11 Months


Parker has accomplished a lot in the last month. He can now walk and can successfully climb up the side of his crib, climb on top of my kitchen stool to reach something on the counter that he wants such as a bag of goldfish crackers. He has grown 3 top teeth and don't ask me where the 4th one is. He can now open cupboards and drawers and make a mess in 5 minutes that takes me 10 minutes to clean up. He can drink from a cup with no help and prefers to eat with a fork. He still has a smile that seems to attract all the ladies. He can successfully take out all the toys in his toy box and his favorite toys are his bouncy zebra, his airplane and his soccer balls. He can brush his teeth on his own (he mostly just sucks the water off the bristles.) And he can carry on a conversation with me for a good ten minutes although I have no clue what we are talking about. His favorite pastime is playing with his dad when he comes home and when his dad is not home he likes to vacuum with me and read books. We love Parker so much and can hardly believe he is one month shy of a year.






That would be the camera's cover lens that he is chewing on

Big News

He's Walking! Give it a couple days and he'll be running around and Seth will have him outside doing soccer drills but for now he is just my little walking baby. Pictures and videos to follow but I'm too lazy to post right now.

Every Thursday

video

Seth finally figured out how to upload the videos from our video camera. Thanks hun! The video is from a while ago and during the moment where I filmed the game wasn't very exciting. However, Parker looks exceptionally adorable and he just loves watching his daddy play.

At the Park with my Cousins

Look at the first three pictures closely... watch Harper try to push Parker off the slide. She always tries to show him that she's older and tougher.




We live super close to the park so we plan on going a lot this summer. Last week I took Parker twice in one day! He loves it and I love being outside with him. I say it all the time but he is such a boy and just like his father. We had so much fun on Saturday when Gage and Harper came to the park with us. The kids played hard and we played the game red light green light on the way home. Needless to say we all got some good naps in that afternoon.



The evening before I had Parker we went to the park with everyone and I bounced on this thing for a good 10 minutes and a few hours later I was in labor. So I just had to give Parker a go on the springy thing... he didn't like it very much. These are the only pictures were he isn't smiling.
