Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a blessed and wonderful day full of good food, friends and family.

At our family gathering this afternoon, Dave and I shared Lovebug's name. We felt it was a good time as both of our families were together and we know her name, like Sylvia's, will not be changing before her arrival in February. Also like Sylvia, we knew her name from the day we knew we were expecting. She has always been our little Veda Katherine Ertman Trowbridge.

Katherine is in honor of Dave's younger sister who passed away many years ago. She may not be with us in body but she is certainly with us in spirit and we wanted to acknowledge how important she is to our family. Katherine is a beautiful name that will now be part of two beautiful souls.

How wonderfull you picked this name. I never had the chance to meet Katie, she passed away some weeks before we were visiting the States again and that was very very sad.
Wow still 5 1/2 months to go for seeing you all again.
Lots of love, Ria

I was wondering about the name Veda until I saw the other comments. I also looked it up on a baby names site and saw that it is Sanskrit for "knowledge", according to http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/meaning_of_Veda.html. Very interesting.

I was always a big Katherine Hepburn fan, so I've always loved that name. Besides, I love the idea of using meaningful family names for kids!

Well, I see the site URL didn't fit, so I'll break it up into manageable pieces. Here it is again:

Now, if you copy all of that and remove the interior spaces, that's the site URL.
