My Mother's Day Present!

For those of you who haven't met our sweet boy, Solomon, or our newest addition, Naamah, here they are:

Solomon
שְׁלֹמֹה


Born: June 30, 2006

From the Hebrew name שְׁלֹמֹה (Shelomoh) which was derived from Hebrew שָׁלוֹם (shalom) "peace". Solomon was a king of Israel, the son of David, renowned for his wisdom. Supposedly, the Book of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon in the Old Testament were written by him.



Naamah
נַעֲמָה

Born: March 31, 2008

Means "pleasant" נַעֲמָה in Hebrew, pronounced: NAY-a-ma. This name is borne in the Old Testament by both a daughter of Lamech (Gen. 4:22) and by the woman thought to be the most beloved wife of Solomon, the only one who appears to have borne him a son, Rehoboam (1 Kings 14:21, 31).


Naamah was a present to me from my sweet husband for Mother's day. We named her as Solomon's bride; his beloved whom he is believed to have written Song of Solomon for. Song of Solomon is a beautiful book of the Bible and is a picture of Christ's love for his beautiful bride, the church. We will call her Nay-nay for short.
