It’s a Girl!

It’s a Girl!

It’s a girl!!!!!! Pink bows and balloons and ribbons and all! It’s baby #5 for my family, but I’m still pinching myself every day, amazed at the miracle of life and so thankful for the blessings of a healthy new baby. I’m so grateful to my husband, who’s holding down the fort while I get some much needed rest. And to my mom, who’s spoiling me with fresh pastries in the morning, and bedside snacks of fresh figs and cookies. Thank you so much for all your mazal tov’s, messages and emails, they mean the world to me!

They say that “Man Plans and God Laughs” and that’s especially so with childbirth. We thought we had our summer all planned out, but my sweet little girl made her entrance five weeks early at a tiny 5 lbs. and 1 oz. Caring for a preemie is a full time job, and getting life figured out for our brood has been a challenge, but thanks to family and friends, we’re finding our new normal. Of course blogging is going to have to take a back seat for a while, so while I take some maternity leave, I’ve got some amazing blogger friends filling in with guest posts each week! I can’t wait to share amazing recipes from talented bloggers including Amy from WhatJewWannaEat, Sina from TheKosherSpoon,  Melissa from LilMissCakes, Miriam from OvertimeCook, Eitan from CookwithChefEitan, Melinda from KitchenTested and Whitney from Jewhungry!

I’ll be back in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, happy cooking! And don’t forget to follow #babiesfirstdays on Instagram!


Can you guess the babies name? The hint is in the photos!

Post your mazal tov wishes!

  1. MAzel tov on your newest addition! You should only see nachas from your family. If her name is Rosie or of that nature its’s such a beautiful name! Looking into your blogging contest , just have to get the courage to take the leap.

  2. You beautiful Shoshana… How precious! May she bring nachas to those who will get to know her & love her. Od mea v’esrim!

    Aren’t babies the best?!

  4. She’s absolutely beautiful! We are expecting the first grand baby in our family before Rosh Hashana and are so excited to be in baby mode :) Mazel Tov! I’m also super excited about your contest-wonderful idea!

  5. Mazel tov for the addition to your family. Your little flower bloomed early so you can have more nachas. May she and all your children always give you nachas.
    Love your blog.

  6. Mazel Tov!

    She is precious & beautiful . She reminds me of my daughter born at 4 lbs & 13 oz. The best things come in small packages…My daughter is a grown up now with a 2 & a half year old, who will IYH be a big brother in Nov.

    I’m guessing your baby’s name is Rose or Varda.

    May you continue to enjoy much Nachat from her & her siblings.

    Take good care of yourself! They need you!


    may she add much more love and happiness for your lifetime.

  8. What a beautiful little girl. Mazel tov!! L’Shana Tova to you and your family. Much good health, good fortune and happiness for years to come.
