“I love taking my birthday pictures! It makes me feels so special.”
I had no idea. I started officially taking pictures of my girls for their birthdays at least 10 years ago. Taking them off for their own photo session. I always thought I was doing this for me. And that THEY were doing this for me too. I had no idea this was how Kate felt. (Or her sisters for that matter!) I’m so glad we have this tradition!
Miss Kate has always been a thinker. This girl thinks about things in ways I never considered. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been shocked about her insights about herself and other people. I am NOT a very emotional person (oh sure, I’ve turned into a crier since I’ve had kids but who hasn’t?!?) so when Kate shares these insights I am always impressed with her level of maturity and it makes me want to slow down and think some of these deep thoughts too.
Don’t get me wrong, she’s definitely a normal teenager. On one hand she is a deep thinker and on the other hand she has no problem holing up in her crazy messy room that stresses me out every time I walk by! This girl pulls all her own paperwork and keeps us apprised of her work schedule but still needs a hug and a kiss before she leaves the house or goes to bed. I love her so much for all of her contradictions!
Happy Birthday Kid!
One more picture of Kate’s special request. She loves these pups so much!
