Kate is 5!!!!!

Our sweet girl turns 5 today!!  Hard to believe that it has been 5 years since our world was rocked by a tiny little baby girl.  What a joy it has been to see her grow and change over the past 5 years.  God knew exactly what He was doing when He gave Kate to us.  She perfectly completes our family by adding her sweetness, spunkiness, love and a little bit of craziness.  
 Kate seems so grown up these days.  She is getting so big.  She weighs right at 40 pounds and is 43 inches tall.  I look at pictures of her these days and am amazed at how grown up she looks!  She is so beautiful with her wavy blonde hair and golden eyes!  She has the sweetest little voice that is always full of excitement.  She just overflows with joy each and everyday!

Kate beats to her own drum.  I love that about her.  She is unique in all that she does!  Her shoes are always on the wrong feet.  It has become her trademark.  Kate's face is also always covered with dirt and grime.  It is like dirt just jumps on her.
 Her absolute favorite thing to do is to play!  She spends hours playing with toys each day.  Some of her favorites are her Sofia castle, Polly Pockets, Lego Friends and princesses.  She remains a girly girl related to all things princess!  She is extremely loyal to her best friends - Addy, Kaylee and Paige.  She loves those girls and would do anything for them.  I love that about her.  Over the past year she has gotten pretty picky about what she will eat.  She will try most anything but has very few things she actually likes including chicken, fruit and bacon.
Kate has become so funny lately.  She will just bust out with the craziest things!  She keeps us laughing all day.  She has an amazing sense of adventure and is always up for whatever is put in front of her!

Kate has always been a bit challenging but lately she is settling into herself.  She is so much fun!  I think 5 may be my favorite age with her so far!

We love our sweet girl and are so proud of the wonderful little girl she is becoming!!  Happy Birthday, Kate!!
