15 months

Parker is changing so much from month to month. He is "talking" alot. Poopa just noticed the other night that Parker was talking more than usual and this is so true. He favorite words right now are...

- Bebe (Pampers commercials, pics of himself and when we are out and about)
- Dog, but now he follows up with a "roof, roof" he is barking :)
- Mine
- More (he also signs more, put he point to his empty hand and then says MORE)

What I am most amazed about right now is that he understands and follows directions. I know this is short lived as he will soon learn he can say "NO", but for now we are enjoying this time. We will ask him to get a book and he will pick one out and bring it to us. I even asked him to wipe up milk that he spilled in the kitchen and he went right over and wiped it up! Yeah, Ray was amazed by that one!! :) I love that he is learning what we are teaching him and that is so interactive.

He is such a flirt and loves to be the center of attention... I don't know where he gets those traits from!?!?

Valentine's Day - 2nd year

Parker wearing his new Valentine's shirt that reads "Most Eligible Bachelor"! 
He is also sporting his favorite penguin hat.

A friend from work made graham cracker houses for the kids to decorate! She supplied us with everything and we just had to do the decorating. It was fun to see Parker react to the different textures and flavors. If you remember he wouldn't touch his birthday cake so I wasn't sure, now that he is eating regular food, what he would do. As you can see he did a great job! :)

Bath Time! Our nightly routine...

I don't often take my camera in the bathroom for fear it will be water logged from all of the splashing! I am so happy I did this particular night because Parker was being a ham. I love the pics of him looking at himself. I always say, "Where's Parker?" and he swims to the front of the tub to peer at himself. He knows who's cute! :)

He loves the water! He is going to have so much fun this summer at the pool. Right now he uses the tub has his swimming hole!

Winter Stomach Flu

We have been pretty lucky that Parker really hasn't been sick, like with a stomach bug, just ear infections. Well, we couldn't dodge that bullet for long. He came home from school on a Friday and just wasn't acting himself. I saw the look in his eyes and knew he was going to get sick. I snatched him out of his highchair and got him to the kitchen sink just in time!! He up chucked dinner, his milk and I think some afternoon snack! Well, that kept happening well into the evening. He looked at me with his sad eyes saying "Mommy make it stop!" We had a bucket and towels and all the fun stuff. It took the weekend to recover but he did. Then the next week anyone who came in contact with him got the bug too! We had some visitors are you can see in the pics and they fell victim as well. We all said it was worth it to love on that little cutie!

Parker's 14 month collage :)

I was disappointed in myself for not taking more pics in January with my real camera. I used my iPad to take these pics above but you can see they are a little grainy. Even with them being grainy he is still cute! :) He was 14 months in mid January. I am getting ready for his 15 months pics! :)

Parker & His Car Video

Parker is 14 months old here and we are playing with a car! He is so animated and fun to watch. Hope you enjoy!
