Cam and I had such a blast filming this cute little one, she’s got us wrapped around her finger that’s for sure!! First grandchild, so as you can imagine there’s a lot of fighting for her on Sunday nights at Nannie and Papa’s. There’s very few greater things than being and Aunt and Uncle! We love to wake up every morning and here her tiny footsteps running around (we live in the basement apartment, which means we love her most, right!?) And, we were so happy to capture a little of what my amazing sister Natalie does day in and day out. Motherhood doesn’t get the admiration it deserves, and she definitely lives up to Rachel Jankovic’s thoughts on motherhood that it “is not a hobby, it is a calling… It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.” And, I’m so grateful for a hubby that shares one of the same hobbies and passions of mine and supports me in all I do! You should see what this little one-year-old can do already! Oh and, she makes some of the funniest and cutest face expressions you can imagine! Okay, we may be a little obsessed with her, but can we help it!?
(This was our post-class film for Kale Fitch Films trying to incorporate all we learned)
“Mothers who know do less. They permit less of what will not bear good fruit eternally. They allow less media in their homes, less distraction, less activity that draws their children away from their home. Mothers who know are willing to live on less and consume less of the world’s goods in order to spend more time with their children—more time eating together, more time working together, more time reading together, more time talking, laughing, singing, and exemplifying. These mothers choose carefully and do not try to choose it all. Their goal is to prepare a rising generation of children who will take the gospel of Jesus Christ into the entire world” – Julie B. Beck
“What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else.” -Elder M. Russell Ballard

She wanted to do the filming and wouldn’t leave our sides!
