I wish I had more photos to show you, but the whole connect-the-camera-to-the-computer business takes more than the .05 seconds I have left over from trying to convince my baby that eating is fun:) So stay tuned for those, and forgive me the repeat!
Bunny got her official name in the synagogue yesterday, so I get to share it with all of you! We named her Eliana Bluma, and are calling her Ellie for short:)
It's funny because I've always been very into baby names, but Eliana was never even on my list. When I first suggested it to S, I told him, "you're going to hate this name, but the meaning would be perfect!" S normally dislikes any name that's too long or too feminine, but he actually liked it. After months of thinking about it and debating over nicknames, we decided Eliana was probably going to be the name we chose. As I mentioned above, the meaning is what cinched it. Eliana means "my G-d has answered" in Hebrew, and in the end we just couldn't think of a more perfect name for this baby we wanted so badly and for so long.
Welcome to the world, Ellie-bean. We're so glad you're here!
PS--Since you guys are such generous people, please send out a happy thought that bunny will be able to go home with us from the hospital today--she may need to stay under the bili lights, and I hate to be apart from her! Thank you!
