{10 Months old!!}

Sorry if any of you are getting tired of these month by month updates about Spencer.
But it's my blog..and my world revolves around there.
Spencer is picking up new skills all the time and he continues to amaze me!
He is starting to be able to watch me do something and then try to imitate it.
For example he will try to comb his hair with the brush, put a spoon in a bowl, etc.
{It just confirms he really is the smartest baby in the world! I knew it!}
He finally is crawling a little but prefers to scoot still and can really get up some speed.
Especially when the fridge door I never see him move faster :)
He is into EVERYTHING!!
Sleep...not so good
Will eat ANYTHING he sees
24.5 lbs
29ish inches
Couldn't love him more

And  now, for your viewing pleasure:

p.s. I am SO proud of myself for figuring out how to get this video
from my iPod to the blog.
Don't ask me how I did it and I don't know if I will be able to figure it out again.

4th of July fun...or 5th of July I guess.

To celebrate Independence day Nate, Spencer and I went up to Layton to be with both our families. We had lunch with Nate's family and spent the rest of the day with my family at Layton park. A good time was had by all! However we all really missed my brother, his wife and their 2 boys!
WARNING: There are a lot of pictures below. I was the only one with a camera so I took a lot of pictures (witch I probably would have done anyways :) and I need to share/show them to the fam.

Ask A.

What they were laughing at :)

Selling water and to raise money for the scout trip.

My Dad's carvings

Poor kid ate large amounts of junk that day. Everyone wanted to feed him.

I love this picture. It is my mom with Spencer the day after.
They are playing the piano.

Thursday, July 1, 2010


There have been a lot of things going on in my life and around me lately that have really been causing me to think about how fragile and precious life is. Too often I get distracted by things that really are of no lasting importance. Too often I don't take the time to appreciate the small things. Life is so fragile. Those we love could be gone at any moment. Of course living in constant fear of losing a loved one is really no way to live at all. But am I making the most out of my time with them? Am I treating those I love most, the best? Do they know how much I love them? Am I taking the time to get down on the floor and play with my baby?...he won't be a baby much longer. What are the last words I say to my husband when he walks out the door? What am I putting off that just needs to be done?! What fills my time and my thoughts? What if today was my last day? Did I live it well? I don't really know if this makes sense. I am not very good at expressing my thoughts and feelings. But I hope you can get an idea of it. I felt the need to express it.

Treasure every moment, even the not so good ones.
Take time to do what is most important.
Find JOY in the journey.


Did you remember to say "rabbit"?

If not, try saying "beaver" or "wart-hog" now and let me know how that goes :)
