Guess Who Is ......

WALKING??!It is official-Parker took 4 steps....later during the day he did 6 steps....then tonight for Daddy he took 8! He has fallen into the typical category of 1st born boys....(crawled at 10 months and walked at 15 & 1/2 months). Parker looks like a little penguin with his arms out in front, but he is just a grinning after he realizes he has made it with out falling!
No pictures to post of this big milestone....but I do have a photo of another first in Parker's life...."his first time meeting Santa!"

We are not big on Santa-and Mike and I both grew up knowing that Christmas is all about the birth of our Savior! However, it is fun to have this little part of "surprise Christmas morning-and wonder HOW so many toys could possibly get under that tree? We have come to a decision that we will not go overboard(since he gets so many great gifts from both sides of our families) and try to stick to 3 main gifts for Parker that we give him ...just as Jesus received the 3 gifts. We want to teach Parker the importance of giving!

So, yesterday my good friend Samantha and I took Parker, and her daughter, Marlee to meet Santa!

OH boy! Did we get some looks...TEARS.... and more looks!
The pictures speak volumes!
We will see what he thinks of Santa next year! : 0

I got confirmation yesterday,that I will have my camera by the end of next week-so yeah to that! I might figure out this new cell phone and do some photos of Parker walking. If not before Christmas, we will post some following the holiday.

I just mailed out the Christmas cards today, and they should arrive soon to all of you who are on our list!
