Hurry - He's Asleep
This seems to be our motto lately - when Parker is asleep, he pretty much stays asleep. The problem occurs when he doesn't want to fall asleep. Correction - he will fall asleep on your shoulder, but try to put him in his Nap Nanny and he's wide awake again. During the day when its just the two of us, there is less of an issue. But when daddy comes home (I assure Benton that it is nothing personal), Parker decides to be a fuss bucket and refuse to sleep. I personally think he's just developed a pretty smart trick for getting some extra time in with dad. Benton's tricks are to take Parker outside on the patio to calm him down and to lay down on the bed with him. Its great to have help after being on my own all day!
Parker also likes to take his evening naps in his vibrating chair - it really is a life saver even though it can induce hiccups and spitups! Parker is still a little big for it, so after sleeping in it a while he tends to scoot down in the seat sideways...
This picture makes me think he was dreaming of Journey and doing legs kicks in honor of his Uncle Skip Winfrey!
Finally, our discovery this week has been mirrors and looking at himself in the mirror. We tried a new tummy mat yesterday and he almost fell asleep staring at himself. He also liked getting hit with the blowdryer on our bathroom counter while looking in the mirror.
