Hesemann Family Christmas

 Mandy, Daniel, Kyle, Hatty, and Brady

Bill, Noah, Sarah, and Elizabeth

Just a picture of my pretty girl.

The whole Hesemann clan. 

Our happy family of four.

Merry Christmas!


Ella enjoyed her first play in the snow today. She and Daddy stomped around for quite a while, and she stayed warm and toasty thanks to her great snowsuit. Thanks, Aunt Katie. 

Even with the snow, she wanted to swing. This girl loves to swing. 

Daddy's giant snowmen. Just for some perspective, remember that Nathan is 6'1''. These got a cheer from Ella. 

The aftermath: when you have a sweet mullet, hat hair is awesome.

Introducing Audrey

Audrey is a wonderful baby. She is healthy and calm and is growing well. At 14 days old, she had done more than regain her birth weight and was up to 6 lbs, 15 oz and 21 inches.

She is very calm and sweet. Mommy's only wish is for her to figure out the difference between daytime and nighttime. That will come, though. For now, we are just enjoying this sweet angel.

So far, Ella is interested in her sister. We have seen very little jealousy. When Audrey makes some sort of noise, Ella is quick to tell us "Baby" and point to her. When she wakes up in the morning or from a nap, she always wants to know where "Baby" is. I'm sure these two will soon be friends.

We are so thankful for our little family. The transition from a family of three to a family of four has gone fairly smoothly. Audrey fits right in.

A Family of Four

Audrey Catherine Hesemann
December 9, 2010 3:27 pm
6 pounds 5 ounces
19 3/4 inches

In case it doesn't show in the pictures, she's absolutely perfect. So far, she is calm and content. Ella is intermittently intrigued by her, which is probably the best we could ask for. She hasn't shown any jealousy yet. We'll have to see about that. I need to get a video of Ella, though. Her pronunciation of Audrey is precious.

We are so thankful for our two beautiful, healthy girls. Nathan and I both are just so full of joy and gratitude for our blessings. We truly could not ask for more.
