5 Months

It's hard to believe it's been 5 months since this pile of squishy-ness entered our lives:

And now she's just as adorable as can be:

She's quite the squirmer and flipping and flopping all over the place.  She loves playing with her brother's blocks and other toys, though he's not as big of a fan.  She's got a quiet, subtle laugh (unlike her brother) but a smile that just melts you.  She's definitely a "talker" and likes to babble with you, but also a quiet observer of the world, content to sit or lay down and explore her toes, toys or just watch her brother and the pets.  Though I don't think any baby is really easy, she's by far an easier baby than Matthew was. 

Though Catherine will never have the individual attention in quite the same way Matthew did, I'm sure she benefits from the experience gained the second time around and definitely benefits from the hugs and kisses of an older brother, even when he tries to steal the spotlight during pictures with kisses for mommy.

He also passes along some pretty great clothes that were just as cute on him as they are now on her:
