19 Weeks

Mr. Smiley Pants is 19 weeks old today!

Likes: chewing on his hands, playing with his feet, grabbing toys and momma's lips

Dislikes: naptime (well, just today anyways)

What's New in the Last Week: he can put his feet in his mouth (yummy), switch toys from one hand to the other, and he has started to reach out for you me to hold him ;)

Not as many pictures this week...ironically lots of napping Parker on a day that he just won't nap!

so cozy

nice bed head

Parker was the banker at the garage sale.

night night

stretch those leggies!

had too much fun on Saturday

My little baby bear ♥
my little cookie monster
Clearly Mr. Parker likes to kick! Feeding a kicking baby is quite hard.

He learned that he could stop the fan with his foot. 

18 Weeks

Well this picture didn't turn out very well. Boo!

Parker had his 4 month appointment today. He measured 26 inches long (88th percentile), and weighed 14 lbs 14 oz (33rd percentile) which I think is wrong because yesterday at the breastfeeding group he was 15.5 and the week prior he was 15.3 but whatever...he's happy and healthy!) I just cannot believe that he has grown 5 inches since he was born! Crazy!

Likes: his crinkle book, playing with his feet, chewing on his hands, standing, flopping or melting out of your arms 

Dislikes: shots! 

What's New in the Last Week: He's getting so close to rolling over onto his belly! He is finally playing with toys a little while laying on his belly, especially if he is laying over the boppy pillow. 

Poor little man had his shots again today...he was smiling the biggest smile right before she did the first one. Then right before she did the second one he just lost it. He didn't cry for very long afterwards and I also fed him which helped last time too. Hopefully he doesn't have any side effects...he didn't last time other than being a little extra sleepy. He's napping in my lap as I type :)

This is right now :) His little X-Men bandaids!

More shots from this week:

 We love our morning snuggles...and one day he had his pouty lip out. So sad but cute.

 A couple funny ones of Parker and the middle one is an exact copy of how Clint wears his socks! He is definitely his son :)
 We went for a walk at the park and he got to ride in his stroller like a big boy! Then Hilary came down and we went to Pizza King!! 

 I took Zoe and Parker on a walk the other day...my first time walking Zoe and using the stroller! It was pretty easy too! 

He just loves to chew on his crinkle book! I love these star pajamas!

 I got a new carrier the other day...I love it! It's cute and I can put it on by myself. My other nice one has a strap on the back at about my shoulder blades that I have a really hard time snapping. I like to have options anyways :)

Clint went to Michigan last weekend with his friends and Parker gave him snuggles before leaving. I love these pics!

Photo Shoot Outtakes

I love taking pictures of Parker! He is usually really smiley for the camera...as if you haven't noticed :) However when trying to take pictures for his 4 month post, he was being a little stinker! It may have been because I dropped his hairbrush on his nose right before :( I was just trying to tame his wet fuzzy wild hair!!

Check out these hilarious shots!

I wish I would have recorded him because he was being so ridiculous! I have no idea where he gets his dramatics?? :) Love him!!

4 Months Old

Parker is 4 months old today! 

Big Milestones: Parker can grab his feet and roll to his sides when he is on his back. We are looking forward to him rolling over from his back soon! He can also sit pretty well when you hold onto his sides. He has pretty good neck control so no more bobble head!

Measurements: Parker is 25 inches long and weighs 15 pounds 3 ounces. He is wearing 3-6 month clothes. 

Daily Schedule: Parker usually wakes up around 6:30 to eat. Sometimes he goes right back to sleep but if he wakes up after 7 then he likes to stay up for another half hour or so. He is now staying awake for about 3 hours at a time as well as going about 2 and a half to 3 hours between feedings. He naps for about a half an hour around 10 am, 1 pm, and 5 pm. We start his bedtime routine around 7-7:30. We usually lay him down for bed about 8ish and he likes to kick and play for about 10 minutes until he wears himself out. He is doing really well with putting himself to sleep (although sometimes we help put his pacifier back in). He is such a great sleeper! He usually sleeps from 8:30 pm -6:30 am although there are days he doesn't go to sleep til after 9 and some days he wakes up at 5. 

We go to the doctor next week for his 4 month check up and his shots. Hopefully he does as well this time as he did last time! He is just growing up so fast!

Clint went to Michigan with a few of his friends for the weekend so Parker gave daddy a big hug before leaving!! I love his cute little face <3

17 Weeks

Last week I had to start using a different blanket to lay him on because he was getting too long! But the blanket I used last week & this week has a Colts design on the other side and this week you can kind of see it...off to find a new white blanket!

Likes:  grabbing his feet all day long, grabbing everything (especially at my face), putting things in his mouth, watching Lucy, smiling at you when you lay him in his bed

Dislikes: Zoe barking when he's sleepy

What's New in the Last Week: he gained some weight (15 lb. 1 oz), pulls himself up pretty well from laying down when you hold his hands, going to bed pretty consistently in the 8 o'clock hour

We love to send daddy pictures in the morning!

a little short for the jumper!
I found my feet!!

Look Zoe! Look what I found!

Snuggled up 
He sure makes it hard to change his diaper now!

Lookout Baywatch!

Better go save someone!

There are no toys on this Target receipt!

I love my new Pooh book!

Zonked out in the stroller at Jennifer's!

We had so much fun at the Fair!

So fresh & so clean!
