Little One

Taken at the hospital, Katherine is one day old in this picture.

What a wonderful weekend we had! Katie’s Grandpa Tim traveled here by train from Connecticut to meet his new granddaughter. And her Uncle Nate & Aunt Shea drove up from Georgia, too. Everyone had lots of chances to cuddle with the little one, and everyone was treated to a little smile.

My computer wizards fixed my laptop while they were here – yes!!! And I decided to celebrate by changing my blog theme.

Nine-day-old Katie in her stroller.

Tim & I had a chance to take Katie out for some fresh air yesterday. She loved the bumpy parts of the stroller ride and kept her delighted grandparents enchanted with her ever-changing facial expressions, and also busy adjusting the shades whenever the sunlight threatened to get in her eyes.

Tim and the little one. ♥

    1. Thank you, Rosie. She is rather scrumptious and being there when she was born was the thrill of a lifetime!

        1. I sure did! I even helped a little – it was a peak experience for me and I am so thankful that Larisa asked me to be there with her and Dima and the midwives. 🙂

  1. Barbara, is it just the photos, or is Katie an “Old Soul”? Just look at her eyes….she looks so wise. She has been here before and knows every answer to every question there is in the whole world; if only she could share her knowledge with us all. Enjoy your beautiful new granddaughter.

    Oh, and I love the new look of your website too. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Joanne! It could well be that Katie is an old soul – if she is I am sure her great-grandpa (my father) has something to do with it. 🙂 Since my father died a year ago Larisa has felt his presence down here. Although Katie looks mostly like her father, we keep seeing her great-grandpa’s facial expressions and body language displayed in her tiny being.

    1. Thank you, Robin! I do know that Katie is an observer – she seems aware of all that is going on around her and inside of her, too. 🙂

    1. Welcome back, Kathy! It’s so nice to hear from you again – I missed you! I hope you’re settled into your new place and have your internet squared away again. Life is such an adventure, isn’t it? *hugs*

    1. Thank you, Kathy! Katie is definitely a little charmer – I will miss our morning cuddles and conversations when I have to go back to Connecticut.

Your thoughts are much appreciated...
