1902 (Tuesday) – We are all alone tonight. Lillian (Lillian Lunt) has been good all day. Alfred (Alfred Oscar Lunt Jr) has been quite cross he is cutting his eye and stomach teeth. I find he has one eye and on stomach tooth through. He woke up in the night crying, last night, he seemed to be afraid of a dog, he would say “Goggie [sic] coming mamma goggie [sic] coming”.

1898 (Monday) – I started back to school.

(Thus is as far as I went in this notebook)

1902 (Friday) – Pearl (Eva Pearl Sperry) took Alfred (Alfred Oscar Lunt Jr) up town and then to his Grandma Lunt’s (Priscilla Pitt – 17). In the afternoon it was so warm and nice then children were able to play out in the yard. Alfred was quite delighted to be able to play outdoors. Lillian (Lillian Lunt) was quite restless all day.

Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1902 (Thursday) – In the afternoon Alfred (Alfred Oscar Lunt Jr) stayed with Emma Wood and I took Lillian (Lillian Lunt) to Relief Society with me. She was very good all afternoon. Sister Jarrett gave me a lovely blessing in tongues; she told me I should be able to raise my children in the fear of the Lord. This evening I started Alfred saying his prayers.

Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1898 (Sunday) – I went to Sunday School, in the afternoon Mr. Pyper and Miss Gunderson came up for a while and Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I went with them down to the train. Esther and I came up to Aunt Augusta’s (Emma Augusta Taylor) for Ada Taylor and then we three went over to Grandma’s Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller). Aunt Emma Hague (Emma Elizabeth Webb) came up and spent the afternoon with us. in the evening Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) came up and we went to meeting. Brother Iverson gave a lecture on repentance. Oh it was fine. I do so like to hear him talk.

1902 (Wednesday) – I am going to write a brief synopsis of the lives of my two babies up until now after which I would like to keep a daily account of their doings and sayings as often as I have time to write.

Alfred Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt Jr.) was born 10 January 1900. When between six and seven weeks old he became he became sick with earsyplis and we nearly lost our baby, it started with a spot on top of his head and we thought he might have been a bit by a spider or something, it spread very quickly the next morning, which was Sunday, we took him down to Oscar’s (Alfred Oscar Lunt) parents, (Alfred Lunt and Priscilla Pitt), and remained there for two or three days, I was ordered to bed early and Grandma Lunt cared for him. He was worse next day and that evening two sisters from the Relief Society sat up with him, I longed to get out of bed and take care of him as he cried so pitifully, finally Grandma came down stairs and got him to sleep. The next day, Wednesday, he was still very ill, Brother Orme came to the house and we had him administer to the baby, he promised he would be well and also that he would have a good a night’s rest, he went to sleep before I did and when he woke up it was six thirty in the morning, surely the prayer had been answered. Inside of a couple of weeks the baby was well again. When he was about four months old we moved down to the Old Sperry farm. We spent the summer month’s there and on returning to town we rented the brown house, it wasn’t a very good place. He was weaned when he was thirteen months old and started to walk when 14 months old. Before this time he walked by chairs or of holding to his buggy he would go all over but on the day he really started to walk he came running to me as I was by the stove cooking breakfast and burned his hand on the stove. That didn’t stop him for he kept running from room to room nearly all of that day.

On the 4th of July he too sick and was sick for two or three days, running quite a fever. But since then he has been quite well and strong. He has been a very good baby having a cross spell only once in a while.

Lillian was born 30 October 1901 and was blessed 1 December 1901. She is larger than Alfred was, when she was two month’s old she weighed 11 ½ lbs. She is quite a good baby although she usually has one real hard crying spell a day, most always before going to bed.

1902 (Sunday) – Today is New Year’s Day. Alfred (Alfred Oscar Lunt Jr) has been very good today. When I went out to get the kindling’s and coal in he stood on the porch and wanted to help me carry them in. Lillian (Lillian Lunt) had been quite restless this afternoon but is sleeping well this evening. We were quite disappointed because my husband (Alfred Oscar Lunt) didn’t come home today.
