Making Memories

Happy Birthday Kate! 

I can remember every minute of 1/9/08 like it was yesterday.  I will never forget waking up at 3 am with horrible contractions (less than 3 minutes apart).  I took a shower, fixed my hair, and put makeup on, again while I have contractions.  (I know that I was crazy)  I waited until 5 am to wake Danny up because I just couldn’t take it anymore.  We headed to the hospital and quickly found out you were ready to enter the world.  A few short hours later I was holding our beautiful little girl.  So many emotions fill my mind as I am typing this post.  For the past TEN years we have watched you learn how to walk, learn how to talk, ride a bike, learn how to play several sports, accept Jesus to live in your heart, and have grown in so many more areas that would take me forever to list here.  You have become a very beautiful, smart, compassionate, sometimes strong-willed little girl.  It makes me sad to think that over the next ten years of your life you will enter middle school, then high school, and then college!! You will learn how to drive, probably have your first boyfriend, possibly your first breakup, become an independent woman, and at some point move out of our home.   As tears stream down my face I hope that you know that your dad and I love you so much!  We thank God that he blessed us with such a wonderful daughter 10 years ago today.   Happy Birthday Katherine Grace!
