She's beautiful!  And she has the same dubious "What do you think you're doing to me and why?" look that ours had with their early photos.  Smiley

You all look pretty good actually!  Now This is a True Saying:

When she's sleeping, *you* sleep, or at least lie or sit down!  This is important! We've been there 3 times and I give you my oath that you all need rest and not picking up/doing dishes/etc.

(Also just put any soiled baby clothing in a sink of cold water until you can do some laundry.. and rub it with a bit of plain soap if you think of it. It keeps it from staining permanently)

I dunno... I am the father of a girl who is now 23, and I never, but never, never had any trouble with her numerous suitors (all of whom had seemingly very decent motives). It was my wife who chased them away! All but one, who is still there. Smiley

More seriously, what a beautiful baby girl. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Y.! I want a granddaughter...  Shocked

Grandma did a good job picking out clothes for her!  She was smaller than we expected so we've been frantically collecting newborn sizes.  I think she could wear preemie clothes, really, but she'll grow out of all those soon enough.

Thanks!  We have quite a bit of Irish in us (and Scottish/English) so we liked the Gaelic names.  Caitlin is the Irish version of Catherine and we really liked naming her after St. Catherine of Alexandria.  As for Mary... it seemed appropriate to associate our firstborn girl with the Theotokos somehow.
