It has been one year, Parker looks like this now:
and I have only written FIVE blog entries.
So now, I am launching a new blog and starting fresh, and I am once again promising to actively post pictures and updates...this time I plan to keep that promise!
Parker is one year and one week old today. She weighs a whopping 19.8 pounds and is 29 inches long. She is the light of our lives. She is such a little entertainer like her daddy. She loves "singing" (even though the only part she sings is E-I-E-I-O), talking (I use this term loosely as she mostly says "dog", "moo", and "outdog"), being outside, playing, and just having fun.
Here are just a few photos of Parker recently.
Playing at swim class with Daddy!
Shopping with her best friends, Hattie and Logan!
Posing for her 1st birthday photo shoot---and looking quite adorable, if I do say so myself!
Did I mention she loves bath time??? Just in case you couldn't tell.
Parker is a talented little gymnast these days.
Our lives have changed dramatically with the addition of Parker, but I wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, I can't imagine life before Parker. That being said, Jon and I still try to have hobbies outside of Parker (when we aren't too exhausted or covered in poop/throw-up/baby food/etc.). Jon loves his new job with Stryker Medical, and Parker even dresses up like Daddy in her own scrubs...I'll have to post pic later. Although Stryker has put Jon's golf game on the back burner, he still finds the time for tournament play. Jon is very excited to throw a crawfish boil next weekend with old friends. Did I mention he order 100 POUNDS of crawfish?!?!?
Jon loves wearing scrubs to work...who wouldn't???
Below: Daddy treating Parker to her first taste of ice cream...Yummy!
I have met a great group of girlfriends, Chelsea and Kimba, who just happen to have babies that are Parker's best friends. Hmm, I wonder how that happened? It is so great to have mommy friends! We enjoy our weekly bible study nights ("studying" comes after the chit-chatting and wine...don't judge!), weekends away, and an unbelievable couples trip to Tahoe together (kid free I might add)! I've also launched a personalization business called "Stitches N Such" and am enjoying my role as a stay at home mom.

Bottoms Up on our Tahoe Trip...I think our husbands were gambling somewhere!
Here is one last photo of Parker's 1st birthday. I promise (and I mean it this time) to post more about her party later.
