My people how body? As for me I am tired...waking up in the night to nurse e nor easy oh. Let's salut mom's who do it, especially the one's who have to wake up in the night, with no help, and then still have to go to work and huzzzzzle for the family. I salute every mom! And every dad that helps.
Last Friday was our baby's naming ceremony-I've never attended a full naming ceremony before so I didn't know what was expected. The process ours took was this: Pastors came and officiated the ceremony- shared the word, prayed for the baby, took offering and gave it back to us (I was surprised at that part), announced the baby's names and prayed for him and all of us., item 7 and dance dance dance. That was how it went.
I know it's different in other places, even different from the traditional way of naming ceremonies. How is naming ceremony done where you're from? I've been wondering also if it's just Yoruba's that name after 7 days...why 7 days? Why not give mommy a chance to recover and at least look a bit like who she was before the belle enter. I felt like a whale in that buba I wore, of course my skin is about fifteen shades of black right now- my feet and hands are still puffy and I'm generally in discomfort. Why can't we wait one month for naming??? Glad it's done now sha- at least my smally now has an identity.
So here are his names:
Titobioluwa Oluwademilade Ithiel Odusanya
Titobioluwa - The Greatness of God
Oluwademilade - God Has Crowned Me
Ithiel (Hebrew) - God Is With Me
But you know Yoruba people always have a looming list of names donated by Uncles, Aunties and almost every family member that wishes to name the child. The entire list of names are on my instagram page. Oh gosh...I uploaded a short clip of his smile...so adorable! Click HERE to see!
I wonder what I'll call my baby on my blog. Maybe Chief? Since that's what we've been calling him at home. Chief for now until I figure out another name. I have so much in my head about being a new mom already so I guess that's going to be another new angle to my blog :D I need a makeover already!
Where are all the mommy's and mommy bloggers (I'm feeling overwhelmed and I have so many questions-i could use your experience)...let me know if you are one in the comments section below.
