6 weeks old

Holland is 6 weeks old today! It's amazing how fast they grow and change. At 2 weeks she was holding her head up. At 3 weeks she could roll herself over from her tummy to her back. At 4 weeks she could straighten her legs out on Kirk's chest to push her bottom into the air. And just yesterday she stood herself straight up with her back pushing against Kirk's hands. It doesn't seem possible, but it's amazing! We are so very blessed!

Holland's Baptism

Holland was baptized July 27th, 2008 when she was 5 weeks and 3 days old. It was a beautiful service. Her sponsors are my sister, Katherine, and our cousin Catherine and her husband Danny. We are so grateful to have them as Holland's sponsors. My Mom hosted a luncheon at the church where everyone in the congregation and visitors for the baptism were invited to eat with us. We had a huge turnout and it was a wonderful day!

1 month old

Holland had her 1 month checkup today. She finally gained some weight. She now weighs 8 lbs 7 oz and is still 21 inches long. She is in the 25th percentile, so she is still a small baby. Other than breaking out with some baby acne, Holland is doing great!

3 weeks!

Little Holland Adelaide is 3 weeks old today. Time flies by so fast right now. She is sleeping at night now and only wakes up to feed. Kirk and I are so very thankful to start getting sleep now. I can't believe she is already turning over on her side now. They grow so fast!

Holland's first photo shoot

Dixie (Photography by Dixie) came out yesterday and took some awesome pictures of Holland. You can see a couple of the pictures on Dixie's website: under July 9th entry. She takes amazing pictures! Dixie also did my maternity photos and you can see one of them under her blog under June 13th entry.
