Little Boy Clothes & Smorgasbord

Here's Parker wearing some of his Christmas clothes (they're still a bit big on him) but it's nice to see him without pajamas on. At least for a day anyways. Parker is getting more mobile all the time, and now that his legs are stronger he can do little baby squats -- he'll be standing, holding onto the coffee table, and then he'll squat down to pick something up and then stand back up without ever sitting on the floor! He has also been doing a lot of dancing (he looooves Hi-5!), so I'm going to try and get some video of it soon.





Here's Parker with his little smorgasbord of foods. He's eating some avocado, cheese, peas, and beans. He followed that up with some apple sauce and a big sippy cup full of cold water. Mmmm! While he was eating the avocado, I started to sing the tune to Frère Jacques, only with the lyrics, "avocado, avocado, yum yum yum, yum yum yum, you like avocado, you like avocado, yum yum yum, yum yum yum," and he seemed to get a kick out of it. Or he thinks my singing is laughable. One of the two.

I was interested to read your blog. As a parent you may be interested in being part of a university study I'm involved with. It’s about how infants and children develop. It wouldn’t take much of your time, and it’s a great way to contribute to knowledge by reporting on your own experiences.

Don't you just love his love of food? Garrett, you must be in awe of this little guy that comes along and likes everything!!! How does that happen? I love watching him eat. Nothing mommy puts on his tray does not make it to this mouth making him say 'yum!'. He's just lovely and funny to watch when he starts to dance.

Yeah, it's funny what he likes to eat! April and I tried some avocado yesterday and it tasted terrible, but Parker doesn't seem to mind. Maybe he doesn't have any taste buds.

Parker looks cute in little boy clothes. What a transformation. Maybe there's more than meets the eye.

Parker looks like such a little boy now - one that loves to have fun and is always super happy!! I can't wait to see him again and be able to actually hold him and play with him w/o a big pregnant belly in the way!!!!
