This weekend was a fun one... I had a fever of 102.5 consistently and felt freezing cold the whole time. It was miserable.
But today my fever went down and Parker rolled over on his own three times so far.

Parker is now 3 months old! Time is just flying by these days but Seth and I are having a blast with Parker. I have some hilarious videos I am trying to figure out how to post so hopefully those will be coming soon. Parker loves to take baths, I mean he LOVES his baths; look out Michael Phelps! PK will be in swim lessons on three more months and I am excited to see how he will do. These days Parker likes to spend his time jumpin' in his old school Johnny Jump-Up, laughing, hanging out in the garage with his dad, helping me with the laundry and his favorite part of the day is in the morning (around 7am) when he wakes up and is allowed to be in our bed for a while. Parker is the cutest; I am bias of course.

If you remember, back in June we started a real garden of our own... Well... that garden has been growing out of control. We don't even come close to keeping up. Anyone need lettuce??? Swiss chard? Onions? Tomatoes? Zucchini? Carrots? Apparently we have been blessed with green thumbs. Every morning Seth and Parker water the garden and a couple times a week we go and harvest what we need but we do not need THAT much lettuce. I mean, we love salads and delicious sandwiches but we had no idea our garden would grow so well. So if anyone wants home grown organic veggies, let me know!

We had such a sweet surprise over the weekend. Uncle Keaton, who we haven't seen since... our wedding, surprised everyone and came home for three days. On Saturday morning we all got together for what we thought was a special announcement via Skype with Keaton, and everyone was shocked when he just walked in the back door and asked what was for breakfast. It was so great to see him and our little Parker Keaton was so excited to meet the uncle he was named after. Keaton is a Marine who has been stationed in Japan and is currently on tour in Nevada for a few weeks. He got to meet his newest niece and nephew for the first time. We spent the whole weekend with him and the family doing whatever Keaton wanted to do. We even managed to squeeze in some family pictures the night before he left, despite the rain and the last minute notice, we got a few good ones. We love you Keaton. We can't wait until you come home again!!!
The Harps and Parks love sitting in their bumbo seats, and yes they both have bibs on because they are drooling machines
I know these pictures are going up late, Parker will be 3 months in 6 days, but I figured I might as well. He is growing like crazy and it has been so fun. Seth and I are very lucky to have such an obedient baby. He goes to bed every night at 9:30 and sleeps 8 to 9 hours, wakes up and plays with us for a while before he gets hungry and then goes to sleep again until 10am. He hardly ever cries. He smiles and laughs all the time. Although he doesn't take naps very well during the day, I'd rather have a baby who sleeps through the night than a baby who takes great naps. He loves taking baths, I'll let him splash around until his fingers and tones are prunes! My only complaint... when he decides to poo its like he wants to cleanse his whole colon at once... what can I say, he's a three outfit a day kind of guy. But hey, whats a little extra laundry here and there.
He's also really into drooling these days

Last Saturday my awesome sister-in-law, invited us to go to the Tacoma Rainier's game against Portland. We were so excited to take PK to his first baseball game. He was more interested in eating his hands than he was in watching the game, but he sure looked cute in his baseball outfit. Tacoma lost 5 - 3. Thanks Auntie Alyssa!
Back in July, Seth went on the high adventure with some of the young men from church. They went to summit Mt. Adams, as some of you may remember, last summer we did this and it was the worst experience ever! This year, however, Seth said it could not have been more perfect. He took these pictures on our small digital camera and I am finally getting around to downloading all the pictures from it. This time around, Seth remembered to use sunblock and chap-stick. He also remembered to use his GPS unit, which would have saved our butts last year. Here are a few pics from his adventure with the boys.
