Parker is on his way to being a big boy.  It seems like just overnight he grew from my baby boy to my big boy. I think that a a lot of it has to do with the fact that he is talking now.  A lot.  Like all the time.  Hallelujah!  He started speech therapy at the beginning of June and he really enjoys going.  His vocabulary quadrupled in size a few weeks before he started, but Ms Debby is working with him on verbs and certain sounds that he struggles to make.  My favorite thing that he is currently saying is "Oh no!" when he gets upset about something.  He also started saying Emy instead of Agm (Ah-Gum) and it kind of made me sad.  However, he still calls Braden "Bubby"!
refusing to take any more pictures!

Parker is the most independent and stubborn kid ever!  I just thought Braden was stubborn!  Parker is fiercely loyal to those he loves and gets really upset if someone hurts his brother or sister.  He loves to hang out with Braden and wants to be so much like him!  Parker loves to put on Braden's soccer gear and pretend that he plays soccer like Bubby!  He adores Emersyn and whenever he wakes up from a nap or in the morning the first person he seeks to find is her!  When he sees her he gets on the floor and says her name over and over and just smiles at her like she is the greatest little person he has ever laid eyes on!

I totally dread walking into Parker's bedroom after nap time because I never know what I am going to find...usually clothes pulled out of his drawer or closet or marker on his body or furniture (we can't find the marker and he won't tell his hiding place).  While we were at the beach he got up in the middle of the night, put on shoes and got a Gatorade from the refrigerator and woke me up to open it for him!  What?  Are you kidding me?  This is why we keep him locked in at night!

Parker is very athletic and coordinated.  He can already kick and stop a soccer ball.  He throws a baseball and football really well.  In fact he spends most of his day either kicking balls around or toting a football or baseball around and throwing it.

 Parker has the funniest sense of humor.  Often he will say something and then crack himself up laughing at what he said!  He is so silly and loves to be tickled and cuddled.  He is our little handful and into EVERYTHING, but we love him so much and he totally lights up our family with joy and love in a way that only he can!
