hello everyone

i finally made it!
my name is
merrick kekoa farmer henderson
i was born tuesday night, december 3oth 2008.
i weighed 6 lbs 15 oz and i am 20 inches long.

my mommy cried when she met me.
i don't think that she thought that she could love a 'little' someone sooo much!

my daddy and mommy were so tired when i got here. they had been at the hospital for 26 hours already. my mommy had to be induced cause i was taking to long.

my sister jordan is really cool too.
she likes to hold me and just giggles the whole time!

well here i am! my mommy said that she will post more pictures later...
and that she is sorry that it took so long to get these up...
her internet wasn't working.

love you all, love merrick

Molly,
Congrats on your new son. He is so cute. It is time for the boys to come I guess. My daughter is expecting our first grandchild in March and he is a boy. We are so excited and can't wait till he gets here. Enjoy ever minute cause they pass so quickly. It seems like just yesterday when I was tending you and having my own kids. Tell your mom and dad Hello for me. I will try to keep up on the blog and watch your little one grow. Love Debra (Cottrell) Johnson

Congratulations, Molly! Having a baby is such an emotional rollercoaster. HOpe you can get some good sleep. The first two months can be brutal if you don't get the sleep you need.
