Caitlyn's 2005 Flashback

Here is the final installment of the 2005 flashbacks....Caitlyn. She's the most serious of the kids, but still has a silly side. She loves to talk, and is extremely intelligent. 2005 found her enjoying being a big sister again. Many pictures I found had her with one of her siblings, hugging and smiling. Caitlyn has always been the "little mommy" of the bunch, eager to nurture and of course.... boss someone around! :) At times she gets a little overbearing, but the other kids are quick to put her in her place. Christmas 2004, Caitlyn was fortunate enough to have her own personal home visit from Santa. Santa was actually a relative of a friend from church, but she had no idea. To this day, she still remembers that visit. 2005 marked the beginning of her love of reading as well. Caitlyn began reading shortly before her birthday that year. She was only three! She has discovered, as I did, that books provide a relaxing escape from reality at times, a chance to exercise her imagination. She is a very imaginative and creative child, and we are very proud of the little girl that she has become!
