2: I was born on November 23, 2011, at 1:34 p.m. at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. My weight was 3,390 kg, my length was 51.5 cm. It was a nice and sunny day in New York, a Wednesday, right before the Thanksgiving. I was delivered by Doctor Marc Engelbert.

14: On February 26, 2012, I came to Moscow, Russia, and lived in 11/13 Trjohprudnyi Pereulok, Apt. 39 (Patriarshie Ponds Area)
16: My Milestones: I first smiled at the age of two weeks (or at least Mommy believes that I did). I found my hands at the age of two months and my feet at the age of four months. I first laughed at the age of four months. I first rolled over from back to tummy on April 25, 2012 and sat up alone at the age of six and a half months. At nine months I finally started crawling, at twelve months I stood alone, and on January 19, 2013 I made my first solo steps. My first tooth was upper left central incisor, and it appeared on April 14, 2012. The next one, the upper right central incisor followed on April 27, 2012. By the age of twelve months I had ten teeth! I was exclusively breastfed until May 1, 2012, when Mommy added some rice cereal into the milk. I liked it! I first clapped my hands when I was eleven months old, and waved buy-buy one month later.
20: "What A Life Eating Sleeping Playing... And Being Cute"
23: Things I Love: Months One - Three: I love to sleep and to eat every two hours, especially during night time. I love my Fisher Price sea horse with Mozart lullabies, my B-Cloud sheep and my Fisher Price swing. I love having a bath. Months Four - Six: I love my silicone pacifier, my Fisher Price Kick & Play Piano and playing with my feet. I love being around people and exploring new things. I love when Mommy sings to me, and I always smile. I love to cuddle. I love and laugh when someone holds me up in the air or tickles my belly. Months Seven - Twelve: I love baby swing in Central Park, my Fisher Price Jumperoo, my Little Tikes bike, and chewing on everything I can get a hold of. I love dogs and I love attention. I love playing with carton boxes, different packages, and my all time favorites are Daddy's glasses and Mommy's phone.

I took multiple train rides between Moscow and Saint Petersburg (Mommy had to travel for work). I lived in the U.S.A. and in Russia, and twice visited my Grandparents in Israel. I prayed at the Kotel (the Western Wall) in Jerusalem. I made two friends - Mark Sokolov and Josef Rubin, both in Moscow, both just a few months older than me. I visited the Moscow Zoo and didn't like it. I was out quite a few times to many restaurants both in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. I learned to say Mama and Papa, to crawl, to stand by myself and to clap my hands.
