Happy 3rd Birthday Katie Mae!

Dear Katie,

Today you are 3 years old! I can't beleive it! It seems like yesterday you were born!
All your siblings adored you the moment you came into our lives.
Casey couldn't get enough of you and wanted to hold/snuggle you all the time. It was hard to make her give you back!
Sam turned into your other mother. Even telling me things she thought I was doing wrong or when she thought you needed to be fed. She still does and you two have such a special bond.
Tommy loved FINALLY being a big brother.
And your dad wasn't sure what to do with a baby girl! You quickly won his heart over and still have it in the palm of your hand!
Anywhere he is, you like to be!

We were all so surprised to see your dark hair and chubby face! We think you were storing food for the winter in there!

At 9 months old we got your pictures done with a special dress your Auntie made for you. It was gorgeous! I hope someday to pass it on to your children!
Birthdays are always special in our house! We loved seeing you turn 1!
Especially with the special made Backyardigans crown your friend Annie made for you! We still have it!
By your second birhday you got what was going on and was THRILLED to see the cake coming your way!
Today marks another year.

You keep amazing me every day with all your new found talents. Whether it is riding a bike, using the potty or just being sassy.

It still makes me sad every time you achieve a new milestone. Although I am thrilled to see it, I know you are my last child and try to treasure every moment.

Thank you for making my life complete. You make being a mom a joy. I look forward to being your mom forever!

Happy Birthday Katie Mae!
