Kate is getting BIG. I realized this morning how much she has grown when Sam wanted to hold her and she was too big for him to handle. It is a miracle how human life develops. So slowly that we don't even notice it. The arms and legs begin to lengthen. The face and head begin to change from the infant stage. It won't be long before Kate will go up a diaper size. All of this according to God's plan. What is God's plan for Kate? We have ideas of what we'd like for her, but what does God want? I am a believer that each of us have a special role in God's plan that no one else can do. It is up to us to help Kate find her place in God's universe. I think she's going to play an important role. I can't wait to see what it is. Kate is sooo big.
