Two months ago, our family friend Marlies, gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl...and they named her Ranen. Our Ranen was quite taken with the idea that someone else shared her name...and looked forward to meeting her. Yesterday Marlies came for coffee with baby Ranen...and Lisa came with Ranen and Micah.
And so...Ranen met baby Ranen. They smiled at each other...
...and big Ranen wondered whether she might take baby Ranen out to the swings. We suggested she wait for another year or so! They both agreed to that.
Joyful...a wonderful name to live up to!
