Several readers have emailed to ask if I could provide an update on our beloved Katiedoodle and her baby on the way. Indeed, there’s good news to report: A happy, healthy addition to Kate and Jim’s life, their first child, Coraline — Cora, for short.
Kates reports that she baby are doing great. Cora was born two weeks and one day late –at 9:14 p.m. on Kate and Jim’s seventh wedding anniversary — making her an October baby instead of a September baby. Specs: 7 lbs, 14 oz…. 20.75 inches long… with a 33 cm. head … and a full head of dark brown hair. Kate and Jim are already in love, despite being very tired.
Best advice we received we received: Sleep when baby sleeps. Other highlights: Cora smiled on day three and continues to smile especially when mommy and daddy are being silly and making faces! She’s very alert when she’s awake and loves to mimic faces we make. She is unphased by power tools (lots of drilling and some hammering when we put in the new wall oven and she slept right through it). Big brother Leo is adjusting well and has already mastered sniffing out poop diapers and protecting the baby from any delivery person, mailman, squirrels or other wildlife that comes too close to the house.
🙂 back at you, Kate. Congratulations again to you and Jim and welcome, Cora, to your mom’s crazy-in-a-good way mid mod crafty world! 😉
P.S., I miss you soooo much, Kate, personally and yes… I’m drowning over here without you! xoxox Pam
