Eight years ago, three days past your due date, you made me a Mama. Since your arrival, there has been neither a quiet nor dull moment! Your joy and enthusiasm for life is contagious; your smile and energy exceptional. You are equal parts cautious and adventurous, girly and tomboyish, a planner and spontaneous. You are creative and have a flair for the dramatic, a natural entertainer who loves the spotlight.
You are a total extrovert with a magnetism that draws people and a special gift for making friends everywhere you go. You have a tender heart and genuinely love people. You remind me so much of my grandfather, BB, who is now in Heaven; one day, you two will have a grand time together, kindred spirits talking and laughing. Your sense of humor regularly makes others laugh – and your quick wit and sarcasm regularly gets you in trouble, if we don’t laugh first. I have countless notes on my phone titled “Kate funnies” – hilarious quips you’ve made over the years.
