Monday Update

I haven't been too good about taking pictures, but luckily our family friends the Hatfields visited on Saturday, and Jim is a photographer...so we got lots of good ones. We are doing pretty well here. The sleep is difficult and I have been busy with work, so we're kind of in the mode of figuring out how everything is going to work and learning to manage two children. Lauren doesn't sleep very much, which does make things more challenging. She seems to be doing very well but does not like to have any alone time. She will sit in her high chair for about as long as it takes to empty the dishwasher or throw a meal together for Aidan, so we're thankful for that. She is really sweet and fun! We are enjoying her so much. She gives a lot of smiles, makes kissy noises and shakes her head back and forth at us while smiling. It is hard to believe she has only been with us for two weeks; she really does seem to be adjusting well. And she is not scared of the cat anymore; she actually seeks her out and grabs her whenever possible.

She's such a cutie and looks like a real happy baby. How old is she?

Thanks, guys! Janalee, sometimes she reminds me of your Maya when she makes certain expressions. Kathryn, she is 8 months old.
