One year ago today....

Katherine Marie was born! It's so hard to imagine that she is already one. It has gone so much faster than I remember it with Michael. I have been trying to soak up every moment with her.

She has developed quite the little personality. I look at her sometimes and wonder where her curiosity comes from. At times, she just sits there and takes everything in and other times, she can't stop laughing. Her laughter is so contagious.

I have loved watching her grow from a newborn baby to an infant to a toddler. When she was a newborn, I used to sit and hold her while she was sleeping. She was so warm, soft and agreeable. Katie is such an easygoing baby and I hope that continues into toddlerhood.

I remember when we found out that we were having a girl. I was nervous and excited all at the same time. I was worried that I couldn't possibly love another child as much as I loved Michael. As soon as Katie was born, I realized that was a ridiculous thought. She has captured my heart, especially when she looks in my eyes and gives me her adorable toothy grin.

Happy Birthday Katie! Mommy and Daddy love you so much....and so does Michael!

I can't believe she's one already!! I remember this time last year when you were getting ready to go to the hospital. Time has flown by.

Happy Birthday Katie!
