Back to Work :(

Mommy had to go back to work this week :( It was  much harder on me than it was on Parker. There was a little bit of adjusting to his sleep schedule and i'm sure it will be a few more weeks before we are all into a good consistent routine. 

This is Parker visiting my classroom and helping get everything set up!

Parker was a big help at the estate sale for Great Grandma Sherry. Many people tried to buy him from us but we told them we were planning on keeping them for a bit ;)

He is such a ham for the camera!

This week Parker got 2 TEETH!! He wasn't very fussy but he does love to chew on those fingers. 

Daddy had his last softball game for the city league team. They lost the first game and were out of the playoffs but still played a complimentary second game where Daddy hit a HOME RUN! We were all very proud of him.

He still refuses to roll over and doesn't crawl yet but he does love to walk like this. His feet are always moving and he loves to see everything at this level. 

Updates may be fewer and far between now that I am back at work but I promise to try and post pictures as often as possible!

5 Months Old!

Parker turned 5 months old last week! He has gotten so good at taking pictures that every picture we took this month looked just like this first one :) He has almost perfected sitting up by himself but once he gets fancy and starts to move around he falls over. It's hard to see but he is actually growing a little bit more hair on his head. This last month he has given us a run for our money when it comes to sleeping. We tried to put him in his crib and he threw back by deciding he didn't want to sleep at all! Our fingers are crossed that will change soon. 

This was night one in the crib. It only lasted 2 hours.

Trying to stay cool in the 100 degree heat!

At a trip to the library Parker wanted to show off his sitting up skills. He loved reading books with Daddy and walking around people watching. 

If there is something in your hands Parker thinks that it should be going in his mouth!

For the last 5 months we have been going to a mom's group at the Salem Hospital. Sadly I have to go back to work next Tuesday so this will be our last week. This is Nurse Barb who has been seeing Parker every other week since he was 3 weeks old.

Summer Trips

I really need to start updating more often because I have so many pictures to show!! We only have 3 weeks left of summer and we are trying to fit everything in that we can! 

Parker and Dad are getting ready and have started the countdown to Ducks football

At Parker's 4 month check-up the doctor said to wait for solid foods until 6 months but we have given him a few taste already :) 

We went on our first camping trip with the Lynch family. There was a great trail right behind our campsite that we took a nice hike on. This was Parkers first time "dry" camping.

With Grandma and Grandpa Lynch

Grandma Tammy came into town again and we went Blueberry picking

We also went to the Portland Zoo while her and the kids were in town. It was Parker's first time at the zoo!

Last weekend we were back at the lake. Grandpa's boat puts Parker right to sleep!

A very intense game of Go Fish

James is a real skiier now! He started ski skimming and spent all weekend trying to get Dad out on the boat. 

They are both also still obsessed with finding lizards and frogs and making homes for them. 

Auntie TeriAnn got us started playing the Wheels on The Bus and it is now Parker's new favorite song!

4 Months!

It took me a whole month to get some pictures up again! Parker turned four months old on Sunday. Just the day before that he rolled over from his tummy to his back for the first time! Andy and I were both sitting close to him and he did it so fast that we didn't even see it! He loves to stand up, smile, and talk to anyone who will listen. We think some of his hair is starting to grow back along with every other part of his body that is growing! He weighs 15 1/2 pounds (the same amount as his cousin Karly who is 3 months older!!)

Lots of pictures from the last month!

Visiting Grandma Tammy and the kids at Wild Life Saffarii

At the lake for the 4th of July, Karly was a part of the buffet :)

Meeting Great-Grandma and Great Grandpa Wallace for the first time

He did like the lake he just didn't like the sun in his eyes 

Fireworks on the 4th!

Meeting sweet baby Reagan for the first time! She is so little!

Rolling over for the second time!!

3 Months old!

Last week Parker turned three months old!! He enjoys time on his playmat and listening to music or mommy and daddy signing. He smiles almost any time that you smile with him and just in the last few days has figured out how to stick his tongue out at you. He loves to take naps while somebody is holding him and loves to watch Daddy play softball!

Today was his 100th day of life! 

Last Sunday celebrating Father's Day with the best Daddy! 

Dad's favorite drink at Red Robin is a root beer float!

Playing a card game with Grandma Anita :)
