Welcome, Spencer

One of the biggest pieces of news this spring is the birth of our fourth child.  Spencer is almost 6 weeks old and we can't imagine life without him.

He was 10 lbs and birth and 20 inches long (I think they goofed on the length because he was 21 1/2 inches two weeks later).  He has slept pretty good from the beginning--about 4 hours at a time, sometimes I even get up to 7.  He started smiling and that is always sweet.

Hannah, Jonathan and Charlotte think he's great.  They love to hold him and give him hugs and kisses.  Charlotte is particularly sweet with him.  She's adjusted to him pretty well but misses time with me.

Hyrum blessed him at church on May 20th.  We were happy to have both sets of grandparents there.  It was sweet to see Spencer surrounded by the men that will have a great impact in his life as they used the Holy Priesthood to bless him.

Most of all we love him and are blessed with his presence in our lives.  We look forward to watching him grow and see his influence in our lives.
