Can babies get Spring Fever?!

These are just a few cute pics of Halia rockin her new shades for when the sun comes back after this horrible storm. She's dressed for the weather but she couldn't resist...she's just really excited for spring to come, can you blame her?!

Surprisingly she liked wearing them. She wore them all the way to Grandma's house. I truly think she likes pink! Who wouldn't want to see the world in pink?! What can I say...she's a girly girl.

I love her double chins in this one....I think she kinda looks like an old grandma. She is hilarious.
This is her favorite thing to do when my mom tries to get her out of her car seat. She is such a monkey!

I kou hanau 'ia {When you were born}

There is so many new babies being born in our ward lately and I have just been trying to remember when Halia was a little new baby.

I'm sad because she is growing too fast, and it's so hard to remember when she was so small. She is in such a fun stage right now but I miss her when she liked to be held like a baby and when she would cuddle with me. If any of you have seen her lately, she never stops moving...she is so spastic!

I found this neat Native American saying translated in Hawaiian. I wanted to write it down so I would remember it. It makes me think of what someone once said to me, "live your life with no regrets, you can be as happy as you want to be, it's up to you."

I love inspirational quotes. I hope to share this with Halia one day and inspire her to have the happiest life she can, and leave a legacy behind.

I kou hanau 'ia,
Ua uwe 'oe a e ho'onani o ka ao nei;
E ola kou ola i a kou hala ana,
Ke uwe nei ke ao nei, a e ho'onani ia 'oe.

{ Sale can say it with much better than I can:) }

When you were born,
You cried and the world rejoiced;
Live your life so that when you die,
The world cries and you rejoice.

My friend Jessi had this on her blog and I just had to copy it. It is exactly what I have been feeling guilty about lately, but it made me realize that I'm just doing the best that "I" know how.
I love being a Mom...it's especially hard being a working mom. I need to remember to not make myself feel guilty for not being able to find time. There isn't always time for everyone else because I'm just tryin to soak in as much of this stage that my daughter is in right now. I'm not judging anyone else who I haven't been able to spend time with because they are just enjoyin their kids too! But, I do have a goal this year to be a better friend, and at least try to see my friends and family more and make a phone call at the minimum.
