Two years ago on August 29th, 2014 at 10:12 a.m Felicity Shay Adams came in to the world at St. Anthony's Hospital in Crown Point. She was the first child for my daughter Mallory and her husband Scott, and the first grandchild for all three sets of her grandparents. She has been surrounded by love and attention from the very beginning including from her doting Auntie 'Tel' (Shelby) who actually got to witness her coming into the world.
From the very beginning she has had a strong personality and there seems to be no sign of that changing haha!
At 10 weeks she was already showing signs of her sweet self...
10 weeks old
First Birthday First Birthday It has been so awesome to see her develop into a little person...these images from her 1st birthday seem like just yesterday!
And then exactly 5 months ago she seemed to grow up even more when she became a big sister to her little brother Dawson Avery.
Despite my trepidation of what would happen when she had to share her parent's loving and devoted attention, she has been quite taken with her little brother and is always very concerned about him. We all believe they will grow up to be the very best of friends.
Another close bond is the one she has with my youngest daughter who is only 5 years older than she. She always wants to know where "Na-na-na" (Savanah) is :)
I believe they will always have a special bond as well---not to mention plenty of photo ops haha!!
What a blessing Felicity Shay Adams has been to us all... including her Uncle Mikey, and her surrogate uncles, Uncle Louie and Uncle Kurt who she is very close to. She definitely has the 'strong male figures' category on lock down!
And speaking of male figures, watch out sports world because, I am quite sure, if her daddy/coach Scott has anything to say about it, she will be a champion on the basketball court! He has had her in training since she could hold a miniature basketball and she is even joining a basketball league next month!
Of course she is a champion off the court too! Full of personality and spirit, and we wouldn't have her any other way.
And even though not all her loved ones live close by I'd be amiss if I didn't mention her Aunt Natalie in Alaska, her Uncle Wyatt and great Aunt Jacquetta in Arizona, her great Granny and PaPa in Virginia, and her surrogate Uncle Phil in Wisconsin. They may not be right in her backyard but they all love her very much just the same!
HAPPY SECOND BIRTHDAY FELICITY SHAY ADAMS! YOUR NAN LOVES YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK!!
She is showing Nan the purple drawing, her favorite color! Sweetest little face! Of course I spent most of the session chasing after her! Peek a boo Nan! And she's off to explore the next phase of her little life as a big 2 year old!
