Finally we can say we are halfway there to meeting our baby boy.
We recently had our 20 week ultrasound and everything looks great. He is an active boy, and Mommy can feel him move all day long (and night!) Dad even felt him kick once!
You would think by Baby #3, naming your child would get easier. Seth and I could not agree on any name…for a boy or a girl. When we found out we were having a boy, Seth was dead set on his name…and not budging.
To be honest, I did not like it at first. I kept saying, “Are you sure? Easton? Like the baseball brand?” However, when I saw that look in Seth’s eyes – that dreamy look – I started to think back when I was pregnant with Kennedy…
I loved the name “Kennedy” for years – and when we found out we were having a girl, I just KNEW that was her name. No other names compared, and it just clicked.
Same thing for Jules. We threw around names for a while, and when I said “Jules Camryn”…we just looked at each other and KNEW that was her name.
That’s exactly the feeling I had when I saw Seth saying “Easton Matthew” over and over. This is just as much his pregnancy as it is mine, and I knew he had his heart set on that name. I guess he has the right to name one of the kids ;)
It grew on me…fast. I now love his name, and I’m so glad Daddy chose the perfect name for our son. Let the monogramming begin :)
Now that Easter is over, I can stop hearing the “Easton” song the girls have been singing…
“Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail…hippity hoppity EASTON’s on his way!”
