    This has been a crazy year for our family. Hubby had surgery this summer, our daughter and son-in-law bought a new home, and as a bonus, they made THIS:

    I say that because last year when my daughter had her first ultrasound, she sent me a text along with a copy of the photo with the caption, "I make dis!" xD

    Thank you so much! She was born on my husband's birthday, so she's her Pawpaw's "Special Little Honeybee."

    Her name is Sophia Marie! "Marie" is the middle name that has been passed down to the females in our family, from my grandmother, to me, to my daughter, and now to my granddaughter!

    Sophia Marie! A beautiful name. We also have a traditional feminine name in our family: a version of the name Carol. My daughter is Carolina, one of my middle names is Carol, my aunt was Carol, a great grand aunt was Caroline as was her mother.

    Thank you so much!

    I think name traditions are wonderful; I know that it gives me a strong sense of ties to this we who have gone on before me, and those who have come after me. Carol is a beautiful name!

    I tried to add my long-lost baby cousin Carolinda but the system wouldn't let me edit last time. Funny story about my aunt's name. We always called her Jean for Imogene but since she was born at Christmas, my grandmother gave into the nurses' urgings that she be named Carol for Christmas carol as well. The doctor didn't like Carol. Imagine my aunt's surprise decades later when she got a copy of her birth certificate and saw the doctor had added "ine" after Carol, legally turning her into a Caroline!

    Alas, she died the end of last May. I miss her very much.
