Rebecca and Josh welcomed their second girl, Alexandra, on December 24. The story behind her name brought tears to my eyes! Read on and get those tissues ready.
“I’m SO glad I found the Birth Haven three years ago. The midwives, students, and doulas there are amazing and I’m super proud of myself for achieving a second natural childbirth. Lexi was born in the water pretty quickly! I started having contractions at 5 am on Christmas Eve (despite not wanting a Jewish Christmas baby! *wink*) and we finally went to the birth center around 5pm. Dad and several midwives were there to “catch” her at exactly 9:18 pm (the same time I was born!) and Josh got to announce “It’s another girl!” after we waited to find out the gender. It was a pretty magical moment!
Rebecca found me from a simple online search and chose me over our mutual love of
My Favorite Things music theater! It just so happens that she and Josh met through mutual friends of theater, as well! Rebecca was working as a stage manager and mentioned to her coworkers that she was looking for a “nice Jewish boy,” and lo and behold, they knew a drummer who was looking for a nice Jewish girl and the rest, as they say, is history! I love their love story! It just makes me want to sing!! (Pun intended.)
Josh and Rebecca, congratulations on baby girl number two!! I’m so thankful that you found me, and even more so that you shared me with your best friends. What an honor it was to document these precious memories for you! I wish you all the love and blessings in this new year! xoxo
