It's Worth It... get a flu shot. Seth got a flu shot, working at the hospital its mandatory. Parker got a flu shot, being so little I felt it necessary. I was going to get a flu shot when I had time but now it seems pointless since this last week my immune system has taken a beating from the nasty flu bugs. Christmas day I was feeling great and then all the sudden the toilet bowl was my best friend. I was racked with stomach pains and chills for a good few days and then just when things were looking up I was struck again. Having a consistent fever of 102 for days isn't ideal this time of year. Today I finally stopped living a comatose lifestyle and realized a missed the snow outside and Parker cut his first tooth. I couldn't believe it, he didn't even cry at all, in fact during the time I was completely dead to the world he was actually a super good boy. Luckily my mother was our saving grace and we've been camped out at my parents place while my sweet husband works/racks up his hours at the hospital. At least I was able to enjoy Christmas morning and hopefully by next year I will be back to 100% health. Christmas pics to follow... eventually...

5 months!

I am putting these pictures up late, as usual, Parker will be 6 months soon but at 5 months he was just as cute as ever. He loves his daddy more during the day but at night he only loves his mom, which means I don't get much sleep since Parker has also decided that its fun to wake up ALL THE TIME at night. So if you see me around don't be surprised if I look like a zombie. He is an excellent little swimmer. He gets complimented on his adorable smile everywhere we go. He loved looking at the snow and he made the littlest snow angel in the world when it snowed here. He is super close to crawling... he does the baby inch-worm like a pro. He definitely has his daddy's eyes. He makes the funniest faces and is really getting into playing with his toys and laughing and distracting me all day. When I tried to take pictures he was moving around too fast so some of them didn't turn out that great with the bad lighting inside.

No, he is not standing on his own, Seth likes to prop him up against things and he will normally hold himself up for a minute or two before slowly sliding back down

And he is still working on balancing himself when he sits
