Adelaide, today you turn four.
I watched you on the monitor as you fell asleep last night and you were smiling from ear to ear while talking to yourself “I’m going to be older tomorrow! It’s my birthday!” and then giggling hysterically.
How did we get so lucky?
You are truly our joy.
You are hilarious. You are compassionate and sensitive, smart and creative. You can be easily bribed by a pack of fruit snacks and can spend hours coloring (and you do an amazing job of staying in the lines).
You spend the majority of your free time doing imaginative play. You’re a mommy to your dolls and won’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You can entertain yourself with Shopkins for what seems like an eternity. (I mean, what are those things??)
You are a girly girl. You refuse to wear anything but dresses. We go to the fabric store and you pick out fabric for me to make you dresses. The twirlier the better.
Your current favorite foods are peanut butter toast, meatballs and kielbasa.
You are a social butterfly. You make friends easily and always make sure everyone is included. Which reminds me: you can talk for hours. I’ve never heard someone talk as much as you. Once when Daddy asked you to be quiet for a minute in the car you responded, “But Daddy, this is what Mommy and I do!”
We are so lucky to be your parents. You will do great things and we’re honored to get to lift you up along the way.
All our love xoxo
