After his 6 month doctor appointment we decided his swallow is a little delayed so we were to only give him a bite or two a day to let him "practice".
At 6 months he also started scooting around. And a week later he was "cowboy crawling" (which is still his preferred method of crawling). And by the end of the month he was pulling himself up on furniture and letting go trying to walk! He is trying to rush this whole "being a baby" thing!
In January we got serious about buying a new house. It happened fast and we didn't even think it would really work out. We wanted to stay in our ward because we love it and we love our group of friends here. We looked at one house, negotiated for about a week, and then when the sellers weren't ready to compromise, we walked. Later that day we got a phone call that they changed their minds and we accepted, I think we were under contract the next week?!
We also made a trip to the aquarium, and started packing and cleaning our little house.
And just some pictures of our cute baby!
Spencer was on a roll this month!
Spencer told me, "I like being nice, that's why I don't like stabbing my friends!"
Spencer: this drink is making my breath smell like ass
I asked Spence what he wanted to be for Halloween, he had lots of great ideas but my favorites were a T-Rex tail and the letter S!
(a lady from our ward commented that Halloween is still a ways away, my response was, "We start talking about it now so he can decide by May, I can plan by August, and then make it the night before" ;)
Last night Spence whacked me on the back so I said, "Owe! That was right in the kidney!" He asked what a kidney was and I explained it's an organ inside your body and it hurts when it gets hit. This morning he came up and snuggled me and pointing to his eyebrow said, "I have a kidney right here because it hurts when I get hit!"
Tonight while trying to snuggle Spencer in his bed per his request: Mom, you're squishing me like a smashed burrito!
"Dead man, dead man in a dish. How many pieces do you wish?" - Spencer
Me talking to Kade: Oh, you lost a sock!
Spencer: It was me. I took his sock off cause I wanted to feel his cute little baby foot!
