So this is what Spencer looks like the day after taking a nose dive off the bed. We can't figure out if he hit the nightstand or if that is rug burn...his first real fall (well, first fall that he got hurt in, he thought his other falls were funny...)

And he has been perfecting the art of crawling for a little while now. I would put more videos up, but they take too long to download...

Only in Park City...

So I began my training today at Park City Medical Center. (I am going to be the social worker there and for homecare still as well.) Anyway, for those of you who don't know, Park City, Utah has a....unique culture. A rich culture. PCMC is a beautiful facility and let me tell you about some of the things that makes it a unique hospital, perfect for Park City.

  • Patients are no longer called "patients"; they are now "guests"; "guest services", "guest surgery", etc.
  • There is a separate entrance and elevator for high profile people (we go above and beyond when it comes to HIPAA).
  • The "chef" was Bill Gates' personal chef for years and more recently was head chef at a resort in Park City until he was recruited by PCMC.
  • Guests no longer have the typical cafeteria food brought to their rooms at set times of the day with no/little flexibility; guests will order room service from a menu anytime of the day.
  • PCMC has three fireplaces and honestly, looks like a fancy hotel. The walls are stonework from Brown's Canyon near Park City
  • There is a meditation room, stocked with literature from all major religions.

Should I go on, or do you get the picture? It is going to be interesting to work there, but more importantly, a great opportunity!

Don't mind the drool...

So yesterday Spencer got a fever that persisted to today. Translation=another ear infection. Poor little guy!! When he is sick, he tends to drool more, hence the big wet spot on the onsie.
Motrin does wonderful things and makes sick boys feel more like playing...or trying to figure out how to escape the crib. He now pulls himself up to standing so I need to move the bars up.
This is what he looks like when he loses his balance. But no worries, he quickly recovered and there were no falls.
Let me out!!!
And I just think he was so adorable the other day before church, he's a heart breaker!!!

We love our sweet boy...

Catch up!

Here are a few things that we have been up to lately...Spencer became nerdified--the youngest boy to get glasses! Poor thing! We can't keep them on him and these are temporary until they can make him a pair of smaller baby ones.
JUST KIDDING! They are just Jean's glasses. Off to the canyon...Apparantly Spencer was peeved that some kids were playing in the river and we didn't let him.
We also went up another day with some of my family, but I unfortunately didn't get any pics of them!
Spencer rode the carousel and liked it for awhile, but then I think he started getting dizzy and wanted off, but he hadn't reached that point yet in this picture.

We enjoyed the Fiesta Days car show, especially my Dad showing us all the cars that looked like the cars he used to drive. Jean didn't realize my Dad was so old! =)
Spencer was a bit tired after all the excitement and heat!
Oh yeah, Spencer is getting pretty good at scooting around the house, but the catch is he only knows how to go backwards at this point. He backed up into our "home office" and got pretty frustrated that he isolated himself. I need to get video of him on all fours rocking back and forth--SO CUTE!!!

So, after this long post, it is nap time!!
