Great-Grandma Baker

I have the world’s best Grandma. Not only is she the warm, affectionate, best-Christmas-present type, she’s also the intelligent, understanding, and open-minded kind of woman that I aspire to be. I am blessed to have her in my life and I’m so glad she will be a part of Baby Baer’s.
