Mom and Dad met at the gym of all places! They are both fitness professionals and were introduced in 2004 when a colleague invited Mom to workout with him and his workout partner. They’ve been together now for 10 years!
It’s a ???
Mom and Dad decided not to find out if they were having a boy or a girl. When the doctor said it was a girl, they both had tears in their eyes. I’m sure big brother is also excited!
For a girl, Mom liked Maliyah (Muh-LI-yah) Grace , but dad liked Maleayah (Muh-lee-yah) Grace. When they couldn’t agree, Mom began looking at different names. Dad remembered a family member had the middle name Grace, so that disqualified the middle name. They had agreed on Kilah (KI-lah) Marie before (but another cousin had a similar name). They were able to agree on Marie as the middle name. In searching baby names, there were 2 requirements. For Dad it had to have a strong meaning and for Mom it had to be unique or unisex. Skylar was a name we both agreed on. Upon meeting her, one Uncle pointed out that her initials are SMH, which is very appropriate because all of her uncles did just that (smh) when they learned it was a girl!
How have the first few days at home been going?
Things have been great. Big brother LOVES his sis. Aside from adjustments to having another newborn and having TWO babies, it’s been amazing!
