Nathaniel has big blue eyes, an open expression, and long, curved eyelashes. He makes cute cooing sounds, and his cries make Katherine look concerned and say, “Baby nooooo.” He also has big hands and feet, and is within ten pounds or so of his sister. She is a sturdy girl, but I hope she realizes soon that it would be a good idea to be on Nathaniel’s good side as they grow up together. Otherwise she will lose a lot of fights! When Katherine takes her nap Nathaniel and I head upstairs with my lunch and I can frequently get him to take a nap, too, by putting him on a pillow on the dresser in front of the window, bathed in sunshine.
