and those words are so hard to even say as we wake up today on her 3rd birthday!😭
My sweet Adelaide…prayed for diligently, wanted and cherished, a beautiful rainbow after so much loss and so many tears. I still feel like you are my tiny bundle, carefully snuggled on my chest as we keep up with brother and sisters. I’ve held every moment extra close and memorized everything I can about who you are from the day you were born.
As we packed up the crib as a family, all the memories come flooding back….of rocking babies, carefully laying them down, climbing in the crib to comfort them to sleep, sleeping on the floor beside the crib so I don’t miss a thing.
And here we are, my last baby, turning 3…..which seems so big….further and further away from babyhood. She now comes walking down the stairs on her own in the morning, smiling and wiping her hair from her face, wearing my tshirt that touches the ground, and quickly finding my lap for morning kisses. And while I love everything she is becoming and all the ways she is growing….she’ll always be my baby. The one who sealed my heart with hope and love and a beautiful promise after pain.
Adelaide….my forever baby…you complete our family with the sweetest blessings and joy, and we celebrate everything about you!
