A little update

Well I just figured I would write a little update about how life with our little princess is going since she is keeping me awake at the moment but refusing to fall asleep... at least she's happy in her swing... maybe it'll lull her to sleep but we shall see. She is a night owl it seems and I can't for the life of me figure out where she got that trait because both mommy and daddy greatly enjoy their sleep and are not night owls at all! Anyways... for the most part she is sleeping well (once she goes to sleep) and we took our first road trip with the little one this past weekend which was so fun! And I dont mean that sarcastically... we had a really great time and she did so well in the car. We went to Kansas City to visit Blaine's grandparents and aunts and uncles so they all could meet Ms. Peyton and they all were instantly in love with her of course! I think she got held pretty much all weekend and she wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

We didn't take a ton of pictures but here is one of four generations of women! I really can't say enough how blessed I am to have married into such a wonderful family and I'm so glad that Ms. Peyton will now have this wonderful family to enjoy as well!

Here is Peyton with Great Grandma Spencer. She has tremors but Peyton didn't seem to mind. In fact she seemed to really like it... go figure she loves being bounced and rocked and such! 

And of course we can't forget Great Grandpa Spencer!! This will be Peyton gets her height!

The day after we got back from our trip I underwent oral surgery and had my wisdom teeth removed plus another molar that needed to come out so Blaine stayed home with me and Peyton the past two days to help take care of her while I recovered but it has been a very easy recovery thus far and for that I am very grateful! Soon I'll be able to eat discomfort and pain free and I am so excited! It has been a long time coming! Peyton and I really have enjoyed having Daddy home though!!! We really try to do lots of different activities as a family! Tonight we carved a pumpkin all together (Peyton slept through most of it LOL). 
This weekend Blaine's sister and brother in law and our adorable little niece Tempey are coming to visit so they can finally meet Ms. Peyton and we have lots of fun things planned!! So excited to see them and get to spend sometime together and for Peyton to meet the last little bit of family. Especially her cousin who I'm sure will be a wonderful friend throughout the years to come! 
Well I think that about wraps up what we've been doing.... not too much but after this week hopefully I'll have another update to write about. But for now I'll leave you with some adorable pictures that our friend Joseph took when Peyton turned 1 month old! 

I really can't get enough of that beautiful little one!! I am so very blessed!!

6 years and counting

Six years.... wow! I can't believe that we have been together for six years. It has been an amazing six years and looking back I wouldn't change a single moment! Now we have a beautiful little girl and a lifetime of memories still ahead of us and for that I am so very thankful! Here are a few photos from some special days in our six years together! 

This picture was taken the night we first met. We were friends from the day one and it has been an amazing journey right from the start. 

This picture was from our first date.... we had been together for about a month but had never gone on an official date until this night. We went to red lobster and I think we saw a movie although six years later I couldn't tell you what movie it was. 

 This was taken the night we got engaged. This is not the moment that he actually proposed but since he proposed on a carriage ride he got out of the whole getting down on one knee thing so I made him pose for a picture :)

And finally a picture from our wedding day! One of the most wonderful days of my life right next to the birth of our daughter! I've loved every moment and every memory we've made together and I can't wait to see what the rest of our lifetime together has in store.

1 Month.... slow down please!

This adorable little princess is one month old today and I just can't believe it!!! I'm going to need time to slow down and stop flying by so quickly! She is our whole world and we love her more than words can ever express and I just can't believe she's already been with us an entire month! She is growing and changing everyday and is just a bundle of joy and we are so so blessed! I don't really know what else to say except that I love my little princess even if she is growing too fast! And I'll leave you with one more adorable picture that is from after our evening bath!
