Since we have so many pictures to share, I will post more on a separate blog. Wednesday was Kennedy's first birthday. I cannot believe that a year has gone by since this wonderful baby girl entered our lives. She has been such a blessing. I love being a mom. I realized lately that it has just become who I am, there is no turing it off. For example- I spoil her even when she's not around. I can't help but buy her a little something when we go out, or save her some of my food to share. She is always on my mind. I have never seen a baby with so much personality. She is so observant and smart. From the start, Kennedy was hitting all of the mile-stones early on. She held her own head within a few weeks, she crawled at six months, and took her first steps at nine and a half months. She is so good at mimicking people. If she sees how something is done once or twice, she an usually do it herself. It seems like she can do something new every day, and of course we think it's remarkable.

Kennedy does something new everyday, I can't keep up. Lately she loves to open the fridge and climb the shelves. I'm a little nervous because she climbs anything she can. Hopefully we wont wake up to her sitting on top of the fridge...

Yesterday was my fist real Mother's Day...as a mom! It was a very special day for me. I was actually really excited for the day. It started off with Jordan making me breakfast( he does this quite often) but next to my plate was a sweet poem he wrote for me. I was really hoping he would write me one- those have been the best gifts from him. Of course it touched my heart and made me cry, I think he felt pretty good about that.

Doesn't describe this cute girl! We love her chubby-ness oh so much! She is the epitome of baby fat. I couldn't resist sharing these pictures because they made us laugh. Just a note- she photographs a little chubbier than she really is, especially when her aunt Dejah takes the picture...I just don't want her to get a complex, you know?

This Easter was my favortie so far. It was also conference weekend, which I really liked that they fell on the same weekend. Sunday morning we watched conference at home (while I did Jordan's hair with Kennedy's clips) then we went to the Pitt family Easter dinner. This is one of my favorite holidays. Everything feels so new and fresh and it is the most important holiday to remember Christ. The PItts still do easter egg hunts- I love it. Kennedy had her first hunt this year. The prizes are awesome and being with family is even better.

That I am the luckiest girl. Jordan is a great man, husband, and father. He puts up with a lot (aka- me). He is so talented in everything. I feel like he is one of those people who can do anything really well. He is a great cook, very knowledgeable about gadgets and electronics, a great artist, and can write amazing poetry. He always has a way of making me feel loved and making everything better. He is such a calm and patient person, but he always has a joke in him. April 1st will mark the two year anniversary of our first date. Asking him out was the best thing I ever did. I still can't figure out why he chose me. I don't have the words to describe how much I love him. He helps me to be a better person, because I figure I should at least try to be in his league, since he is way out of mine. Everyday, he does something that impresses me and reminds me of just how lucky I am that he is mine. Forever.

1. L.A.- the belly of the beast
2. Way too crowded. You know how people say California is great because you can go to the beach, desert,and the mountains all in one day! Yeah, what hidden freeway are you taking where there isn't any traffic making that possible?
3. Too many dang hippies
4. We only have one season here- warm. If we do have some rain, we are suddenly on "Storm Watch 2010"
5. Nobody knows how to drive. We might as well stop installing turn signals because no one knows how to work them. For the few of us that do use them, it is pointless, everyone just speeds up anyway.
6. We are taxed on everything and our taxes are way too high. Everything is expensive.
7. Is there a single road that doesn't have a pot hole, big cracks, or uneven pavement?
9. Most beaches I have been to here look like the world's toilet, not all but most.
10. So many people smoke (ok so I can't really say they don't elsewhere) but I am so sick of not having fresh air. Our freeways and streets are littered with cigarettes (and other trash) and smokers are always ignoring the fact that they can't smoke close to buildings. Every time I go out someone around me is smoking.
Yeah this is a Breana rant. We drove to Santa Monica yesterday and every time I go out these are my thoughts. As much as I don't care for this state, there is one reason we are here- we grew up here, our family is here, it is home!
