My Katie.....
















My "surprise" baby.........she has always been such a fighter. Such a "warrior Wilke" as I have called her in the past. She is still quiet, but definitely goes after something if she wants it bad enough. She will fight and her claws will definitely come out. She has a lot of spunk and determination----she will fight hard to the end! :) She has come soooo far in her short life. All four kids receive Speech Therapy for one hour/wk. Katie's speech has really flourished in the past few months. She still has a "squeaky" voice-we sometimes callher Minnie Mouse! LOL :) But still, that is a far cry from when she came home from the NICU, she had absolutely NO VOICE! Katie continues to cuddle up to the men in our family-you can always find her plopped on Uncle Vinny's lap or Poppy's lap. She certainly knows how to work the men! :) LOL. My Katie can be very ornery, but also very sweet. She and Emma are very close-and often hug and kiss each other during the day. Katie is also close with Matty, however, when those two fight, they FIGHT! Katie is growing really well-we continue to thicken her liquids as much as possible.........and we thankfully have had a few weeks of no real sickness with her. I can't believe she is 31 months old already!

I've enjoyed reading your little individual kid posts....special to document a bit of each alone now and then. Amazing how siblings can be so different!

she is such a cutie!! I used to have such a hard time telling her and Emma apart, but they are really getting their own "look" and personality now!

First, you look awesome! Keep up the great work you are doing.
Second, the field trip looks like it was fun.
Third, love the posts on the girls. It is amazing how much they change in such a short amount of time.
