Hello Heidi!

Finally, here are some photos of our new addition! Thanks for your patience in waiting for these photos. We are adjusting well to life as a family of four and life with a newborn in the house again. Heidi is doing great and nursing like a champion. She is still a little jaundice but we are confident that this will pass as she nurses more and we hang out near the window in the sun. Harrison had a very rough day when Heidi came home from the hospital but is becoming more interested and less jealous of her each day. We are praying for his obedience and gentleness towards his baby sister. Thank you for your love, prayer and support!!

Our first family photo

Proud uncle and aunty - because of the H1N1 pandemic they were limiting visitors to 2 at a time and only grandparents and siblings of the baby were allowed. Since Mike's parents live in Texas we were able to substitute Blair and Danielle as visitors. They were so happy!

She looks so much like Harrison as a baby in this picture :)

It was -20C the morning we were discharged from the hospital (Dec 31) so Heidi is bundled up ready to brave the cold!


  1. Thanks for sharing the story. I was curious how everything came together. I have Jayden in my lap as we admire Heidi. We are all excited to get to hold her and give her a sweet snuggle! We love you guys. I'm glad to hear she is nursing well. Continue to take care of you, too. I know you have help, but....wish I was there to share in the memories.

  2. She is gorgeous!!! Congrats!
    We miss you guys SO much!

  3. Can't wait to meet her!!! Keep warm!!! Hugs from Peru & kisses from Ecuador!!! xxxx
