Kate is 6!!!!

Our sweet girl turns 6 today!!  I have enjoyed looking back at the pictures from when she was born and reminiscing.  It is hard to believe that tiny, sick baby is now this awesome 6 year old.  She has come so far!

Everyday with Kate is an adventure!  She is so much fun and full of life.  She is super creative.  It amazes us daily what she comes up with.  Dance and theater are her passions right now.  She is always singing and dancing around the house.  We love getting to watch her perform and are excited she gets to explore her passions.  She is so different from the rest of us in the family but it she completes our family.

Kate is fiercely loyal.  I love this quality about her.  She will stand by her friends and family no matter what.  She is also so kind.  She is constantly thinking of others and how she can make their life better.  I pray these qualities continue to grow in her.  

She continues to be super healthy and grow!  She weighs around 45 pounds and is 44 inches tall.  She loves to wear fun, stylish clothes.  Her sense of style is eclectic and she knows what she wants to wear each day.  She is in a really picky stage right now with eating.  There is not much she likes and she lets us know!

Kate loves to play.  Imaginative play with little characters are still her favorite things to play with.  She is really into Shopkins and dolls right now.  She also loves to play family with her friends.  It is so much fun to watch her play!  Her transition to kindergarten has been hard at times but she is settling in nicely.  She loves going to school each day and is learning so much.  She is getting good at sounding out words and is going to be reading really soon.

Like I said Kate is awesome!!  We feel so blessed to have been chosen to be her parents  It is a big job and we know God gave her to us for that reason.  We pray that we live up to this amazing calling of shepherding her heart.  It is so much fun to watch her grow!!

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!  We love you so much!!!!
