Parker 8 Months

Whoa Nelly! Parker is on the move....and it scares me! He is already pulling up with or without furniture and trying to take steps! Where did my baby go?

  • Parker has two bottom teeth and we are anticipating his top teeth coming in soon

  • He is so over baby food and wants to eat "big people food"- he has already eaten more meat than Braden!

  • He adores Braden and his favorite thing to do is follow Braden from room to room. Occasionally Braden enjoys the attention and agrees to let Park tag along!

  • He was saying "mama" and has now stopped and constantly says "dada". Brad is eating it up!

  • He gets very excited when he sees me and when I pick him up he buries his head in my shoulder and squeezes really hard like he is giving a big hug. I love it!

  • The BEST news of all...... He is hardly spitting up anymore!!! We are so thankful for this!

  • Parker is such an easy going happy baby and we just adore him, even if he doesn't always sleeping through the night! :)

Fishing with Palpaw

My dad has been dreaming of the day when Braden was old enough and interested enough to take fishing. Well that day finally arrived this past Thursday. My dad got Braden ready and loaded up the ranger complete with worms and a Cars fishing pole and off they set on their adventure. Braden had a great time and caught 5 fish and my ad had an even better time spending time with his grandson!

Braden's First Day of 3 Year Old Preschool

Tuesday was Braden's first day of preschool this school year. He is in the 3 year old class and will be going Tuesday - Thursday. I haven't gotten to meet his teachers yet because they had Open House on Thursday which was my first day of school and they didn't offer an evening Open House this year, so I'm a little disappointed in that, but my mom took him and he was really excited.

This year I let Braden pick out his own outfit.....he picked a Thomas outfit and I was not super excited, but of course he looked precious on Tuesday and he was so very excited about wearing it! He also got new shoes which he refused to take off after he tried them on. So Tuesday morning he woke up really excited and we got him dressed complete with spiky hair and he has come home so excited about school everyday so far.

Wednesday I picked Braden up from my parents and he fell asleep in the car on the way home. We had to stop at Wal Mart and he was so sleepy he slept in the buggy and only woke up when we were on our way out. He fell back asleep in the car and when we got home I carried him to the kitchen and stood him up hoping he would wake up. Instead he collapsed on the floor and fell asleep. I cooked bacon hoping to wake him up, Parker played all around him, I cooked dinner and Avery kept sniffing him, but he just kept sleeping. When Brad got home he was still sleeping. Brad tried to wake him up, but he was so sleepy that he just put him in his bed and he slept until 6 this morning when Brad woke him up! I don't know what they did at school, but whatever it was it wore him out!
