Kate is THREE!!!

Pin It

Three years ago today, our second little angel came into our lives. This little one is our "live wire." She is a ball full of energy, has her own look and her own way. Quiet possibly the best way to describe our Kate is sincere: whether she is happy, sad, angry, excited, she can not hide her emotions and feels them to the max!

In the past year you have grown from a little toddler to a precious little girl and Mommy and Daddy couldn't be more proud!

I love the sound of your voice when you are playing pretend

I love those random hugs you give throughout the day

I love all of your silly faces

I love your pretty curls (especially as I learn to tame them)

I love when you stick your cheek out for me to kiss it (and how one kissed cheek is never enough)

I love to hear your sweet prayers at bed time

I love giving and receiving your "Ugga-Muggas" (nose kisses)

I love giving you piggy-back rides to bed

I love watching you play with your sisters

I love your passion for life!

In Kate's own words:

I am forever amazed that the Lord would allow me to be a mom to this little one! What a joy it is to have her in our lives. My prayer for you, sweet Kate is the same today as it always is:

What an awesome privilege God has given me to be your Mommy.

I pray that you forever grow in His Grace.

I pray that you will grow to Love Him more each day

I pray that you will grow to show His love to others

I pray that you will have all the joys your heart desires

I pray that I will always be able to guide you along the right path

I pray that you will always know how very much you are loved

I pray that no one ever quenches your zeal for life

I pray that your enthusiasm is always used for God's glory

I pray for His wisdom in raising you to be all that God designed you to be.

You are your Mommy's joy, precious Kate!
I love you with all of my heart. Happy Birthday to my sweet girl.
