Many, many blessings. Loved the MP4 picture.

And it was a delight to see you back on my blog. Yes, the new blog design is fun! My cousin did a painting caricature of me and then digitized it. Come back when you can! And many congratulations once again.
