Planes, Trains and Automobiles

I know most of you get up everyday and cant wait to check out my blog, but you will have to manage without for the next week.  :)
The Holt 3 are heading to NY to see family in Rochester and Albany.  We leave in the AM tomorrow, i mean the very very AM (out the door at 4.20am)  anything for a deal, huh?  i am starting to wonder what i was thinking.  We are flying into Albany and taking the train on the weekend to Rochester.  Anyway, we will be back next Wednesday!
Please be praying for safe travels, esp. for Austin on the plane!
Many pictures to come..

My cool Aunt Chelle got me this shirt.  I am too chubby for it so I gave it to my Tiger.


I pretend not to like my car seat, but really its my favorite place to sleep.

First Play Date

Well, i guess i am officially a mom.  Yesterday i went on my first "play date"  My friend Kristin and her son Anthony went to visit our friend MB whose son Ryan is 3 weeks older than AA (got all that?)  They live on lake Erie with a great view and beautiful home.  It was a perfect day.  We spent the day inside though with screaming or napping kids, but still it was a lot of fun.  Here are a couple of pics of AA and A (anthony) and then the 3 boys at MB.

The boys- Ryan 8 weeks (screaming just up from a nap), A (7 months) and

Friday

My parents had a birthday bash for me on friday, but really it was an excuse for everyone to get together to meet/see Austin.  Andrew's parents were there, along with all of my side and Austin got to meet my Aunt Carol and cuz Vicki.  We spent two nights at my parents and once again Austin did great.  We were a little worried about Thursday night since my parents had to work on Friday, but Austin didnt make a peep.   I guess we'll be invited back.

Yesterday marked 4 weeks already.  Time really does go fast.  Its the
 little things that still make me smile.  I love to watch him wake up or fall asleep and see him roll his eyes, smile and make these really funny faces with
 his lips.  He is too cute for words.  He is so strong- holding his head up and using his leg muscles all the time.  

At the doctor the other day he was 12 lbs already!  Holy cow.  My mom and I attempted to measure him and he was about 24.5 inches.  In just 4 weeks he has grown almost 3lbs. and 2inches!  I hope things back down a bit or we are going to set some records.  He's just perfect though  :)

Its amazing what a difference a few seconds can make.

My side-from L toR... My mom, me, Andrew, my sister Michelle (w/Austin) and My dad.

Ark

I wish i had time to blog, I am too busy building my ark.

Dear God



I think Austin might be getting a little bit of a cold, but of course, i dont really know.  He sounds stuffy so we'll see.  Anyway, this is him praying that God would take his cold away!

Baby Bjorn

I have been trying out new slings and carriers and Austin seems to like both.  Today we hung out in the Baby Bjorn and he cashed out!  I was able to get so much done.  Nothing exciting, but still things that had to be done (sweeping, dishes, laundry, diapers, emptying the dishwasher)  not bad for 8am!  

Anyway,  Austin fell asleep and I had to take him off, but didnt want to wake him, so i just took the whole thing off and left him in it, it was an interesting site!


Oh, now he is up, gotta run...
