Happy Birthday, Kate!

Happy Birthday, Kate!  Today she turns 3.  We had a fun morning opening presents, going to the Discovery Museum and eating Kate's favorite Chipotle for lunch.  I told her we'd cut the cake after nap time, but here's a preview pic.  Nothing fancy, but she wanted a rainbow cake.  Hopefully, we'll be able to have a low key evening and get her all packed up to go to Grandma's tomorrow!  I know she's excited to swim in the pool.   

I'd make a list of Kate's accomplishments to brag about how advanced she is for her age, but the list would be too long for this space.  Haha.  She really is a smart little girl who is very sweet most of the time.  I won't lie, we've had MANY 'terrible two' moments, but the good always outweighs the bad.  She's a sweet little girl who loves Jesus and her family.  She sings better than half the pop stars today and knows just as many songs as they do.  She talks like a big kid and has a rapidly expanding vocabulary ("not to mention a phenomenal grasp of grammar and a superlative command of syntax." Anyone??)  We're very proud of her and can't imagine how different the past three years would have been without her.  She is a blessing and it is an honor to be her parents. 

Hope you're all staying cool today!!

Next week's post:  Kate turns 10.  Stay tuned, it will happen that fast! :-(
