But she went from this...



To this entirely too fast...

Today is Cate's 4th Birthday. F.O.U.R. I can not believe it. I feel like it was JUST yesterday that this sweet one joined our family.

Her Daddy says I prayed her here. He is probably right....about the time the triplets turned 18 months, I was ready for more. Eight years later, God gave us this little gift! Oh, we are all so thankful!!
She has this big guy -- her Uncle Lenny -- wrapped completely around her fingers! When she opened his gift yesterday and saw that it was EXACTLY what she had told him she wanted, she threw the gift down and threw her arms around "Uncle"!

This is the "gift" that Uncle Len gave -- a baby Ariel doll!

A family portrait with the birthday girl...it took more than one shot to get everyone's smiles...



See, this one has a higher percentage of smiles...but Pluto wasn't looking!

And my favorite shots of the day...our birthday girl with her cake...


And blowing out her candles!
Thank you God for the blessing that is this little girl, our Cate!
