Happy 6 months Parker!

What a special day! Today Parker, you have turned 6 months old and experienced your first big snow of the year! Mommy and daddy can't believe it's been half a year since you were born! You are SO much fun and I'm not sure what we're going to do if you get any cuter! You have learned to roll over both ways and I catch you sleeping on your tummy all the time now! You love to pull your knees up under you and sleep with your little bottom in the air. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen!
This week we go see Dr. Fletcher for your 6 month check up and I bet we get to start rice cereal. You are still a pro at nursing, so we will see how this cereal thing goes. I like how easy and mess free nursing is, I know you must start solids at some point though!
Still no teeth, you are almost sitting up by yourself and you are very into pulling and grabbing everything. Hair, glasses, earrings...nothing is safe around you now! :) You love to hear you voice and it has gotten so much louder; you are perfecting your grunting, squealing and laughing. Mommy had a very sad moment this month when we were decorating for Christmas and we decided to move your swing into the attic. I almost cried when daddy took it apart because I thought about how fast you're growing up! It just seems like you were a little newborn in that swing sleeping all the time!
Parker, we love more every single day and you bring so much joy to our lives! We are looking forward to your very first Christmas with you!

Can Anyone Else Do This?

Parker has had the lovely talent of sucking on his big toe for several weeks now, but I finally caught it on camera. It cracks me up everytime! Today I had him on our bed while I was sorting laundry and when I looked over, this is what I found. The best is when he makes this loud sucking sound like he's never tasted anything so good! :)


You caught me mom!

I couldn't leave this pic out...this is how I found him yesterday evening.
Playing in the bouncer is exhausting!

What we've been up to

It's hard for me to believe that November is in full swing and that I can start pulling out my Christmas decorations in just a few short weeks, I can't wait!! I LOVE Christmas time and everything about it!
Parker has been busy so far this month, learning how to roll over and now doing it all the time! He loves to play on his tummy and he's even trying to pull his knees up under him. My world will be changing soon when Parker starts crawling! :)
Today he had his second haircut, yes you read that right, haircut #2 and he's five months old! He did such a great job this time holding still. He sat like a big boy in his Bumbo chair and let Junior work his magic on his hair. Not one tear or even a fuss, I was so proud of him! Here are some pics of our little man...

Getting haircut #2 and being SO good!

What are you doing back there?

He kept wanting to look in the mirror.

I think I'll just chew on this towel until he is finished!

All finished and so handsome, both of them! :)

I couldn't resist this shot, his little monkey rear end was too cute! :)

Playing hard on his tummy!

Look mom, I can roll over!

He LOVES his bouncer!

Fun with Waco in the backyard. Waco likes to sniff Parker!
