I heart faces: babies week

I have tons and tons of pictures of babies, but none that tug on my heartstrings as much as this one does. In fact, just posting this picture gives me a huge knot in my throat.


You see, Grandpa B always wanted a little girl to call his own (as he just had one child, my husband) and grand baby number two was it! Of course I wanted to have a girl, but I was more excited to find out that Lola was a girl, because of this wonderful man. I think that this one photo shows all of the love that oozes out of his heart for her. I don't even know where to begin telling his story, so I won't. What I will tell you is that he got his baby girl and was able to hold her, kiss on her, and love on her for a little over a year before he lost his battle to cancer. We love you Grandpa B.
