Happy 7th Birthday, Cate

Our sweet girl is growing into such a delightful young lady.  She is 7 today, and while sometimes I can’t believe that our baby is seven, other times her birth day feels like a lifetime ago.  The last seven years have been full of more love and more laughter than any other time in our lives.  We continue to experience most of our parenting ‘firsts’ through the eyes of our  big girl, and we are thankful that she was given to us as a kind and forgiving little soul.

Cate is many things…she is a wonderful big sister, an excellent student and a good friend.  And while we couldn’t be more thrilled with these things, we are most proud of the qualities of gentleness, compassion and kindness that she possesses.  Cate is also a worrier and we often find ourselves encouraging her to make mistakes…life is easier when you realize that making mistakes is part of the dance, right?  She loves to read and has taken up the piano this school year and loves it (this girl has music in her every bone).  She is still totally into Taylor Swift, fashion, playing dress-up, babies and ‘school’, she loves to write and play outside.  We feel like she’s grown up so much this year and is mature way beyond her years, yet we appreciate and cherish the little girl that she is still.  We love our baby girl so much and are truly and totally blessed by her every day.

Though we had lots of warm and sunny days this November, when we finally had time to do Cate’s 7 year sesh, it was snowing. 🙂  So, we improvised and headed to the local library, where Cate felt right at home.  So, enough of me…here is our 7 year old and if you have a few spare minutes her full 7-Year-Slide-Show is below.  😀 Happy Birthday, Cate!
