A mama who asked for some last-minute thoughts on their ideas for their fourth baby has let me know that they had a girl (!) and gave her the gorgeous, meaningful name … Chiara Marie!
“I usually go past 40 weeks carrying my babies but went in to labor a little earlier than anticipated this week at 38+6 and gave birth at 39 weeks on Wed, 7/20 at 11:22! It was a LONG and HARD labor for a 4th baby, thanks to baby being OP. Mm, back labor is so sanctifying and screamy.
Anyway, we had our FOURTH GIRL!!!!!!! My husband, as I’d mentioned, got final naming rights and went with Chiara Marie. We are smitten and so are her big sisters. Thanks so much for your input on our list of names!“
(“back labor is so sanctifying and screamy” — I love and loathe this line all at once! “sanctifying and screamy” is such a great description!)
Little Chiara was named for Bl. Chiara Luce Badano, who is such a great patron for a girl, and she joins her equally well named big sisters:
Congratulations to the whole family, and happy birthday Baby Chiara!!
