I think a lot of parents tend to call their kids Bear, although I'm not sure why. For us, we started calling him Parker Bear because he used to make little bear-growling noises that were super cute, and then it just sort of stuck. It's kind of funny referring to him as "The Bear", and I tend to insert "Parker Bear" into songs all the time (ie. "Ooo eee ooo I look just like Parker Bear. Oh oh and you're little Parker Bear"). If he grows up foraging for honey and trying to hibernate, I take full responsibility. Here are some photos.
