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!
