Just Some Fun Pictures

I LOVE this picture!!!!

Goodbye Jonny and Chiara!!

That is a typical Jonny face!! :)

Our good friends Jonny and Chiara are moving to China for a year this week. They are going to be teaching at a university in China. We are going to miss them so much!! I cannot believe that when they get back Parker will be 1! These pictures were taken right before we had to officially tell them bye for a whole year!!! I was genuinely sad. We love you guys!!

Mill's Beach Trip

Hey Sweet Boy!! I LOVE those eyes!!

Us at the Crab Trap

Papa K and Parker
Just hanging out on the beach and loving it! Ha ha!
I think this picture is funny because the of the ocean in the background and Parker relaxing in the chair.
Look at that tongue trying to get his paci and smiling at his momma all at the same time. My child is multi-talented. :)
Just a talking to me.

This was at 8:30 in the morning. :) That is what time you get to the beach when you have a baby.
Parker's hair gets curly when it is wet. I tried to let it dry like that one time. It did NOT look good. I think we are going to stick with it being straight, just like his daddy's!
Family photo shoot. I really felt like that too since Derek's dad had two cameras and Amber(Lindsey's friend) had one camera.
Three generation of Mills. Derek and I have been getting a picture at this exact spot since I first went to the beach with his family(when we were first dating). So, of course, I had to continue the tradition since Parker has come along. Goodness, he makes the picture so much better!! :)
Parker's first beach trip went great. Although, it was more for us then him. He didn't even act like he was anywhere different than normal. We had to get him a hat because it was too bright for him to open his eyes when we took him outside. The hat was too big for him but it served the purpose. I think our next trip to the beach(in a few weeks) we might get more of a reaction out of him. He will almost be 4 months then.

Parker is so good all the time. He smiles all the time and it makes me laugh. He is now smiling back at me when I smile at him. It is my favorite when I am on the phone or doing something and I just look at him and smile and he grins sooo big back at me. He now moves in his crib. We have now found him completely in the opposite direction of the way we laid him down the night before. Today, I laid him in his gym and when I came back over there he had moved sideways!! He has yet to roll over but his cousin Gray, who is 1 month and 6 days younger than Parker has rolled over a few times. So, we tell him that he needs to catch up with his cousin. :) He is so sweet and laid back. He has lost no hair whatsoever! Ha ha! That is about all for now!

Update #3

Hello! I took Parker to the doctor for his 2 month check up on June 28th. He weighed 14lbs. 2oz. and was 24 inches long. He is in the 90th percentile for weight and heigth. He had to get 4 shots and 1 oral vaccine. Derek went with us so that I didn't have to do it alone. I think now I can handle it, but I am so glad he went with us this time. Parker did so good! He cried but once we picked him up he was fine. The nurse was so nice, which helped a lot. Parker is talking and smiling all the time. He lifts his head up so high when you lay him on his belly. And he LOVES to stand up. He thinks he such a big boy! Everyday with him is so great! Derek and I feel incredibly blessed to have him in our lives. He now sleeps around 11 or 12 hours straight at night. Which, I hear, is pretty incredible for his age. Anyways, that is all for this update. Thanks for "tuning" in. :)

Parker's 1st haircut!!

Parker got his first haircut last week. He was only 10 1/2 weeks old!! We sat him in his bumbo seat. He can't quite hold his head up yet so I had to hold him when my Aunt cut his hair in the back. He looked so cute sitting in his bumbo. When we first put him in the bumbo he was smiling like crazy. I wish I would have had my camera out for that, but I didn't!! I took before and after pictures. Enjoy! :)

Before she started cutting his hair.
During...how stinkin' cute is he?? Makes me smile every time I see that cute face!
During, getting the back of his hair cut.
AfterAfterAfterHere is my Aunt Cherrie Dale holding Parker. He is by far the youngest person she has ever cut hair for.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is Derek's 24th Birthday!! Wow! My husband and little boy are sooo stinkin' handsome! Derek got lots of good presents at his birthday get together last weekend while his parents were here. Happy Birthday Derek! You are the best husband and daddy in the whole world!!

Parker's Dedication

All of the "Lombard" Clan. Tyler, Jax, Blake, Gray, Parker, and Sam. Kimberly has a better picture on her blog if you want to see it. I will have to say, these boys are the cutest boys around!!
Parker in his dedication outfit that Mama Don bought him the day we found out he was a boy! Doesn't he look so handsome?!
Both sets of Derek's grandparents (Parker's great grandparents) came into town for the dedication. They are so wonderful!
Here we are with Mama Lynn, Aunt Lindsey(who has been gone to Africa and Ukraine and hadn't seen Parker since the day he was born), and Grandpa.
Here is my family minus Sam and Gray who were napping.

Here we are with our brother-in-law Jeremy, who dedicated Parker to the Lord.
I wanted you to see the pretty table my Mom decorated for the brunch we had following the dedication.

We decided to have Parker dedicated to the Lord at my parent's house. My brother-in-law, Jeremy, married Derek and I and we also wanted him to dedicate Parker. It was laid back, personal, and perfect. Following the dedication we had a brunch and fellowship. Jeremy did a wonderful job of praying scripture over Derek and I, and Parker.

Our Little Family

Parker wasn't so happy in this picture. I think it was because he had pooped. Oh, the joys of parenthood. I actually do rejoice when he poops though.
Here we are on our back porch. Derek's family was in town and we were about to eat at Dreamland to celebrate Derek's 24th Birthday. It was YUMMY! We then went back to our house to enjoy an ice cream cake from Brusters.

Cousins, Cousins, Oh How much fun!!

Sam getting ready to leave the pool. No, he does not swim in his diaper. He was just in it because they were about to leave. He looks all bruised and scratched up, but really it is because he is all boy and accidents happen when you try to play on a treadmill that is going. :) He is so darn cute!
Parker at the pool with sunscreen in his hair. I seriously doubt his head will get sunburn with all that hair coverage!!

Sweet Gray!! He is getting some meat on his bones. Maybe he will catch up with Parker. :)
Here I am holding Parker and Gray. I already know, Gray looks like my child and Parker looks nothing like my child. I love it because Parker looks just like his Dad!! Derek and I volunteered to keep Gray while everyone else went to get ice cream. He was so good...

Blake told me that he wanted Parker to lay with him on the couch. So, we took a few pictures and shortly afterwards Blake informed me that he didn't want Parker to lay with him anymore. I think it is because he had to be so careful!! Blake is such a helper!
