How cute is this of the little brothers before we went to go get Baylor at school!
Here we are at church after setting up for a graduation.
Playing together this morning.

Proof that Cooper need to go to driving school. To say he misjudges the size of his vehicle is and understatement. His big brother is really trying to help him out.
Baylor wanted to give Park a ride but I said he was way to small. I did let him sit for a second, I was holding on to his leg with my other hand.
Coop loves to swing.
Driving pro.
Baylor took several pictures of Parker and me and this was his best shot.

We spent the afternoon riding outside. Baylor and Cooper are thrilled to have the Gator and Tractor back. It was a very nice afternoon and we spent time outside before nap. It was a little breezy for Parker but we made it work so the big brothers could enjoy the day. They love to be outside!

Back in Business

Don't they look happy!
Riding together.
Looking Good!
Parker went with me to Bible study to learn about Psalms. He is going to share all he learned with his brothers!
Baylor has been in love with his John Deere tractor since he got it from Mimi and Pop for his second birthday. He was an instant driving master and rode that tractor for what seemed like hours. When he mastered potty training Mimi and Pop bought him the Gator and he has loved it too. They are one of our favorite outdoor toys. Well early last summer the tractor quit working and the Gator would only go forward. Let's just say Baylor was very sad. Good ole Mimi, Baylor's name for his pal, promised that she would get them fixed first thing this spring. Well you know Mimi she would never let down her pal and she got them both fixed and picked them up today. When Baylor say them at home he was giddy and giggling with excitement. He couldn't wait to get on them. I must say they are like brand new and have quit the pick up to them. It is sad to think how big Baylor looks on the tractor and how little he looked when he first got it for his birthday. Cooper is quite happy too and either rides with Baylor in the Gator or takes them on a crash course. He really needs some driving lessons! Tonight the boys played outside with Daddy until dark and rode all over the yard. I know they are going to have many fun times this summer on the John Deere ride ons.

3, 2, 1

The recliner is a great launch pad. He sure knows how to pack a shuttle, makes me think of the show hoarders.

He has such a great imagination.

Two cute space travelers.

He's the commander and he sure does know how to boss his assistant around.

After all this space travel we were worn out so we had movie night with popcorn. We watched

Chicken Little which has a great combo of aliens and baseball fun.

Parker was worn out just hearing about all this space travel. Happy 19 weeks sweet baby boy.
I was looking through Baylor and Cooper's baby books and at their 4 month doctor stats. At Baylor's 4 month appointment he weighed 19.2 and was 27 in. Cooper at his 4 month appointment weighed 19 and was 27 in. Parker weighed 19.4 and was 26 1/2 in. It is so amazing that they are all so close!

We have been on several space missions in the past few days. Who knew a shopping cart could easily be turned into a space shuttle the zooms up and down the hallway. The boys are space rangers and love to countdown and take off. They have been having so much fun. Cooper pushes his stroller which may be a mini shuttle. They are so funny!

Baylor's Second Game

Daddy had to work late tonight and was not able to go to Baylor's game. Baylor was a little nervous to not have Daddy at the game but he did great. Mimi came and watched Parker and Cooper and Pop and I went to cheer on our favorite Dodger player. Baylor got two good hits and did a great job. He was pitcher's helper too.

Parker's 4 Month Well Visit

What a happy baby.
He loves to get his toes.
Hanging out on the scale.
He was happy his doctor visit was over.
He told his big brothers about his shots.
Parker is jumping for joy that he is 4 months old!

This morning I took Mr. Parker for his 4 month well visit. I can't believe he is already four months old! He was such a happy baby and was showing off all his tricks for the nurse and Dr. Greenfield. He was smiling and talking and even giggling when she was checking him out. He showed the doctor how strong he is and how he can hold up his head and push up. She did say he should be sleeping 8 hours and I should let him cry it out! I am not sure I can do it. I hate to have him so upset when I know if I picked him up he would be fine. Parker weighed 19 pounds 4 ounces and is in the 97 percentile in weight. He was 26 1/2 inches and is in the 95 percentile in height. His head is 43 centimeters is in the 75 percentile for head circumference. She said we could start cereal at 5 months and we go back when he is 6 months old. He did have to get three shots and was not a happy camper but he was smiling again within a few minutes. We are so thankful for a great appointment.

Weekend Tidbits

Daddy was quite busy while we were gone. He put all of Parker's big toys together. Can you tell Parker loves his jumper? Just like his big brothers.
He sat at the table like a big boy with us in his high chair.
My orange buddies.
Cooper loves his Daddy.
Baylor was so excited to see Sarah.
Today we celebrated Aunt Von's birthday with our family at Buca. Everything was delicious!
Daddy cleaned up the swing set area and put down mulch. It looks great and it less muddy. He also cleaned the garage and it looks great.
Pop visited Uncle Joe last weekend to see his opera. They went to the Air and Space Museum in DC and bought the boys these space suits. They were so excited!
Parker is loving all of his toys.

After getting home late the night before Baylor had to wake up early for pictures and his first baseball game of the season. He actually missed opening day because of vacation but he was excited and a little nervous for Saturday. The weather forecast did not look good but it ended up being great weather for the game. Pop watched Parker and Cooper and I went to cheer on #3. Daddy helped during the game and Baylor was so cute. He did great hitting the ball and got a single and a double. He loved waving to us and liked to know we were watching him. Coop on the other hand was more interested in playing in the rocks and wanted to know when his game started. Carl and Eli and Aunt Anne and Katie came to watch the Dodgers too. All the kids did great and Baylor had fun playing his first of many games!
