I came across a picture that was taken over 15 years ago and I couldn’t believe how small Brenna was and how little hair she had. Haha. Check it out: Look at how cute my baby was!!! She was still crawling around and I’m not even going to pretend that this wasn’t taken at the local Walmart that I used to work at. LOL. She took another picture with the Niko boys (her brothers) right after this but we couldn’t get her to smile or even look at the camera. She wanted to look everywhere else but the pictures still came out cute. Brenna used to be such a happy baby until she became a cry baby and now? She’s a loud baby. She whines about everything under the sun but she’s still a good kid so I’m proud of the young woman she’s grown to be. Still, she was stinkin’ cute.
One of my absolute favorite things to do is to have lunch with the 99’s. If you’re new to this blog and my life, then the 99’s are Brenna (my daughter), Cheridan (my sister’s kid), Makenna (my other sister’s kid) and Kaleo (my other, other sister’s kid). Kaleo lives in Colorado so it’s not often that he comes to lunch with us and for this post, he wasn’t there…it was just the girls. So we’re at Panda Express having lunch and the following conversation happens: Cheridan: I wonder how much rice these guys have to make a day. I would hate that job. I’m still salty that you guys kept making fun of my rice for the graduation party. Brenna: Yeah, I get nervous when I have to make big pots of rice. Makenna: It’s okay, someone else made worse rice than you at the graduation, Cher. Brenna: Oh yeah, Chloe! Cheridan: Oh well, someone was making her cry maybe. Was that back when her and Raymond [Chloe’s ex boyfriend] were ending? Brenna: Well her tears didn’t go in the rice cause it was dry. Bwahahahahahaha, this is the kind of shit that they talk about and it never fails to crack me the heck up. I love my girls!
These three have been close for as long as I can remember. They’re still extremely close with their different personalities and hectic schedules. They fight and bicker like sisters but they’re tight as can be. This picture shows that that’s always been the case when it comes to them.
L-R: Cheridan, Brenna, Kenna
Haha, Kenna’s teeth look like Lukey’s teeth now, Brenna is still the middle man for everything concerning the three of these guys and Cheridan is still as goofy as she appears in this picture.
This is them now and as you can see, they still like to stand in the same order. Haha.
17 years ago, Brenna was born and my life was forever changed. Every year, she grows more and more into her own person and I am so stinkin’ proud of the young woman she is today. She is one of the sweetest, funniest and easy going people that I have ever met and her sunny disposition makes her a constant favorite of everyone she comes across.
Happy Birthday to my favorite cotton picker looking, makes me laugh until my sides hurt, pisses me off over the smallest of things but is the very best part of me kid, Brenna. I love you more than you know and am so proud that you’re my kid. You’re a blessing to everyone that knows you and I hope you have an amazing day.
