Maack and sIENNA

Here is a picture of Maack on the left and Sienna on the right. I think they look alike but, I can also see a lot of Danny in Sienna. She has Danny’s almond shaped eyes and his face shape too. So we will just have to see. She is such a sweet girl already we are so glad to have her in our family.

so sick


We have all been sick and just as I was getting the hang of taking care of two kids with only five hours of sleep night my schedule has been turned up side down. At first I thought that being sick was terrible but it is so much worse having a sick baby! Sienna is sleeping in this baby swing in my room so she is elevated.  When Maack was two months old he got sick and had to sleep in a car seat in my room for four months! Thank goodness that Maack didn’t get sick this time.  Danny spent his days off this week keeping everyone quiet so I could Nap. Poor/lucky Danny gets to sleep in the office on a blow up mattress.  My visiting teachers have been helping me Take Maack a few hours each day because he is so bored, poor kid. Sienna through up on me twice today and it was really gross to see milk shoot out of her like that. So now you all know what I have been doing any why there aren’t any new posts. I promise to pick it back up some day but for now brushing my teeth is a luxury!

baby girl

     Sienna Gladys Henricksen


Here she is! Our new baby girl she is wonderful weighing 8.5 lbs. and 21 inches long. She is so sweet and well behaved. We are all having a great time with her. My labor was so fast it didn’t even seem real. Very different from the last time with Maack. I was induced and she arrived five hours later. We are all so in love with her. My mom has been helping me so much and my sister Abbey came just 30 minutes before she arrived, She was such a great help and It was so nice to share this experience with them.  I am just so happy to not be pregnant any more and to have another member of our family here. 

 Drugs are wonderfullllll.
