What The Duck?!

Parker recommends What The Duck, a photography-based daily comic strip on the web.

(okay, so Parker didn't REALLY recommend it, but if he could read.....or speak.....or comprehend things that didn't involve funny sounds or faces.....he'd totally be into it)

Tummy Time Slideshow

And just because things are so much better with music:

Photo Glut

So here are a million photos from the past week, and I think they're pretty funny. I was saying to April earlier today that it's cool how active (and reactive) Parker is now. We can say stuff and do stuff and he totally recognizes it and responds, which lends itself to endless entertainment. He's super happy all the time, which is hilarious because he's ALWAYS smiling and giggling and stuff. Sometimes we tickle him and he makes a little bear growling noise instead of laughing, which is pretty funny too. Oh, and a while back I made a post saying we thought he was teething but weren't we're sure. He's a drool machine, and he crams everything into his mouth so he can rub it on his gums. Anyways, on to the photos!

Sleepy time on Nana and Papa's back porch:

Modelling a new Nana hat:
Modelling another Nana hat:
Playing his favourite game ever with Mommy. We call it "1, 2, 3" but we really just kind of throw him up in the air on teh count of 3 and jiggle him around a bit.

Hanging out with Nana:

Yet more "1, 2, 3". Parker looooves it (thanks to Jodi for the cool clothes):

Here's Parker hanging out and having some tummy time. Interesting note about the phrase "tummy time": it's a thousand times more fun if you sing it to the tune of "Summer Time", the oldie by The Sha Na Nas, instead of just saying it like normal words.

10 days without a new post? Scandalous. April, Parker and I were in Dresden for the week visiting my family, so I have a few photos that I'm going to post but we've been super busy so I haven't had time. Hopefully I can get some up tonight!

Phone Stalker

Today Parker was a phone stalker. It sounds worse than it is, really. He was talking and laughing and doing all sorts of funny (read: loud) things, so we called April's sister Claire and left a long message of baby rambling. It was extra funny for us because for some reason baby sounds over the phone freak Claire out. So now she has a long message of ultra-scary and intimidating baby cooing and giggling. Then we called April's mom. Then we called my parents (but he's always strangely quiet when we try to get him to talk to my parents). Anyways, it's funny to us. :)
Also, just because I'm nosey, I'm always wondering if anyone actually reads this, or how many people actually check it out. Feel free to say hi in the comments!

Cutest Baby Ever?

April and I always laugh when Parker sleeps because for some reason he always puts his arms up over his head and it looks really cute. Earlier this afternoon he fell asleep on the guest room bed so I took some quick photos of him in the position. April says he looks like me when I sleep! Except that I don't wear cute elephant socks. Check 'em out. Also, Parker had the most laughs ever today, which was hilarious. April was doing a silly dance and he couldn't stop laughing! Then I tried.......and he stopped laughing.

Car Seat Blues

For some reason Parker doesn't seem to like his car seat any more. He used to travel really well, mostly falling asleep as soon as we got to the end of our street, but now he always seems kind of grumpy and unhappy when he has to be strapped in. Weird. We're going to try to go for more drives and stuff so that I guess he can kind of get used to it again. Hopefully that helps! In the meantime, Parker continues to be very cute. He loosk more and more like a little boy every day, which is pretty funny. He's laughing a lot more and getting really good at reaching for things and controlling his arms and hands!

Social Butterfly

The last few days Parker has been a social butterfly. He has had 3 different visitors in 2 days! Here are some photos.

This is Natasha and Anderson. I've been taking photos of Anderson since before he was born, so it was cool to see him again now that he's all grown up! He can walk and talk and do all kinds of cool stuff (including saying, "please"! He's so polite).

Here's Parker and Jon Lau, who is back in Kingston for med school. It was great to see him again and catch up, and hopefully he can teach Parker how to do a wicked cross-over.

Here's Scott and Gemma, back in town after being in California for a few years! It's great to have them back because they're a lot of fun (and they volunteered to baby sit! Mwahahaha...)

April found this photo of me as a baby on her computer earlier and she thinks Parker looks exactly like me when I was a baby (I think her mom thinks that, too, and I think my mom thinks that, too). I guess I KIND OF see the resemblance but Parker is definitely cuter. Thanks to my mom for scanning it and sending it to us!

More Fisheye Wackiness

Here is another fisheye photo (it's been a while) of Parker in a new outfit. He's getting so big so quickly that he's able to wear all kinds of new stuff (and thanks to everyone who got him such cool clothes)! It's also surprisingly cold out today, so April had him wearing a little jacket which looked kind of funny. Here's a photo.

Random Photo Day

I haven't seen April or Parker in a few days because I've been out of town shooting weddings, so here are a few random photos from before I left (I think the 28th or 29th).
