Happy 8th Birthday, Katie Rose!!!

First of all, I can't believe how fast time has flown and Katie is already 8 years old! How can it be possible that my baby girl is already so old?  It truly seems like just yesterday that we held her in our arms for the first time.  Realizing how fast these 8 years has flown by makes me cherish even more the years we have her.  Before we know it, another 8 years will go by.  I've been spending more time cherishing each and every moment and just love the sweet, kind girl that she's growing up to be!  
As Katie has gotten older, her intellect level and maturity level is also blossoming.  We have more intellectual conversations now; she is such a bookworm and loves to read and learn! She has also begun reading her Bible this year and grows in her love for Jesus.  It's so nice that she can read and is able to participate in church service now!  Katie's not afraid to ask theological questions and loves to play hymns on the piano.  Lately, she's been working on making "good decisions" when it comes to things such a spending her money etc.
Katie's sweet character is such a blessing to our family!  She's always been my helper with her siblings, shows kindness to her friends and is considerate of their feelings.  We love her laughter, spunk and ability to have a good time!  I truly enjoy hanging out with her and doing things such as baking, shopping or projects together.
This year is the BIG year as she gets to have her ears pierced. She's been waiting for 2 years for this day!
Happy Birthday,Katie Rose!  Your family loves you very much!!
