This is my sweet baby girl Adelaide. She is five today.
For the first year of her life she rarely smiled. She also rarely frowned (except in this picture). She was just a placid, content little baby taking everything in and thinking long and hard.
Sometime around a year and a half old a spunky personality came out of nowhere. She’s the lone Red in a family of Whites and Blues and Yellows.*
Ada and Mister are particularly close. They’ve agreed to live next door to each other forever. Last week I asked Ada what would happen if her husband wanted to live someplace else. She thought about that for a while. “I fink I’ll be da boss of my husband.” That doesn’t really surprise me.
Happy birthday little bird! I’ll try not to cry about you growing up so fast.
