April 18th 
Today was my actual due date 
Yep, that's right...I was born 6 weeks early
first time i've ever been early to anything in my life
all went downhill after my birth
kevin's working on changing that habit 
we'll see how that goes

I LOVE this picture of me and my mom 
Chubby cheeks? CHECK
hard to imagine i weighed only 4 pounds at birth
evidently i put the pounds on fast

my dad tells this story that when i was born, he could hold my whole body in the palm of his hand
it's become a bit of a legend
he shared it in his awesome daddy speech at our wedding
makes my heart happy thinking about that moment

spending so much time with my mom and dad this weekend made me miss them. 
love you M&D

love Katie 

...and so excited to share a sweet story with you next time....
