How Beautiful…



How Beautiful…

What a great way to start our visit but to be greeted by a beautiful young lady! Kathryn. From the moment we entered her room and saw her she greeted us with a steady stare from those big brown eyes and sometimes a smile. But mostly a look of curiosity and a look of content just to be held. We were told that we would have two hours visit with her and that would be the norm for the duration of our visits. She is small for her age (a little over 6 months and 12 lbs. Not bad for a preemie) but is well proportioned, nourished, has big brown eyes, and a calm disposition. She is very expressive with looks of content, interest, and delight. She does seem to lack some muscle tone for this age like holding her head up unassisted. But I’m no expert. There is even a slight showing of dimples when she smiles. She is already a joy and we know she will be a blessed addition to our family. It seemed like we did a lot during our visit; she looked at us and cooed, played, napped, drank a bottle of formula (kifer actually, like a yogurt) in record time, about 8 oz. in <4min.>

Sounds like a lot like our first visit. Reading your blog is deja vu. Alia is a speed eater too. Sound like Kathryn is a wonderful, beautiful little girl. Enjoy your visits. She will thrive with your care - you will be amazed.

I left some 3-6 month clothes there on the dresser if you need back-up.
