Balloon Doorway

 I came up with this one all by myself! Okay, it was a little bit from Pinterest, but I adapted it a lot. (http://www.bakersfieldmom.com/2012/09/birthday-balloon-avalanche/) I just stole a stick from the garage, blew up the balloons, wrote nice notes on them, and cut different lengths of ribbon. I tied the ribbon to the stick and then the balloons. It is all light enough that it stuck to the frame with packing tape. Happy Valentine’s Day, Tom!

 Spencer, Tom, and I ran through the balloons so many times that they did eventually fall down. It was an easy and fun project, though!

I love his “talking” face. He was telling us about how much he loves cupcake liners.

2013-02-18 10.52.06_small

This is the really fancy design that Tom made for Trent’s art show flyer.

2013-02-17 16.34.26_small

Reading times with dad.

2013-02-17 12.56.26_small

Spencer prefers to feed himself.

2013-02-18 20.04.00_small

We had a fun family party on Monday, the 19th, for Anna’s birthday and Valentine’s Day. Spencer was having a great time.

2013-02-18 20.04.21_small

Cutie Torbin was running up to him to make him laugh.

2013-02-18 19.10.48_small

Good catch with the camera. I can’t wait to have a two-year-old. 😉

2013-02-19 12.34.54_small

Tom got to go to a ritzy restaurant at Jon’s work with Grandpa and dad.

As far as I know, they had a great time.

2013-02-19 12.10.26_small

And really interesting/yummy food.

2013-02-19 08.37.32_smallMy poor angel was sick all week. We had to hold him through the night for a few days. He had a hard time sleeping because of congestion and coughing. It was the saddest.
2013-02-20 12.43.50_small

These were my prize for winning our Game-On competition. I love them! Thanks, Tom and Matt for letting me win.

2013-02-20 12.03.34_small

We had to darken the room and let him sleep in the swing to nap for a few days.

2013-02-19 19.33.38_small

I took this picture at New Beginnings on Tuesday. President Markus gave a great talk to the girls, and his adorable granddaughter helped him. The theme was “Your Happily Ever After,” and she was dressed up like a princess.

2013-02-19 18.59.51_small

Spencer has the best dad.

2013-02-21 14.23.56_small

I love his face.

2013-02-21 11.53.26_small

He was really going at this juice. When we took him to the doctor, she said to get any fluids in him that we could. He loved the apple juice.

2013-02-21 09.25.56_small

This is our new snotsucker. It totally works. I’m so glad we got it.

2013-02-20 14.44.09_small

Resting and drinking our fluids.
2013-02-22 15.29.26_small

Spence got a special letter in the mail from Aunt DaLauna and Cousin Jennie!

2013-02-22 15.43.45_small

He loved it very much. Mostly because he loves anything that I’ll let him put in his mouth. We have such wonderful family.

2013-02-22 11.27.37_small

He was pretty serious about life for a few days this week while he was sick. The poor thing.

2013-02-21 20.17.43_small

On Thursday, the RAW art show was in SLC. Trent was one of the featured artists this time around. Mom, Dad, Brittany, Tom, and Lauren went to support. I got to stay home with the sick boy.

2013-02-21 20.09.20_small

Trent’s artwork was given a lot of space, and hopefully got a lot of positive attention. He is very talented.

2013-02-21 20.17.00_small

Evidently, it was packed and loud.

2013-02-21 20.11.24_small

Way to go, Trent.

2013-02-23 19.51.54_small

Spencer has started to sit up a little better on his own. He’ll have it down in a few weeks, I think. He loves toys.

2013-02-23 16.19.23_small

He also loves watching the dryer. This lasted about 20 minutes. Ha!

2013-02-22 22.35.09_small

He also loves playing any kind of game on our phones. (Okay, mostly he wants to eat our phones.)

2013-02-22 19.28.10_smallHe’s a big drooly boy. We love him so much!

I love the hearts that were taped all over the basement when I woke up.

We loved having dinner with Grandpa Blodgett, Mom, Dad, and Brittany at Iggy’s on Valentine’s Day. It was delicious.

2013-02-14 17.27.23_small

Spencer loved watching the huge TV at the restaurant.

2013-02-14 17.08.44_small

He loved his hott date, too…please excuse the fact that he looks drunk.

2013-02-14 22.42.58_small

Tom loves red velvet cake. (I do, too.)

2013-02-15 13.24.13_small

Everyone loves Spencer’s awesome hair that sticks straight up all the time. Seriously.

2013-02-11 19.03.34_small

Spencer loved Face-Timing with his new baby cousin, Ethan.

2013-02-16 14.16.43_small

We love having lunch with the soccer team.

2013-02-16 16.28.16_small

2013-02-03 08.29.44_small

Spencer was just hanging with his sick daddy. Poor Tom.

2013-02-03 17.53.56_small

Our Aunt JoAnne created these DVD’s called “Little Playdates.” The boy really seemed to enjoy it!

2013-02-04 18.04.45_small

Dad went out of town, so Spencer got to be the head of the table. He took it pretty seriously.

2013-02-06 09.07.52_small

This little child hasn’t been sleeping well at night, so Tom let me sleep in the other day while he played with him. He was quite tuckered out by the end! I love my sleeping angel.

2013-02-07 08.05.56_small

Big developments this week! Spencer can officially roll. Front to back AND back to front. He is quite proud.

2013-02-07 10.25.44_small

He gets himself into some pickles now.

2013-02-07 10.32.13_small

He loves his new trick! So do we. It’s pretty neat to have a mobile child.

2013-02-07 19.15.58_small

He still loves bath time. And he needs it a lot more nowadays! He gets pretty messy with this solid food business.

2013-02-08 14.15.14_small

Spencer loves being in his “tent.” Tom puts him under blankets a lot, and he squeals with delight every time.

2013-02-08 14.15.21_small

His best time of day.

2013-02-08 18.52.14_small

Spencer is one lucky boy. He loves his grandparents and Aunt Britt.

2013-02-09 10.25.46_small

He loves carrots, too.

2013-02-09 18.51.43_small

Mom and dad watched Spencer, so that Tom and I could go to the temple and dinner. It was a great date.

2013-02-09 18.51.59_small

We ate at Taste of India. I love Indian food! It was delicious.

January 27 – February 2, 2012

Lots of snow and fun family times this week. 
2013-02-02 20.16.22_small

Aunt Britt is teaching Spencer how to play the guitar. He loves his lessons.

2013-02-02 15.25.19_small

He also loves food! We started feeding him a lot more solid food, because he seems so interested. And, I’m hoping it fills his belly more so that he’ll sleep through the night again. I miss the good ol’ days. I’ve been putting bananas in his mesh bag, and he devours them!

2013-02-02 12.49.09_small

We got a Valentine from Emma and Grant. Spencer couldn’t get enough of their cute faces! He loves his cousins.

2013-02-01 19.33.28_small

Reading time with mom. He seems pretty interested in books.

2013-02-01 14.32.47_small

 “Hm. Interesting…”

2013-02-01 14.33.31_small

 “Let me see that…”

2013-02-01 14.33.37_small

“I got it. Thanks.”

2013-01-30 18.30.09_small

He loved this orange slice, until the few drops of juice that got to his belly kept him up all night.

2013-01-30 10.56.56_small

It may not seem like it, but he was having a blast with Grandma.

2013-01-29 17.34.46_small

We decided that it was about time to have some fun in the snow as a family. Spencer was not too thrilled. It was so cold!!

2013-01-29 17.31.08_small

Eating snow with dad.

2013-01-29 17.29.57_small

Family photo-op!

2013-01-29 17.29.38_small

I love his little snow suit.

2013-01-29 17.26.16_small

He wasn’t too excited about making a snow angel.

2013-01-29 17.24.23_small

Maybe doing his balancing act will help?

2013-01-28 12.34.52_small

Tom at work…looking good, honey.

2013-01-27 19.58.33_small

Spencer had a blast when we moved his jumper to the upstairs closet. Sadly, this house doesn’t have too many doorways to jump in. We can see him from the dinner table, now!

2013-01-27 19.14.23_small

We made Valentine’s for Jimmy. I saw this baby footprint heart idea on Pinterest, and we decided to go all out and do the three of us!

2013-01-27 19.36.53_small

It was a good and messy time.

2013-01-27 19.36.28_small

He actually did a great job at staying still enough for us to get a good print. I was thrilled.

2013-01-27 19.38.40_small

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Bays!

2013-01-27 20.13.31_small

The final product. I’m so pleased. 🙂

2013-01-27 15.46.13_small

Spencer loves looking over our shoulders when we’re on the computer. He is a screen-a-holic! Phones, TV’s, Computers, he loves looking at them all.

2013-01-27 13.52.44_small

I love this sweet boy.

2013-01-27 13.52.42_small

And his goofy faces. He is too fun.

2013-02-02 22.35.37_small

My poor honey has been sick, I feel so bad for him. He rarely gets sick – especially the kind that keeps you in bed. Poor thing.
