Change of Plans

So I haven't blogged in a while. We don't have internet yet at our house, so that's my excuse. Thank goodness my parents have it :)

We're safely home in Utah. The drive took us 3 1/2 days. It wasn't too bad, but I'm not doing it again with a 9-day old infant. Only a few days after getting here, Cory had a different job opportunity dropped in his lap. So instead of moving to Logan, as was the original plan, we're in Bounitful, only 10 minutes from my parents. It's a brand new office and on the bottom floor of a brand new condo complex. It's a good opportunity and we're grateful for it. Plus it's been very nice to be so close to family.

Spencer is doing well. He's gained a few inches and a few pounds. He's still got all of his red baby hair and every place we take him, the first thing people say is "look at all that hair!" We think he's the most adorable baby on the planet, but I admit to some bias :) He seems to have some of both of our personalities -- he's fairly laid-back like Cory, but at the same time, he loves to be in the middle of things. As long as he can see me and I'm talking to him, he's fairly content. Of course, he does love to be held. He's started to coo and smile at us, and it melts my heart everytime (a good thing, since I occasionally want to give him away, as he often refuses to nap during the day time).

Here's some recent photos.






We were trying to take a picture of his pouty bottom lip...




Spencer and his cousin Fisher - only 5 days apart in age.

Haha, Spencer wouldn't let go of Fisher... it was hilarious!


Not sure what he thinks of the Moby wrap...


He's got a very good pouty lower lip...

So cute!



All the boys...

His hair is getting more red I swear. He is so darling! I also love that black dress you wore for the wedding- pretty good dress for a wedding- at least its one you can wear again cause its so stinkin' cute. Did I tell you I got the checks? I thought I sent you a text but its a little fuzzy. YAY for Eclipse! I'm so excited. I hope you're getting some more sleep!

Hey! Glad to hear you made it to Utah okay. And great that Corey has a job that allows you to be close to family.

You look great! Spencer is a cutie. Love the little suit. Congrats to your brother on his wedding. And good for you for posting. I still have internet access and haven't posted in months. There are big plans to change that...hopefully I'll make some time for it here soon. You could always use the excuse that you have a newborn. Milk that for all it's worth, girl. :)

Hooray for pictures! I'm so glad he got an awesome job and you are all doing so well. We're happy for you guys, even though I wish I still had you closer to me. :)
Spencer is ADORABLE! I can't wait to cuddle him in July. I love the family pictures. Gorgeous wedding and beautiful family! Miss you all! We send lots of love from the East! (You're not missing out on this humidity...ick.)
