Happy birthday, Caitlin!

On Saturday, February 7, 2015, my daughter Caitlin turned nine years old.

Two days old.

She was born on a cold morning in Takoma Park, Maryland, at Washington Adventist Hospital. She has always been an easy-going, high energy girl, and she tends to light up whatever room she enters. She is sort of a celebrity in the extended family, because she was the first Pugh girl born in over thirty years. There is a running joke within the family the Pugh men “don’t throw girls.” Generally the Pugh line is very male-heavy, so there may be something to that.

I broke with tradition.

Being in the third grade, she has had some exposure to the less savory aspects of growing up. I suspect she’ll have some rough patches, but I know she’ll manage.
