Lovable Libby

.
Libby looked so little next to the gigantic poster on the outside wall of a baby goods store in Hadassah Ein Kerem.
My daughter brought Libby to meet the relatives in Israel last September, for just a short visit.
Now, back home in Australia, lovely Libby is up and walking and will celebrate her first birthday in two weeks!
.
In Hebrew the word libbi means "my heart."
.
Luckily for us, today is L Day at ABC Wednesday.

She's a year old already? That is just amazing. Time sure does fly. Libby is absolutely beautiful, just like her two brothers.

How wonderful for you all, and for 'libbi' - such a wonderful name for a grand-daughter. As I am in Paris right now, I have just a small inkling of how you must miss them so. When do you hope to next visit Sydney?

Dina said...

Kay, yep, they grow so fast.

Karl and Roger, thanks. That poster was REALLY big.

Julie, welcome to the Northern Hemisphere. I have no travel dates planned, just the ever-present hope of seeing the kids soon either here or there. And my son and his son live in Los Angeles. In our family it would help if we had wings.

Aw, they grow too fast, don't they? My GD is already 3!!! And the GS is 7...

I love visiting your blog. The pictures of Jerusalem make me so homesick. We could live 120 years and never capture all the beauty and uniqueness of Jerusalem and all her people. She has many lovers. I am from Northern Israel, the hills of the beautiful Galilee at the top end of the Hula Valley.
Libi is lovely and I can surely say libi b'aretz.

Dina this picture is amazing - the contrast in size is spectacular.

Early Happy Birthday wishes to Libby - I love that her name means "my heart", it says how much love surrounds her.

I can relate to your ever-present wish to see the kids as often as possible... (my son is in Australia, I haven't seen him in 2 years)

What a lovely contrast!

VP said...

Great eye... and happy birthday!

Kate said...

Ah, Dina! Libby definitely is a heart-turning baby. What a joy for you, especially when she visits.

Meryl said...

Mazal tov on your granddaughter. You must miss her and her family. This is a great shot, though. You're right, Lovely Libbi Looks so Little! (You can make a little picture book for her...)

Rayna Eliana said...

Time flies by with these little grandies...doesn't it??!!

I can't believe Emily will be four in May, and Logan will be two in June.

Lisa said...

Libby is a perfect name for her. What a cutie. And against the giant poster, it's a great shot!
