Ava...Meiying
Nothing like a "Name Intervention" hosted by your girlfriends to get a name selected!
Homemade sangria, hummus & pita, oatmeal berry bars and lots of laughs...
They arrived with many books on names only to confuse me more...
their point was made and taken...
Fortunately, Derek and I had already decided...
(updated July 12, 2009...)BUT...YET AGAIN...
WE CHANGED THE NAME!
:( We're having an identity crisis...LOL
too many Anna/Anne variations already in our family...
so it's just not feeling right...
she deserves that individual name in our family...
Sorry Meiying; I hope this will be funny one day.
Though Ava has gained popularity in recent years,
in Meiying's birth year,
it wasn't that popular...
Ava means "like a bird"...
Next post will be on the significance of that!

Oh you must be going out of you mind crazy waiting to get your hands on her. I cannot wait to see the post announcing when you will be going. I'm so glad you were able to provide her with a cake and such for her special day. It makes all the difference to not only her but you too I'm sure. How exciting!
