Catherine Louise Westholm
BORN AT: 12:13 a.m. Sept. 11, 2012, in Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, weighing 8 pounds, 10-1/2 ounces.
PARENTS: Dan and Dani Westholm of Duluth.
SIBLINGS: Benjamin, 7, and Alaina, 5.
GRANDPARENTS: Bill and Kathy Westholm and Steven and Vicki Veit, all of Duluth.
GREAT GRANDPARENTS: Rod and Evelyn Leach of Kelliher, Walter Veit of Grand Rapids and the late Madeline Veit and Louise Westholm Juten.
WE CHOSE THIS NAME BECAUSE: Mama wanted a name that was three syllables and started with a “C” and Louise is after my Great-grandma Louise. Mama tried out many names on me the morning I was born, and Catherine Louise is the one that just seemed to fit who I am.
SOMETHING SPECIAL: My first name combined with my siblings first names and my dogs name spell out ABCD (Alaina, Benjamin, Cate, Daisy). Even though mama fell in love with calling me “Baby Cate,” my daddy started to call me “Sonja” or “Sonja-Cate. “He even personalized my Easter basket to say “Sonja.” I’m a very lively baby girl with bright red hair and a lot of personality. I also respond to such nicknames as, “Squeaks and Squawks” and “Grunts and Punts.”
