I love being your mom. I’ve been watching you these past few weeks and you’ve just grown leaps and bounds… even in your feet (they’re holding you up so much better since surgery)!
I teared up watching you walk the other day. The way you swagger like no other, the bow in your legs,and sway in your back offering me a comfort others may take for granted. Regardless of things so many doctors said, you’re walking and running. Your gait distinctly Adelaide Eileen. There’s no mistaking all that makes you uniquely you… and it is that which brings me to tears and laughter. All at the same time. This summer has been hard, but I know that whatever you face, we will face together- and it is your strength that will bring us through.
As we enter another chapter- you becoming a big sister- I’m excited to see how much you flourish!
I love you and your swagger,
