The Story Continues

5 Sep

*L*i*l*a*c*h***Y*a*g*u*r* (In Hebrew, pronounced lee-lach) was born at 1:45am on September 5th, to the immense relief of her parents, perfect in every way.

34 hours after induction began, with no major complications. Will update more when I’m in front of a real computer. We want to be careful with her online presence so please refer to her as “the bunny” in the comments.

Holy crap you guys. I can’t believe she’s really here…

    Welcome, Bunny! Her name is my absolute favorite aroma of a floral sort, I am sure she smells just as sweet – sniff her a few hundred extra times for me! That lovely baby smell fades all too fast. So supremely happy for you, Mo! She is just lovely, and I hope you are both doing well and enjoying each other!

  30. L September 5, 2013 at 19:31 #

    SO much happiness and joy for you all on the arrival of your beautiful bunny! May the healing and sleeplessness begin. May the holding and loving continue for ever. New bunnies are so tiny so briefly…… in about one year she will walk and express her every wish and whim…… May your days and nights be filled with joy and glory. HURRAH for her perfection….

  31. Kerstin September 5, 2013 at 19:31 #

    She is amazing, and I am sitting here in my office crying real tears of joy and relief for you. And I don’t even KNOW you. That’ll be fun to explain…lol.

    There will be more freakouts…know that. But it’s far easier to calm yourself when you can snuggle your bunny and know she is well and whole.

    So very happy for you and Schmerson!
