Holland



Holland weighed 6 pounds 6.5 ounces at her last checkup. She stores all her fat in her chipmunk cheeks and big round belly, but still has skinny legs and a tiny bottom. She's a really spunky gal with a lot of energy. We have many nicknames for her, including squeakerbox and LJ (little John) because she is always making squeaky noises, and has eyes exactly like her daddy. Holland's bright eyes always appears really animated. She, like her sis, likes to cuddle with mom and dad and is really sweet. She tends to fuss a bit more, and it takes more trial and error to figure out what she wants. Both girls are pretty good-natured, but I must admit that I am NOT supermom and there are nights when I'm so tired and cranky that Holly and I both just sit and cry!

THANK YOU! some of us have been waiting patiently (and you know me - patient i am not) for an update. THEY ARE SO SWEET! i can't believe how great they look! i love that miss eden is so chill and holly is so sassy - the best of both worlds. billie, though i am not a mom myself, i have never known any mom who thinks she is doing everything perfectly, but that doesn't mean you're not a supermom. i already know that you are. i can't wait to see you all (and watch out, cuz i am now healthy and there will be no stopping me), i'll be home on monday. love you all so much!

Hi Billie - I'm so happy to see some new pics. I've been checking everyday!! I know finding a free moment to yourself is probably few and far between. They are just so precious. I can't wait to see them in person. I miss you! Janie

I never thought it was possible to love someone elses children so much, but boy do I love yours. It made my day to see their beautiful little faces. Much love to you all, Jess

It takes a SUPERMOM to realize that sometimes you have to cry!

Like I've said before...I am proud of you, and it won't be long until they are both sleeping through the night, and you can too! :) Kelsey used to fuss so much, that I thought I'd just die! She has turned out to be a very happy girl, though, and I'm sure Holland will be the same. :)
I can't wait to see them, and hold them!
Kiss that pretty girl for me.
Love,
Kendra

Being so tired you can't keep from crying is just part of the package of being a parent. I cried many nights and days, too. The expression "this too shall pass" is true. It all passes so quickly, and believe it or not, you will look back on these times with fondness. God bless you. Connie Wilhoite

I saw a link to your page on a friend's diary over at OpenDiary, so I followed it here. Seeing pictures of your lovely little girls and reading their stories made me choke up a little. :) They are so strong and brave, and so are you! A girl I know over on OD just had her baby boy at only 24 weeks, and I hope he does as well as your girls did! Congratulations, and good job!

P.S. It's alright to cry. My son is 3 months old and soemtimes I still just want to cry whenever I'm unhappy. You can see pics of him at my diary @ http://www.opendiary.com/entrylist.asp?authorcode=D375281

I just love the new pictures of the girls, they are adorable! The wright-erickson clan must be working hard, every one of you. It's amazing how much the girls have grown and I can't imagine all the work it's been for mom and dad. Have a wonderful holiday as a new family, and be thankful that they are mot playing with battery operated toys yet! I'm looking forward to giving them a big squeeze in the Spring! Love, donna
