We Have a Name!

We decided on a name - about an hour before we left the hospital...

Kaylee Aveolela

I think it suits her perfectly!

Kaylee comes from a combination of family names on my side (Kay is a middle name for several female relatives and Lee is my dad's middle name). Plus, we have always liked names starting with a "K".

Aveolela is Samoan and it means rays of sun. It's pronounced "ah-veh-oh-leh-la". I LOVE the meaning for several reasons. One, she was born in the summer. Two, this birthing experience was definitely a bright spot in my emotional struggles that lingered from my first birthing experience. And lastly, I hope and pray she can be rays of sunshine for the Lord!

I am recovering well and feel SO much better this time around! I promise to post my birth story soon. :)
