Happy Birthday to my first born.
Katie Lynn is 11 years old today.
Where does the time go?
It seems just like yesterday when the doctor announced...
"It's a girl!" (Her gender was a delivery surprise...)
Katie was born at 5:31pm. After many (36) hours of labor.
She was determined not to come out. After the forceps and vaccuum didn't do the job...she changed her mind and came out.
I was a very exhausted momma. The happiest, most tired momma in the world. I couldn't believe that God had blessed us with such a beautiful baby.
When I first layed my eyes upon her, I was struck by her dark eyes and black hair. I thought that she looked just like her daddy.
Kathryn Lynn Diekemper.
She weighed 8lbs 9oz (and would be the smallest of my 3 babies).
I have been the momma of Katie for 11 wonderful years.
Katie is sweet, sensitive, caring, thoughtful, intelligent and quietly strong.
Our lives have been blessed with our daughters...
But it was Katie who made us parents.
Happy Birthday, Katie. We are so glad that you are here!
