Dear Kate,

10!!!   Double Digits Baby!  Wowzers that went by in a flash! You are so special to me for soooo many reasons. You are my oldest and that means you were my first. What an amazing experience it was to bring you into this world and to be able to watch you grow these past ten years. Giving birth to you was one of the most amazing moments of my life and I will never forget it. You were so, so, so tiny: 5lbs 6oz. My brain can't comprehend how tiny that is anymore. I just know that someone told me your head was about the size of a grapefruit. Maybe it was and maybe it wasn't the size of a grapefruit.  It didn't matter. You were perfect to me and you still are. I love you and am looking forward to all the years ahead!
Love,
  Mom

I still remember her shower like it was yesterday. Right before you were finished opening presents I remember you announcing how you were so glad everyone didn't buy you pink outfits because you hated pink. And then you opened my gift and of course it was...a pink outfit. Funny how the memory remembers such silly things. :)

I just gave birth to my eldest 6 months ago and your letter to Kate really touched my heart. It made me appreciate and enjoy every moment with my son. God bless you and your family more.

Chanel bag represents a unique timeless style. So many women describe the design of Chanel handbag as you have not to think about what to do but have to ask how to show that the stirring way will never stop.
