Back by popular demand...


I've been asked about this name. There isn't much of a story except this:
When I was a little girl, I loved planning what I would name my children, and top on the list was Maren, because I thought I had made it up. Imagine my dismay, as a small child, to find that there was someone in my ward named Marin. I was understandably upset. My baby was supposed to be the only Maren in the world!
Anyway, I had forgotten about that name until a few months ago. I just remembered, oh yeah, I loved that name as a kid! And when she was born, Maren fit better than the other names we had considered.
So there you go.

Gnome pants
My mom made these, and all my siblings wore them as well as many of my nieces and nephews. They also come in blue and maroon. These are my favorite three outfits by far.

She is so beautiful! Maren seems like a very alert baby. I love the dimple in her right cheek.
