Lila Grace

Mark's brother Dave and his wife Heather welcomed their daughter Lila Grace Franklin on Sunday. Heather had a smooth delivery and everyone is feeling good! We brought pizza to the hospital last night and had a mini pizza party in celebration. I honestly have never seen Dave and Heather so happy. Heather told me " I know I wasn't feeling very motherly during my pregnancy, but the second I saw her it just wasn't weird anymore, I feel like a mom, it is just not weird" Brought tears to my eyes... COngrats Dave and Heather

The next thing that brought tears to my eyes, was watching Mark hold her and love on her. He is not afraid to pick any baby up - 2 hours old or 8 years old. He is such a guys guy and masculine but I just see it all melt away whenever he holds a baby...I can see it on his face, he is going to make a great dad and I love him even more for it!

There have been quite a few babies born on the Bajorek/Franklin side. It is so exciting...How thankful I am to God that all of these babies have been healthy. How thankful I am that we have such a loving and open family. How thankful I am that my siblings let me be apart of their kids lives in such a big way. I am sure I can be overwhelming at times because I always want to be around. I feel so thankful that I married a man who places his family first, even when it is not easy. And how thankful I am that we hope to be able to start a family one day too!...Life is good!
