today was a blast! after finishing, yes FINISHING clearing out our backyard (i can't believe the day is here a year and a half later!), we headed to the pumpkin patch. parker had a blast runing through the pumpkins and also loved the hayride with a pit stop at the petting zoo. at the end of the ride, parker got to pick out his very own pumpkin, which he cried when we took it away to put in the car. DRAMA. here are some pics from the adventure.....enjoy!
so today on my afternoon off from work, parker and i hit up the mall, specifically "stride rite" shoe store. parker was just starting to outgrow his size 3 "soos" (shoes), or so i had thought so i figured we'd pick out some new ones for fall. once i picked out a lovely pair of $50 "soos", the sales lady measured his feet. my little munchkin is now apparently a SIZE 6!!! and i've been cramming his poor little tooties into size 3's (with socks i might add) for how long now?!?!??! mom of the year, folks, that's me :-)
so to make myself feel a little better, we continued on with my therapy shopping and went to "Children's Place" where i bought parker some winter gear AND the cutest little pea coat. pics to come when it finally cools down here.
more about the little guy.....parker is "talking" a lot these days. he will have whole conversations and even "performances" with hand gestures etc. i'm pretty sure he thinks he's on stage half the time, i mean the world does revolve around him you know! some of my favorites things he says are "soos" (shoes) and "shooshos" (cheerios). we think it's adorable, but hopefully he'll be able to figure out his "Sh" and "Ch" sounds eventually. parker has also become super loving. he's always been really cuddly, but ever since he's become a true toddler and walking, he just doesn't have the time to cuddle, but lately in the midst of his play, exploration, etc. he'll stop and come over and give me a quick hug and then move on to the next adventure. yes my heart melts each time!
so the other day parker was looking super-cute so i decided to snap a few photos. well the little decided that this was a full blown photo shoot and decided to come up with some poses on his own. where this came from, i have no idea!
here they are in sequential order:
seriously i have no idea where this came from.....daddy? we're off to go for a walk!
a mom to two boys and wife of a southern gentleman, i love all things chocolate brown, girly and monogrammed. i have a love hate relationship with cooking......i love trying new recipes, i hate planning and grocery shopping! i thrive off of order and organization and get anxious when my house is not clean or my bed is not made, although i am guilty of frequent dust bunnies in my corners every once in a while. i have perfectionistic tendencies, but realize i am far from perfect and it is only by the grace of God i make it through each day.
