Baby Boy

It's been a busy week in the Starr household!

Yesterday, we had Baby's bris, and loved celebrating with friends and family!

His name is Moshe Yehuda! Moshe (the Hebrew for Moses) is after my father-in-law who passed away several years ago, and Yehuda (Hebrew for Judah) is a name we chose to honor the crazy circumstances of our Moshe's birth. The full birth story is coming soon, but suffice it to say that baby boy had a dangerous birth and could have had a different outcome, so we are very grateful to be bringing him home safe and sound. The name Yehuda comes from the words for thankfulness and praise to G-d. so we chose it to thank Him for our baby boy's safe birth!

The gentleman himself is mostly sleeping a lot:

Love it:)

And a quick family shot from yesterday!

And, because I have a *slight* obsession with baby names, how did you choose YOUR children's names? Or your favorite names in general?


  1. He is absolutely precious, Keshet! Congratulations!

  2. That paci is too cute! Congrats little Moshe! Elizabeth is my middle name, as well as Simon's mum's middle name. I've always loved it. Caroline just seemed to fit. :-)

  3. I was figuring there was a story when the bris ended up being on Sunday. So glad things worked out! Mazel tov...we love the name Moshe ;)

  4. Congratulations, Keshet and family!

  5. I am so glad he arrived safely. And beautiful name for a beautiful boy xxx

  6. Congratulations! Wishing you all health & happiness :-)

  7. I'm so glad that he is here and healthy! LOVE his name and the meaning : ) Beautiful family!

  8. So glad everything worked out! Love his name - to me it definitely sounds like a grown-up name. But maybe that's because the only people I know named Moshe are grown men :)

    We chose our first daughter's name from a sci-fi book (hubby was reading it while we were struggling for names), and the second daughter's name from a list online, but it is also a character from a book (which neither of us have read, yikes). They are similar in style and sound. Both have Indian names as middle names to honor my side of the family. We slightly adjusted the spelling of second daughter's middle name to honor my hubby's grandfather who passed away several years ago. I love it when it all works out nicely :D


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I love hearing your thoughts:)
