Before and After Parker's 2nd Haircut


No matter what he is so darn cute! But his haircut gives me a little bit more control over his hair. :)

Parker's Nursery

Ok, for those of you who have not seen Parker's nursery here are some pictures. Sorry it has taken me so long to post them. I LOVE his nursery. The only thing that is missing is I have a beautiful chunky 12x16 frame that is going to have one of Parker's newborn pictures in it. It will go right above the chair that is in the picture right above.

"Continue having firsts together"(Wade Lombard)

Well...Wade Lombard once told Derek and I that we should never stop having firsts together. I LOVE that advice!! That advice can continue on through your kids also. Derek and I just had our first baby. Now, we get to experience our baby's first moments when he does new things.
The top pictures were taken of Parker when we put him in the exersaucer for the first time. He loved it!!! We thought he would because he loves to stand up. The last two pictures are of Parker hanging out with me today. I needed to separate our laundry to put in the wash. So, I got some sheets that I was about to wash and plopped Parker right on top. He has never hung out with me right there when I did laundry. He loved it!! He just laid there and watched me. It was great. Don't forget to continue having firsts, even if you feel like you have already done everything(got married...had kids...) create a first!!

Family Beach Trip '07

Below are pictures from our beach trip with my family. We had soooo much fun and it was so relaxing. Parker was great the whole time we were there. We stayed for 7 days in a six bedroom house. We are hoping to book the exact same place for next year. It was a great end to the summer. We are sad, though, because Ashley, Jeremy and the boys had to leave to go back to Texas. We miss them, but are so thankful that they were able to spend the summer here in Birmingham. Enjoy!!
Here is one of many pictures taken before the one we actually post. Notice: Sam has his hands on Jax's head. Gray is hanging on by a thread in blakes hands(he is only 2 1/2 months old, obviously the fourth). Tyler is entertaining Parker. And Jeremy is coming to Gray's rescue. And here is a great picture of the boys. L-R: Jax, Blake, Parker, Sam, Tyler, and Gray
Mama Don and Parker

Jax with sunscreen in his hair... absolutely hilarious!

Here is a perfect picture. This is a picture of exactly what my dad does to entertain all of his baby grandsons. He makes noises with his mouth and they LOVE it!! My mom tried to do it once...lets just say it was not a success. Ha ha!

Blake and Parker

Parker in his crab float. This is where Parker, Gray and sometimes Jax hung out at the pool. It was so nice because it had a shade. Parker and Gray are too little to be able to really open their eyes at the pool. They both liked it MOST of the time. ha ha!
Parker getting ready to eat cereal for the first time. I now feed it to him every morning. He acts like he could do without it. :)
Sam kissing Parker. How sweet is that?!

Good Morning Sunshine!

Ok, so my child wakes up with bed head...3 month olds do that all the time!! :) This morning I went to wake up Parker, I turned him on his back in his crib so he can stretch out, and I noticed how crazy his hair looked from sleeping on it all night. Then walks in his daddy. It was almost creepy how much they looked alike. They were staring straight at eachother and I promise if Parker wasn't so little they would look like identical twins!!! Crazy hair and all!!
Tomorrow morning we are leaving for the beach for 7 days with my family! We are so excited and cannot wait to enjoy every minute of our vacation. There will probably be tons of pictures posted after next week.
To be continued until then...
