Maren's Birthday

Yesterday was our celebration with Maren. I don't think I can fully express how grateful I am to have her in our family. She is so much fun right now. She is learning more words and is very vocal. As she is babbling, it really sounds like she is trying to imitate us and copy us which is super funny to hear. She also answers most questions with a "yes" or "yea" so we have had some silly times asking her random questions. She has also learned "uh-oh" and likes dropping her sippy cup or hiding toys and saying "uh-oh." She is mostly pretty happy and good to go along with all our activities. She also likes eating and so we were excited to see what she would do with her cake.

She was actually quite calm and methodical as she just played a bit but enjoyed eating the cake.

Eventually we just had to stop her because she was starting to get pink in the sun.

After a quick bath, she had fun opening presents. She had a few cards and the older kids were surprised a baby got money - thanks Grandpa & Grandma! She likes ripping paper and I think she was surprised there was something in there after she ripped it. The shape sorter made her a little mad because she got her arm stuck reaching through the hole.

She also wore her beautiful new clothes from Hong Kong to church today - thanks Grandma & Grandpa!

We Love You Maren!!
