|Smile Kate--You're FOUR!|
Our darling little Kate recently turned four! Though her arrival was probably on the most inconvenient time and day ever, it worked out perfectly, like it always does when we move forward with a bit of faith. She showed up exactly when she intended to and has been doing so ever since.
It really wasn't any surprise either that Katherine fit right in with her two older sisters. Though they're as different as the flowers in the garden, they all add beauty, laughter, fierce independence, intelligence and innumerable other intrinsic qualities to our family.
|Kate has a steady hand at Jenga.|
Our now not-so-little gal now loves playing games (and she's quite good at most of them), spends most days dressed up, can get her knees dirty but always wants her nails painted, gives the meanest scowl when she doesn't get her way, loves hair bows and is quite the artist with a fantastic imagination.
Oh, and she can talk like a scalawag pirate with the best of them.
As a toddler, she wasn't very fond of creepy, crawly bugs but after Claire showed her how fun they can be, she's taken right to them and hasn't looked back.
She loves feeling the wind in her hair...
She's a fantastic big sister...
|That mean wasp didn't know it was her birthday!|
I should have just gotten a toy instead of Nova and she gravely told me no...she loves them both. That is definitely true of Kate--always room for everyone.
|Make a wish!|
We are beyond blessed that Kate is part of our family and are still firmly convinced that she and her siblings will change the world. For now, she had a wonderful birthday and we're looking forward to watching her grow between many more celebrations.
Happy Birthday, Kate!!!
