Amani is here!!! (pics inside)
Naming ceremonies are very popular in Nigerian culture. It is called many different names depending on the tribe. In the Yoruba tribe, my tribe, it is also called Isomoloruko! This day is such a joyous occasion. On this day, the parents, relatives, and the community come as one to pray for the baby and the name chosen by the parents is announced to everyone with the meaning. Honestly, this is by far my fav occasion. This day, my husband and I presented our intentional prayers for our baby to God. Remarkable right?!
My prayer was similar to the one I did for Amir where I was intentional and pure as I could be. I prayed for her from head to toe. I was told my prayer was long. LOL! I find myself praying longer and in depth these days as a mom and wife. I am sure a lot of parents can relate.
I am so grateful for everyone who made it. We of course finished the night with good food and music. Check out the pics below and feel free to leave a comment. Love yall!
