Pork Chop

This photo is a couple years old, and sadly I don't have any recent ones.

Spencer is almost 12, 13 years younger than me. There is a large gap in our siblings between Mark and Spencer. Not to mention that my mom found out she was expecting him shortly before my oldest sister gave birth to her first son Gabe. So yes, we are one of those families. Spencer and his "nephew" Gabe are less than a year apart and sometimes inseperable. They spend a lot of time together playing outside or video games and card games (yugi-oh and the like). They are either as thick as thieves or mad at eachother and not talking. I think of Spence as a beautiful baby boy with fuzzy hair. I used to often quote the Land Before Time, saying of him-"This is our new brother Spike." I am glad I am here to see him grow and become a high schooler. He is silly, chubby, extremely smart and bookish. He is friendly and very sensitive, he has a great vocabulary. He gags easily. He is a deep thinker. He is obedient and shows strong faith. Spencer, I hope to become good friends. I love you.

These 2 are of me feeding Spencer an icee and getting a thank you when I came home from track practice my sophomore year.

Oh, SO cute. Isn't it funny how we still think of him as a two year old?
