While the eyes of the world have been focused on St. Mary’s Hospital in London in great anticipation of the imminent birth of an eventual heir to the British throne, our family has also been involved in a baby watch in Toledo, Ohio. Well, our’s beat Kate and William’s little one.
On this past Tuesday, 16 July, at 2:59 PM ESDT, my granddaughter, Felicia Marie Thoele and her proud husband, Michael, gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Angelique Rene Thoele. To us this one is royalty. She is my sixth great-grand, and she is both great and grand. I’m looking forward to a trip north that my wife and I will be making shortly.
As for the other royal birth, I want to stick my neck out and predict that this one shall also be a girl and will be born next Monday or Tuesday. My top name pick is Wilhelmina. That’s all just conjecture, mind you, but it’s my opinion and everybody is entitled to one.
In the meantime, while you’re all waiting for either the royal baby or one of your own, be sure to grab a copy of The Best of Mother Goose and Other Nursery Rhymes recently published by St. Clair Publications. It will make an excellent gift for a little one!
