Happy Birthday, Little P!

Today is Parker's third birthday. I sit here and think, "How in the world do I have a 3 year old?" But, then I think back to the night he was born and that seems like decades ago. I haven't given a Parker update in a long time. So, here are his 3 year old favorites:

  • He still sleeps a good 3-4 hours in the afternoon.
  • He loves TV and videos. I love them too, because they work as bribes.
  • Chicken nuggets, chicken nuggets, chicken nuggets
  • His favorite songs are anything by Todd Fields.
  • He can name and identify all of the planets, lower and uppercase letters, and about 20 musical instruments.
  • He's learning to use the potty. He went twice today!!! Yay!!!
  • He has to get out of the house everyday. He starts asking to get in the car if we haven't gone anywhere by 11am.
  • He's still afraid of new shoes, unless they're crocs. Then he becomes obsessed.
  • He likes to pick out his own shirts, but still can't put them on himself.
  • He's obsessed with the villains in TV shows and videos. There's a song that says, "Hell could come against us". He now points and screams, "It's Hell!" to be funny. Not so funny in public.
  • He also likes to act like he needs help when we are in parking decks. He starts screaming, "Hello? Is anybody there? Help! I need help!" You should see all the soccer moms run.
  • He doesn't say, "I love you" quite as much, but when he does say it, I know he really means it.

We love our little boy!

Airport Fun

Yesterday we went to the Dekalb Peachtree Airport. They have picnic tables and a playground right on the runway. It was great!! Parker especially loved watching the airplanes and all of the helicopters fly by. I guess several local news stations launch their helicopters from there as well. It was a lot of fun. We will definitely be going back. Here are some pics...

Backyard Fun

Ode to the baby pool. I love the baby pool. Instant fun in the backyard. I think I'll have one forever. (Unless we can someday get a real pool.) I have no problem putting on a swimsuit and getting a tan in a baby pool. We have 3 different baby pools. We didn't buy them all. But, we have them. It's amazing what joy 6 inches of water can bring.
