Taking a picture for the birth announcement!

Well anyone who knows Lisa knows she is a bit of a perfectionist and this trait did not diminish when it was time to take a picture for Parker's birth announcement. So Mommy set up the Boppy pillow and covered it in a blanket then put him in it. Then the tough part came! Trying to get that perfect picture! Here are some of the pictures and I'll try to scan the birth announcement in and add later!

Parker loves his paintings


video


Here's another video of parker. One thing we've found is that he loves to stare at the paintings on the wall above his changing table. He'll be fussy & none to happy when we set him down to change his diaper, but once he sees those paintings he becomes a happy little man. -JN-

Parker's First Real Bath

video


















Well, here's Parker's first real bath. He wasn't quite sure what to think about it, come to think of it, I don't think he really enjoyed it at all. His crying concerned Maya (the dog), so she whined the whole time. We pretty much had a kitchen full of whiners & criers. Oh the memories!

Kelsey brought Hailey and Audrey for a visit

Aunt Kelsey brought Audrey and Hailey for a visit on Monday. Hailey loves to see her cousin Parker and she loves to hold him and take care of him. This time she had to share because little Audrey was fascinated with the baby and wanted to hold him too! Justin is also discovering that his basement has gone from the "man cave" to the children's play area. It is a good place for the little kids to run around and play games as well as watch movies. Poor Justin...say good bye to the man cave forever! (but he really enjoys the kids playing in the basement!)

What is Jacob doing?

On Sunday Uncle Ben, Aunt Jonnette and Jacob came to visit and meet Parker. We had a good time together. Jacob wasn't too sure about his Mommy holding a baby and he wanted in her lap! Little does he know he'll soon have a little baby brother or sister and he'll have to share Mommy's lap!

Jacob provided some assistance to Uncle Justin and Aunt Lisa by showing how many things need to be child-proofed in the house! Thank you Jacob!

Parker and Mommy were very tired on Halloween! They went to sleep before the trick-or-treaters started arriving, leaving Daddy and Maya to pass out candy on their own!

Happy Halloween!

Parker's Adventures

Well, here's a few more pictures of our little bundle of joy. We find ourselves so buys with feedings, diaper changes, and sleeping, that we forget to take more pictures of him. This parenting business is tough work! But oh, so worth it. Until we post again. -JN-

The Pregnant Picture

Here is the picture that has been requested by many! Finally a pregnancy picture has been posted so you can all quit bugging me now!

This is me at 39 weeks and 1 day.

We are 6 days away from the due date of October 21, 2008.

Do you think he'll be early, on time or late?

I keep telling him early is on time...on time is late!

We'll see how well he listens!

My mom, sister Jonnette and best friend Della threw a very nice baby shower for me at Gepetto's Pizza in Montesano. It was really nice to be able to see friends and family and we were given a lot of really great things for the baby. We are now all set up for the baby and just awaiting his arrival!
