That's a Wrap...

I am sure you have noticed I am a little behind on our blog. I have had every intention of keeping up with pictures and such, but I just can't do it. I have decided that instead of updating the blog, I need to working on printing pictures and putting them in a photo album (I haven't printed a picture since parker was 7 months old). Most of you are on facebook and see rambles there, and if not I am going to start a monthly picture e-mail. Please let me know if you would like to be on the monthly e-mail and I will try to be better at getting some pictures out. mcgilby@yahoo.com Thank you everyone who has loved me and my boys!

Things are looking up!

New baby and I aren't broken after all! I had another physical therapy appointment this week and things are looking much better. The exercises I have been doing have been working because my muscles are stronger and the split in my abs has decreased in length and width. New baby is growing and moving like crazy. We did have a scare last week when I didn't feel the baby for a couple of days so we went to the hospital to have the baby monitored for an hour. The baby started moving as soon as they hooked the monitor up and hasn't stopped since.


Parker is also growing and moving like crazy. He has started swim lessons again and loves the pool. We have gone to the splash pool at the YMCA a couple of times and he does so well. He is so independent he runs in the water till he falls and refuses to let me hold his hand. He doesn't mind going under water if he falls, having the water rain down from the waterfall mushroom, or if he puts his face in on his own but doesn't like it if we put him under. He can count to 5, but usually skips 4. He can say A-B-C, and sings his own version of the alphabet. He loves music and loves to sing and dance. He talks up a storm, and will try to mimic anything you say. He has the funniest personality, and is the most amazing child ever!!
Cool Dudes!
Parker is a helper. He wants to do anything that I am doing, including cooking. In order to make dinner I have to give Parker his own cooking utensils and let him "stir" his own food. I try to pretend to put ingredients in by shaking the spices with lids on, but he is too smart for that. I normally end up putting some oatmeal or cereal in his bowl and have him stir it with blocks or something easily washable.
Notice the spatula in his hand here too. He was helping make dinner, but got hungry before it was done. He ended up using the spatula as his spoon and ate his whole dinner with it.
We turned the box from Parker's swing set into a clubhouse for him while the boys put the swing set together.
My little klutz has begun to climb, but he isn't very good at it. Parker has no grace or balance! Here he was trying to climb over the arm into the chair, but he got stuck half way there. In a matter of 2 days Parker fell enough times to cut the back of his head open on a rock, fall on his face and skin his chin, run into the futon and bruise his eye, fall and skin his knee, fall and skin his forehead, fall and skin the same knee in the same place for the second time in one day. From what I have heard that is just like his father when he was little. Let's hope he outgrows this cause he is going to give me a heart attack!

The Best Baby in the WORLD!!!!

We moved Parker into his big boy bed last week. The first three days were hard, he fell out or crawled out each night. The second night I heard him screaming and I found him stuck under his bed :) He has now slept a week straight in his bed without falling out. He goes to bed so well, and has only gotten out of bed when he wakes up in the morning.
Some cute random pics.
On Mother's Day we had a busy day with breakfast with my Mom, lunch at my Aunts, and margarita's and cards at our neighbors house. We came home that evening and found an univited guest trying to sneak into our house!!!!!!
Thankfully Cameron and Steve came to the rescue and killed the snake. We matched the markings on-line and we think it was a hooded night snake. Thankfully.... NOT a rattler!!!
