[she’s four.]

** I’m posting this here, instead of on my personal blog, because pics just are bigger and better here.  These are not for RHP promotion. **

A couple of weeks ago, we were in Oroville, WA.  There, our Zio (“uncle” in Italian) has his own vineyard.  So while the family were playing volleyball – I stole Katia away for her “four-year-old” pics. A cotten red dress, her Italian family’s vineyards … and the little girl who fills me with such joy.

I adore Katia.  I think she is the smartest, funniest, most beautiful girl in the world.  I sometimes wonder what it would be like to be her … is that strange?  I think she is that amazing …

Without me getting into a bunch of sappiness … here are the pics I took …


This is a face I know too well.  The smug, ” … but I AM smiling” pic … ooh how I want to scrunch up those cheeks, swoop her in my arms and hold her forever.

I get this one a lot too … I call it the “TAKE THE PIC, MOMMY!!” face.  On a side note – those spaces between her teeth are a God-send.  All of my kids had them … and they all have really strong, healthy teeth.  Super thankful for that …

Paying hommage to her Italian roots … she’s half Italian (my hubby’s a “pure-bred” LOL) … and half mutt.  That’s me.  A mutt.  A bit of everything … Canadian, New Zealand, English, Scottish, German and Russian-Jew.

Happy birthday, beautiful girl.  xo
