I’ve just returned from the jewelry store where I ordered the baby shoe for my precious new grandson, William Friedrich, born yesterday to Hans and Rachel in Germany. He is 6 pounds, 15 ounces, just under 21 inches long. He and Mommy are doing just fine. Hans told me he looks a little like Josiah – now 5 years old – and a little like Annika – now 3 ½ years old. I couldn’t be more pleased. I just wish they didn’t live so far away as I would love to hold him and see the others.
That brings the shoes on my Grandmother necklace to 5: Josiah, Annika, Aurelia, Marshall and Will.
Congratulations, Hans and Rachel!
