I am thankful for so many things and I could go on and on about them but I will say the three that I am most grateful for right now. First I am so thankful for this wonderful husband that I have. He is my best friend and such a wonderful daddy! He is my everything! Of course I am grateful for this little angle that is mine (this picture melts me). I am grateful for all this little guy is teaching me and for all the joy he brings into my life! AND I am SO grateful that he slept through the night last night (from 10 pm - 6 am! It was amazing!!)!!!!!!
Most of all this year I think I am grateful for my mom! When ever I am feeling less than patient or very tired, when I am having a hard day, I just think of her. It keeps me going to think of all that she did for me and helps me remember that I can do the same for my sweet little boy. How I love my mama!
I am thankful for all of you and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Want to see how chubby I really am? Two chins (I know there is a neck in there somewhere...)
Big belly :)
Strong arms
Looks like I have an elastic around my wrist but I don't :)
Rolls on my legs!

p.s.s to my last post...

Did I tell you that my 2 1/2 month old is in size 3 diapers...the box the diapers came in have this big baby that is crawling all over...I know what you are going to say...he is a healthy baby...just say it! He is CHUBBY to the max!

Well, for the first time since Spencer was born we had to get some diapers. Up until now we have been using the diapers I got for gifts and such. For a while I was thinking, "Wow we have not had to get diapers all this time..." and then I realized that although it feels like an eternity since Spencer was born he is just over 2 1/2 months! So we have almost gone through this whole stack.

Anyways...on with my point. I ordered diapers yesterday from and they got here today! Before lunch time even! Now that is service! And I hear they are the best price around. Just thought you should know :)

p.s. Does the number of diapers you use a day ever slow down?

The truth shall set you free!

If you are pregnant, have a baby or know anyone that has a baby you have got to check this out! Here is the story...This summer when Nate and I were at our city fair, we saw a lady with a both selling swaddling blankets for $30. Yes they were very nice blankets but I am such a penny pincher that there was no way I was going to pay $30 for a blanket even if it did come with a free DVD to teach you how to help your baby sleep better...if I could just go back and know how much I would regret that!! For some reason I kept the business card just in case! Well the other day I was feeling so tired of being tired and not knowing how to help my baby sleep better so I just decided I would give her a call. I went over on Tuesday night and got the blanket and DVD (she lives pretty close to me). I LOVE the blanket but the DVD is GOLDEN! I watched the DVD right away and I will never be the same! I learned I was doing a lot of things wrong! How many of you have been told that you need to keep your baby awake in the day so they will sleep at night? I was told that by lots of people and I thought it made sense too!! How wrong I was! By watching this DVD I have come to understand that my baby needs sleep! Lots of it and the more he sleeps...the more he will sleep! I also learned HOW to put my baby to sleep! The night I got the DVD I was able to put Spencer to be in 13 minutes!! Before it was sometimes taking me an hour or more. I would say good night to Nate and then go down stairs with Spencer and know it would be a long time before I would be able to go to bed too! NOT ANY MORE! I can get him to sleep SO fast! It has been amazing! I am no longer stressing about getting him to sleep...or about keeping him awake! I know HOW and WHEN to get him to sleep and I know that I don't have to wake him up so he will "sleep better at night". I can't tell you how much this "truth has set me free!" The lady that owns this company has a %100 success rate. That is pretty darn good, don't you think? I would highly recommend checking this web site out and ordering her products! I would pay a lot more that $30 for a good night sleep, wouldn't you? Here it is:

Spencer's Blessing

We blessed Spencer yesterday here in our ward. Nate did a great job and Spencer didn't even cry during the blessing. Our families were able to come over after church for lunch. We had a great time. Spencer is so lucky to have so many people who love him! Could I love any two people more? Good thing I didn't put him in the little white tux I borrowed from a friend...he pooped all over this black outfit before Sacrament meeting was even over. (plus he was too chubby to fit in the white tux :(
He melts me! This is my parents 13th grandchild! I love my boy SO much!

Happy Halloween!

Well I am a few days late but better late than never. We had a really fun Halloween with my family. Spencer was the cutest monkey you ever saw! Three little kittens...
Carving pumpkins for family night!
This was my Halloween craft that I have been working on for...oh about a year! I finally finished!
This has nothing to do with Halloween but it is a very special picture of 4 generations!
