Kathryn Louise

February 7th

Sleeping happily

I met a new friend today — Katie Lou. Isn’t she beautiful? Her parents should write a book on relaxed parenting. I saw them today for the first time since her birth and they looked like they’d just walked off a beach. They were calm, cool and far too collected. Katie and I chilled for a bit until I tried taking her photo. This is when her inner diva emerged:

Give the girl some space!

“Please, Kelli. We just met I don’t want my pictures in Baby Weekly. I just want my privacy!”

Please! No paparazzi!

“I’m just not ready for press! Come on! I’m just back from Lacatation Therapy for Pete’s Sake. Have you no shame?”

Sweet baby toes

“But seriously, how cute are these socks? You should see the matching bib.”
