Katie Sunshine is 1!!

I have no words to express the utter of JOY of having a 1 year old. I cannot believe a whole year has passed from when we were delightfully surprised be the coming of our baby GIRL. Tears still feel my eyes as I think back to the screams that belted from my beloved friends mouths and filled all of BSA Hospital on February 15, 2008 when Patrick presented them with Ms. Katherine Elizabeth. What a perfect baby she has been from the moment she was born. I get chills thinking about her krinkle nosed smile, her passion for her dadadada, her brothers passion for "the lady", and really for absolutely anything "Kate." She is independent. She is playful. She is oh so happy. She is a total blessing from the Lord.

I could not resist having an all things heart dinner to celebrate our little Valentine's birthday. Everyone made their own heart shaped pizza, big kids decorated heart cookies, and for dessert we had strawberry heart cupcakes and chocolate covered strawberries. It was a very relaxed party with family and a couple of friends that we consider family including Kate's two best girlfriends Lucy (who is exactly one month older than Kate) and Madi-Claire (who is 5 months older than Kate). Fun fun.

Has your entry way always been red? I like it.

Girls are pretty great. I wouldn't complain if this one is a girl!
