My Little May Day Girl, Catie

My Caterina always amazes me...she has little to no fear and of course, I know as she gets older as a teen and up, that will worry me more. As she approaches her 6th birthday (and I, my 36th birthday, as we were both born on May 1st - unplanned!), I am somewhat trying to capture the best of what my heart sees in her.

She's my little princess and I love her, but I've always been fascinated as she gets older to see the difference between Mom and daughter, especially since we share the same birthday. We have so many things in common, but there are some distinct differences. Catie knows or meets few strangers. She is incredibly confident and other kids are drawn to her confidence. I, on the other hand, am usually quite shy... She seems to always do what she likes or wants in social situations at school and couldn't care less if anyone else wants to do it - what happens is that kids gradually start doing what she is doing. Not all of them, of course, but it just amazes me to watch. It's a little spark in her that I admire - that air of confidence.

I'm sharing some pics of her personality, taken recently at Disney. The first shots were taken at the Beirgarten restaurant in Germany where Catie was pratically the ONLY dancer on the floor for abour 15 minutes. Gradually, other kids come onto the floor and joined into a Christmastime story. :)

The second pic is of Catie opening up the World of Disney store in downtown Disney. A castmember selected her to open the store while she was getting a Hannah Montana makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. You'll see one of my older sisters in one of the pics.

The last pic of Catie as Hannah is just for fun, lol...
