23 Months!

Parker Love!

23 months old? How can it be that you're one month away from your second birthday?!

Some stats: you've moved into size 6 diapers... kind of... we've found that if you go poo poo, they tend to leak (icky), so they're obviously a little big. However, size 5's are too small... so you're in some kind of in-between stage with diaper sizes. 

As for clothes, you are now in 24 months and 2T's. Some of the 2T's are still too big, but most of them fit you just fine. 

Well, you've been busy this month! The first big event was Easter, where you had your first Easter egg hunt with your cousins! You did very well and seemed to enjoy yourself. Also, you were super adorable in your little Easter tie. :)

 Go Parker, go! 

Could you BE any cuter? **heart melts**

I was happy to get a few nice shots with you in your Easter attire. 

Also this month... you got an early birthday present: a playground! 

We've been working on making the backyard more "Parker-friendly" and this was the biggest addition to our yard. You also have a new basketball hoop, but we didn't get any pictures of that yet... 

We're happy you like your playground!!

Mommy's next goals for the backyard: Sand table... restore your water table, and maybe a tricycle... 

You recently discovered an "Itsy Bitsy Spider" song on YouTube that makes you giggle! :)

Just some more April cuteness...

We  said goodbye to our red car this month. You ask about it from time to time. Now we have Grandma and Grandpa's "gray car" which is SOOO much better! 

You had your first taste of spaghetti this month. You weren't exactly a fan... but we are pretty sure you just didn't like the texture. You used to make this face with Mac n Cheese, but now you love Mac n Cheese! 

Hangin' in the park with Grammy and Papa!


Actually, you've pretty much transitioned out of your high chair this month. You would much rather sit in one of the "big boy" chairs at the dining table. 

You are suddenly a fan of wearing sunglasses! Such a cool guy! :)

Building towers is one of your favorite things this month. 

Also kind of new this month... you're enjoying playing with cars again. 

Overall, it's been a great month. You are still getting over being sick though. After several days of high fever, we took you into the ER (your first visit) where they determined you have some virus and/ or ear infection. They gave us antibiotics and since then you've been doing better. Still a mild fever, but with the antibiotics/ tylenol/motrin combo you've been back to your old self! 

We love you SO much little man. 

One month from now things will be so so different. Not only will you be TWO YEARS old, but you will also be a big brother! Mommy has an appointment on May 14th to meet baby Joey... although he might just come sooner, all on his own. :) We are very excited for you to be a big brother, though it will be a little sad to say goodbye to our family of three that we've grown so accustomed to. 

We are so thankful that God blessed us with you. You are so smart and fun, with such a kind and obedient heart. You bring so much joy to our lives and we just love you to pieces!! 

We love you, little Bubs! 

Love, Mommy & Daddy
