Walking Video

Parker is walking!!!

Latest School Picture!

So for the past couple of weeks, Parker has taken a few steps and then falls to his normal fast crawl. This week was different. He has mastered his balance and can walk pretty well although when he is tired he tends to still crawl. I would have to say that out of all the time P has been in our lives the past few months have been some of the greatest. He understands us when we talk to him. If I tell him to go get me a book he will or want to mow the lawn he shakes his head yes. It is truly is incredible. He really isn't a baby any more but turning into a great toddler. The Blue Angels have been flying around the past couple of days and P loves to watch them from the car window on our way home from school. Today is the actual airshow and I guess they fly right over the house. I cannot wait to see the look on his face. Only a couple of weeks until I head to Seattle to visit Andrea and Olivia. Cannot wait:) Hanging around this weekend in the 107 degree heat. I am so ready for fall to get here. I would enjoy a bit of a cool down. Have a great weekend all!

Getting soaked on these hot days!

15 months and almost walking!

Sorry about not blogging in awhile. We have been busy with Budge out of town and headed to the bay area for a wedding. Here are some recent photos. I am going to try and put a video on tomorrow. He is so close to walking. He says "backpack" and enjoys mowing the lawn in the backpack. Mainly this post is about our very dear friends Tim and Tania and their new baby Corey. I was amazed at the jealousy P had when I help Corey. He had to be right at my side. Crazy. Guess no additions for us any time soon. Hope everyone has a great week.

Loves to be read to. Trucks are his favorite thing!

Reading his truck book in his backpack in the living room. Crazy what makes kids happy?!

Having fun with Uncle Chris at the Nut Tree on our way to the Bay Area!

Loves his fire truck now that he knows how to walk.

Turkey hunter in the making. Only hat he will wear.

P meeting his new best friend Corey for the first time.

Labor Day Weekend 2009!

My little guy who really is not that little anymore. 15 months on Thursday! Time flies.

Not much new up here in good old Redding town. On Thursday, Budge left for a fishing trip with the guys, so Parker and I decided to head up to the Lake on Saturday morning to get one last day of summer fun. There is this awesome park right next to the house which Parker is beginning to love. He played for hours in the sand and was content just crawling around everywhere. He is really close to walking and I thinking within the next couple of weeks he will be on the move. We miss Budge but know he is having a great time. Here are some photos from the past couple of days. Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend!

Motorcycle riding already. This kid could live in the garage if we let him.

Once again those feet are crossed. He likes the swing.

Playing in the sand.

Parker watching these two girls wishing he could do that. Turns out one of them is a student in my class. Always nice to have extra entertainment around.

There was another little boy at the lake house on Saturday and he had this very cool dump truck that P loved. It made all sorts of cool noises.

Went for a run with him on the river trail and of course had to stop at the mosaic kid's garden. I love when he stands on those tiptoes.
