6 Months

Our sweet Parker is 6 months old today! We went to the doctor for his 6 week check-up on Thursday. He is healthy and growing very well! He weighs 18lbs. 13oz which is the 75% and is 27 3/4 inches long, which is 90%. What a big boy!
I am really loving everything about Parker these days. He loves to laugh, especially at Nolan. He enjoys his exersaucer, the bouncy seat, and just rolling around on the floor. He has recently been able to sit up on his own. He loves grabbing toys and "playing" while sitting. He likes eating, but loves vegetables much more than fruits. He is happy to go anywhere as long as he can see people and nap when he needs it. He sleeps really well at night and is a pretty good napper, too. We just really enjoy being with him and are so grateful for his easy-going, happy personality.
Everyday we are enjoying the brother thing more and more. Nolan is DYING for a playmate, and Parker can't grow fast enough for him. Parker loves watching Nolan play and will crack up whenever he sees him. Sometimes Nolan really thinks Parker is bigger that 6 months and tries to "get" him. I truly don't think he means to make Parker cry. Right?




I am not much of a photographer, but I love the comparison in size between these guys. Also, notice Parker's really cute birthmark.
Now if you ask how old Parker is, we can say a half!

What darling nephews I have! Sad, though, that Parker is 6 months and I have yet to meet him. Cute, cute!
