Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Our Little Lady

Marianne is growing up she will be two in two weeks, I can hardly believe my baby is almost two! She is getting to be quite the talker and is saying short sentences "I wuve you", I want apple Juice, Spencer push Marianne, Etc,.. she can communicate really well these days.

She loves her animals and Dolls and is a very devoted mother to both of them.
We were at the playground today and she walked over to this little boy sat down and said "Hello Baby" he didn't talk back but acknowledged her presence at least.

She got some new clothes for Chritmas and we had to try them on. we had to go to the store with our purse and hat of course.
"I only where this old thing when I don't care how I look"- It's a Wonderful Life

Doing her blocks, her hand-eye coordination is incredible she has opened 3 bottles of child proof Ibuprofen and spilled it all over my floor.

Bollywood farms

Last Saturday we went to the Farmland area of Singapore- it is not very big :) but it fun and nice to go out for some fresh air. Bollywood is full of all organic plants unique and tropical to Singapore, and then they also have restaurant there that everything is made with the local food. It was fun and just a bus ride away.
