Happy 10 years Bear!

10 years ago today, our girl entered this world. It was 9:36a.m. on a chilly Cedar City day. My life has never been the same, and you know what’s crazy? She keeps making it better…

Here’s a peak at the past decade
10th ~ this morning, I started a new Rhodes tradition by giving her one present for every year so far – #10 was the guitar she’s been just dying to have. I bought one for me, too {not a turqoise one like hers} and in a couple weeks we are going to start lessons together…we’ll keep you posted on how that goes. We are both really looking forward to it.
Happy Birthday, sweet doll. here’s to many more.

  1. Wow double digits-what a big birthday!! She is SO beautiful. I love all of the pics of each of her special days…isn’t is amazing how quickly time goes by? It makes me so sad sometimes. I hope she has a wonderful birthday today!

  2. Happy Birthday Kiana! How fun that you two are taking guitar lessons together! That cake looks yummy too, it’s our favorite!

  3. Happy Birthday Bear! Kade loves his guitar and is really enjoying his private lessons! Hopefully you will love it as much. Maybe you can be in his band.

  4. Wow! Where DOES the time go? AMAZ-ing! I can’t believe it… 10 seems so BIG… it’s like half way to “all grown up”! 🙂

    Kiana~ You were one of the most BEAU-tiful babies I have ever seen in real life (not to mention one of the heaviest! Seriously, you were a SOLID little thing!) and it has been so fun to watch you grow up… You are one gorgeous, talented, smart, sweet, and lucky girl… and are sooo very loved! We are glad that we get to know you and can’t wait to see you finish growing up! Happy Happy Birthday, Babe! 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday Kiana! Jane, you must be so proud. She is so talented and beautiful!

    Also, this means you have officially been a mom for 10 years. I am such a rookie in comparison and will from now on be asking you all of my parenting questions!

  6. Happy Birthday Kiana. Hope you have a great day. You are so beautiful. You are so lucky to have a mom that loves you so much.

  7. Happy B-Day girly! The guitar is a treasured talent to me. My mom is an awesome player and I’ve always loved it. I have so many memories of her on her guitar. I always say how much I am going to miss that when she dies someday. So never quit! You will love it.

  8. Happy birthday Kiana. I can’t wait to hear how she likes her lessons. My oldest has been driving me crazy for a guitar! I have always wanted to learn to play too. So cool!

  9. Happy Birthday Kiana Bear!!( i swear i left a comment on here) How fun to take Guitar lessons together!! Boston rips on the Electric guitar, and we did have some lessons when he was little. Maybe it’s time for some more!
    I love the 10 presents idea especially on the morning of the birthday!

  10. Well happy birthday!
    I love guitar lessons together!
    Matt and I want to learn to play the piano so we are buying a little keyboard and will be taking lessons!
    Isn’t it great that you can keep learning, no matter how OLD you get!!!?

  11. Kiana is so beautiful and sweet. Loved seeing the pictures of her growing up. Happy Birthday!
    PS-the chocolate cake looks delicious – day 3 on Phase 1!

  12. Jane, just checking in…your daughter is so cute. I read your old posts, blogging can be so addicting. Does your back and neck hurt all the time like mine? =) Anyway, I decided that I had to give myself time restrictions, just like I do with my kids and their nintendo’s. I figure I can always go back and read posts and just check in once a week. I love your blog, it is so great to catch up with everyone. But, I am glad I am not the only one who had felt that they have to rethink it to!

  13. Oh wow I can’t believe I missed it! I’ve been pretty preoccupied. Hope you enjoy the next decade as much as the first! Love you!

  14. Were you living in Cedar at the time? I didn’t realize our kids were so close in age. Tay will be 10 in April. My how time flies.

  15. I love it that I got to be there when Kiana came into the world! It went so fast and yet seems like 3 lifetimes ago! It has been such a great decade together! Happy birthday cute girl!
