Adelaide came into the world at 11:26 a.m. on June 6, 2015. Nicknamed “Cece”, she would forever change our lives in her short lifetime.
She was the light and joy in everyone’s eyes and loved to make a stranger smile. She had a way of knowing when you were sad and when she showed her toothy grin, you couldn’t help but reciprocate.
Adelaide loved princesses and Disney. She always thought she was a mermaid and loved watching Rapunzel, and Sofia. She loved singing and dancing to any and all sorts of Disney music.
Her two favorite activities were coloring and dressing up her kitty. The poor cat would end up with a stack of drawn scribbles and hair clips all in her fur. They both loved it equally and it happened pretty frequently.
Adelaide always read her books to her baby doll. She was always so gentle when singing and rocking her baby. She would even put it in her stroller and take it with us for walks around the neighborhood.
She always said “hi” to every animal she passed and was the sweetest, kindest girl in our world. She loved trying out new playgrounds, taking long walks, and the ever-changing scenery during car rides.
On May 22, 2017, two weeks before her second birthday, she sang her favorite song, we snuggled, and she kept being her happy, sassy self. Later that night, she developed a fever. A couple of hours later when her fever came down, she snuggled with Daddy, painted a picture, then did her bedtime routine. The following day, May 23, her Mama went to get her up for the day and Adelaide had gained her angel wings.
Her Mama and Daddy miss her so much and her kitty still calls for her from time to time. She is survived by her two little brothers whom she never met, two fur siblings, four grandparents, two great-grandmothers, two aunts, four uncles, seven cousins, and several other extended family. She also loved all of our friends whom she considered her aunts and uncles.
