Imagine having a dozen

Well, no, my grandchildren are not replicating by the dozen as this photo for James' Weekend Reflections would have you believe.

It is just Eyal having fun at Jerusalem's Science Museum.
He and his big brother Dean and their parents were back in Israel for a visit one year ago.

On Wednesday Eyal himself became an older brother.
He is two and a half now.
Aww, look how tender he looks holding his baby sister.
Thank you, all my blog-friends, for the warm wishes you wrote today and yesterday. Naomi and Guy are enjoying them too.
Baby's name will be Libby. In Hebrew, the word libi means "my heart."

How sweet Dina, Libby, my heart. I also love the reflection in the mirror of your grandson. Perfect, oh to be that young again.

Gallow said...

An excellent choice for weekend reflection. Well done.

Very cute. I love the meaning of your grand-daughter's name.

James said...

That is a really neat reflection. The amount of reflections is amazing.

Congratulations Dina! How nice for Naomi that it went so quickly! and that she could return home after just a few hours. LOL 2 years ago my sister in law waited a bit too long and the birth of her second child took place in their parking lot! You can just feel the love on the picture of Eyal and his new baby sister. Don't they have any plans on living in Israel ;-) Shabat Shalom my dear♥

Your first picture is so funny and the second so lovely: Eyal looks a little worried, and I can understand him...
A warm welcome to Libby, the name is really beautiful!

Hard to believe there is only one little boy in that first pic! I thought it was at least twins!!!
Congratulations on the arrival of your new grand-daughter Libby. In Arabic, the word for heart is rather similar: Gulbi.

I love it when you give us language lessons. I will always remember libi. The reflection picture is just perfect, as was your humorous text!

Just caught this!

Congratulations, Prayers and Blessings to the family!

Human Birth is always amazing. It's like God lets us have a teeny-tiny taste of what it's like for Him as the Creator of ALL things.
