Busy Busy Boy

Parker is a busy boy now that he is crawling and pulling up on things. One of his favorite things to do is crawl over to the window, pull up and look out the window. I truly believe that he is one with nature! Nature has always calmed him down even when he was younger.

Parker's second tooth has FINALLY cut through the gums! I am so thankful for this because he has been in so much pain with it. There have been several nights that he has woke up screaming in pain. It just kills a mom to hear their baby cry like that. This also has caused Parker to stop sleeping through the night :o( which is no fun for mommy or daddy.

On the Move!

It is official...Parker is crawling! He didn't venture too far at first but he was on the move! In a matter of a couple days he was going everywhere. He has ventured to the stairs on one occasion but didn't know what to do so he moved on! The true crawling everywhere began last Friday. He was even able to show off his skills at the Ranger game that night in our friends suite!

This past Tuesday, Parker also discovered that he can pull up on things...everything! He will just stand there and isn't too sure of what to do next. The only way down for him right now is when he falls. It is very exciting to see the progress he is making and growing but once again sad to know he is growing up.

Enjoy these videos of him crawling the his "roar"!!

Labor Day Weekend and more...


We had a busy weekend but a very good one! Our friends Merri and Kevin got married Saturday night and Sunday we hung out by the pool. Although I had the day off today, I am not ready for the work week to begin. I wish time would stand still and we could have some much needed relaxation as a plans, no chores...just hang out and chill.
Being lovey on my daddy!!

Parker went to my parents Saturday while we went to the wedding. He did very well and was spoiled rotten by his Mimi and Papi! Mimi started a bad habit and rocked him to sleep which he wanted today when he went down for his nap. I do love the cuddle time with him though! Sunday, the rest of the family came over and we were pleasantly surprised when Ann and her friend showed up. It was really great to see her. Everyone had a blast playing with the P-man!
Hanging on the porch after eating my breakfast. Look, I have my Boomer Sooner shirt on for the first weekend of college football!

Parker started shaking his head "no" about a week ago and does it quite frequently now. He is also cutting his second tooth! It has been very rough on everyone. There have many nights that he wakes up screaming in the night in pain. I think all the pain from the tooth has made him want to be held more and to cuddle more again! I love it! Parker's rocking back and forth has progressed into 'crawls' now! It is very slow but definitely a crawl. Todd and I are not ready at all for this. He is such a busy body...he will be EVERYWHERE! I think I have named too many milestones to be happening at one time. To top it all off, as I was telling Todd that Nancy (Parker's PA) wasn't concerned about him not rolling from back to tummy yet Parker proceeded to do so right in front of us. We both were laughing so hard I think Parker thought we were crazy!
Hanging out in my swing sucking on my toe because my thumb wasn't tasting good at the moment! I also have my duck blanket that I tuck next to my face when I suck my thumb (or toe)!
