We get asked how to pronounce the kids’ names occasionally. I think both pronunciations are typical… Lay-nah and Il-yah. But, I thought you might enjoy a video of Ilya saying them for you. He says them both with his adorable accent and I think he says their names much better than we do!

He's so precious! I am envious of his skin color and light blonde hair. I have the hair, but I'd love to have his skin tone. Gorgeous!I love his little accent! And I'm glad you kept on calling them these names, because they are cute cute cuuuuute!
Just realized I've pronouncing Lena the wrong way lol But I still love her name. Ilya is too cute!
