Happy Birthday, Angel.

If you're waiting around for something incredibly life changing or much anticipated to happen, 2 years is a very long time.
If you're cradling precious moments with a growing child, I've learned 2 years might as well fly by as 2 days.
2 years ago this little girl made me a mommy, and it's the best gift God has ever given to me.

To count how many I've kissed those rosey cheeks and rocked her sleepy little body would be impossible.
I am so thankful He chose me to give this little girl to.
At 2 years old, today, Adeline Jean answers to more than just her name.
Addie Jean, Addie, Squiggy, Squig, Boo Boo Chicky, and Baby will all catch her attention if directed towards her.
She's incredibly smart and pretty advanced for her age. Adeline can identify the letter and sound of almost every letter in the alphabet. She knows 10 shapes, and knows all of her colors. She's got a sharp memory and an amazing sense of direction [both of which must not come from me].
Adeline prays every day and every night, and out of everything we talk to Him about, her favorite prayer request and topic is cheese, which she prays about daily.
It goes without mentioning this is her favorite food with bananas as a close second, and chicken as a third.
The imagination on this kid is magical. She loves to play dress up, particularly with hats and things she can put on her head. I love watching her play and imagine and grow more and more each day.

From the moment we met her and every day in between, we continue to thank God for February 5, 2009 at 5:35 pm.

Happy Birthday Adeline Jean, Mommy and Daddy love you more than you'll ever know.
