I remember being in the hospital right after I had Spencer and they told me that my recovery would be about six weeks. I remember thinking I would die before then...okay that is a bit dramatic but I did feel very overwhelmed. Six weeks felt like such a long time. And now here I am...6 weeks after the birth. I can hardly believe it. In some ways it has gone by so fast! And in other ways it has been a long six weeks...6 weeks is a long time. The transition into being a mom has truthfully been harder than I thought it would be. It has also been more wonderful that I ever could have imagined. I love that little boy more than I ever thought possible! Here are some of this week’s photos for your viewing delight!I usually just keep Spencer in pj's all the time because it is easy and we have a lot of them. But today he got dressed! I think he looks so cute! Of course he pooped on all over a short time later but it was great while it lasted! The camera really does add 10 pounds to this guy! I love these cute little socks that look like shoes!

I am pretty excited about this Moby wrap that I just got. I paid far too much for it only to discover I could have made one on my own for way less. It's just 5 yards of stretchy fabric! Oh well, I helped some lady who is trying to make money...right. Any how, Spencer seams to like it so far.
Yep, that is right...October 17th is my 3/4 Birthday...what?? You forgot??? Well so did I! The only one who remembered was my wonderful husband Nate! He woke me up this morning with a sweet card that said Happy 3/4 Birthday and a little clue inside. The clue sent me to another clue and another...each clue said something that he appreciated about me and gave the location of the next clue! In the end I was led to a few gifts. One was a box of chocolates and the other was the set of Jane Austen Movies!!!! I was so jazzed. He said he had been wanting to do something nice for me to show how much he appreciated me and he was thoughtful enough to think of doing it on my 3/4 Birthday! (no, we are not normally in the habit of celebrating our 3/4 birthdays...he is just cute and thoughtful!) He went out of his way to make today a nice day for me. I sure love that man! It sure is nice to have such a wonderful husband and best friend!

I just wanted to say how grateful I am for General Conference! I always enjoy it so much. I had a few specific things on my mind as I began watching it on Saturday morning and I was amazed that in the very first 2 talks I received the comfort and guidance that I needed and then some. I felt like during parts of the talk, they were talking right to me! I felt SO strongly the impression that Heavenly Father knows me and is very aware of me and my needs. I am so thankful to know that. He knows all of us and is always waiting to bring us comfort and help if we will turn to Him. How awesome is that!
I would just like you all to know that by 11:00 am today I was dressed AND had my hair done. I put make up on and even ear rings! I am so proud of myself!! Spencer continues to light up our lives. We are so in love with him. He has had a hard time sleeping well for the last week but last night was much better. Here is my favorite picture for the week.
