Let me hold you longer...

Today Parker is 7 months old~ and the book "Let me hold you longer!" is really starting to hit home to my heart.
We got this book at one of my baby showers from Gramma Riese!
It is a tear jerker! It really makes you treasure every moment and grasp the fact that we capture photos for all our childrens's firsts, but we never know when their lasts will be? Their last: of waking up in the middle of the night, nursing, cuddle moment, last time they bring you flowers (etc) will be? So the words were so true tonight as I got Parker ready for bed... and I thought"let me hold you for just 5 more minutes...because you might not want to rock to sleep in another month?!" I would really encourage all you mom's and dad's to get the book by Karen Kingsbury!
Here are some precious moments we have captured the past 7 months!

We love this sweet boy that God has blessed us with and we are so thankful to be chosen as his mom and dad!

A busy and memorable week behind us!

Parker is finally better from his long stretch of the flu! It was about 5 days of being 'under-the-weather' and he really was sick. His fever finally dropped on Friday, just in time to celebrate Daddy's birthday! I took Parker to see Dr. McGee for his 6 month check-up and he will actually get his shots this week! He is 17 lbs 4 oz and 27 & 1/2 inches long! (Once again he is 50 % for his weight and 90% for his height!) He has stumped us...we thought for sure he was over 20 lbs...but he is just a solid little boy! He already has 2 teeth and is about to crawl! He is very tickleish on his feet (and he takes after daddy when it comes to that!)I am posting a video of him and Abbey! (She use to like him...until she discovered that he "moves" toward her!!!!! OH NO! Poor Abbey!)
Saturday, Mike turned 28 and we celebrated at a Partner's house (whom Mike worked under, when he was with PWC!-(They invited us to their annual BBQ and it was a nice way to celebrate Mike's birthday!) We took our neighbors and good friends, Rick & Lorelei Hoeye and Terry Hoeye & his girlfriend Hilary.
The day was a memorable one...and the weather was what made it a memory for sure! I am sure you have heard in the news that Atlanta got hit with horrible tornadoes. We had 2 tornadoes pass over us and the most memorable part was the hail (the size of 1/2 dollars) and me nursing Parker in the closet! We are SAFE and did not get any damage from the storms! We are really praising God for his protection!
Enjoy the latest videos and photos!
