Here are a few fun facts about this little guy…
Tell us about that first moment when you saw your baby.
Luisa: As soon as the doctor held him up, my first thought was “Well, he’s definitely a Murney!”
Sean: I literally had no thoughts. My mind was blank and I was crying. I was just so happy and couldn’t believe he was finally here.
What was your baby’s birth weight and length?
8 lbs 6 oz, 20.5 inches long
Is there a story behind your baby’s name?
His full name is Calvin John Keola’okekai Murney. Calvin is a name we both liked. John is Luisa’s father’s name. Keola’okekai (Kay-oh-lah’okay-kai) is Hawaiian for “life and strength of the ocean”. Sean’s family is Hawaiian and it is tradition to give the baby a Hawaiian name. When we were in Hawaii visiting family earlier this year, Sean’s Tutu (grandmother) and cousin helped us decide on the name after his cousin had a dream about the three of us at the beach.
Give us the scoop. What has surprised you the most about parenthood? Are there any funny stories or firsts that you’d like to share?
Sean: A great first for me would be changing his diaper at 3 am and after getting him bundled up to go to sleep again hearing that he has once again pooped in his diaper.
Luisa: Instinct definitely kicks in right away! I didn’t believe it before he was born, but somehow you just know what to do. A first for me would be getting thrown up on, pooped on and peed on all in the same day by the same small little boy.
What did you like best about your experience with Crystal Jo?
She was so patient with our little guy. She took her time to make sure he was comfortable and allowed him time to calm down after each adjustment to make sure she could get a great shot!
