And his name is…

Sorry, sorry. I know, I’ve kept you all in suspense way too long. Our son’s name is Zev Jacob Gurock, and in Hebrew, it will be Ze’ev Yitzchak. Zev is named for all four of his Great-Grandfathers, Randolph Chester, Jack (Jacob) Gurock, Irwin (Yitzchak) Grundman, and Jacob Beker. His primary namesake is Randolph, Eli’s maternal grandfather, who passed away one ... Read More »

Welcome to the world, baby boy

Eli and I are thrilled to welcome our son into the world. He was born this afternoon at 2:34pm after a reasonably quick (5.5 hour) labor. I was induced – sort of – this morning. My doctor broke my waters, we walked around for a couple of hours, and things took off nicely from there. He weighed in at 7lbs, ... Read More »

Who’s afraid of cord blood?

Interesting. A couple of weeks ago, we participated in the Viacord-sponsored Ultimate Baby Shower. Over the course of the evening, there were three presentations, one by an obstetrician speaking on behalf of ViaCord, one by a sonographer talking about 3D/4D ultrasound, and one by me – talking about baby gear. Each presentation took about 20 minutes. There was also a ... Read More »

The end of the line?

I apologize that it has been so quiet here. Believe it or not, I am still pregnant. As of today, I am a week and three days overdue. On Tuesday morning, if there’s still no baby, my doctor will break my waters and hopefully that will be enough to get things moving. Meanwhile, I’m trying to stay busy and keep ... Read More »

The “do” date

Today is my due date. The little countdown application on my Facebook page says “0 days remaining.” And even though I’ve already been through this twice before, already gone beyond two due dates in the past, I can’t help feeling a bit stood up. Of course I get it – it’s just a date, it’s totally arbitrary, and in fact ... Read More »

New from Stokke

Today we had a presentation of the new Stokke product launches slated for the ABC show. There are some interesting developments. Here’s a breakdown (this is a long one): Read More »

Still here…

Three days away from my due date and no baby yet. Once again, my body is playing all kinds of tricks on me, with contractions coming and going at will. But having gone at least a week overdue with my first two, I’m not expecting this one to be any different. Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to enjoy the end of ... Read More »

Sneak Peek at the Phil & Teds Dash

Today we had a visit from a couple of representatives from Regal-Lager, the US distributor of Phil & Teds, as well as the new US representative for Phil & Teds, who works directly for the New Zealand outfit. We were pleased as punch when they told us they were bringing us a Dash to play with. As it turns out, ... Read More »

Happy Birthday, Magic Beans!

July 7th is the anniversary of the day we opened our doors for the first time in our Brookline store. It’s incredible that four years have passed since that warm evening when we finally finished putting all the merchandise on the shelves and quietly unlocked the front doors. We had invited a few friends and family members to come by ... Read More »
