Happy, Happy, HAPPY Birthday to our sweet Katy Grace!! With her birth, she made us parents and completed our little family. These past five years have just FLOWN by!! Every day is an adventure with Lil' Miss and I'm so glad to be on this journey with her.

Katy enriches our lives beyond measure and I truly cannot imagine life without her laughter, her imagination and her unending supply of questions. She pushes me to be better because she is always pushing the limits- in good ways and trying ways. She has such a capacity to love and be loved- I love watching the world through her eyes.

She makes us smile, she makes us laugh and yes, sometimes cry. Everyday there is some funny anecdote or saying that she says that makes us wonder, laugh and scratch our heads. Just the other day, she came up with this thing where she'll shaker her hips in a circle when you say "hot chili sauce." Hilarious! Seriously- I'm still laughing!

Daily, she is learning and processing and taking in this great big world. The world is her stage and she isn't shy about taking it by the horns! She has a zest for life that I pray she never looses. With every task that she sets her mind to, she sets out to accomplish and conquer. 

I am so proud of the way that she sets goals and does her best to reach them. Take for example, her recent determination to learn to ride her bike without training wheels- one week- that's all it took her, once she set her mind to it! Or, her desire to save up enough money to to buy her own American Girl Doll. One year later and umpteen many quarters later (she gets a quarter for each chore that she helps with around the house) and Lil' Miss proudly picked out first doll, today. Amazing!

Here is a list of some current Katy statistics:

Favorite Show/Toy- Currently, she's Frozen obsessed- like most girls her age. Of course, she still loves her My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic

Favorite Books- She still enjoys Berenstain Bears, but we're into American Girl books, too.

Favorite Color- She's still really into Red and Pink.

Favorite Food- Chocolate, chips and salsa, pepperoni, cheese and crackers. And, let's not forget onions. Lots and lots of onions.

Current Bedtime/Wake up- Katy goes to bed at eight PM and usually wakes up around 7:15-7:30 AM (of course, it's never a full-all-the-way-through night of sleep... for her, or us...)

Height/Weights- Height- 43.5" (70th Percentile). Weight- 48 lbs (88th Percentile).

Current Clothing/Shoe Size- Size 5t clothing, size 11 1/2 shoes. She still LOVES to dress up fancy and prefers to wear dresses over pants.

Currently on Her Nightstand- American Girls, Felicity and Wizard of Oz.

It has been a great year and I can't wait to see what this next year has in store for Katy!

Happy, Happy, Happy 5th  Birthday, Katy Grace!! Daddy and I love you beyond measure- a million times a million!!!!
