Baby Schmooey Is Here!

We came to the hospital yesterday morning to see if my transverse baby had perchance gone head-down, but he was breech, so I ended up with a c-section. This is not an experience I would care to repeat, but I have an amazingly beautiful son out of the deal. Isaac Todd Merle Hollmann was born on August 31, 2007 at 10:11 am. He weighed 9 pounds and was 20.5 inches long. And he has red hair, so we're three for three. :-)

Here is his very first picture after being born:

Here he is showing off his red hair:

Here he is with proud big sister Emma:

And with just as proud big sister Abbie:

Watching "The Sound of Music" with Daddy:

Last but not least, I just couldn't resist this picture of him with Abbie and Grandma. The look on Abbie's face is just priceless:

I am going to try to get a picture of the "Klingon ridge" I see on his head. My mom says it looks like he has a peace symbol up there. Apparently it's the where the seams of the bones of his head come together, and the pediatrician had an actual name for it, but I prefer to think we might have some Klingon ancestry. Ha.


  1. Oh, how sweet. Congratulations!

  2. Adorable! He is so small & cute! You have a beautiful "lil red" family!

  3. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful--your whole family!!

    (I've already started praying that my Isaac marries a redhead so that I could at least have some redheaded grandbabies!!)

  4. Congrats on your new beautiful baby boy!!

    I have 3 daughters, one of which is a red-head! My little stinker little boy (my last) was side-ways and ended up my first c-section, so I feel your pain there!

    I wish you a speedy recovery and precious days ahead with your new son! Little boys are so different than girls, but having one been a very neat experience for me!

  5. fabulous pictures, honey, great job mama!!!
