Happy Sixth Birthday to My Little Girl

March 7, 2011

This past weekend, Katy celebrated her sixth birthday. One of the things that sneaks up on you when you have a little one that can’t stand on her own is that you don’t get to see just how tall she is getting very often. Consequently, I guess, it’s just shocking to find that your little girl is now SIX.

Katy has done really well since her surgery and has made some significant strides in the strength in her legs – but I’m going to keep you hanging on that one for a day at least. Video is coming – I swear!

However, today is all about a birthday celebration. Katy could care less about presents on her birthday. New playdoh set, Katy! Eh. New books, Katy! Away! New toys, Katy! Katy? All she wants to do is blow out the candles. Again and Again. And again. 10 times in all. Check out the video below.
