"Just Because I am Cute..."

I love these two outfits that he is wearing. Well, actually one of them is a dressy outfit that I just put him in on Sunday for the first time. I got it as a gift. He looked sooooo adorable in it! I wish all of you could have seen him in it. The other one is not an outfit it is pajamas. It is a gown I got as a gift also. It is so soft!! It is a little bit big on him, but so sweet! By the way...my camera has a red light on it when I am about to take a picture. So, I can't get Parker to smile when I am by myself because he is so distracted by that darn light!! :)

These are a few of my Favorite things.....

Here is Parker in his bouncy swing. He loves it! We just opened it up a few days ago. We hang it in the doorway to our screened in deck. It is nice and cool in the mornings or early evenings. That is when he gets to hang out in it. I enjoy it too. It is nice feeling the cool air come in. :)

This is a funny picture to me. We have just started getting busier and having to be out longer. So, I have started pumping so that Parker can have a bottle while we are out. You would think that would be easy, right? Yah...it's not. He doesn't care for the bottle too much. In order to get him to take the bottle Derek has had to give him one every night for his last feeding. Sometimes Derek entertains him while he is eating. As you can see Parker enjoys putting his fingers in Derek's mouth. It is so funny!! Anyways, so far it has only been two nights that Derek has given it to him and he is doing sooo much better already! PTL! Derek has so much patience! I am so happy he is my husband and Parker's dad.

Parker fell asleep in the car and we had to get a picture of it because look at his hand! He fell asleep while holding on to his rings!

This is the bib Derek put on Parker while feeding him cereal. Ha ha! First of all, it is a Christmas bib. Second of all it is for a toddler!!!! And of course, Parker didn't mind a bit.

Naked Boy!

Parker has had a rash for the last two weeks and I have tried everything to get it to go away. So, I had to take him to the doctor. The doctor prescribed him some cream and also gave me some advice to help it go away. His advice is to let him go without a diaper on as much as I can. Well, isn't that easy for him to say considering it is not his child who will be naked and possibly(no, not possibly, DEFINITELY) will be going to the bathroom where ever you lay him! These pictures are of Parker on his belly, but in order to really air the rash out he has to lay on his back. Which means pee could land anywhere!! So, if you are wondering why he has towels all around him. That is why!

Oh...and he is definitely all boy. He LOVES hanging out naked. What boy/man doesn't? ha ha! He is sooo cute naked though!

I can sit up!!

Parker can now sit up by himself...kind of. :) I have been working with him everyday on sitting up. He is getting so good at it. I put his hands on the ground so he will support himself and then I let go. He will sit up and if he almost falls he will catch himself with his hands. I can't leave him by himself sitting up quite yet, but I think it will be soon. I am sure he will love sitting up with all his toys around him. :)

Go Braves!

This first picture is for the Mills family. They got him this bib. Parker just had to make a shout out to the Braves while enjoying some cereal. Ha ha! The second picture is of Parker chewing on his monkey. Gotta make those gums feel better!! :)

Update...4 month Appointment

Hey Everyone! I took Parker to the doctor last week for his four month check up. Wow! I cannot believe he is already four months! Anyways, he had to get four shots and one oral vaccine. He did great though. Parker doesn't even care for paci's but the minute I picked him up after he got the shots he was going to town on that paci!! I felt so bad for him!!
Parker has slowed down a bit on gaining weight. He weighed 16lbs 3.5oz and he was 25 1/2 inches long. Derek and I love every bit of that 16lbs!! :) He is so fun right now! He is "talking" and laughing. Derek got him laughing SO hard in the bath yesterday. It is so funny because when he starts laughing hard I want to keep doing the same thing I was doing to make him laugh. But then I get so tickled I can hardly do it again. He can roll over but he mainly does it in his crib at night or during nap time. I am not sure if he fully understands that he can do it during belly time too. He reaches for everything now. I have a feeling that before long he is going to be quicker than we are. He is so sweet!! He is definitely laid back like his dad. He will let you hold him and snuggle with him. Derek and I cannot get over how cute he is. We say it like fifty times a day! He is so good and sleeps a lot. My family called him "picture perfect parker" on vacation because he is so good. ha ha! We are hoping that all of our kids will be as good as him. Oh Yah!! He is teething like crazy! Everything he reaches for goes into his mouth. His hands are in his mouth ALL the time. Well, I know this was long but I needed to let you all know what was happening with our wonderful child!
