Flashback Friday – La Bebita

Bebita – 12/28/2006 – 6 months
My littlest babe.  Now that she’s in kinder, she doesn’t like to be called “Baby Kate” anymore.  So I’ve switched to “Bebita.”  The same name disguised in another language. It’s all the same, though.  No matter how old, no many how many years pass, she’ll always be my Baby.

The Third Wheel

The Third Wheel, February 9, 2010
Those who know Kate well, know this face and this attitude.   The attitude with the angry eyes, the chin tucked firmly into chest, the arms akimbo.  Yes, that’s the one.  The one where mama throws her arms up in desperation and daddy sighs with frustration.  This is the Kate we [...]
