The first thing parents always say on their child's birthday is "I can't believe you're (insert age here)," but it's true, I can't believe my daughter, Kathryn, is 2 today!. Two years ago my wife and I were in the hospital giving birth (well, she was doing most of the work) to our third child. The youngest is a girl with two big brothers to protect her as she grows up.

She also has the advantage of having the best mom in the world, too. She may have drawn the short stick for dad, but I'll do my best!  Love you, little girl!
