Five! Annie is old enough to hold up her entire hand when people ask her her age. Actually, she's old enough that she no longer holds up her hand at all anymore (which kind of makes me want to cry inside a little).
Annie had been telling us for months about what she wanted for her birthday-- a Hello Kitty suitcase! For years Annie has been packing things away in whatever container she could find. How novel to be able to pack something that is actually intended for it! She got exactly what she deserved; a suitcase, pillow, shirt, and sleeping bag to boot! We love our spunky kitty girl. Happiest of birthdays, Annie Kate.
