"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

Lautala is ONE

I can't believe how fast the time has flown right by.  My baby girl turned 1 on January 8th, 2011.  Surprisingly we didn't have a big birthday bash for her.  We really wanted to, but with so many family funerals and different things, we never had the chance to actually plan one.  Our little princess will have to have a big 2nd birthday party!  If you're a follower of my blog, you'll know that my little princess is named after Ma, Ilaisaane Lautala Fangupo.  It's a blessing for me to have my daughter be named after this incredible woman and I hope when Lautala grows up, she'll be just like her namesake.

Funny story....I was supposed to be induced with her on January 9th, which is actually Ma's birthday.  It was gonna be perfect because they would have the same name and the same birthday..haha.  It didn't quite work out that way.  I guess Lautala wanted her own special day so she decided to come on the night of the 8th.  haha

It's funny how different her personality is from her brothers.  She can't really talk yet (besides mama, dada and owie) and she can't walk yet either.....so lazy, I know....but she has such a bright, fun, dramatic, spoiled, melt-your-heart kind of personality.  One thing I absolutely LOVE is that she's such a mama's girl.  She loves me so much and if I'm in the room she doesn't want anyone but me.  I love it!  When she's sad or tired or hurt, she just wants her mama.  Ova always tells me that it's ok because when she gets older, she'll change and be a daddy's girl....but we'll see!  haha   She's started this new thing where she loves to give umas...she'll pucker up her lips really big and make the U....MA sound....it's too cute!!

On her birthday, we all met at Ova's parents house and just had cake and ice cream and sang to the two birthday girls.  It was a simple, sweet little night dedicated to both the Ilaisaane Lautala's.

Happy Happy Happy Birthday baby girl.  Me and Daddy LOVE YOU SO SO MUCH!!
