The next day, at 4:30 in the afternoon I was holding my sweet baby Kara for the very first time. My mother was so excited when she found out we were having a little girl. Her desire was that I would have a child that was just like me. Thankfully, Kara was not the cranky colicky baby that I was. However, she is every bit as stubborn, hard headed, and independent as I was and still am (although I do try to pretend I'm not).
Kara's favorite things are: reading, reading, and more reading. Oh, and she likes to eat. I am seriously afraid that people think we starve our children because it seems like she is always asking for more to eat. She does love her sweets, but I think she is equally happy to eat green onions and tomatoes straight from the garden. She even loves her salads and fruits.
Kara isn't one to venture out and try new things. She is still shy about performing with her violin. She has absolutely loved learning how to play the piano this year as well. We are homeschooling her right now, and we will be homeschooling her next year as well. We are just taking it one year at a time to determine what would be best for her.
Kara is a great help around the house, and she enjoys her baby brother. Although she does say she isn't ready to start changing diapers yet :)
Happy Birthday Kara, I hope you enjoy your 7th birthday!
