Hey, its Parker.  On December 24th, I turned 4 months old.  There certainly was a lot of hype around here about the coming of the 'Big Man' down our chimney!  Elle and Taylee had this elf that was hanging around named Mistletoe.  She would go back to the North Pole every night and tell Santa whether they deserved to be on the Nice list or the Naughty list.  Me...I'm good all the time so I wasn't too concerned.  Then, I met the big guy and he brought us all a lot of new stuff!

 I guess that my sisters have been good since they got lots of Princess stuff...They pay a lot of attention to me and fight over who gets to sit by me in the car.  They had their 3rd birthday yesterday and got to eat some ice cream! 

 Me.......I'm still on the boob!

I have been learning a bunch of new tricks.  I will smile to anyone that will pay attention to me.  I showed my Dad how I can roll over the other day but haven't figured out how to do that again.  I can clear the room with some really smelly gas...which as a boy, I'm really proud of.  I am definitely  enjoying my ZZZZZ;s, and pretty much sleep through the night.

We are all excited that our big sister Shelby is going to come visit for a few days!  We feel very lucky to be a family.  It is a full time job for me to run the family 24/7 but I am doing a good job of it.

Love, Parker

Let me introduce myself...

Here I am 1 week old!

Hey everyone, my name is Parker John Smith.  It is about time my parents let me have a little computer time.  I have a bit of catching up to do since I am now 14 weeks old.  I think I am finally starting to adjust to life outside of the womb, but let me tell you, it was a lot less noisy in there.  I have the best two big sisters, but they can be pretty noisy at times.

Here I am right before I was born in my moms tummy!

Here I am a few hours later!

Well I guess I will start from the beginning, I was born in Friday August 24, 2012 at 12:00 p.m.  I was just a little guy weighing in at 6 lbs 9 oz and 20 inches long.  I am making up for it now, mom and dad say I am growing like a weed.  I have been doing great since we got home from the hospital.  I like to make sure my mom keeps busy, so I puke all the time so that she has plenty of laundry to do.

Here I am with my dad, he sure is proud!                      Here are my sisters, they sure love to hold me.

I have had a lot of first in my short time here, such as my first airplane ride when I was just 2 weeks old.  Mom and dad took me to Chicago while dad was at a meeting.   Mom and I spent a lot of time walking around the city.  There was so much to look at, but mostly I just slept.  My sisters sure like to see what I am doing.  They really like to give me my binkie even if I don't want it.  My sister Elle loves to hold me.  Taylee is always a little concerned that I am going to "spit up" on her.  I guess I do a fair amount of that.

 Here I am with dad on my first hike up at Snowbird.

 I decided to show mom and dad my smile a few weeks ago and that has earned me big points.

Here I am at 13 weeks!

Well that is about it.  Mom says she will let me keep you updated more often from here on out!
