|Kat age 3 in China|
Who in the world is this lovely girl? Our Kat. Miss Kitty, as she is affectionately known as, with us today now SIX years!
I know, I know, it's hard to believe. On one hand, she wore 18 month baby clothes at age 3 when we got her, so it seemed like we have had her since birth almost. Yet, on the other hand, it seems like six years went flying by and there's no way it's been that long.
I truly can't imagine life without her. She is the most loving, sweet, spunky diva I know.
As you may notice in her pictures, she has GROWN. Matter of fact when I took the kids to my favorite park for pictures yesterday I was blown away by the pure beauty of the last picture posted. It's so HER.
Gorgeous. Lots and lots of hair. Angelina J*lie lips. Those almond eyes. She is just breath taking.
All I could think of in the full length shot, when did she get so TALL? She's 4 ft 2, catching up fast to Paisley's 4 ft 5 but still not taller than Phoebe (4 ft 3 as of last update)
She's all of 48 pounds, dripping wet. Skin--eeeyyy. Although she is very healthy, rarely gets anything but a cold. For a lovie who spent the first 6 months here sick all the time, this is much preferred.
She still eats the most Chinese- like, noodles, meats, seafood, no cheese, no dairy (Yes, MOM I know she should) doesn't care for bread. But she's got a sweet tooth, yep, she does. Girl likes her candy.
So many years, so many things changed, foster siblings, our baby passing, a new sister--- who brought 2 new brothers, big siblings growing up and moving out, another new big sis, and another sis to come.
Through it all Miss Kitty has remained loving, wonderful, caring and the reason we were willing to go forward and add "just one more"- Okay, permission to laugh for ALL right here.
Seriously, if she had been a "tough" child, not blended in so easily, I know we would not have been open when God called us to Chloe. And call He did. Unmistakable.
But our Kat, well, she was a delight from Day 1. The little girl of my dreams. Girly giggles, frills, dresses galore, earrings, bling. Shoes! Hair bows. Wooo, hooo, a girly girl:)
A blessing she is, and always has been. She will receive a small gift and a thank you card from us, thanking her for becoming our daughter:)
Love you Kitty Kat, always and forever. You are so precious. A gift from God that we treasure.
