Corey and I are thrilled to announce that we welcomed our little girl — Kirra Max Bohan — the morning of June 24th, 2016. I am in heaven on Earth! She weighed a perfect 8 pounds 4 ounces, and we couldn’t be happier to finally hold her in our arms. To tell you the truth, I haven’t stopped staring at her since she arrived. There are no words to describe the amount of love I have for her… I never thought I could feel so many feelings for someone so small.

One thing I learned about baby naming is you have to say the names out loud! I have loved the name Kirra for a while now, and when I read my top 3 names to Corey, he loved it, too! Kirra is also the name of an amazing surf spot in Australia, so it has double meaning! For those of you who have asked about her middle name, Max — we named her after my grandpa, Max, who unfortunately passed away about a month ago. She was due on his birthday, and he couldn’t wait to meet her. He would have been so proud… I love and miss him so much. I know she would have melted his heart, as she’s done to mine, and I would do anything to have them meet, even if its just for a brief moment.

Looking back on my pregnancy, I was lucky to have very few problems! I kept hearing horror stories of miserable pregnancies and labor nightmares, but the only thing I ended up dreading was my C-Section. Kirra just wasn’t feeling the flip… Can you really blame her, though? However, now that it is all said and done, I couldn’t be happier to have a healthy, strong little girl — my scar is nothing but a battle wound!

Everyone has been waiting so patiently for photos and comments from me, but I have been soaking up every second with Kirra, Corey, and our families. As far as photos go, we will post soon. Until then, we appreciate your respect in allowing us to enjoy these special moments with our daughter in private.

We can’t wait to embark on this new journey as a family, and I hope you continue to follow along. I will post updates as often as possible, so keep checking back for more!

XOXO,
