A-Z on Mondays: K is for Katie

K is for Katie.

I picked out the name Katherine when I was just a little girl. I always knew it would be the name of my first daughter.

Katie is like me in so many ways - and so different from me at the same time. I love her spirit and independence, although I know that means she will one day want to leave me and explore the world. She has curiosity. She has will and determination. She wants to do it all - and all by herself. I am so proud of her and I can't wait to see the woman she will become. I am totally crying right now.

From birth to today ... Katie ...




















I love you forever, kid.

My girl is named Katie, too (short for Katherine, too!) She'll be 22 years old in June, and still my baby girl.

Your Katie is adorable.
