Happy Birthday Kate

Today, my mind has been flooded with memories... "What was I doing this time 3 years ago?"

You have already heard our harrowing story of her impending birth. And, as I said before, I will never forget Dr. Waller telling me that I had done everything right, and everything that I could, and now we would have a daughter free from so many issues that could have affected her if she had come so early.

I think about that so often as we have watch her grow. I wish I knew how many times Scott and I have looked at each other and said how blessed we are with her, and what a wonderful daughter she is. And, today she turns 3.

I so look forward to more time with her. I only wish it wouldn't go by so fast.

Happy Birthday, Kate Reed! We love you!

That is one of my favorite pictures of Scott. His nose in Kate's mouth! Yes, it is hard to believe she is 3 already. I found myself the other day thinking about the birthdays this year and when I said, Kyle will be 5, I just had to stop for a moment to catch my breath. Where have those years gone? I am sure your mama told you the same thing I have told my girls, enjoy EVERY single minute (including the bad moments) because before you know it they will be walking out the door to go to college.

I was just thinking today about visiting you in the hospital when you were pregnant with her, and that seems like last week. I can't believe she is 3 now. She is precious, just like her mama.

I love this picture - Kate "nursed" Scott's nose - he thought it was the funniest thing! This picture is in OB Triage at Baptist East. We sent this pic with thank you cards to many nurses at East!
