Please Welcome Ayla Rose!

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Early Thursday morning, our long-awaited Baby Girl Grossman arrived! Her name is Ayla Rose Grossman and both she and mom did a fantastic job (we’d expect no less). For the time-keepers out there, it was about 11 PM on Wednesday night that Holly realized that the baby may be arriving… we were at the hospital at 12:30 AM, and Ayla arrived at 3:21 AM.

Avi and Ezra were extremely excited and met her later that afternoon, as did some local friends. Ayla now graces the front page at: and pictures, of course, are in the Photo Gallery.

Welcome Ayla Rose

And then there were FIVE!

All in all, it has been a good year. We have many of you to thank for all if your help and support through the challenge and for that, we feel very lucky. Much love to you all.

Ezra Bids Farewell to his Paci

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Since his third birthday, Ezra has been doing a lot of growing up in preparation for becoming a big brother. His latest step is disposing of his pacifier, once and for all. We captured the moment on video, now posted in the Photo Gallery.

We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our baby sister (due in just a couple of weeks!) but we stole a moment to take one last (maternity) photoshoot as a family of four, now posted in the Photo Gallery.
