Little C is doing well and growing like a weed! She hardly cries and tolerates her big sisters well, which is good because they cannot stop touching her even when she is eating or sleeping. Photographic evidence of one:

We did have one extra pediatrician visit to have her belly button (chemically) cauterized when it was still bleeding 10 days after the cord fell off Sad smile The combination of a hernia above her belly button and a very deep belly button created a situation where it could not heal up on its own. Totally painless procedure and not a big deal except for driving during the one snowstorm this winter.

I made a few things for little C before she was born, including three pairs of sewn pants, three pairs of knit pants, and some sweaters. The sewn pants are almost too small already (big baby + cloth diapers) but we are squeezing her into them anyway:

One of the sweaters is an almost frontless cardigan seen here:

(You can also see her stick up hair, funny onesie, and terrible baby acne.)

I have been trying to knit for M as well. In fact, I have made almost 4 tops for her in the past few months, but the only one totally complete is this vest (the others need buttons, sleeves fixed and/or just aren’t done yet). M seems to appreciate the hand knits, more so than big C who left the hat I made her at school and then said she couldn’t even remember what it looked like. Anyway, the vest:

Hard to make out in the monochromatic outfit I know.

Well, that’s what I’ve got. Life is inching its way back to normal here, although we are eating a lot more frozen food than usual and I am not sure when I will ever exercise again. It seems like little C has been with us longer than 3.5 weeks, so I have to keep reminding myself that things take time. But we all love her so much, and she is such a mellow little baby that I bear her no ill will Winking smile

In closing…baby feet!
