8lbs & 20.25 inches long

Two weeks ago our lives were forever changed by this beautiful bundle of joy! Her birth was beautiful and I was so blessed to be surrounded by such a wonderful team to help me labor and deliver her into the world and into our hearts.

We chose Naomi’s name based on Naomi from the Bible (The Book of Ruth). Naomi means “my joy,” “my bliss,” or “pleasantness of Jehovah,” and is a name suggestive of all that is charming, agreeable, attractive. Until deep sorrow overshadowed her, we can understand Naomi having a nature corresponding to her name. Although her character came to be purged and enhanced by her suffering, Naomi had an innate nobility that gave her personality an irresistible charm. And through her suffering, Naomi chose to believe in the promises of God and she saw them realized in the birth of her daughter-in-law’s son, Obed-the father of Jesse, the father of King David. Our prayer is that our sweet Naomi will be a pleasant aroma of Christ to all those around her.

I am so in love with this precious girl! These past two weeks have been a blur, but I’ve enjoyed every single second of it and feel incredibly blessed. I will share her beautifully difficult labor and delivery in another post. For now, I’m delighted to share a few more pictures with you from our newborn photo shoot with my dear friend Katie Reich.
