Newborn Baby Boaz; slightly jaundiced

Six months old and getting into everything

My baby’s first birthday; love the box more than its contents

Sixteen months; chicken pox and his first haircut


If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness
If children live with fairness, they learn justice
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live

With my love and best wishes to everybody here in blogdom. Hope you all have a lovely weekend and Shabbat Shalom and b’ezrat Hashem, please G-d, I will have some beautiful news to share with you all very very soon……..

p.s. have literally just put the phone down from talking to Jonathan and his mother-in-law, who has travelled from Long Island to be with her daughter…. and…. nothing is happening…. yet. Will keep you posted. I jump everytime the phone rings.

It’s… Boaz time!

I think waiting for the phone to ring is one of the the worst feelings. I hope you get your (good) news soon!

I’m jumping too … where oh where is baby!??!

okay… I thought the baby was due next Wednesday. Jon tells my mum it’s due tomorrow. Now he calls me and tells me he thinks they’re all wrong and it’s later still….

Have a great weekend Ann.

You must be on pins and needles Ann. Keeping fingers crossed for Happy News Soon!!

I count on Fridays with my Boaz Ann. Thank you for the beautiful post. I am so excited about the new baby. Do let us know when Boaz has a sidekick. 🙂

Beautiful pictures, Ann. Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

The Beautiful Boaz. I could bite lumps out of him. See ya.

Shabbat Shalom

Please let us know when you get the baby news. Can’t wait to see pics of Boaz with his little brother or sister.

I love the poem, and I believe every word of it – I’ve seen firsthand how a parent’s negative or positive attitude affects their children.

Thanks for sharing.

That children thing is 100% true. The kids I see at my church’s mission have the first part down to an art 😦

Boaz is beautiful as always 🙂

I will be gone next week but I will be back eventually, God willing.


Thank you for an inspirational post.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the phone call 🙂
