Half Birthday

Parker was six months old as of Saturday. We spent the weekend in Wichita Falls and got in some good grandparent time and took 6 month pictures with DeEdra.

Parker's latest tricks are slapping people's hands away like a little boxer and sucking his bottom lip. He's also close to crawling - he gets up on his knees and rocks back and forth. Then he gets fussy and frustrated until someone sits him back up in sitting position.

He's still sleeping great - down by 6:30pm and up around 7am. Daytime naps are really 30 minute cat naps, but at least he wakes up in a better mood.

We're quickly outgrowing size 3 diapers and 9-month outfits. For now, Parker is pretty skinny through the waist, but thick in the thighs (wonder where he gets that from!).

He loves to be outside in his big new backyard. We can easily kill an hour in the evening hanging out on a quilt in the back.

We go for our checkup on Friday - so check bak to see if we've hit the 20lb mark or not! We'll also get the go ahead to start introducing food, so we should have some messy pictures to share.

Here is a picture by Parker's babysitter, Elizabeth, from last week. She put him in his swing with his bottle while she got situated to feed him in his chair. He was too hungry to wait and decided to hold the bottle and feed himself the whole thing!
