We now have a link to shutterfly www.mileslevin.shutterfly.com that allows you to view our latest photos, the password for viewing is ram1g1tte1, please note that we used three '1's instead of 'i' and 'L'.
There has also been a recent request to further explain the naming of our children, Rami, Gittel, Moshe, and Rosalie, and why we kept with no pattern (Israeli, Yiddish, Biblical, and American names)
Rami is short for Avraham(y) ( av-ramy), who was his great great grandfather on Valerie side. His birth certificate says Abraham Lander Levin.
Gittel Tovah is named after Miles' maternal Grandmother Gittel. Her English name was Gussy, but we decided to go with an English first name of Jessica. Since Gittel in yiddish means good, and since she was born on a tuesday, (On the 'tuesday' of creation G-d used the word good twice), we gave her the middle name of Tovah, which is good in hebrew..
Moshe Gedalya is named for Miles' paternal Uncle, Gary Marc Levin (Moshe Gedalya). We decided to reverse the order of his English First and middle name to get Marc Gary Levin for his birth certificate. I believe there is a conservative radio talk show host named Marc Levin as well, nicknamed 'the great one' We think of Moshe as 'the cute one'.
For Rosalie, we should thank Nora, Val's sister for coming up with this name. Rosalie is named for Valerie's mother's mother ( Rachel), and for the baby's mother's mother's mother's mother ( Leah). Her English middle name of Emma, is for Miles' Great grandmother, for whom we don't know the hebrew name.
Here are the big things going on right now with us; and just remember it's only deja vu if it feels like something has happened before, this is the real deal.
1) Valerie is pregnant and due B"T in early September. To clarify, the previous baby, Moshe was born on May 14, 2004.
2) We are currently living in Riverdale, NY (see info below),
but we are now house hunting in Teaneck.
3) Miles has finished his first year of Residency at Montefiore and is enjoying his program
4) Rami and Gittel are attending the Riverdale Y Nursery and are enjoying their status as the resident religious fanatics
