30 week ultrasound pictures

these are from 6.26.08 and i was 30 weeks pregnant with you. this first one is looking straight at your face from the front-don't the ones like this always look funny? i love seeing you from all these different angles. this 3-D one is one of my favorites because your foot is up in front of your face again! you are so funny-how do you even do that?
this one looks like the same thing, but now your hand is in front of your face-when they took this one it almost looked like you were holding and rubbing the tip of your nose! i loved it.

oh you're so beautiful!!! i hope you know we think so-we adore you sweet girl-you could never be more cherished-by us or by our sweet Jesus who is letting us borrow you for a while. you are such a prized possession and i hope that fills your heart to overflowing, giving you all you'll ever need.

sleep peacefully tonight my love (or kick me all night-whichever you choose is fine with me) =)

My sister is married to Michelle Torres' brother - that is my link in the chain to your blog...and I live one town over from you. :) As I've read through them I am amazed and so thankful you have been writing these. Such precious memories of your journey. I too made a book from a blog we did on a special journey in our lives at blurb.com and it just recently arrived. Priceless and well worth the effort for the years of precious enjoyment ahead.

I've written your sweet daughter's birthday on my calendar and I will be praying for you!

You and Donnie are both so amazing and I treasure your writing. I think about you all and pray for you daily. Sometimes I find myself thinking that this isn't fair, why would this happen to such wonderful people, to anybody for that matter? But the truth is, God has a plan for us all and only gives us what we can handle. Lots of love and prayers.

Your beautiful words so perfectly tell us the power and peace of your love for your precious little girl. I am so happy to see her dancing inside you... even high kicking! Thank you for your amazing gift to share Catherine with us out here who love her too!

I was so blessed by your blog and seeing what you are doing to reach out to your sweet girl, Elizabeth Flowers (patch of flowers) sent me a link to you blog.
We lost our first baby at 28 weeks. It was completely unexpected. Yours was actually the second link I have received this week so I blogged more specifically about our experience the other day if you want to check it out.
I read a couple of posts, and the one about the baby clothes made me cry. I have soo felt the same way. A great thing is, and I am sure you already know to some extent, is that God will be closer and more real in these moments than any others. I will keep you in my prayers and as just another reminder of thankfulness for the children He has given us since our loss. thank you for your openness.

I know we haven't talked in a while, but I just came across your blog, and these sweet letters are so very very beautiful. And you are so very very beautiful, girl.

Katie,
I had the pleasure of sitting next to your mom on a flight to phx. She was visiting Anna Kate and I, my family. I heard your story and was deeply moved by it. I wanted to tell you what an amazing thing you are doing for your precious daughter. She's beautiful just like her mom. You are a role model for those of us going through a difficult time. I admire your strength and please know the good Lord will take care of lil Miss Catherine and your family. You are a beautiful woman, carrying a beautiful little girl and what you are doing is such a beautiful thing. Much love to you and your family. I'm praying for you! Your miracle is coming...Erica
Please tell Peggy I enjoyed our 4hr flt. You are such an inspiration, stay strong!

Katie,

I have never met you, yet found your blog through a friend's blog and felt compelled to tell you how much I was touched by your letters to your daughter. I too am expecting my first child and I can only imagine how you and your husband are feeling on top of all the hormones. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
