Four years. That seems so long! I’ve been at this mom gig for four years now, thanks to my sweet Adeline.
The kid who is teaching me the ropes, who gets to bear the brunt of my parenting missteps.
On this day, your fourth birthday, you are amazing. Smart, funny, sweet. In love with your baby sister Hazel, finding your way with your sister Lucy. Fiercely independent. Friendly and social. Confident and adventurous.
You still call tongues tums, but the rest of your Adeline-isms are in your past. Almost every day you make a new connection, figure something else out. It is incredible to watch you grow and learn.
Four years ago today was one of the best days of my life and things just keep on getting better. I love you so much. Happy birthday!
