9 Months - First Christmas

It sure was fun seeing how Parker would react to our Christmas traditions.

I brought him to see Santa on the Tuesday before Christmas. The line to see Santa was long, but he just jabbered the whole time. Upon getting to Santa I put him on Santa's lap. I wasn't surprised when he handled himself well. I was however surprised that he didn't try to pull Santa's beard or hair. I told Santa he wanted his two front teeth for Christmas.

See Santa I need my other tooth

Christmas Eve Parker broke two teeth. So now he has a total of 5 teeth. He is learning to use his little chompers. I just wish he would reserve it for food and not my neck, arm, knee, etc.

On Christmas morning Santa brought just what Parker wanted....

PAPER, BOXES, & . . . window washer fluid.

There were a few gifts that said Parker's name on them. He for the most part didn't want anything to do with them.

My Christmas tree if finally up!!!

Follow this link for a wonderful Christmas video:


I'm ashamed to say I worried about the tree before the nativity set.

I'm far from perfect and needed this reminder.

May you find CHRIST in Christmas this year.

Parker's Stair Adventure

Our lives just got a little more exciting. . .

Parker can now climb stairs Its funny how they sneak up on you and learn these things. Lucky both Troy and I saw him "practicing" at the same time. Troy from the bottom of the stairs, and me from the top. We were both able to run and help him finish getting to the top of the stairs, and then coach him back down. He was pretty tired by the time he got to the top, but he did pretty good for his first time. I have to say its fun to see him learn new things. I wish they would tell us when they about to try something so we could watch them and make sure they don't get TOO hurt.

OK OK OK maybe we should invest in a child gate or two.
