Above, on the front of page 16, you see that we are still in our Spa room located on our side yard of our Manti home, recovering from a wonderful water birth of our 5th son, Andrew Sterling Holler! We pose for a family photo together with, Bernd (his facial expression is corny), myself (so happy my smile could fly off my face) and young Austin (our ever obedient helper).
In several photos we are encouraging Andrew to nurse for the health and well being of the both of us. Look how attentive Austin is being. He is such an amazing and mature young boy! (A mothers dream child)
Then, there is a sweet picture of newborn Andrew, all content and snug as a bug in a rug, wrapped in his baby blanket and had been moved upstairs to my master bedroom inside our cozy home.
The last photo being of me, and my 4 young boys!
(A prouder mother than me, you can NOT find at that moment!!)
Joy, beyond compare!
The middle shot, is of Jordan with the green laderhosen pants (German leather shorts) that Oma and Ops had given Austin a few years earlier. They now fit Jordan, and he looked so handsome (adorable) in them.
The next pic is of Andrew sleeping contently. I would wrap him like a burrito. He loved to sleep in the day. So much so, that at night he was keeping me up. So I did the ole wives tale trick of turning him counter clock wise during the night, so many times as hours he was off.... AND IT WORKED!!! From then on, he slept his 4-6 hour stretch during the night like a good boy! (Simply Amazing!)
This album page also announces Andrews birth weight when he was born.
