This is September 30th another day in my adventure in babysitting. Yesterday Kate was very restless but today she is very calm and sleepy. I don't mind the restless days but the calm ones are nice. She has become very cuddly if that's a word. A month or so ago it didn't seem like she wanted to be held much but that's changed as you can see from the picture. I hope that means she feels more comfortable with me. I think I mentioned once before that we all need touch, human touch as Bruce Springsteen would say. We all need someone to hold onto. If we don't have someone we tend to grasp for anything we can. I hope my human touch helps her to know that she can always find the touch she needs from those close by, especially me.
~ Love you Kate. Poppi
