Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Success with Solids





We are really enjoying solids with Spencer. Today we tried Bannanas and he loved them! Hopefully our tiny little boy will soon start to grow!

First Feeding




Spencer had his 4 month Check up. He is 26 inches long (75%) , in the 5th percentile for his head, and is only in the 10th percentile for his weight, weighing in at 13 lbs 4 1/2 ounces. So the doctor suggested to start feeding him solids. So we started Rice Cereal this last week . Here is the short video of the experience. I think he liked it! video

FHE with the Bishop




Last week we got to go to Bishop Driggs house for a Bar B Q / FHE, He is the bishop of our Young Married Student Ward. We had such a great time.

Girl's Night Out



During the Priesthood Session of Conference I got to meet up with some old Friends. Andrea, Rhonda, Kallista, and I were all freshman roommates together, along with (Michelle, Tiffany, Liz, and Cathi). Rhonda moved to Logan so we thought it would be a great thing to see each other. It had been ages. We went and ate at the Cheesecake factory and then went back to Andrea's House in SLC and watched/Danced to "A Walk to Remember" a Freshman tradition. It was so fun seeing you guys! We miss the good old days.

Homecoming Parade



Peter, Spencer, and I went to the BYU Homecoming Parade, which was just down the street from our house. We went and ate a pancake breakfast that BYUSA put on while we waited. It was freezing outside. But we all stayed bundled up, especially Spencer who hung out in Peter's Coat.
