I seriously JUST wrote his six month post. I told someone in a grocery store that he was six months old this last week and they remarked on how big he was and I remembered, wow...he's really almost seven.
It's just not possible.
Time is FLYING past. I'm soaking up every single second of this precious time!!
Parker is just the sweetest, smiley-est, most content little guy - especially if he's being held by his mama. ;) I remember thinking Nathan was a Mama's Boy but my little Parker Bear is taking the cake for that.
He will get on his hands and knees and rock back and forth or turn in circles but we've had no crawling yet. THANKFULLY. After experiencing the "joy" that is a crawling baby, I'm in no rush to have him start yet!! Especially since we now have the added bonus of tiny toys like Spider-Man action figures all over the floor. ;)
He loves to dig through his toy box and throw them all on the floor, loves to bang toys and pacifier on tables, loves to be tickled, loves to be loud, loves to dance, loves to be kissed (if you stop, he'll ram his head back into your face), and LOVES to eat, whether that's nursing or food.
He is a super picky eater though - he does not like homemade baby food and he can't stand avocados, bananas or peas. I can't really blame him for the peas and the bananas. We were iffy about carrots but I guess they have passed the test. ;)
Parker is my little warm-natured baby. He loves to be in a diaper and nothing else. It's starting to get cold here though so to his frustration, I make him wear clothes. ;) His little hands get too cold otherwise!!
Parker is finally on a great nap schedule. He will sleep for about 45 minutes in the morning and then sleep another 2-ish hours in the afternoon. Then he usually goes to bed about 7:30. He is still nursing about six times a day and he also eats about 3 ounces of baby food at lunch and dinner. So far his favorites are pears and applesauce but he also loves sweet potatoes and squash. :)
He loves his brother with all his heart, loves to be in the same room as all of us, puts up a big fuss if he is feeling left out, he adores when Daddy gets home, loves his pacifier, loves to talk and yell, loves to laugh, loves to be snuggled and is the most content when he is just being carried around everywhere.
