Christmas Pictures

Parker's Christmas pictures

I finally went and had Parker's pictures taken. This one is the only one I have so far. I won't get the others until Friday. I think it turned out quite nice.

9 months

Tomorrow, Parker will be 9 months old. I can hardly believe that time has gone by that fast. I feel like she was just born. She is very much in the fun state right now. Even though she is into everything she is still so much fun. The first of January, she will be going to her 9 month appointment so I will have more information on her height and weight. She is growing constantly so that is a good sign. Some things she has accomplished so far are:

She is eating like a champ. She still has around four bottles a day, baby food as well as "people food". There are so many things that she enjoys to eat. It is neat to watch her try all kinds of things.

She has been a great sleeper the last couple of weeks or so. She is going to bed in between 8 and 9 and sleeping until 7 or 8 am. Those are usually the days she and I are at home, the weekends. Other than that I have to wake her up to go to daycare, :(. She sleeps in her crib but she now can stand in it and pull things off of the wall, yikes! Good thing it is only plush.

Her mobility is great. She can crawl extremely fast, pull up and stand, stand by herself for a second or two, climb a flight of 12 stairs and of course sit up from her stomach. She is doing wonderful developmentally. She can wave bye-bye but only when she feels like it, play pat-a-cake, peekaboo, and many more things. She is saying mama, dada and night night. I am trying to slowly incorporate some sign language as well. We are still working on the sign for mama. Maybe in a month or so we will move on to something else.

She is doing absolutely wonderful and I couldn't be more happier. We are going Thursday to FINALLY have her pictures taken for Christmas. She has a beautiful red Christmas dress all ready to go. We can't wait to go to Conway and DeQueen for Christmas to see all of our families. Here are a few pictures of her playing in the kitchen, eating and etc. Enjoy!!

Giving Thanks

We, well mainly me, were all over the place for Thanksgiving this year. My first year to try and balance going to see all of the families. First, we went to Conway to see Jeff's parents and siblings. We had a great time seeing everyone. Parker loves seeing her grandparents and all of her cousins. She tried a few different foods while she was there and she loved the yams and dressing. She had a little jello too but that was about all we would venture to. I didn't take many pictures while I was there since I forget I have my camera most of the time. I did take two and they were while she was eating. Jeff decided to have a little fun with her hair.

Giving a good pose

After returning from Conway, I got up the next day and drove to DeQueen to have Thanksgiving with my family. Everyone was happy to see Parker and I was happy to get a little break while everyone played with her. They haven't seen her since she has started crawling and sporting two bottom teeth. I was sad to leave but we will be back there for Christmas. I did take a few more pictures of her in DeQueen.

Parker loved playing with Brian's dog, Dixie

Parker's hair is finally long enough to have a barrette in it
