Ada Turns Two

| Leave a comment

My sweet baby girl turned two this week. Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday we were bringing her home for the first time. I have been looking through pictures of her and can’t believe how much she has grown & changed. I wanted to picked a few of my favorites to share (which was hard to do because I have so many favorites!).

Ada is full of personality – don’t let her pictures fool you. It’s all we can do to get her to smile for the camera and she always looks so melancholy. But in reality she is a firecracker. She can be all the way happy one moment and then the next, all the way mad. She certainly keeps us on our toes all the time. She is also the sweetest, silliest girls ever. She can be in her own little world and then she will hear a song that she likes and will drop everything to dance to it. And poor thing, has my dance moves. 😉 She loves to snuggle and will find any excuse for us to just hold her. She has already learned that if she snuggles with us she can pretty much get whatever she wants. Clever girl. She LOVES her stuffed bunnies – which she calls, Hop-Hops. She never goes anywhere without her Hop-Hop. They have so many wonderful adventures together. She also loves her sweets. Everyday she asks either for cake, popsicles, or ice cream.

She has grown and changed so much this past year; and I am so very proud of all her accomplishments. She talks nonstop and will break out in song often. Most of the time at the top of her lungs. She can count to 5, point out many letters from the alphabet, she knows all her shapes & colors, and can run circles around me all day long.

Ada brings so much joy and love to our lives. She certainly is our little sunshine and completes us so perfectly. We are all so excited to celebrate her with family & friends next weekend! Happy birthday Ada Marie, we love you more than you could ever know.
