GILAD IS HOME ! ! !

A picture is worth a thousand words, we’re told, so here’s 10K’s worth…. visual proof that we’ve sprung baby Gili from the hospital, transported him across state lines, had his ecstatic big sister feed him his first bottle at home, and already begun not sleeping well! A brilliant pre-Pesach miracle. (The current plan is to “bless the son” at shul next Monday, his 8th full-day with us, around 3:30pm; email us for details)…..

That’s us — “all four Scherlinders” (yes we’re running!), and two Helpers, out and about for the first time ever.  And below is the ‘discharge’ photo:

We love the connection Sara has with Gili.  Witness:

And the same goes for his grandparents, Nana & Papa:

Much more to be said, but we’ll do it down the line.  For now we look forward to thinking in 3-4-hour intervals, being zonked out tired between feedings, reveling in the sweet cuteness of our infant son, paying extra attention to our super Sara, and having the time of our lives….
