Three years ago, God blessed us with a beautiful baby girl, our sweet and spunky Adeline!
Daddy made birthday caramel rolls, a favorite for all of us, yum! We asked her what she wanted to do and she said the zoo and see the butterflies. Because she loves strawberries, that was our theme for the day. Daddy made a strawberry cake with strawberry frosting and we both decorated it. I made her a strawberry "3" shirt too.
Adeline, when people meet you for the first time, you're so shy and won't talk, but once you're around them for a while, you'll talk their ear off with stories real and imaginary. You're fearless when it comes to climbing and adventures. You LOVE animals almost as much as your mom and your dad calls you Elmyra from Tiny Toons. When we're driving in the car you love to make up songs, usually ending with singing, "let it go! let it go! don't feel!" from Frozen. When talking about yesterday, you say "last morrow". If we're outside, you always have to have a stick, or as you say, "dick". You love small sticks, big sticks, long sticks, little sticks...it makes us laugh pretty hard! You will not keep your shoes and socks on no matter where we are. You are an awesome eater, usually eating more than Hakan and way less picky. You even eat things you're not supposed to, shoes, stickers (dickers), paper, socks, foam balls and bats, books, puzzles, cars, etc. You recently yelled from outside, "Mommy, we found a worm!!! Should we eat it?!" Condiments and dressings are a food group for you. You will randomly say you love us and give us a big hug and kiss. You take things and hide them, I think someday we're going to find your secret cave filled will everything we "lost", you're like a squirrel. "Adeline, where is your other sock?" "I don't know" looking around on the couch and floor, "OK, then you onlly have one sock to wear to go pick up Hakan" As we're getting ready to go, she sticks her hand down her shirt and pulls it out saying, "oh, here it is!!" I get asked if I curl your hair, nope, you're just blessed with perfect blonde curls. You are growing so fast and already wearing size 4 almost 5T clothes. We often find you sleeping in the hall, the floor in our room or on the stairs. You love books. Your face is almost always dirty, along with your clothes, proof of a curious little adventurer.
You bring so much excitement and joy to our lives, we love you so much! Happy birthday Adeline Grace!
