Treasure the doing a little more
and the getting done a little less.

Hands down one of the best baby presents we have ever been given is our beloved turtle play mat. This play mat was given to me by my sweet aunt Julene when I had Hyrum. We have loved this toy mat ever since.
In November, we set it up for Brigham to really start to enjoy it. In these pictures taken in November, Brigham was too busy smiling at mom instead of playing with his toys. I love spending time loving, smooching and playing with this adorable baby. My life can't get any better than this.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S Monson
Sisters, there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you.—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
