Note to self: Don't forget the good days.

This quote from Sister Hinckley explains my day.

"Think about your particular assignment at this time in your life. It may be to get an education, it may be to rear children, it may be to be a grandparent, it may be to care for an relieve the suffering of someone you love, it may be to do a job in the most excellent way possible, it may be to support someone who has a difficult assignment of their own. Our assignments are varied and they change from time to time. Don't take them lightly. Give them your full heart and energy. Do them with enthusiasm. Do whatever you have to do this week with your whole heart and soul. To do less than this will leave you with an empty feeling."
— Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Today was one of those dream days. Max slept great, ate great and was overall so happy and content all day long. We played outside in the sun, ate lunch together, played some more. He took both his naps and during that time I prepared dinner, cleaned, did some vacuuming and laundry. Larry and I ran a few short errands and Max played some more in the evening. I loved being his mom today. Everyday I am really grateful I get to stay home with him and put my whole heart into taking care of him. Tonight while I was cooking dinner he was crawling around the kitchen opening drawers, taking magnets off the fridge and shrieking and talking up a storm to me. I love the tug of his hands on my legs as he tries to crawl up me and when I pick him up and he lays a big sloppy kiss on me. Today I gave it my all to my particular assignment in life and it was such a great day I needed to document it!

  1. I'm so happy for you! I can't wait to meet him. Can I convince you to come to Utah in June?
