Happy 1st Birthday Adeline!

It is hard to believe that at this exact time last year I was sitting in a hospital room waiting to meet my Adeline. We didn't even know that she was going to be an Adeline and now here we are celebrating her first birthday. I will never forget hearing them say, "It's a GIRL!!" What a precious girl she is too. She has been a perfect fit into this family since the moment she arrived. She truly brings us so much joy. She is growing into such a sweet and goofy little girl. She is definitely a ham and keeps us laughing. She makes silly faces and noises, I dread the passing of this phase because it is so fun. Adeline is a loving child passing out hugs and kisses to everyone around her, especially to her big sister!! She loves Mary Selwyn and mimics everything MSN does. Adeline thinks she is just as big as her big sister.

Adeline can say Mama, Dada, Uh Oh and does her baby signs. She is the queen of the fake laugh and it is hilarious. I let Adeline have a lot more freedom then I ever let Mary Selwyn have. Funny how you are different with a second child. She is definitely more independent and entertains herself very well. She is changing everyday at a fast pace. Even though she is growing up so fast, walking, climbing and talking a little, she still feels like my baby. Maybe because I refuse to think of her as a toddler, maybe because she is still a mommy baby that likes for mom to hold her as much as possible....either way I'm trying to savor every inch of baby that might still be in her. First birthdays are so bittersweet to me!

We adore this baby and cannot imagine life without our little Liney Lou. The Lord knew what he was doing when he placed her in our family. I am so thankful for this day last year when we welcomed her to the world and for the wonderful year of her life. She is truly a blessing. Happy Birthday sweet Adeline. We love you!!!


Happy Birthday!!

One year later...a silly girl!!!


Mary Selwyn and Goon made Adeline mini cupcakes for her first birthday. She had one for breakfast...yummy!
