I Can't Believe it!!!

Look who is 11 today...

Aanya Ma'ata Naulu Born November 23, 1997
When Aanya Ma'ata was born it changed my life forever. She was a beautiful baby, and still is..

(a baby that is). jk



She always has been a wonderful child to have, and she couldn't wait to grow up.

Aanya and dad playing cards at 8 months old

She crawled by 4 months, Walked by 8 months, and still has never shown any signs of slowing down.

Aanya 6 months old (i think)
She is a leader in everything she does, she excels in school, and in sports.


Aanya loves to be with dad, and go to work with him. (photo age 2)

she loves gymnastics, and hula, but at recess you won't find her with the girls, she will be with the boys either playing basketball or football.


Aanya doing Hula at age 3
"When she grows up she says she wants to be a Marine biologist, or a "doctor who delivers babies"
(But secretly wishes there was such a thing as professional football league for girls).


First day of Kindergarten

Being herself. (Tatiana and Aanya last year)

We love you, always be strong in what you do, always know your Heavenly Father and parents love you and want the best for you. You truly are a choice Child of God, who will help lead Heavenly Fathers Children Home.
