So I’ve been slacking on the posts again, lots going on as we get ready for baby. The house was a bachelor pad before I moved in, so I’ve been decorating, finally got the family room organized and neat, had to get rid of my old bedroom furniture to make room for baby’s, etc. Kyla is leaving for the summer on Saturday so I took some time off from work to hang out with her too.
We also got a 4D ultrasound last Thursday and tonight we’re getting maternity/family pictures done.
I got one when I was pregnant with my daughter (over 8 years ago!) and it was done in a medical building and cost over $250… Now the 4D ultrasounds are half as much money and shown on a movie screen. Kyla came with us and we invited my boyfriend’s family to come too. His 93 year old grandmother joined us, she’d never seen a sonogram done before so it was quite an experience for her to see him… He will be her 21st great-grandchild!
He did not cooperate and had his arm in front of his face at first, but the ultrasound tech took some extra time with us to make sure we got some nice pictures of his face.
Here are the pics of Rocco!
Yes, that’s his name. I ordered some adorable hand painted wooden name letters from Etsy for his nursery so it’s official! Rocco Leigh… Leigh is a family name, same middle name as his dad and grandpa. One person pointed out that people will call him “Broccoli” but I don’t think that’s likely to happen. Someone also tried to tell me it was a bad idea to name my daughter Kyla because she could be called “KY” as in the jelly. So far that hasn’t happened :)
Here’s Kyla’s 4D pic on top and his on the bottom… I think they look alike! Then again… all babies kinda look alike especially in the 4D pics…
Can’t wait to meet him… 8 to 10 weeks left! The nursery is getting painted this weekend and his furniture came last week. I am so anxious to get his room set up!
