Thought I loved you then.....and babies....

Um yes. It is 100% true that the first portion of the title of this post has absolutely N-O-T-H-I-N-G to do with it's content. I had NO clue what to title this post, so I decided to title it the name of the first song that popped into my head. So there. Ya have it.

No one can EVER say that I'm not random.....

Yall...my whirlwind of a life is continuing. But rather than be vague and boring- I am going to go into more depth of what's going on in the Spencer Household. Actually..it may still be boring, but hopefully not to vague.

To start with- I have started a new job. It's in an area that I have NEVER explored before, but I'm learning the ropes and I'm enjoying what I do. The people that I work with are great, and it's always fun to try your hand at something totally new. I'll spare the long story of how I came upon this job- but the best advice I can give you is to never burn bridges...and to always reach out when you need help. There are people from years ago that you may not have talked to in forever- and all it takes is on out stretch of your hand and they help. I hope to return the favor to someone else someday :)

Anyway, I'm working for an insurance company and I am currently a Property Damage Adjuster. Not sure where it will lead, but right now--God's leading it, and that is just how it should be.

I would also like to ask for continued prayers for my husband. He is still seeking a full time job, and in the interim, he is working in another city- and gone Monday through Friday. He is only home on the weekends and to say this house is lonely is a major understatement. While it is what we have to do right now, it doesn't make it any easier. Please pray for a permanent job/solution and pray that he and I can begin on an upswing soon. It's been a tough, tough past 6 months or so. (And happy 10 month anniversary to my sweetie. As he said to me today, only 2 more months until we get to eat cake , hehe. Thinking about food...man after my own heart, HA!)

The dogs are good....Beudreaux (ya know...the manly lab) has taken a liking to this toy that came in a McDonalds happy meal that the kiddos I used to babysit left in my car. So the said "manly lab" carries around this tinnnnyyyy beanie baby gerbil thing and will NOT put it down. Granted SOME might say this is a better alternative to the PINK pig he used to wag around...Rob and I beg to differ. A gerbil??????? Come on dude....but whatever. He likes it. The Schnauzer??? Well she still just likes food (and never caring about her squeaker toys until the MINUTE you get on the phone or try to carry on a conversation with someone in the room. What is up with that anyway???). She fits in here great.


In other news....Some of our VERY best friends are coming in town this weekend. It could NOT be a better time. Seriously...Rob and I have been living in the land of doom for a while now- and seeing their chippery (yes, I made up that word) faces--and getting to laugh and be silly while enjoying adult beverages sounds like something we totally need!!!!! I know that plans to head to the Rangers game are solidified...but not sure what other kind of trouble we will get into while they are here- but it's guaranteed to be a good time!!!


*****************


In some other- MUCH more exciting news....there have been THREE ADORABLE BABY BOYS born into this world in the past 2 weeks. From here, to Pittsburgh, to Canada...these boys have blessed their parents world in a way they never knew imaginable. Seeing these sweet mommies and daddies smiles and love just radiate from their faces makes me that much more anxious to be a mommy :) I know the time will come....but man....I just can't wait to see the precious child that is formed from the love their mommy and daddy have for each other- and the love that God has for us.

Please feel free to "ohhhhh" and "awwwww" over these sweet bundles- cuz Lord knows I have!!!


Meet Levi Reese Boyer.....



Levi was born on July 23rd weighing in at 8 lbs and 9 oz. I went to high school with his sweet parents, Jocelyn and Philip.



Seriously...how adorable is he???? Congratulations Jocelyn and Philip!!!!

Meet Kaden Hercules Peter



Kaden was born on August 4th, at a teeennny tiiinyyyy 5 lbs and 14 oz. I have become VERY good friends with his mommy- and even though they are so far away in Canada...I still feel like we get to see each other every day.



Kaden had some issues with his suck/swallow reflex when he was born, so he has been spending some time in the NICU in Canada. The doctors are hopeful he will be home by Friday- just in time to start his second week of life at home. Please say some prayers for this sweet family as this has been such an emotional time and they pray for their sweet baby, and feel so helpless that they can't "make it all better". I admire his parents strength, Faith, and determination. Can't wait for you to come home soon sweet guy! We are ALL pulling for you!!!

Meet Hudson Alexander Pettijohn



Baby Hudson was born to parents Natalie and JR. He graced the world on August 5th at 8 lbs 1 oz.



I met Natalie many years back though a mutual friend, and have been a long time follower/supporter of her blog since I caught back up with her a year or so ago!! They just moved to Pittsburgh, and I know it has to be such an adjustment being in a new place, with a new baby, and so distant from the things that used to be "normal". They are doing such an amazing job handling all of the transitions!!! It has to make it much easier being able to love on this little guy!!!




*****************

I guess that's all I have for now!!! Me a new job, three friends have brand new sons, and I still have Brad Paisley's song "Thought I loved you then" running through my head!!!!!

Hope yall are having a great week...and we'll chat soon :)

XOXO
