Dear Sara Bela, Today was your most exciting West Philly day yet. We started out with a visit from your Safta (the hebrew word for grandmother) Susie and Rachie. It's hilarious to see them negotiate over who gets to hold you next. They both love you so much and we know that you'll learn grace, love and family from both of them.

After a fun visit, our neighbor Teresa walked by. Teresa and Rachie talked for a while about schools for kids in our neighborhood and how hard we want to work to make sure you and all kids get a great education. Teresa had great advice for us and wonderful stories about her birth of Gus, who is now a beautiful 4 year old. Our dear friend Mars stopped by briefly with delicious cheese cake cupcakes and borscht. Beets and cheese are big favorites in our household. This conversation involved us eating many handfuls of concord grapes grown on our porch. We sat under the shade of our grape vines leaves, protecting you from the sun as we chatted with our neighbors and family.
