I know everyone enjoys seeing the pictures that we post of our adorable baby boy...well, not really a baby anymore :( ...our toddler!! I thought an update of what's been going on might be fun to post! Parker had his first birthday on September 20th- it was a warm September day and we had a lot of fun. He loves all of his new toys and enjoys his new toy room down in the basement (our family room). Parker is a pretty good walker now and is learning how to answer questions...the only problem is that he answers "yes" to everything..."Parker, do you want to take a nap"...."yes!" He will also shake his head no, but I can't tell if he's being silly or really saying no. :) He is a Momma's boy and is going through seperation anxiety...it's his way of letting me know that he loves me! Parker has learned to throw the ball for Bella and this is what she has been waiting for! It is fun to watch them play...Bella is not so moody now and she even lets the neighbor kids/dogs play with her!

We are looking forward to fall- my birthday is right around the corner and our 4th anniversary. No big plans in the near future...just the usual. Work is going good for Brandon and I- we have a busy month ahead of us, but have fun doing it. We are looking forward to the holidays with Parker!

Toward facing big boy!

Parker looked like he'd never been in the Honda when we put him in
forward facing for the first time. Now he's watching Mickey Mouse
while he rides in style.

Parker's first birthday!

Parker's party was a success! More pictures and video coming soon.

Parker is walking!!!

Parker started wobling out some steps a couple of weeks ago, but in the last few days he's really started moving around and doing it on his own, no coaxing needed! Don't know if this is good or bad, but likes walking around in his new shoes!

On Saturday we went to Camp Mt. Hermon and dedicated a peace pole in honor and in memory of grandma Catherine "Katie" Strahm.
