Happy Two Months Parker

Today is your two month birthday.
I love your sweet smile. It melts my heart.
You like to stretch out and kick your legs.
You have lots of other nicknames Park, Parkie, Little Man, Baby doll, Mister, Mister Man.
Weekly weigh in.
Right around 15 1/2 pounds.
Look at you hold up your head. You love this turtle and try to talk back to him. He makes some funny baby noises. This was one of your brothers favorite toys too.

Parker you are two months old. You have been quite busy over the past month. You have been on lots of outings and like to be on the go. When you are all snuggled in your carseat you sleep most of the time we are gone. You like movement and enjoy riding in the car and stroller. When we stay home all day you are awake so much more unless I can sit and hold you the whole time. You are now wearing size 2 diapers and they fit so much better. You weigh right around 15 1/2 pounds on our scale at home. It is hard to get an exact measurement because you move so much and it bounces. You are wearing 3-6 month sleepers and 3-6, 6, and some 9 months outfits. Some things seem to run smaller and they are outfits that your big brothers wore too. You are doing better at night and your longest stretch of sleep is always the first. There are a few nights where you have slept for 5 hours at a time but usually it is between 3 1/2 to 4. I don't mind though because you go right back to sleep which is great. You are sleeping in the pack n play in our room but still sleep the best in the bouncy seat. You are really watching Mommy and look at me the whole time you are sitting in your seat. When I leave the room you start to fuss or move your arms. I can always tell when you are getting ready to cry because your arms start moving like crazy. Baylor and Cooper like to sing to you and Baylor is really good at giving you your deedee when it falls out of your mouth. You have also started to suck on your fist. You are making more and more noises and like to coo at us. You are smiling more and more and have many ticklish spots. When you are smiling you like to talk to me. You are getting really good at holding your head up and are doing great with tummy time. You don't last very long on your tummy before you fuss but you show me how strong you are. When you are fussy you like me to sing to you and rock you in the chair. I love to hold you close and cuddle with you. We take a nap together in the afternoon and it is one of my favorite times of the day. Parker you are growing and changing everyday and we are loving watching you. You are such a special gift! We Love You Parker Thomas Hurst!

GREAT pictures, Jessie! I love Parker's smile! His two month birthday is the same as my birthday! I am only 17 years old, though! wink, wink!!! Hopefully you didn't get the big snows that came to us in the last 24 hours... A foot of heavy, wet snow greeted me as I drove to school for an inservice day! Can you hear Siesta Key calling us???? I do!
