Holland is now 8! What! I started Birdalamode.com before I was even pregnant with her and now she is making big girl decisions and growing up into a beautiful person inside and out.
I had such a special experience with Holland on her baptism day. We woke up to a hot air balloon randomly dropping in our backyard. (a gift from the heavens)
I got her all ready in her beautiful dress, when we were heading up to the church we pulled over and took these pretty pictures of her.
Her baptism was full of loved ones both family and friends. The program was beautiful. Both grandpas spoke to her and her cousin Ava sang a beautiful song
Dallin baptized Holland and I was able to spend some special one on one time immediatly after she was baptized getting her reready. She was all the dunked. She had such an elegant calmness and confidence and was so sure that this was what she wanted to do. For the first time I felt her spirit, her person not a as a little child but almost like a young adult, a peer, she seemed wise and mature.
Holland is a leader and a special girl and I feel like a big reason Heavenly Father sent her to me is to help me to be a better person. I admire so much about Holland her unwaivering faith and her ability to always speak her truth she isn’t afraid of others opinions or being unpopular. She just does what is right. I love you so much Holland and am so thankful to be your mother.
