Update

Lance and I are in Utah and will be through the end of the week, but Spence requested a new post (he misses his little guy!), so here you go babe!


BIG NEWS ALERT! Spence accepted a summer internship in TACOMA, WA, (aka "The City of Destiny!") so we are heading up there for the summer. It is a wonderful opportunity for him, and I am always up for an adventure, so I am pumped as well. We definitely want to hit up Seattle, San Juan Islands, and maybe even Vacouver. Hopefully he will have some time to travel around on the weekends. Note: This means, Lance will have lived in California, Arizona, Utah, and Washington all before his FIRST b-day! (I am counting Utah because added together he will have spent probably 2 1/2 months in Utah!)








My first Mother's Day was fantastic, Spence picture texted me this cute cake he made! I am so grateful to be a mom. It is the JOY of my life. I am so grateful for Lance. He is the best thing in the world. I am also so grateful to have such a wonderful mom. She is such a wonderful example to me in every way. I also think I have the world's best mother-in-law, seriously, she is so easy to get along with. I am super lucky.






READY * SET * GO... (wait, Lance forgot to go!) This is the latest on crawling - nope, he isn't doing it. He can hold this position great (once I put him in it) but he just really isn't interested. He'll probably just stand up and walk one day. But, I am fine with it. He is so easy-going. I love this little guy.





We also got together with Spence's grandma and his cute cousin Lindsay and her new baby boy Westin for an afternoon. We had a great time! Lance was so cute and gentle to the 7 week old baby. What can I say - that is Lance for you!

And Lastly - It's official - Lance NEEDS a doggie. As soon as Spence graduates and we get some roots, we HAVE to buy a dog. Lance LOVES my parents golden. He laughs every time Toby will come near him or licks him, it is so cute.

Crawling is over rated, actually I think any movement is, sitting is so much better:)! Glad your Mother's Day was wonderful. Congrats to Spence on his internship, that's great! Are you guys going ot the HS reunion?

Martha said...

Tacoma will be fun! I'm like you--it's fun to get out and see new places. And bummer that I never am around when you're in Utah. It would be fun to meet Lance sometime!
