Cate Update #1

Susanne Catherine, "Cate", is doing great.  She is nursing well.  She does have some congestion and I hope it doesn't develop into a full blown cold.  We have kept her at home except for church and that is were she may have picked up a bug, but I doubt it as Callie held her most of the time.

Abby is still enthralled with her new baby sister.  She isn't calling her "baby cakes" any more, but "baby sister."  She corrected me when I called her Susanna Banana Danna. She told me that wasn't right.  This was her baby sister. 

Callie is trying her best to give time to Abby.  She does miss her special play time when it was just the two of them.  Callie is funny because she says that she "isn't doing anything because Mom is doing it all." That would be house cleaning, laundry, and cooking plus helping out when needed with the girls.  Yet she feels that she is always busy, nursing the baby, changing the baby, bathing the baby, and rocking the baby.  So not much time with Abby.  She will figure it out soon, especially when I go back home.
Abby is taking it all in stride.  She loves holding Cate. Andy and Callie even let Abby feed Cate a bottle for a minute or so.  They watched over that very carefully.  It went well.

Cate is 9 days old now.  She is starting to round out a bit.  Her cord stump was bloody this morning when I gave her a sponge bath.  I cleaned it up with a Q-tip.  It should come off in the next week or so.  The doctor will check it next week anyway at her first Well Baby check-up.

She is perfect and beautiful.
