Solely In Black and White: Guess what….?

Guess what….?

So in case you haven’t heard yet, the wife and I had a baby girl recently. :-) I now understand what people mean when they say newborns look funny. Aside from the cone-headedness attribute, most babies come out rather swollen. (I might be biased, but I think my little girl looked relatively cute at birth, but to be honest it took me a few hours to really get used to her “looks.”) As far as labor and delivery go, I’m really at a loss for words.  It’s one of those scary life-altering, complicated, magical moments.  I won’t forget how the doctor conciliatorily said; “now the only thing you have to worry about is shidduchim.” Great… :-/  

In any event, we are looking for suggestions for a creative name for the little one, for blogging purposes as she already has a real life name, at the moment. 

I’m guessing this little addition to our family means I can kiss sleeping goodbye. It’s a shame you can’t bank or invest in sleep. Any takers for midnight blogging/posting? :-P I think (hope) we’ll be (relatively) fine, at least in time (or so they say). Or as the saying goes "god watches over children and fools." Personally, I think I just need to figure out how to type and feed the baby at the same time and all will be well… ;-) 


  1. How about "Gray" - she's a mix of black and white.

    Kinda bland, though.

    Great photo!

    And of course, mazel tov! You have your own kish lein! (I totally misspelled that.)

  2. :) Wow that is such great news and so cute!! Mazal tov, enjoy the little bundle!

  3. Mazel Tov!!!

    Um...names...there are so many beautiful girl names! I know this might sound fluffy, but I'm a big believer that someone's name is their essence and the name that you pick should be connected to a certain essence that you want to impart of your new baby girl :)

    Whichever name you choose, may she live up that essence and may she bring you both a lot of nachas!

  4. Thanks everyone!

    Princess Lea, I know! I’m hoping someone will buy it for us as a gift, if not we’ll have to buy it. Ha! I’m going to have to teach my wife how to say not in front of the children. ;-)

    Mystery Women, you should have seen some of my nephews. Funny looking would not even describe them! Honestly, our baby isn’t all that funny looking, and some even think she was rather cute at birth.

    ZP, I’m referring to her blog name not her real name. Although that does present a good question; does one’s blogging name have a connection to their essence?

  5. Ah ha...that explains others' suggestions lol

    That is an interesting question. I'd like to think that it many ways its the way that you want to portray yourself...
