Smile....

(this was my little princess...smiling this morning...so happy my camera was fast enough to catch this!)
You can click here to see her first "meet baby" video! www.kandeeland.com
I thought it was perfect that after I posted about me being nicknamed "Smiley"....then to wake up to this precious little smile...heavenly.

Yesterday...and I knew it was coming...after you have a baby...all the hormones that were swirling around during pregnancy...now have no place to go...EXCEPT to make you cry...(imagine PMS crying emotions times 1,000..ha ha ha)...
tears ran down my face...my heart felt sad...and then I looked at this princess...and I can't help but just grinning a huge smile as I look at this picture while I type this...

I love this song from Nat King Cole....Smile
 Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

This picture always makes me smile too...my great grandma in my costume glasses...ha ha ha
if your heart is feeling sad today...if there's an ache inside that won't go away...
lift your heart to the heavens.....
and feel me smiling at you...from my heart to yours....
our smiles can be the greatest invitation to happiness!
Here's smiling at you!
(one of my favorite pictures from the happiest place on Earth, as well as my favorite places, Disneyland!)
love, smiles, and sending a hug through the computer to brighten up your day...
YOUR KANDEE

That first picture is so precious! She definitely has your smile. :)

My heart and mind has been overflowing with sadness these past few weeks, but seeing all of these smiley and joyful pictures makes me feel better, even if just for a moment. Joy will come in the morning. ♥

Kandee,
I not sure how you know, but you always know the right things to say. I've been helping my boyfriend deal with his dad dying from cancer and the last few days have been really hard. We are getting to the end. I just wanted you to know that your blogs and videos are my little guilty pleasures at the end of the days. I love just coming to your websites and listening and reading your wonderful words. You have such a beautiful spirit and you radiate that. The way you choose to look at life is a wonderful one and it rubs off. Thank you for doing what you do!

I love that song Kandee, it really cheers me up on a sad day... But no way near as much as watching you videos, reading your blogs, facebook and twitter, and feeling your happiness and love reaching me! Little Cupcake smiling was the most wonderful thing to see when I woke up this morning, and seeing your beautiful smiling pictures at Disney Land! I have so much love in my heart today thanks to you and your precious baby girl :-) love you Kandee! xXx

Annemarie said...

I too love this song. Boy do I remember the hormones though it has been so very long ago for me. After my youngest daughter was born a couple of days later it hit me. I knew she was going to be my last and even though I was content with that fact, thinking on it just made the tears burst forward. Oh, Kandee she is just so precious. How could you not be filled with love.

unique4u said...

She looks like her father at the moment kandee.Cute smile. I went on youtube last night because i had a horrible night. And found that Nat king Cole song its sad yet a beautiful song. Then on the side I seen that MichaelJackson did a version and Diana Ross but it wasnt the same as the original.

Gia said...

Hi Kandee and Beautiful Baby!

Thank you for sharing your intelligence, beauty and personality with everyone Kandee! The dedicated and positive way you live your life is inspirational and motivating. I have been following you since before the 'pink eye' video and I have loved every single upload and post to your blogs.

A friend of mine just had a baby on 1/23 as well and she was asking about how to get her pre-baby body back. Right away I thought of you! I know you enjoy working out and have done the post-baby workout thing before so I was wondering if you could do some how you get back in shape/how to eat after baby videos in the future. It would really help my friend to follow along with such a bubbly and happy person like yourself!

Either way, I will always love your videos and posts!
Thank you for lighting up everyday with your wisdom and creativity! Have fun naming your lovely baby girl :)

writer990 said...

She is beautiful Kandee!

Farah might be a cute name for that precious little one. It means cheerful one.

I'm so happy for you!! <3

Krisztixx said...

I looove that song too! :))) it's a really nice song to sing to babies! Cupcake is so cute!!! <3

Jen Jen said...

Your daughter is beautiful Kandee! I'm glad you post uplifting blogs like this about being happy and not letting the negatives get you down, however sometimes I think we have the right to cry about something that is really sad. I don't disagree with you about living a positive and happy life, but sometimes we can't do that when life just plain sucks or when someone I love says something really mean to me. But stay smiley Kandee, and whenever I have one of the bad days...like today :( reading your blogs really gives me something to smile about through the tears. :)

vfiti said...

she is so precious:)

millameter_89 said...

Wonderful post Kandee!

And as said by some previous followers, you always say the right things.

when I'm sad I go to your blog, (and when I'm happy and bored or other things) and you puts a smile on my face and makes me feel loved.

Tomorrow will be a month since my big brother died, so I kinda need you now.

And luckily you are just a click away on the computer =)


thank you for being you!

/ Camilla <3

Samantha said...

Your baby girl is absolutely precious, Kandee. She looks so much like her daddy! Congratulations to you both. What a blessing!

cupcakelover said...

i really believe you have a little bit of michael jackson in you, you're going to one day change the world in the most amazing way, and your going to radiate your smile to everyone on this earth, and your children are going to be in the best care possible, ANNDDD proof for that, mj's fave song was smile too! try hearing his version!

lulu_14_ro said...

I'm smiling with you Kandee!

melissa said...

kandee i just wanted to write and thankyou for being such an amazing person! i really cannot express how much in awe i am of you, you are such an inspiration. you inspire me to try and be happy no matter what is happening.

The fact that you take no notice of some of the comments on youtube proves to me that YOU ARE 1 MILLION PERCENT A BETTER PERSON than they are and your children are sooooo emencely lucky!! to have you as their mum. you so clearly adore them.

the only thing that matters in this world is that we are loved and you are loved by soo many and your children are loved by you.

Thankyou Kandee
xxxx

Linda said...

You and your family make my heart grow bigger everyday! Just watching you keep me smiling all day. I wish you and your family the very best the world has to offer.

THEsillyshannon said...

That song was actually written by Charlie Chaplin.I love it too.

Maia knezevic said...

Your baby is gorgeous!!! And I think it's so cool that even though you have four kids now, you still have time to keep up with this blog and your youtube channel!!! Keep up the amazing work!

K9 + Grace said...

What a beauty she is!

Kylie Mc said...

Hello. :)

Ask someone (like your super nice Mom...wink) to watch that cute little princess so that you can take a rest. Even two hours will feel like heaven. Also, ask for help from family and friends. I know all new Mamas get the blues, but I experiensed PPD and it was a tough time. Fortunately, I never had any thoughts of harming my little guy. In fact, he is what pulled me through. I would look at him and feel so much strength from the love I had for him. He kept me going, even during his crazy colic phase...hahaha.

It's so easy for ppl on the outside to look and say, "Wow, she has it all. She must be so happy." But no one really knows what a woman experiences after having a baby(except women who remember). It's tough, even with all the joy, excitement, and love. So surround yourself with loving, supportive family and friends. And don't forget to take care of Kandee too. ;)

Wishing you happiness and joy!!! Your new little girl is precious! :)

Elle Sees said...

i wanna snuggle with her! you're so lucky!!

She is so so so beautiful and cute !!! She melts my heart ! :))

-AV- said...

Hi Kandee!

You have no idea how much I needed to read your post today. You know that saying, "Roll with the punches"? I did not think I had the strength or the tolerance to take one more punch today.

Reading your blog post today has really lifted me up. You've brought back my smile and through that I've found the strength to continue to roll with the punches.

I hope you've gotten some rest. And I hope your heart is happier. As always I am sending you bunches of love vibes and prayers for you and your beautiful family.

-Ash

Christine said...

Kandee!

Mel814 said...

Right before I read this the day u posted it. About 15 min before I was really upset and someone said to me smile. I looked at your blog from my phone and the first thing I see is smile. I couldn't believe it I laughed and started truly smiling! Then seeing your beautiful baby with her big smile you and your grandma and reading what you said made me so much happier. For days after I think of this post and it makes me smile. You really do teach me to be happier and to not let anything get me down. I've learned a lot from you and so grateful that you share your wonderful personality, beautiful family, and your talents with us. Congratulations to your beautiful little girl. Love you!!
