to Bridgitte and Jonathan Raven
a beautiful son
born in Israel
a baby brother for Boaz and Moriah

(and a third grandbaby for moi)


this little one has been playing games with his aba and ima since last wednesday, when bridgitte went in for a c-section because he was breach (not like when I had his breach father and c-section was not an option in the old days) — then she was sent home because he righted himself — then it was meant to be a c-section yesterday because he had flipped the wrong  way again — then the doctors turned him the right way so they decided to slowly induce but nothing happened all day yesterday, so they started again today and sof, sof,  he arrived safely around 5.00 p.m. israel time and mummy and baby raven are doing well

hopefully a photo will follow – it’s on jon’s blackberry, but he’s not home yet —  been told he has boaz’s shape face and moriah’s nose and favours bridgitte’s father’s side of the family  — can’t wait to meet him — oh and he weighed in at 3.5 kilo
