Happy Second Birthday Adaela Elizabeth!!!

This is a walk through memory lane. I can not believe you are two years old now little girl! Time has flown, and yet, in two short years my whole life and being have become something new, something better and more full.

The picture above is the moment we met. We have shared so many moments since then, happy ones, crazy ones, silly moments, challenging moments, and beautiful moments.

This messy little picture is from your first Birthday. I thought you were such a big girl then and now I look back and you seem so little still.

That picture reminds me to cherish every moment and not wish any of it away. Each stage is fun and exciting and I want to savor them all. Thank you Adaela for giving me the gift of living in the present moment with you.

This past year has been a lesson in staying in the moment, a lesson in trust and joy. There have been great things and hard things this year. Much letting go, some by choice and some by chance. But, through it all you and your Dad are there growing, changing, and filling my days with love and joy. Thank you Adaela for another wonderful year.

These pictures are from your second birthday this year. We had a few friends over for dinner and will celebrate with a big Tinkerbell party at the park on Sunday. And...Uncle Nolan is coming...YAY!!!! It will be so great to have him here to celebrate your birthday and his.

My how you are grown this year Adaela, in every way possible. You are a tall girl (yes, I do have tall people in my family :)). We just finished your 2 year check up and you are almost 3 feet tall and in the 98 percentile for height. You love to talk...and talk... and talk. You will repeat anything you hear. Look out world!
You are getting your last 4 teeth right now and then we will just wait for them to start falling out :)
You love to sing and play outside with Dad. You like to garden and water the plants, chase the cats around the lanai, and "play" with Mommy's make-up, hair spray, and shoes.

You love the friends you in Florida. You talk about them everyday, especially your favorite dog Cali girl :). You rejoice when ever you are with them. I love to watch you with new baby Addison, you are so sweet, and gentle, and kind.
You love to "go shopping" and visit our favorite outdoor Florida malls. You love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Elmo, and Tinkerbell. You can count to ten and sing your ABCs. You tell me lately how you want to "go to school," soon enough my love, soon enough.

Adaela, as much as I would love to freeze time and keep you small and close to me. It
is so amazing and exciting to watch you "unfold." I love to watch you learn something new. It warms my soul to see more and more of who you are, who God made you to be. We welcome you Adaela Elizabeth. We cherish you. We love you.
Happy Birthday my Sunshine!
Love you,
