five years ago today, we welcomed Adam Henry Smith into our family! Kenny and I like to tell the boys the story of the day the two older boys came to the hospital to meet Adam for the first time. Sawyer was just 21 months old, Rowan was several weeks shy of turning 3. Rowan couldn’t wait to hold him, but Sawyer wasn’t too sure of him.
He was especially more unsure of him after an attempt at giving him his own balloon failed (he was cranky that Adam didn’t notice him giving him his special balloon). I love the mind of a toddler…
Adam, you amaze us more and more with each new year. You sing your days away with whatever song is in your head, you love learning along with your older brothers, and you love playing soccer, roller skating (LIMBO!) and swimming in the deep end of the pool with the big kids. You take this mama’s breath away with worry some times, but you know your boundaries even if you challenge them from time to time!
We love you like crazy, A-H!
