Julian meets great-grandma Lois

Julian got to meet a lot of family members over the holidays (or, rather, a lot of family members got to meet Julian, since he is still feeling a little out of it).  A highlight for me was my nearly 93 year old grandmother (his great-grandmother) Lois meeting him.  She and my aunt Cindy drove eight hours in the snow from Minnesota to make it to Madison, stayed two nights and had to head back before Christmas.  Julian is partially named after Lois's husband and my paternal grandfather Albert, who passed away several years ago.  Grandma's choice quote upon meeting the baby was "you sure must have loved pa to have given the baby such a stodgy old German name."  Indeed.
