Happy New Year 5771

Shana Tova U'Metukah to everyone! We have been very busy in the last few weeks. Doda Elisheva and Dod Danny were here for a great visit before they went off to another adventure at the Burning Man Festival. Danny taught Avi all about "Hakuna Matata" and how to "be optimistic," and Ellie got a new name, "Ella-sheva." Next, Aunt Daya came back, and she will be with us for a few more months as she is going back to work at the Gates Foundation here in Seattle! Ella is growing into her personality, and she loves to smile and show off her dimples. She also loves to go througha record number of diapers every day, and sleep for very short periods of time at unpredictable intervals. In the meantime, Avi is becoming a little man, and has decided that his new friend Sophie is in fact his "girlfriend." We are thrilled that he is starting off with a nice Jewish girl!
