She has never had it easy. Her life started out hard and continues to be and yet she has no idea how grateful I am to call her mother. All of my life I have been blessed to be surrounded by extremely beautiful and talented women. I am not sure why this is but of all the women I know I respect and admire her the most and always have. Even as a teenager when most girls couldn't stand their mothers I knew that mine was extraordinary. Perhaps it has been the trials that have refined her to who she is. Just when I think her life should get easier something overwhelmingly trying comes along. Perhaps she is just too capable. I have never known her to give up. I look at my life at times and wonder if I think that I can do so much because I watched her do it. Reality is I have never faced the kind of difficult trials that she has and probably never will, because she has sheltered me from them. Her sacrifice has always blessed my life from the very beginning. She would drive miles to come back to the hospital to nurse me. I am so blessed in my life to be raised by sister to and friend to so many supreme examples of woman who are strong. I hope with all of my heart that my daughter will grow up to be this kind of woman. Perhaps that is one of the reasons I chose to have her on my mothers birthday! Happy Birthday Mom and Brianna.Brianna, I hope you always know how much you add to my life and how glad I am that you were born in our family that stems from some very remarkable women. It seems like your Dad gave you a name and a blessing just the other day and yet here we are today you are 5.

Happy Birthday Grandpa Knight and Chloe. Grandpa Knight One of the things that sealed the deal for me when I was dating Robert was hearing his Dad pray and feeling the spirit. I thought that it was important to marry someone who had parents that were rooted in the gospel so my kids would have spiritual strength coming from both sides. Jim is a good example of someone who tries hard to study the doctrines of the gospel. I am greatful for his example. He struggles with his health but is never too tired or in too much pain to enjoy our children and I am really glad that they have such a loving Grandfather and I know if they ever need spiritual advice he will advice them well.
What can I say about my Chloe she is so smart and fun and energetic everything a four year old should be. She is sensitive and full of excitment I am pretty sure that someday I will look up to her as Brianna does now and not just because of her height!

Brenna had a birthday and she is now 5 she was a delightful hostess and the cutest fairy ever. Brianna and her may just take over the world someday. They are both so sassy and cute. They are only three weeks apart so Brianna has started planning her 5 th Birthday party I don't have the energy so I may just let her plan it. The closer it gets the better the idea seems to me.

You may not want to read this post if you are opposed to whinning cause I need an outlet and guess what at the moment this is it. I can't wait to be out of this nauseous stage I feel like I am going to puke unless I am stuffing my face and the problem is it is not usually snap peas and carrots that I am craving. I wish that I was one of those cute pregnant people but that is just not how it is for me I just turn into a rolly polly big butt big boobed is she fat or is she pregnant looking woman. Really my first pregnancy I was eight monthes along gained 72 lbs and people were coming up to me an saying oh I didn't know you were pregnant so most people just think that I am getting fatter and fatter and fatter still and I guess I am just that the reason is because I am pregnant. I did feel a need to try and have another if We were going to and so we tried and my first Dr. appointment he informed me that I am advanced maternal age... yikes I am glad that I didn't wait any longer really I am advanced maternal age? CRAZY!
