6 weeks

Parker is 6 weeks old today! I brought him in to meet my students today so I thought he could wear this cute onesie...thanks Dawn!

Likes: making noises, following mommy and daddy with his eyes, playing peekaboo, dad's scratchy beard and mustache when he kisses him, when other people hold him too

Dislikes: being laid down before he's ready for bed, being tired

What's New in the Last Week: he is making more noises than ever, he's able to follow you with his eyes, he is really starting to get those legs a moving, his neck is getting so strong, he occasionally reaches for things, he sleeps for 3-5 hours his first time being put down, and he is smiling so much!

This last week has been so much better in the sleep department! The other night he slept for 5 hours and Clint kept checking on him because he has never slept that long!

5 Weeks

Our happy little boy is 5 weeks old today! We had our one month visit to the doctor today too. He weighs 10 pounds 1 ounce which is about the 45% percentile...so about average. He is 22 and a half inches long which is about the 75% percentile (is it redundant to put the % and say percentile??). His head is 15 inches around which is about the 60% percentile. And he is 100% cute!

Likes: He still loves to see everything when you hold him which makes for a very tiring wrist! He also loves to be in his carrier so he can see what's going on. He likes to nap in his bouncer and swing as well as on his daddy's chest. He also likes playtime.

Dislikes: The last few days he has not liked sleeping in his pack and play or crib! He doesn't enjoy more than 10-15 minutes of tummy time.

What's New in the Last Week: He has been making more noises although they are very few and far between. He has started losing some hair but only on the top. He also has a little bit of a dry head but it's looking better today. He has been playing a lot with his best friend Griffin!

 i was playing with his nose and he was smiling but when I recorded it, he wouldn't smile...but it's still funny!

1 Month Old!

Happy one month birthday Parker Jameson!! Our big boy now weighs 9 pounds 4 ounces! 

4 Weeks

 Parker is 4 weeks old today! Time sure has flown by lately! Luckily I am enjoying every minute of it and taking lots of pictures and videos :)

Likes: Parker still loves when you carry him sitting up and facing out so he can see the world! He also likes bath time, playing on his giraffe mat, reading Jungle Tails, looking in his owl mirror, the lights in our master bathroom, the skylights in our living room, playing with his hair

Dislikes: getting dressed after his bath, being put down after snuggling on your chest

What's New in the Last Week: Parker has made several baby noises other than fussing or crying, he's starting to hold his head up just a bit, he focuses on things a little more than last week, he slept in his crib all night last night, able to be on his tummy for longer time periods, staying awake a little on stroller rides, wearing size 1 diapers, and wearing some clothes that aren't newborn (although some of his newborn clothes are still too big).

The baby carrier I have is really hard to buckle when I'm alone so I found this cool one at Once Upon a Child.  Parker loves hanging out in this one because he can see out of it!

He just loves playing with his hair!

One of my favorite faces!

cute lil feet

Baby butt! His legs are so long and skinny still!
Chatting with grandma, grandpa, and Lindsay on Google hangouts on Mother's Day! We all had to wear disguises!

I am patiently waiting for my Mother's Day gift in the mail...I can't wait for it to get here :)

Obviously it will have Parker's name and birthday on it!

3 Weeks

Parker is 3 weeks old today! Yesterday he weighed 8 and a half pounds! Such a big boy!! He fits nicely in most of his newborn clothes although a few things are still too big.

Likes: when mommy gives him raspberries, being carried sitting up and facing out, napping on your chest late at night (so he doesn't have to sleep in his pack and play), sleeping with hands at his face, bath time, holding fingers

Dislikes: looking at the camera, late night diaper and clothes changes, getting out of the bath

What's New in the Last Week: starting to track a little with his eyes, focuses on things, slept in his crib in his room last night for most of the night, newborn diapers are almost too small, had his first real play date with Griffin today, sitting in my lap while I did this whole post :)

Here are some shots from the last week or so:

Newborn Pictures

Newborn photos have become such a popular thing lately and there are so many adorable pictures floating around the internet these days. However Clint and I had our pictures taken back in the fall and I knew that we wouldn't be buying a lot so we weren't really sure if we wanted to spend a lot to get some nice photos. I found a few photographers that were pretty well priced but I wasn't too impressed with their work and then I also found several photographers who had great work but were pretty pricey. So my mom and I decided to give newborn photos a try. I had a few shots in mind that I wanted so on two different days we took some shots and messed around on Photoshop with them. I am pretty happy with what we got :)

Most of these are hanging in his room mixed in with some of the maternity shots Lindsay and I did. I love the photo wall in his room :)
