Jeff's Fight (Update)

He won his first fight!!! It went almost three rounds. The guy I guess didn't want to come out for the third round. Way to go Jeff!! Hopefully I'll have some pictures from it somewhere I can post. I'm so happy for him! All of the hard work he did finally paid off!!

Jeff's Big Night!

For a while now, Jeff has been extremely interested in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. He watches it religiously, talks about it and now is practicing it. For the past few months, he has been driving to Siloam Springs and practicing twice a week for three hours each time. Even though he loves doing, I hate him being gone for two nights a week. Tonight is his second fight in Branson. The first time he fought was kind of a on the whim kind of thing. This time he has been training and really getting better. I won't be there to watch him since I have work real early and don't want to keep Parker out until the wee hours of the morning. I wish him luck and hope he gets a 1 in his win column! Good luck and we love you Jeff!!

Finally She Sits Up!

Jeff and I have been working extremely hard at getting Parker to sit up on her own. She can finally do it. She can't quite sit up from a lying position but she can sit up by herself when we put her there. It is so fun to watch her sit and play in the floor for forever. Sooner or later she loses balance and tumbles to the floor. I can't wait for her to crawl now! I can't believe how big she is getting. She has been riding in her infant seat while shopping at Wal-Mart and etc but today we decided to try her just sitting in the cart by herself and she did awesome. She was in awe of this new experience. After she figured it out she was extremely happy to not be in that seat anymore!!

Parker Update

I thought I would give a small update on my little Parker. She is 5 months and 3 weeks old today. She will be 6 months old on September 12, the day after my birthday for those who know. She is getting incredibly big. She can roll over to both sides, sit up for about 15 seconds unsupported, pretty much get up on all fours and scoot, and tries really hard to sit up on her own. She is extremely vocal and laughs when she is tickled or if something is really funny. She loves to play in her exersaucer, jumperoo and sit in her bumbo seat. She is also getting better at playing in the floor. I believe she is getting a few teeth in and she is really letting me know about it.

She did have to visit the doctor last week because of a cough and runny nose so she was weighed in at 15 lbs and 12 oz but we weren't able to get her length. I'm sure Jeff and I can do that. I know it will probably be pretty long. She is eating baby food at least three times a day as well as have a formula bottle, juice bottle and cereal bottle in the morning and at night. Some days she will take an 8 oz bottle of formula and others it is only 6 oz. She will eat her whole container of baby food at one sitting. She is doing really well and has tried almost everything except for peas. I was nervous about the green beans but she seemed to love them. The only thing so far we aren't too crazy about is the bananas. She has been sleeping through the whole night but here lately has been waking up in between 3:30 and 4:30. I sure hope we can get her back to her regular sleeping routine. She is doing wonderful and I can't wait to try to sippy cup!
