Franny has arrived!
On October 25, my 6th grandchild was born, my younger daughter’s first-born. Sweet. I flew down to San Francisco to join the new little family as soon as I could, and spent two sleepless, heavenly weeks with them, helping to care for little Franny. She is a beautiful baby, as all babies are.
The quilt in the background is a labor of love. Each relative or family friend sent a handmade African-animal-based (or whatever they felt like) square with a personal message of love for the new babe. Elephants, monkeys, and giraffes are popular nursery themes these days – but also Franny’s parents worked in Tanzania for three years, so it’s especially meaningful for them.
