Just for Parker

Time is going so fast...too, too fast. I feel like every day Parker does something new to completely astound me. I also feel like there is no time to enjoy it and that my memory is going to fail me. This was supposed to be what this blog was for, but as you can tell from my lack of regular postings, I am not very good at even remembering to post.

So...this post is for Parker and Mommy and Daddy. You are so amazing and we are so blessed to be your parents. Everyday we are awed by how complete you make our lives and how full you make our hearts. You are such a good baby (which I realize probably means that I am in for a doozie on the next one:), and I am so blessed to be your mommy!

Just so I don't forget here is what you are doing right now!!

You can count! Since around 13 months, you have been counting to two. Around 15 months you started counting like this..."one, twoooo, ten!" A month ago, you started counting like this, "one, twoooooo, wheeeee!" This was mainly due to the fact that on three we always said wheeee when we either picked you up or pushed or on the swing (we have since learned to count to three first and then say wheeee:). Saturday, you said, "one, twoooo, three!" Yay Parker!

New Animal Noises! From around 10 months you have been saying different animal noises. Your first was "quack quack" thanks to your yellow duck in the bathtub. Mommy and Daddy quickly learned how entertaining this was and began teaching you lots of others (cow, moo; horse, neigh; sheep, baaa; goat, maaa; goose, honk; bear or lion, roar--I really didn't know how to make them sound different...if he gets them confused when he is older, we'll all know why!) Your newest noises are turkey, gobble and perhaps my favorite; rooster...COCK-A-DOOOO!

Colors! Before you turned one (again, this would have been helpful to post about at the time because now I can't remember an exact date), we started asking you, "what color is this?" The first toy we tried this on was the yellow duck. Soon, you began to answer, "wewwo". Genius baby!!! Haha, actually, stupid parents. We soon realized that you always said yellow anytime we asked you what color something was. Hello Pavlovian dog! Recently, you have been labeling things by color..."boo shoe" "green block." We still get, "yellow" when we ask you what color, but at least I know you know your colors even if I am the idiot that taught you to say yellow.

Bieber Fever! You are an amazing singer:)! You have quite possibly the cutest impression of Justin Bieber I have ever seen. When you sing, "Bebe, bebe, bebe, ooooh" (while using your fist as a microphone) my heart just melts! You know that you can really get us laughing if you play the piano while you sing. Now, you also sing Lady Gaga (I know, I should probably adjust my radio in the morning). You sing, "rah, rah, rah, rah" (bad romance) and move your hands all at the same time. Thank you for always making us laugh; you are truly the best entertainment a mother could ask for.

Prayers! Talking about your prayers melts my heart. From the moment I found out I was pregnant with you, I prayed for the words and actions to teach you to love God. We have always said our prayers before bed and dinner. For the last couple of months, you have begun to be able to say them on your own. With eyes shut and hands folded (and many times during silent prayer time at church), you will say "mommy, daddy, parker, puppy, AMEN!" We go through the whole family at night, but I am just glad that you can remember at least part of the prayer!

I love you so much and am so proud to be your mommy!!

I don't know if you read Rachel's blog - but so many of these are very similar to Finn. He also loved yellow first, has an addiction to Bieber and says the sweetest prayers!
