My Birth Day

Hi everyone. I made my long awaited arrival early Saturday morning at 12:46 a.m. I weighted in at 7 lbs. 15.5 oz. and measured 19.5 inches long.

What a journey that was, but I'm happy to finally see my Mommy and Daddy's faces. I recognize their voices very well. It was an eventful first day for me, but I thought I'd give you some pictures to see the events that took place. I had several visitors which I absolutely enjoyed. Feedings are coming along well and I love to be curled up sleeping on Mommy's chest.

I'll post more once I get home on Monday, but until then I hope this will tide you over.

Hi Catherine! My mommy and daddy told me the great news about your arrival and I am tickled pink. We are all excited to meet you and my mom and dad are convinced we will be the best of friends. We are enjoying about 4 inches of snow in Ohio and I am getting ready to turn 12 weeks old tomorrow. Your mom and dad are very special to my parents and we are all very proud of you and your mom and dad. Please keep us posted on how you are sure to eat lots, only make messy diapers for your daddy and throw really good parties during the middle of the night (I thought it was lots of fun when I did it my first month!). My dad is already planning our first "B" gathering; he said we would make really good s'mores! We love you forever and always. Love & hugs, EKB

Catherine, what a lovely name! We're so happy you arrived! You already have a fan in Ethan. I showed him your pictures and told him your name and he said, "Catherine. I love her." However, I think he may also believe you are his cousin so perhaps we shouldn't take the words of a three-year-old overly seriously. I can't wait to meet you so let your parents know to give us a call when they are ready for visitors. (I'll bring food! You'll learn that I'm not much of a cook, but I live right next to Dean and Deluca.) I also need to pass along your future friend Emily's bassinet so you have somewhere to sleep. Or, more likely, a headquarters from which you will keep your parents sleepless and hopping in the wee hours. Congratulations, dear Catherine, and welcome to the world!

Hello Catherine, Mommy, and Daddy...this is your "Auntie" Karen! I can't wait to meet you so I can spoil you rotten! I'm going to be your "fun" aunt...we're going to do all sorts of wild and crazy things together! (Maybe I'll even let you watch Dirty Dancing, just like your mommy and I did when we were little, and once you have teeth, we'll eat pizza!) Plus I get first dibs on babysitting you whenever you drive Mommy and Daddy out of the house! When you get home tomorrow, you'll get to meet Clancy Bear, who is keeping your crib warm and cozy for you. "Uncle" Brian is getting excited to meet you too, but babies make him a little nervous, so try to take it easy on him at first. We love you already, little one! Love, "Auntie" Karen and "Uncle" Brian

Catherine, welcome to our world! What a cutie you are! I worked with your daddy at Hallmark. He's a great man, so I know you're in good hands. You are so adorable, and I love your room. You'll have lots of fun there. Tell your mommy and daddy congratulations! And I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! God bless you all! Brenda Ahring

Welcome to the World Catherine. You are a beautiful baby and I know your parents are sooo proud!!!
Now remember, Santa is coming so let's keep the crying down to a minimum and let mommy and daddy have some rest.

You will also need lumber to hold the cement mixture in its place, and prevent leaking..
