On New Year's Eve our Bodhi Haze entered the world. New Year's has always been my absolute favorite and having this date as Bodhi's birthday is just perfect. It is a year end celebration & the start to a fresh new year filled with adventure, big dreams and wonderment.
When it came to naming Bodhi (boh-dee), giving him a name that honored our journey to him, the loss of our pregnancy just before becoming pregnant with him and the loss of his twin who stayed beside him for the entire pregnancy was very important to me.
Bodhi is a Sanskrit name translated as enlightenment and/or awakening. It was under the Bodhi tree where Buddha received enlightenment.
Our Bodhi, my peaceful warrior came into the world at 8 lbs 8 oz and 21 inches. He is 10 days old today and his days are filled with peaceful sleep. When he is awake, he gazes into your eyes, gives you sweet smiles and tells you so many stories with his powerful eyes.
My heart is full and at ease now that Bodhi is snuggled into my arms.
