Today at 6:02 am a new member was brought into the family. Annika Grace Birukow is her name and having a killer gripping hands is her game. This post goes out to my son and daughter in law, congrats and welcome to the world of parenting. :) Of course I had to hold the baby as you can see. Hold a new life in my arms felt really good, it gave me a real sense of how life can be fragile at first but as the years go on you find yourself feeling invincible. God bless you Annika and I love you.
