I think it's time for a Katheryn post.
When I was pregnant and we first got Nick's diagnosis I was very concerned about how this would impact Katheryn. I was worried about taking away from her, I was worried about things not being fair. I was worried about her losing out and losing her parents to the needs of a younger sibling.
I worried so much for Katheryn.
Katheryn is an itty-bitty thing. She is the older sister by 19 months, but is the same weight as Nickolas - she got checked out as 25lbs 8 oz today - time for celebration - she is officially BACK on the percentile charts! She is full of energy and is a very, very, very picky eater. I think this is part personality and part terrible twos - we are smack dab in the middle of that lovely stage at 2 1/2 years.
Her favorite colour is blue. She loves butterflies and balloons (mylar). She is finally talking in sentences, and I only have to guess what she is saying 10% of the time. She can count to 12, knows up to 5 on her fingers and can identify all the letters in the alphabet. Her favorite letter is 'W'.
She has Sammie, our Bernese Mountain Dog, wrapped around her finger and really likes telling him "oush" and pointing when she wants him out of the room. One of her jobs is to feed Sammie his food at night, as well as help mommy do the laundry.
Katheryn does not wake up well. From a nap, in the morning.. If you wake her up, you pay for it! Except for Nick. If you put Nick in the bed with her in the morning, she turns over, looks at him and smiles. Nick! Even when he's pulling her hair. (One of his favorite things to do).
In the morning she comes in and helps me "help Nick pee". She knows where all his catheter supplies are, and what we need. She only runs off with everything about half the time. She LOVES being chased!
I am sure that I am missing so much of what makes up my little girl.
I think I need to stop my post, Katheryn is climbing into my lap and saying "mommy tee-tell me" (tickle me).
