Merry Christmas!



We received the best Christmas present ever yesterday morning with the birth of our sweet little girl.  

Anneli (said Ana-Leigh) K Hendrix arrived at 6:04am on December 24th after an incredibly swift & intense labor.  Annie surprised everyone by weighing in at a whopping TEN pounds & measures 22 1/4 inches long.

We're resting at the hospital until Friday when we get to go home & be a new family of four!

Can't wait to meet her. Is her middle name "K"? Merry Christmas indeed!

Andi said...

Her middle name is K

If you ask John he'll say, "K, no period."

It's in honor of both of our mothers- Kathy & Karen.

opps, that previous comment was from me too. couldn't you have done like a 'kathreny' as a middle name? but the 'k' works too. :) katy
