At Spencer’s 6 month appointment, Dr. Wonnacott said that we should start having Spencer sleep on his stomach to help round out his head. WHA?! He *loves* his wrap, and I swear he can’t sleep without it. After Tom put him on his belly one time for bed (he was dead asleep), he has slept that way ever since!! He is the sweetest little angel. I was so worried that it would be super traumatic to break him of his wrap, but he proved to me once again what a perfect baby he is. He loves sleeping on his belly now!
He also loves any kind of music. Aunt Brittany was singing him songs and he was in love.
This was the first time he ate an entire portion of baby food. He loves pears, I guess!
Guitar time with momma. We’ve learned a few kids songs together.
Vantage. He has given up breast-feeding. He basically refuses to eat from me. It was sad at first, to lose that special connection. It’s so convenient to feed him bottles, though!! And he loves them.
This is our adorable Beehive Presidency. We had a Beehive birthday, and so we made her this balloon veil for her door.
Unfortunately, her door didn’t have a ledge. So the balloons got put on her bed. Haha. Happy Birthday!
Trashy Tacos with the gang. Becky Lang is moving to Arizona in a few days, so we met up once again to celebrate friendship. We’ll miss you, Becky! Good thing it’s Arizona…we have a much better chance of seeing you there.
Selfies with my boy.
I was really sad when I lost the pacifier clip that I bought Spencer. So I decided to make some replacements. It was super easy, and each probably cost $2.00 (mostly because of the suspender clips). They have worked great!
I love not worrying that we’ll lose pacifiers left and right.
I also wanted to make him a lovey, since he’s not sleeping with a wrap anymore. I ended up sewing three, for about $3 each. What an easy and cute project!!
He loves it already!
He’s such a sleepy sweetheart.
On Wednesday, we went to toddler story time at the Riverton Library. I thought he would love it! He was only interested in the kids running around, definitely not the songs or stories. We left early. 🙂
Maybe soon he’ll be big enough to enjoy it.
Teething toy…aka back massager.
I saw a recipe on Pinterest for homemade thin mints and I couldn’t resist. So yummy! I love anything with mint and chocolate.
Finally!!! Good enough weather for a walk. It was a gorgeous day. I loved every minute of being outside with my boy.
He loved it, too! This was his first experience on a swing. He thought it was pretty darn awesome. He kept smiling and squealing. He loved going higher.
My adorable little walking buddy.
I swear he was trying to put the pacifier in the pandas mouth. He’s such a good sharer already.
I am so happy that he loves this panda, because it was part of Tom’s marriage proposal to me. It gives me happy feelings and memories every time I see it.
While I was packing for our trip to Arizona, Spencer wanted to do a little light Ensign reading.
And then destroying…he was having so much fun, that I couldn’t bear to stop him.
All packed with our shared suitcase!
Oh man. I love thai curry. Add pineapples, and it’s heaven!! This recipe was super easy!
I ate it for about six meals. YUM!
Eating pears out of a syringe. It’s a little less messy this way.
He has decided that he likes his eyes covered when he sleeps.
At the airport! This random lady decided that we needed to have a picture of all of us together – so she coached us through it. Please note Spencer’s fingers.
This is the photographer. She came over to sit by us, since our sons were the same age. They were pretty interested in each other.
Just going through security.
He ate and fell asleep for a little while on the plane. It’s only an hour and 19 minute flight, so it’s totally manageable. He did pretty good.
Hooray! Home, sweet home. <3 Thanks for the great welcome, Tammy and Emma.
Spencer wouldn’t stop staring at Emma. So she stared at him a little. Cute kids.
Spencer loves watching the cars drive by on busy roads. Love those palm trees!
This was Tom’s only request for the trip to Arizona. They have a delicious buffet!
Greg and Tom all cuddled up during our late night.
My little giraffe.
My big giraffe.
We got to have a fun dinner with family at Sharron’s! JJ, Zach, Alex, George, Amber, Luke, Jonah, Tam, Greg, Emma, Grant, Sharron, Chloe, Lauren, and two of her friends were there with us. George and Spencer were fast friends…as Newells and Krebs usually are.
I think that’s Jonah? George was giving sweet kisses. I think he’s about nine months.
Swinging at the fort!
Grandpa Hancock came over to Tammy’s, and we signed him up for Facebook!! It was so cute. He wanted to be able to see more pictures of his grandkids. He’s such a sweet and wonderful man.
Uncle Jerry took Grandpa to scuba dive in South America this month. Can you believe that he’s 89 years old!? He’s an inspiration to us all.
Emma said that they were the “puzzle pro girls!” It was so fun to be able to play with Tammy and the kids again. I’ve missed living in Arizona for that reason only. I hate being so far away from all my family.
