We are down to the last week, before the big birthday celebration for Parker(8/20)! In the meantime, the house is being "baby -proofed" more and more!
School started today here in GA and so we are sad to say that our summer is pretty much over. Last Monday, I started watching Kayleigh again! It is a joy to have a little one that is the same age as Parker, and well-behaved. She is a doll, and fun to dress up!
Last weekend we installed a "top of the stair" gate! It was the best thing! We lock the gate,shut all the rooms and just let Parker go up and down the hallway, crawling. If he is not being entertained by Abbey's cage, then he is trying to climb the stairs(when we let him!)
Last Thursday, I gave him an opportunity to explore the steps and he took full advantage! He climbed his way up to the top! The stairs is off limits (it is gated, and he is always so curious about it). He has great balance and has not fallen-yet. So today I captured his proud moment and his first time to climb the whole flight of stairs!
A special note of being a "Stay at home Mom"-" I try not to tell Mike to many "new" things that Parker is doing! I don't want Mike to be sad that he is missing the moments. So, I try to let Mike have his "firsts" to watch Parker doing his "first" time (so he thinks)!
(I appreciate the privledge to stay home, but I want Mike to see all of Parker's firsts in his times too!)
Friday night-( I had a 6:00 hair apt and Mike met me to get Parker) Mike took Parker home and played for a bit before his bedtime. I got a text from Mike while I was at the salon and it made me LAUGH! "Parker just climbed the whole flight of stairs in less then 1 min! He is crazy!"
I was so glad Mike got to experience "first-hand" and didn't hear about the moment from me!
Enjoy the video...
We just got Parker's 1 year photos done on Saturday-so I will post some of our favorites shortly.
Have a great week!
Jenn, Mike & Parker
