Parker's 9 Month Check-Up

Friday was Parker's 9 month birthday- he spent it with Aunt April at the park- they had lots of fun together! Today we went to his 9 month check-up at the doctor- Parker weighs in at 19 lbs 9.5 oz and he is 28 inches long. Everything was good!! Our doctor thinks she heard him say "Ellen" (her name)...she e-mailed Grandma Robbie to tell her that Parker said this! :) Parker also got to see Aunt Ci Ci (Cindy) at the doctor's office. She was working when we went in for his check-up...he showed off for her and she told us, once again, that Parker needs to get involved in modeling...ha ha! He is the cutest boy ever!

Thunderstorms and an Exciting Day Ahead

We had a rough morning...Bella up at 3:30 am with the thunderstorms and Parker up at 5:00 am and ready to play!! I think Parker was excited because today starts his "summer" with his Aunt Dani watching him for 8 weeks! He love his aunts and uncles...and he can't wait to go to the pool with Aunt Dani! Don't worry- she'll be equipped with the camera!! :)

Parker had a great time at his cousin Cameron's first birthday party.

Brooke Graduating with her MBA

Technically, Brooke completed her MBA last summer, but the official graduation ceremony for her graduating class wasn't until this spring. She finished it in less than 2 years and got done just before Parker was born. Here she is walking across the stage, she got hugs from just about everybody up there, what a celebrity!

A few movies

Here are a few movies that I finally got off the camera.  They are on our youtube page as well.

This one is Parker, Bella, and Brooke playing in his new swimming pool.  This is while we were camping at Council Grove Reservoir.

This is of his great aunt Carol giving him his first haircut.  It was getting really long, and hung down past his eyes when he was getting a bath!

Good Morning!

Parker slept in this morning- until 5:45 am!! We were happy to get a full 8 hours of sleep!! I just wanted to update everyone on Parker's accomplishments in the past month- he started crawling a little over a month ago, he can pull himself up to a standing position and he can sit back down (this is a hard skill to learn), he got his first haircut- and it looks very good, he went swimming in his new pool...he went camping for the first time, he is getting four teeth (ouch!), and he almost has a wave (bye-bye) down- he did that this morning when I left for work!! Can you tell that we love every milestone...even though part of me wishes he was still a little baby!

Our First Blog

I woke up this morning and decided to start a blog about our family...I'm not sure why I didn't start it earlier!! We are doing great! Parker is now almost 9 months old and he is the perfect baby! He is crawling, eating "people" food, just a happy boy!! He loves his mommy and daddy and his puppy dog, Bella. He loves hanging out with his grandmas and grandpas, his cousins, and his aunts and uncles. He gets excited when we go outside, watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, eat, give him a bath, play in his pool, etc. He is so much fun!! We are looking forward to a great summer!!!
