This is the very first picture we took of her, she was just an hour old:
Here she is a few hours later in something pink:
Sunday was Kathryn's 2nd birthday. (Check out those eye lashes and red lips! And she finally has some hair too). The only traditional birthday thing we did was open presents and sing "Happy Birthday". Poor girl didn't even get a cake or candles to blow out, no balloons or crate paper or giant posters. There's still time for that, right? I made a key lime pie, but that was mostly for me (so selfish!) She didn't even want to try the pie and opted for ice cream instead. Maybe I'll make her some cupcakes this week...maybe. Anyway, she got some really fun presents and all she wanted to do was play with them-- so she was happy and I saved myself all the trouble of decorating and baking. Her Grandma and Grandpa Wiseman sent her a baby doll, baby stroller, and bassinet. The stroller was by far the biggest hit -- even Sarah and Joseph can hardly keep their hands off it. Some of her other presents are still en route in the mail.
In the background you see her stroller and a new beanbag type chair...aka her "throne".
Kathryn wasn't all giggly or super smiley, but rather just quietly enjoyed her new stuff. Here she is admiring her new doll who is sitting in the stroller.

So, that was the big day. Nothing too extravagant...but just right for Kathryn.
