It didn't hit that I made my baby: till just the other day

So the other day I was watching my sweet daughter pull off all the books on the second row of the bookshelf for the hundredth time when it dawned on as I watched her give me that devilish grin after she emptied the shelf that I made that cute little monster. every tiny tiny detail about her, my body made. Her hands were a product that I created and her feet were too. She is growing more and more into a toddler with each and every passing day. and her body continues to grow and she continues to learn.

when we first had her I was totally consumed with everything else that was going on in life (read about that here) that I forgot to realize what I had made and accomplished.What a powerful thing to be able to do as a mother. I was able to give my child every little detail of her body and mind that she needed. Now her personality that came from her father (I Love you babe!) Im in awe at the miricle that I created. Im so grateful that she has blessed our family with such love. She is such a fun loving spirit and Im so excited for what the future holds and for the chance to have my daughter as a best friend!

New Year Resolutions

Well it is that time of year again. Christmas is almost here and right around the corner is the new year. I have been thinking a lot about what I should work on for this next year because heavens knows I have a lot of things to work on. There are so many things that I would like to do to improve myself. Here are just a few
Daily scripture reading
Daily Prayers
One Conference talk per week
keep a better house

and the list goes on. But here is my problem I want to do all these things but I find that I run out of time everyday. Between working full time a baby and a husband my time is not my own. Even when I wake up before everyone it never fails that the little one wakes up early that day.

In exploring blog land the other day I came across this post called How a busy Mom can read her scriptures on This post opened my eyes!!!

 I always thought ok when the baby is down for a nap I will read or when the husband is at work I will study a talk but that is not what they need to see. They need to see a mother/wife that is improving herself not just hear about it. I cant not believe that I didn't think of this before. So my goal this year is to become the person that God wants me to be.
Because Im a list maker here is how I will accomplish this task

1. Wake up and write down my goals for the day!
2. Dont be to hard on myself
3. Read with my Husband/daughter
4.Make it a priority- cleaning can wait
5. Ask for help from above and those around me
6. Let my family SEE the mother that I want to become

I also found this lovely a couple moths ago and wanted to start doing this as well. it is called What moms need from It is a list of weekly goals that a mother should have and remember! I decided that that would be a good start to my week to read a goal and incorporate that into my life as well. Want to join me?

What is your goal this year? How are you going to accomplish it? I would love to know!
