I can't wait to show these to his girlfriend

I just had to do it! He looks so dang cute as a little flower and bunny.
I know Parker loved his little photo shoot. Anne Geddes watch out.

My favorite sound

Grant has a special talent for getting Parker to laugh. Well, he makes me laugh too. He is such a fun- loving dad and husband. We love him! Grant went back to work on Tuesday and sure misses being at home with Parker. I had spring break this week and loved every moment of it. Unfortunately, the weather was icky. It snowed almost every morning and hailed and rained almost every afternoon. Crazy March. Hopefully we see some sunshine soon.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! I love holidays! Isn't our little bunny so cute? I have a pink flower head band too that I want to take pictures of him in... a little Anne Geddes shot. Not sure if Grant will go for that. We have Easter plans with my mom at her house on Saturday and with our sister n' law Wendy's parents, Sally and Terry, on Sunday. That will be a fun packed house with the whole family. We are having so much fun with Parker. I am looking forward to my spring break next week. I wish Grant had the week off too. He's been off work for the past 6 weeks using all vacation and sick leave, so it might be awhile till we have a day off together. Parker and I will go downtown for lunch with him a couple of days. I plan on relaxing a little and getting a pedicure and manicure, and visiting with family and friends. I also have plans to clean out our closets of all of our big clothes. I want to have a garage sale sometime instead of giving all these nice clothes away. We have such a range of sizes. Grant lost 120 pounds and I lost 70. I still have a long way to go. Kind of frustrating to not find anything that fits you in your closet, but I love shopping and I love wearing smaller clothes! I'm not complaining. Our favorite easter treat we found has been a sugar free marshmellow bunny. Hard to find, but yummy!

Bouncing Parker laughs

Grant can really get Parker laughing. It is so cute. Unfortunately, you'll have to cock your head to the side to view it. I should have held the camera the other way. We are looking in to buying a video camera. Would love to capture more moments like these.

Karin's Visit

We were so happy to have Karin come for a visit. I just love this picture of the 3 of us. Parker loved her red hair. He seemed unsure of it at first and then warmed up to her.

Parker loves his Guatemalan outfit my mom bought him. :) She is Costa Rica right now. Hopefully, we didn't encourage her to shop for crazy outfits. This was so bright he had to wear shades.

Parker is one of his many space sleepers.

Parker 4 months

I've been back to work for a month now. Grant has been off and taking care of Parker. He would love to be a stay at home dad. Having lots of fun. After next week, Grant is back at work and then I have my spring break. I'm totally ready for it. Have a difficult class this year and just want to be home with my sweet baby.

We went to the Dr. yesterday. Parker weighed 16 pounds 6 ounces and is in the 75th percentile. He is 27.5 inches long and off the charts. He's grown 5 inches in just 4 months. Big boy. He rolled over for the first time right at the Dr.'s office. He rolled right off the table into my arms. It scared him and he cried. His shots made him cry even more. Poor guy.

Karin came for a visit. It was so great to have her here. We didn't do a lot, but it was just nice to be able to visit and have her meet Parker. I'm hoping to take a road trip to California and Utah this summer. Grant is using all his time off now, so we'll see if he gets to join us for much of it. I want more of my friends and family to meet Parker.
