I finally got a somewhat smile picture. Holland is just growing and getting big. She is lifting her head up while doing her "tummy time," even though she isn't the biggest fan of doing it. The biggest news is that she started sleeping all night starting Friday, Aug the 22nd. What a relief! She sleeps from about 11:30/midnight to about 6 am.

Kirk and I just got back from going out to my grandparents oil field to see the damage from the flood. I don't think I could have been prepared enough to see this. There used to be 8 oil tanks all together divided by a catwalk and now there are only 4. The 2nd picture is where the oil tanks ended up, on a stock tank dam. Everything was destroyed and the water was so high, at least 8 feet deep, that it completely covered all the equipment in the power (little building behind the tanks in picture).
We had Holland's 2 month checkup with her doctor yesterday. She has grown 1.25 inches! She is now at 22 1/4 inches long. She didn't gain as much as weight as she should have, though. She still hasn't gotten to double digits. She weighed 9 lbs and 14 oz. That keeps her in the 25th percentile, still. She got 3 shots and did great. She only screamed/cried for a minute and was done. As soon as the nurse gave her to me, she quit and was happy again. We were supposed to have her 2 month photos taken yesterday, but the photographer had to cancel due to a family emergency. We have rescheduled for next week. I can't wait!!!

Holland is 2 months old today! Time flies! Tomorrow she has her 2 month doctor appt and her 2 month photo shoot. I'm looking forward to seeing how much she weighs now and hopefully I'll have a photo to post from the shoot. Who would have thought she would have slept from midnight until 5:30am this morning, especially during the thunderstorms. Maybe she will begin sleeping better at night. Fingers crossed!

Holland is 8 weeks old today! I can't believe it! She is doing good. Granted, I would love more sleep at night. She is more alert now and will lay there and gaze at things. She loves to look at Kirk and I and just smile. Too bad I can't get a picture of her smiling. She is learning to hold toys and is doing great with her "tummy time." She can't push herself up yet, but she can use her legs and scoot across the floor.

Holland went to daycare/sitter yesterday for the first time. She did great. Only got fussy once when she had to have her diaper changed. Kirk drops her off and I pick her up. That makes it easier on me in the morning and less emotional for me. Holland is staying with a great lady that only takes care of one other little girl. It makes me feel great knowing that she will get all the attention and care she needs. We are very blessed in that Kirk will have Holland on Wed, Thurs, and Fri, so Holland only goes to daycare on Mon and Tues. :)
