My heart is full

Yesterday was my fist real Mother's 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.

Sacrament meeting was really emotional for me too. I did a good job at not crying though. The primary children sang and it reminded me of being little and singing for my wonderful mom. What really got to me was when all of the men sang. It was awesome to see everyone up there and I really felt special.
After church we went to my parents house where my dad made some amazing sub sandwiches! I love my mom, she has been through a lot, but she is happy and always has something witty to say. It has been a really amazing experience seeing my parents become grandparents. They are great with Noah and Kennedy. I cannot express how much love I have for my mom and how much gratitude. I finally have some idea of how much she loves her children. It is so great to feel that love.
Next we went over to Jordan's parents house. Kennedy is one lucky baby. Sheryl loves her grand babies, and she is great with them. She of course has had a lot of experience with kids and it shows. I have always looked up to her. Growing up I thought "sister Holmes" was the sweetest lady in the stake. You know how there are just some people who always have something nice to say and you feel good around them because they are so good? Now she is my mom too!
I am truly blessed and I really felt that yesterday. I can honestly say I love being a mom. Surprisingly , it has been easier than I thought it would be and even better than I could have ever imagined. What a wonderful, eternal calling it is! I am so grateful for it.

Kennedy is SIX months old!!

Wasn't it just last week we were bringing her home from the hospital?!

It really feels like its only been six days and not six months. Kennedy is such a sweet and happy baby. She is so smart and silly. Right now her favorite toys are her pink lizard, musical piano, and pretty much anything anyone else is holding. She makes us laugh and learns something new everyday! This girl loves paper. She always eats it, and objects if I take it away. I wasn't quick enough yesterday and my shopping list was in her diaper this morning. (sorry, I find it hilarious)

Pretty soon she'll really be asking for the keys to drive take the car out! And look at this little pose!! This is my absolute favorite picture of this girl!

So here is a picture of her from today at the office. She was being so funny. It took the doctor a while to listen to her heart beat because she wouldn't stop grabbing at everything. Here are her six months stats:
Height 26.5 in
Weight: 18 lbs, 14 oz
I know, I know...just perfect. We love you Kennedy!
