Happy Birthday!

Here are a few things that Stella is into these days. I am mostly doing this for my own needs so that I can remember what she was like at her 1 year old.
- She loves to laugh, she laughs at funny things on tv or when anyone makes a funny face. It's hillarious!
-She doesn't like to be left alone, when one of us walks out of the room she screams. But then finds herself happy as a clam moments later.
-She is a momma's girl, she can say mom!
-Her best friend is Chesney, they can play all day if I'd let them.
-She is very calm and takes in everything around her.
-I can let her sit on a blanket outside and she won't move from the blanket because she hates the feel of the grass.
-She gets so excited she shakes and clinches her teeth, probably the cutest thing ever.
-She can stand assisted and army crawls with the best of them.
Happy Birthday Stella!!!
Love you~

Grateful for my girl....

I will be the first one to admit that I thought I was unfit to have children in this world!! I didn't have much experience when I was growing up with infants and I was always just trying to adjust to the new family environments I was put in, so little time went into dreaming about becoming a mother. I never had a "real" sister, yes many step sisters (6 to be exact) some of them were and are still great! But I never really had that sisterly bond or opportunity to have a relationship like that with family. I guess that is why I was always involved with some type of "girl" organization, dance, cheer, pageants and many great "girl" friendships. So when I found out I was having a girl I was shocked and scared, didn't think I would connect with her or know how to have a relationship with her. Boy was I wrong!!!!
I was sent Stella for many reasons and I am loving finding out new reasons all the time. Tonight was one of them. I always wanted those famous- boys go out to priesthood and girls get to have dinner, girl talks go shopping nights during conference while growing up. Well after hearing today's conference talk on the importance of Mother and Daughter relationships I thought "What am I waiting for!" So Stella and I had a girl's night out! So fun and of course not a lot was involved but all I can say is how grateful I am for my little girl. I look forward to more fun mom/daughter events. Tonight was one of those nights that you stand back and think.... "Oh that's why Heavenly Father did that." I love this time of year, love conference and love my Stella!
