Our baby could have been named C-SPAN

Fitting for a total politics junkie mom, Raphael Max was born on Election Day at 6:38 PM.

He's 9 lbs 2 oz. and measures 21 inches long.

We're all doing well.

Jen,

This is Naomi from the Adas Mikvah. I hope this is okay with you, but I have to admit that I've been lurking here for a long time, keeping my fingers crossed for this day!!

I am so happy for you! I wish you and your families a huge mazal tov! You look beautiful in this picture.

I hope you will come back to the mikvah if and when it is right for you. Usually a woman will come 6 weeks after having a baby boy. I love to babysit while the mama immerses!!

In the meantime, best of luck with your baby. I love his name...It is both of my sons' middle names!!

Warmly,
Naomi
