Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Girl

Three years ago today, Miss Kathryn Marie Murphy entered this wonderful world at 1:47 pm with a sweet cry and a tuft of dirty blonde hair. On this day, Katy made me a mom.  I can honestly say that this was the BEST day of my life, a day I waited so very long for, and a day I will never forget.   I can’t remember what we did last week, but I can give you a play by play of Katy’s delivery.  It was a day filled with many emotions, and was most certainly unforgettable.

Since day one Katy has been a strong and amazing human being.  She has has made every. single. day. wonderful.  She is a joy to be around, and has a smile that lights up any room she is in.  I can not imagine a more kind and caring little girl.  

To say that Katy has been through a lot (medically) is a major understatement.  She has been through more than any child  should ever have to endure, and unfortunately has a long road ahead of her.  I am amazed at how well she handles her many doctors appointments, procedures, and daily medicine.   On my worst day, I think of Kate and how she handles all of this with such grace and I am reminded that if she can do this, so can I.

Katy,

I love you to the moon and back.    I love watching you love life.  I love your sweet voice, and having” I love you more”  wars.  I love how much you are a Daddy’s girl.  I love how caring you are towards your “baby” Patrick.  I love that you love to sing, and color and play.  I love that you love to be a girly girl. I love you to the moon and back.  I am so thankful for you, and can’t imagine my world without you   I know that you are going to do great things in this world. 

Love,

Mommy

Katy 3
