Catherine has been with us for 5 and a half weeks! It is hard to believe it was that long ago already, yet also feels like she's been with us a lot longer. She's a very peaceful baby and will sleep for a couple long stretches each day and night. She is just starting to really follow our movements and the sound of our voices, which makes her a lot more fun to talk to.
If you catch her attention she'll stare into your eyes and it seems like she's really telling you something important. She's been smiling more and more every day.
The big kids love her and spend a lot of time talking to her. They are sure to let me know if I'm too slow in helping her, but at the same time I've learned not to say that Catherine is going to have a snack because then suddenly everyone is starving.
