4 months

Our precious Parker is 4 months old!  I can't believe how much he grows and changes each day.  These days I find my face hurting from smiling so much at him all day trying to get one of his adorable grins or giggles.  The other day Parker and I had the giggles in the car.  The more I would laugh he would just join right in.. it was pretty much the best car ride of my life. :)

I love seeing Rich as a dad.  He is so loving and fun.  I've heard him sing songs I had no idea he knew and use voices and faces only reserved for his little guy.  It melts my heart.  Parker loves his dad too as you can see below!   

Parker also loves to be outside, go for walks, stand up, play with his toys (put toys in his mouth), and try to grab his feet.  He doesn't like his car seat, being held in the wrong position or taking naps. He's such a wiggly little guy and so curious about the world.  He doesn't want to miss anything. :) At his 4 month appointment he weighed 14.2 lbs (around 30th percentile) and was 25 inches long (about 70th percentile).  Good job growing sweet boy!
So that's the update on our favorite little man.  I decided to copy my cousin Jackie with these monthly updates because I love reading Arden's updates so much.  Thanks Jack!  I'm still trying to figure out the best way to organize my record keeping.  Right now I have pictures on facebook, instagram, this blog, journal entries in my journal, iphone and on Parker's 1st year calendar.  It feels very unorganized which I'm not a fan of at all.  So until I figure out a way to get everything in one place I'll just keep taking about 50 pictures of Parker a day!  Okay, that's all, bye. xo
