7 Days.

September 17, 2010

7 Days since I met the newest love of my life. Nick and I have a daughter. Jarah has a sister. It’s crazy to write those words. Our little girl has wiggled into a space in our home and our hearts that we didn’t know was there until she filled it.

Bronte Mahina * welcomed to the spinning, crazy earth at 8:11am * 9/9/10 * 7lbs 3oz * 21 in * Virgo like her mama!

We apparently cause a great deal of confusion with the name pronunciations of our children. I hope it will prove character building for them over time. So what’s up with her name? Well…

Bronte (pronounced Bront-ie): influenced by the sisters Charlotte, Emily and Anne (albeit slightly different accent on the end); means “Thunder” which is to me is a powerful and awe-inspiring natural event; also the name of a small girl Nick once knew who grew up amid the little blue penguins of a SE Australian island

Mahina (pronounced Ma-hee-na): Hawaiian word for moon. Bronte is the newest Mad Moon Mama on the block.

Working on writing up the birth plan…stay tuned. Until then please enjoy some snaps of my sweet family.

    You guys are amazing, and SO beautiful! Bronte looks incredible and my heart did a lil flutter flutter when you introduced her as the newest mad moon mama!! Love that! these pictures totally had me crying from the sweetness- and I think offically pushed me from feeling a wee bit petrified and stuck in the trenches of early prego-ness to being totally excited for those first moments, weeks and months of meeting and sniffing and more sniffing and deeply seeing and observing your new baby. thank you for that!
    I wish to meet little Bronte Mahina soon!
