Today, the baby formally known as BC is 8 days old. It's nearly unbelievable how time seems to be flying. Before the birth, HD and I were at odds on the "circumcision decision." One thing that we had chosen to do--if we decided to circumcise--was host a bris and hire a mohel (pronounced moyil) to perform the minor surgery. Obviously we did not have to come to any conclusions and that discussion may be revisited if and when there is a BC2. In Jewish culture the bris is held on the eighth day. If a daughter is born into the family, it's a baby naming ceremony. Due to scheduling and availability, our naming ceremony was on the fifth day.
Today HD and I were able to spend some exclusive time with Zea enjoying our expanding family and acknowledging the changes she is bringing to our relationship. There is no way to describe how much joy she brings us. From her miscellaneous funny faces to her random cues and involuntary smiles, we are doing our best to enjoy this--our first time babymoon.
Here's our first family pic!!!
