Baby Naming

So for almost a week now, gnomi and I have been parents, and our world has turned delightfully upside-down.

Today in shul we gave our daughters names. Please say hello to

Elisheva Meira Burstein
Yael Batya Burstein

As Nomi noted already, Elisheva Meira is named for my great grandmother Elizabeth and Nomi's great grandfather Meir. Yael Batya is named for my father Joel and our friend David's father Julius or Yehuda (who died the Saturday night before Nomi's surgery) and for Nomi's grandmother Betty.

I'll have more details later on the significance of the names, once I have the time to write them up...say, in about twenty years.
