Kathleen Rose



Kathleen Rose joined the world on 6th Feb 2010 weighing in at 7lb 11oz. She's a slight, dainty little baby and seems extremely small compared with her sister. I can't really say yet which of us she resembles but I did catch a glimpse of my paternal grandfather.

She has a calm demeanour and a gentle little cry, all very different from Maisie. We were prepared for Maisie to explode with anger at Kathleen's appearance but she has accepted the new baby's presence with surprising grace. In fact she seems slightly nervous of her, as if aware of her fragility.

I haven't made a secret of hoping for a boy but I am very happy indeed with Kathleen! She's a miniature gem.

Thanks Steph! Yes Maisie is a big old bruiser these days by comparison.

Oh My!!! I haven't been blogging for ages but suddenly had an urge to pop by and see how you're doing.

A huge CONGRATULATIONS to you and Michelle!!!
Now there's two beautiful girls. You both must be so proud. What lucky parents!

Perfect Virgo said...

Ms K - It's only when you have a new one that the old one seems so big!

Elena - I'm glad you visited and thanks very much for your kind thoughts. I still write from time to time, babies permitting!
