Linus & Katherine

Katherine has developed an interesting habit, reminiscent of a popular comic book character.

We all know and love the "Peanuts" cartoons. And we all know and love the character Linus, with his trademark security blanket.

Linus was often drawn holding his blanket up to his cheek while sucking his thumb:

Katherine has not yet been introduced to the Peanuts comic strip, but she is already doing her best Linus impersonations.

We can tell Katherine is getting tired, because when she is getting ready to sleep she will rub her blanket up against her right cheek, while sucking her left thumb.

Even once asleep, Katherine will often rub her blanket up against her right cheek, and hold it there while she sleeps.

I thought his was a pretty recent occurance, but then I was looking through some photos of Katherine's first days at home from the hospital, and I realized she's been doing it the whole time!

Here are some photos, confirming that she is indeed a Linus groupie:

That is the cutest thing! Who knew people developed habits so early in life?!? You mean, Fred has been picking his nose since he was baby?
