Katie's First Birthday

It's hard to believe that Katie's first year has already flown by! Of course, we couldn't imagine life without her! Not much warms a mama's heart more than seeing the older kids fall in love with their new siblings. I think it's safe to say that everyone (even those who were a little less enthusiastic about the idea of adding to our family) has fallen madly in love with Katie! Even the darkest of adolescent moods improve with some of her soft snuggles, warm smiles, hearty giggles & sticky kisses!

Life's too short to miss out on a chance to celebrate, so even though Katie would have been none the wiser, we ate ice cream cake. And she was a fan, of course! Dessert is generally a rarity in the RV, so everyone was happy for a little sugar!

Here are a few highlights of Katie's first year:

2 and half months
Learning to climb the stairs at 10 months, just before leaving Utah
Loving the baths in the kitchen sink at 7 months
Six months old and eating kale chips and making a mess of it
Thinking about crawling already at 5 months
Dressed up for a photoshoot by her big sisters (3 months)
Held by her beautiful mom at 3 months
