Kena said her first word on Tuesday...and I am honored to say it is...mama!!! It is the sweetest thing a mother can ever hear. And if you are wondering "did she really say it?", I dropped her off at Grandma Alice's yesterday and I when I left the room to the kitchen, she said "mama". So I think she says it with intent. We love her so much!!
She also has another tooth, yes 'ghetto' mouth has her fourth tooth on the bottom. She is a crack up.
We are back to the rain in the northwest. It was so nice to have sunny weather, Kena loved it and I loved dressing her in skirts and tanks! Oh well, it will be summer soon enough!

The sun did finally come out, after many hours of checking out the window to see if the sun was peeking. Kena and I got a late start this morning, but because I had a fussy child or I didn't take a shower. It was because most of Kena's clothes did not fit her. Let me rephrase that, Kena is in a werid size. Since she so short and a little chubby, either clothes will fit her in length and can't get over her head or belly. Or some things will fit over her head, then are massively long. I went through three outfits before I threw my arms up and decided to just put her in comfy clothes. I guess its time to go through her clothes again. UGH!
We did end up going to the pool, but we didn't go in. I took pictures of Kena, Noah and Livvy which I will post later. There will be more pictures taken tomorrow...

Like so many of you we are preparing for the 'hot' weather that they promise we are getting this week. Its foggy right now, so I can't see the sun, but its also only 6:30 in the morning. I have Kena's swimming bag all pack (Adam's parents own a pool) even with her cute new bathing suit (g'ma bought her a cute one with ruffles on the butt!). I asked Adam to bring down the 'summer clothes' from storage and we will see if I can still fit in my old clothes. Doubtful, but worth a try.
No matter what I am bringing my camera (which is always in my hand) and I will take some pics!

Hey Everyone! Here are a few pictures of Kena with our new camera (which I am totally in love with). I have always been amazed by photography and I can give a try with my new camera!! I love more 'artsy' pictures, so these are mostly artsy.

The last couple of days have been really busy. Friday was my 25th birthday and Adam and I got some alone time at had a great dinner at PF Changs. Makena and Adam bought me a Nikon D40 camera for my birthday/Mother's Day. You have no idea how excited I am! Our digtal was starting to bite it (and its only a few years old) and I really wanted a camera to take pictures of Kena. She has such beautiful skin, our old camera just didn't capture it. I have taken close to 100 pictures already and will up load them in a day or two.
Yesterday my dear friend Suzeann and I hosted a Baby Shower for our Friend Kristin. We had the party at Suz's house which made it easier for me. It was perfect and so much fun!
Then yesterday night Adam threw me a "Wine & Cheese Tasting Party" for my birthday. Good Gravy did we have a great time. 18 of our close friends came to celebrate my birthday and I was completely honored. Adam did a beautiful job, even making little tags for the cheeses and seafood explaining about them. Our friends are just amazing and we had a great time...
Sorry to make this short I will write more later....

So, I am exhausted and of course Makena is not. Last night Adam had to stay up at the cabin on Camano Island (sorry mom...we couldn't make it up) because...well to make a long story kinda short, he lost the key to the cabin and had to stay the night until Phil (the owner) was able to get up there and lock up the cabin. He gave himself until dark to find the key (which might be under a pile of dirt, 3 feet deep) so I didn't have time to get Kena packed for a fun night at the Cabin (that is why we couldn't make it mom).
It was just the girls at the Cross household last night. I had my knitting, a glass of wine and Friends DVDs in for a quiet night (Kena fell asleep at 7pm). Boy, was I wrong. What I should have done was fall asleep the same time Kena did. Kena woke up 4 times last night, one time at 2am screaming. Come to find out it was a wet diaper, but normally Kena is easy going about that stuff. She woke up promptly at 6:01am this morning, yes right on the dot. I don't sleep well while Adam is gone, so I was going on little sleep. She woke up with a runny nose, crap! So to speed up to now, 11am she hasn't taken a nap and we think she is teething. Thank goodness for Ellen (we are watching it right now) and she loves to dance with her.
Exhausted, that I am. How I keep going, right now I have NO idea. My house is trashed and we are still in our jammies. And I hear my bed calling my name, but I can't answer it right now.
