Ezra would have been Eden. And we thought arya would be Eden too but I had a gut feeling. More like an explosion. As soon as they said its a girl I was like OMG arya Athena!
Holden was Holden since day one - before we even knew the gender. It was my one and only name I had ever been fond of. Jon was against naming a girl Holden, though. And his middle names were VERY last minute. I didn’t want middle names. But.. alas, for 10 generations on my dad’s side - there is a ‘David’ (and since my dad has two girls…. I was stuck with it as a middle name). So Holden is Holden Jon David… which I was ONLY okay with because JD Salinger wrote Catcher in the Rye, thus his name is totally themed.
When he was born, though, he was most definitely NOT a Holden. I felt like he was so big and so strong that he needed a more manly name. Jon called him Bruce for, like, the first month or two of his life.
I do LOVE the alliteration of Arya’s name.
Well, thank you so much!
We’re always overwhelmed when anyone says anything about us on here. haha.
The love is mutual! :)

Stahp being so adorable - I have things to do, but I just want to lay down and watch him sleep.
We’d have called her Bob for short. ;)
What about Ezra the Caveman?
Oh, just driving a firetruck
I was informed today that Ray Manzarek passed away on Monday - how I missed the news is beyond me. I am deeply saddened - even if his novel ‘Light My Fire’ made my blood boil.
I am positive Jim greeted him in leather pants, topless.
