Many have asked what does Siobi mean?
Siobi : pronounced See-oh-bee
It is short for Chidintukwasiobi which is ‘God is Faithful’ in Igbo.
When choosing her name we decided to work backwards. We knew what we wanted her name to mean and between an Igbo bible and Google, her name was formed.
God’s faithfulness is a theme tune that runs through our family. We see it day in day out and continue to be in awe of what God does for us.
Now obviously Chidintukwasiobi is a lot for a child to spell so she’ll be known as Siobi.
Motherhood is treating me well. Physically I am feeling a lot better than I did in the first week and it’s amazing how quickly you learn to know your child. I can change a nappy super fast and have learnt to do many everyday tasks one handed! Emotionally every time I look at her I can’t quite believe she is the same baby I carried for nine months. She has her own little personality and really only ever cries when she is tired or hungry. The love I have for her is so deep and I want to do everything in my power to protect and nurture her.
Labour seems like a distant memory and life has become a whirlwind of hugs, kisses, feeds and nappy changes.
Motherhood – I heart it.
