Blessings of being a Mommy

The laundry is done, the house is clean, the baby is asleep (a rare combination) and I'm laying on my bed thinking how did I get here? How all the sudden am I this stay at home mom to this amazing daughter? How am I so lucky to have a husband that works hard everyday while I get to play with my baby? It's like all my life I dreamed of finding the man that I couldn't live without (marrying him) then having babies and getting to raise them. You invision it so vividly and then when it's finally here it zooms by and all the sudden you've been married for 3 years and your baby is a walking talking toddler. Where is the pause button?! I feel like I've cherished every moment but at the same time I know I've taken so many things for granted. Being a mother is the greatest life calling I could have ever asked for. I still can't believe that Heavenly Father intrusted me with his precious Elsie. I'm sure everyone feels the way I do about their kids but it's just so special and sacred to be a parent. I'm so fortunate to be able to stay at home with her and play and tend to her the way my mom did for me. I hope that we become best I consider my mom😊.

Elsie blows me away everyday. Lately she's been jabbering away, takes the phone away from me so that she can say hi to her grandma and aunties. She dances to anything with a beat and is totally a girl in the way she twirls around in a circle. She has also started to sing ....mostly frozen songs. She loves making us laugh as we do to her. Her vocabulary is increasing everyday and can sign the words more, please and thank you. She also knows how old she is! She is obsessed with animals, especially dogs.

We celebrated her first birthday a little while back with both my and ka'i's family!
