Spencer was helping me go through all of the baby girl clothes that we have from Tammy. He insisted that he wanted to try on the green dress. Isn’t he just adorable as a little girl?

2014-02-19 11.57.19small

Pretending to sleep with Mickey and Minnie.

2014-02-19 11.52.12small

He loves the little dolls he got from Grandma Bay.

2014-02-19 08.03.17small

Daddy is a good smoothie sharer.

2014-02-17 20.30.23small

Whenever John and Lucy come over, Spencer makes them go everywhere together. “Come! Gom, Wucy!”

2014-02-17 19.58.03small

 Playing with Uncle Gom.

2014-02-19 18.01.24small

Spencer was trying to help me cook (on a hot stove), so we made him a 3-minute oven/stove. He loves it. We pull it out every day so that he can cook.

2014-02-20 15.38.02small

I wish he actually drank the whole smoothie. He usually gets a few sips in before he claims he’s done.

2014-02-20 15.08.17small

I woke this little guy up from a nap (I know, mean mom) and he cuddled with me for a good 20 minutes. He NEVER does that. It was the sweetest thing. We sang songs and he just laid on me.

2014-02-20 07.53.20-2small

He insists on eating on the bench every meal now. I’m not ready for this independence!!

2014-02-19 20.55.59small

We love our new kitchen table. We can actually invite people over and have room to sit!

2014-02-21 10.04.43small

Couch shopping. He loved it! It was a fancy maze to run around in, just for him. We ended up buying this couch. It looks great!

2014-02-22 22.20.35small

For a family date, we went to Panda Express. I don’t love the food there, but we thought it would be fun for Spencer since he’s obsessed with pandas. It was a success.

2014-02-22 10.32.46small

This is the first time he’s sat front facing in the car. We borrowed grandpa’s truck to go pick up some furniture. He LOVES reading books in the car. I love it, too.

2014-02-22 10.32.24small

 That face.

2014-02-21 20.19.00small

 We were invited for dinner and cake at Paul and Lindsay Hamilton’s for her birthday. Spencer was a wild man the whole time. It was yummy Indian food, though!

February 9-15, 2014

2014-02-09 09.40.10-2small

We went to Urgent Care on the 9th to find out that Spencer had an ear infection and I had the flu. What a bother. We’ve been so blessed to be healthy this winter. It’s been months since any of us have been sick. We were pretty thrown by this one.

2014-02-10 15.11.09small

My poor sick angel.

2014-02-09 17.11.03small

Eating the yummy soup that Grandma brought us. He loved it.

2014-02-09 11.23.41small

Hanging with the pandas at Wal-Mart while we waited for his prescription.

2014-02-10 18.46.58small

On Monday, Tom took Spencer to a birthday dinner for Anna, and a Valentines exchange. I was too sicky to go. Spencer was feeling a little better.

2014-02-10 19.22.05small

Playing games at the restaurant.

2014-02-12 08.22.29-1small

We finished the Book of Mormon for the first time with Spencer. He loves reading it every night, and usually asks to read it sometime during the day. He is such a sweetheart.

2014-02-11 17.29.57small

Having too much fun with the tissues. He’s great at blowing his nose.

2014-02-11 11.12.48small

On our sick days, we watched way too much Daniel Tiger – I just think it’s the cutest show!

2014-02-12 08.22.42small

He’s obsessed with his pacis still.

2014-02-13 19.07.02small

We went on a walk! It was 50 outside and I wasn’t about to miss out on the nice weather.

2014-02-13 17.54.26small

It’s been months, but we were finally able to catch one of Tom’s soccer games! Spencer loves going. Tom even made a goal!

2014-02-13 16.02.46small

Happy Valentine’s Day from my lover!! These roses were gorgeous!

2014-02-12 08.50.37small

This little chef is dangerous. He loves cooking SO much, though.

2014-02-13 19.51.17small

Ironic reading picture. Spencer loves his chapter books, and dad was catching up on the new library books. 🙂

2014-02-14 10.23.25small

Spence and I went to McDonald’s to get a Redbox movie and ended up playing some basketball in the play place. He had a blast.

2014-02-14 08.03.22small

Our little Mega Man.

2014-02-14 07.50.02small

 Happy Valentine’s Day to our littlest valentine. He loved his chocolates for breakfast.

2014-02-14 15.09.34small

Tom set up a “Twosball” tournament at work.

2014-02-14 20.47.35small

Experimenting with daddy – light + red balloon

2014-02-14 16.28.04small

Sweet baby Nora was born on Valentine’s Day to Jon and Anna. She’s a sweetheart.

2014-02-14 15.58.15small

Spencer and I made cookies and colored with new crayons. It was the best day.

2014-02-14 15.53.18small

Yum. More chocolate!

2014-02-14 20.49.17small

I love my little Valentine. I’m sad that I didn’t get a picture with my real Valentine. We went on a date to an Indian restaurant and had Natalie Jepson watch Spencer again. He did great for her. We had a nice Valentine’s date – and came home and watched “Austenland.” It was pretty funny. I love my wonderful husband. He is so good to me, every day.

2014-02-15 12.25.44small

On Saturday, we visited Nora at the hospital. I’m grateful that I still have a few months to prepare for our baby girl. 😉

2014-02-15 12.10.48small

Sweet little profile.

2014-02-15 12.00.01small

Tom is the best dad and uncle.

2014-02-15 16.07.09small

This is our future!

2014-02-15 10.43.24small

 Just waiting for daddy to get ready.

2014-02-15 17.23.42small

 This is the before picture of our closet. We needed more hanging space.

2014-02-15 21.44.13small

 Tom ripped out the old shelves, sanded, and painted.

2014-02-15 22.36.55smallAnd he installed new shelving! Instead of 5 feet of hanging space, we now have 10 feet. Woohoo!
2014-02-15 17.12.48small

He also replaced the old gold lights on the garage and front door with beautiful new black ones.

Piano with daddy.

2014-02-08 16.27.26small

We got a fun Valentine package from the Adams! Spencer was thrilled.

2014-02-08 12.06.25small

Tom got to go to the Skinner’s baby shower. I was too sick with the flu. He said it was really fun.

2014-02-08 10.27.54small

Spencer got a real haircut at Cookie Cutters. He looks so handsome.

2014-02-08 09.46.32small

He kept making this funny cheese face.

2014-02-08 09.30.11-1small

He got a yummy sucker after his haircut.

2014-02-08 09.27.22small

Tom said he did a great job during the haircut. I didn’t go because I was sick. He took a video, and that lady had the fastest hands!

2014-02-07 08.56.53small

“Heart, heart.”

2014-02-06 21.10.47small

I made this fun heart garland with mom Bay. She found the craft and taught me how to make it. It’s our first Valentine’s decoration. 🙂

2014-02-06 18.03.44small

Painting with water. It was fun for a few minutes.

2014-02-06 16.22.03small

Spencer “helped” me juice all of the oranges we got from Gpa Hancock. It took hours and hours over several days.

2014-02-06 11.00.48small

He’s a little entrepreneur.

2014-02-05 18.58.45small

He loves talking on the phone. 🙂 He has so many friends.

2014-02-05 17.04.37small

He stole his bear’s hat. Where’s Waldo?

2014-02-05 16.35.11-2small

He’s a “pewer” thief.

2014-02-04 14.43.26small

We bought a double stroller! We’re excited to have a little sister to join us on walks. 🙂

2014-02-04 14.21.53small

Spencer helped me hammer the stroller together. He’s such a great helper.

2014-02-04 10.11.16small

We got new bibs and plates and other fun stuff! I love Amazon Prime with all of my heart.

2014-02-03 16.45.29small

We went on a walk around the circle with the Woodys.

2014-02-03 12.17.46-2small

He’s a professional cheeser.

2014-02-03 10.31.50small

We babysat the Whitakers while Megan was at a doctors appointment. They are great boys.

2014-02-03 09.19.53small

Eating and juicing.

January 26 – February 1, 2014

2014-02-01 17.25.53small

We got to see the donuts being made at Krispy Kreme! Yum!

2014-02-01 17.50.19small

We had a fun night of eating donuts.

2014-02-01 17.44.53small

Spencer was…pretty happy. He gave us some pretty awesome cheese faces when he was eating the donuts. I guess we’ll have to go back. 🙂

2014-02-01 17.44.17small

Sitting with Aunt Lauren. She was brave, because he was a sticky mess.

2014-02-01 17.41.59-2small

Look at those little fingers squishing it up. They really were delicious.

2014-02-01 17.02.51small

We got stuck in the mud in front of John and Lucy’s house. :/

2014-02-01 12.02.04small

Trying on hats for the summer.

2014-02-01 09.17.17small

We went to Chuck E Cheese with Spencer. It was…fun, and overwhelming. There were tons of people there and Spencer didn’t really like the rides we put him on (the cars and animals that move), so it wasn’t his favorite place. But it was a great outing.

2014-01-31 18.56.43small

Riding the horse.

2014-01-31 17.02.23small

The new iMac! They have one at Tom’s office now, and other than being beautiful it’s really fast.

2014-01-30 10.51.52small

Spencer and I rented Despicable Me 2 from Redbox – he lasted 10 minutes before we turned it off.

2014-01-29 16.17.39small

Cozying up to Torbin.

2014-01-28 15.23.29-1small

We love selfies.

2014-01-27 20.30.51small

We painted for FHE. It was great.

2014-01-27 18.45.00small

He loves painting. All of the colors are “blue.”

2014-01-27 09.36.21small

Toothpaste chapstick. Yum.
