Well, the time has come... no more onesies! I am sad :( This small not important fact signals to me that Parker is no longer a baby. I obviously know and understand this but it still doesn't make it any easier to pass on these cute little one onesies that we (I) love so much! :) This post is mostly for me to come to terms with this change & documents how cute & small Parker was at this point in time.

Aren't they cute?!?! Parker loves to read before bed. "Little Blue Truck" is read every night along with a few other favorites.
Ray and I have been together for about 15 years and married for going on 10 years! Just typing that makes me feel old!! He has worked at Best Buy for 14 years so retail hours have always been a part of our lives. He has worked in many different departments requiring very different hours. Working late nights and weekends is what we know.
When Parker was born Ray was able to adjust his schedule so that he could take care of Parker when I went back to work. We made this work until Parker was about 8 months old. We were very lucky to have him home for 8 months before starting daycare.
Through all of this it's been hard for Ray not to be with Parker (and of course his awesome wife) in the evenings and on the weekends. Well, all of that has recently changed. The stars have aligned, Ray is still with Best Buy, and he is now working in a new position. What does this mean? It means that he is working Monday through Friday day time hours!!! I am beyond excited and proud of him for landing this position! He started this week and I can already see a difference in Ray & Parker!
I might need to seek counseling since I will actually see my husband on a regular basis! ;) We can now make plans for the weekends or even evenings. A real date night that does't need at least 2 week notice to plan!?! This is a game changer and I am so looking forward to positive outcomes!!
Congrats Ray (AKA Daddy)! We are so proud of you!!
