I was thinking lately about nature versus nurture in regards to Kate. To clarify, some theorists believe that a child is born with most of their traits built in and so in a way who they are is predetermined, that's nature.
On the other side there are those who believe that a child is like a blank slate and how they are raised makes all the difference. It's probably a little of both.
Her mother says that though she looks more like her father, she acts more like her mother. It's the opposite with her older brother. Kate is a pretty good little baby. As I have said before she is very calm. It will be fun to watch her grow and see how she develops. I'll do my part with the nurturing as do her parents. I just pray that she continues to have a warm loving home life so she can become all that God intended her to be. I can't wait to see how she turns out.
Check out God's gift to the world.
