With both Liberty and Leila we had their names picked out before the ultrasound. they were sent in stone. we didn't have to discuss it or spend lots of time trying to figure out which name we liked best or anything like that. yesterday when we went in for our ultrasound with this new baby we had two girl names we were debating on. then we found out we are indeed expecting another girl, so we needed to pick which name to use. most of you know we have been looking at zona caroline and ainsley augusta. after spending hours last night trying to pick the perfect name for our third girl, we just didn't think zona or ainsley were a good pick (we still like those names, just not for this baby). we were up until after midnight deciding on just the right name. we researched online and found name meanings and all that fun stuff. we came up with two names we loved, watched the ultrasound again, asked liberty's opinion, and finally came up with our baby girl's name. it was weird to spend so much time trying to figure out a name since we hadn't had to deal with that before. i'm sure you're all wondering now what her name will be...no worries, it's not a secret! we chose Nadia Zenevieva. Nadia means "hope," and Zenevieva means "woman for the people." we love it! Zenevieva may throw you off...it's the slavic & german form of Genevieve (a name that i love). jonathan has a slavic background and wanted to incorporate that into our daughter's name. Nadia also has a slavic/russian background.
alright...now that you've read my long version of choosing Nadia's name, here are some of the ultrasound pictures from yesterday. throughout the ultrasound Nadia kept putting her arms in front of her face as if she was shy...so precious! her heartbeat was in the 140's.
