Oh that face!

Look at That Cute Face!

My first Mothers Day. First off, I gotta say "Love You Mom!" I have the most amazing mom! She's one of those people that just is a natural teacher. She has taught me so much; from reading "Go Dog Go" too us when we were little, too living her testimony everyday, showing that She loves the Lord. I love her so much! I could go on and on about my wonderful mother.

I also have some amazing grandmothers! Im so lucky to have these women in my life. They all mean so much to me.

Now, this was my first mothers day. And all I can say is I am SOOO blessed to be a Mother! I love this little girl! I know my child is suppose to be celebrating "me." But, I feel like its more of a celebration of having the great privilage of being a mother. Now that I am a mother, I can honestly say the love I experience everyday for my sweet daughter, helps me see the love God has for us. It's undescribable!

This song Martina McBride sings explains it a bit:

"In my Daughters eyes,

I am strong and wise and know no fear.

But the truth is plain to see, she was sent to rescue me.

I see who i wanna be, in my daughters eyes.

In my daughters eyes, everyone is equal.

Darkness turns to light, and the world is at peacce.

This miracle God gave to me, gives me strength when i am weak.

I find reason to believe, in my daughters eyes.

And when she wraps her hand around my finger

Oh it puts a smile in my heart

Everything becomes a little clearer

I realize what life is all about...."

Yes, I am her mother, and I take care of her, but She really helps me more than I help her. She helps me; have more patience, be more thankful for the littlest things, try to be the best I can be, come closer to Christ...and so much more. What a little example she is to me. I love Her.

Thank You Heavenly Father for sending me an Angel to have with me here on earth!

We took her to the park in St.George. She was so funny! Ahh she's so cute, I have to contain myself from kissing her constantly.

Mile Marker 1

Blessing Day! What a beautiful day! Most of our family was able to make it. Braidon has been nervous for this day too come ever since we found out I was pregnant. haha, serious! But he did such a good job! If you know Braidon, he doesn't talk infront of people, ever! So this was a big feat. But, he did amazing! Im so proud of him. It was a beautiful blessing. And thankfully KenLea was such a good little cookie the whole time. No crying. Yah! and not much puking, which she does quite often. Afterwards we had family come over for a light lunch. It was fantastic, my mom is always such a good host.
Besides that mile marker, KenLea is gonna be a quick learner I feel. She already rolled over, like two weeks ago. She's been able to hold herself up since day one. She's so strong, its crazy. She is talkin, well ya know, baby cooing and all that stuff. I swear she laughs at us. She thankfully is sleeping 5-6 hours straight throught the night, wakes up to eat and then falls back asleep for another 2-3 hours! Finally feeling rested!
I just loooove her to peices! Yeah, I am at home all day, doing the same exact thing day after day, sitting in the rocking chair the majority of the day, but I love it! Yeah for motherhood!
