A Day At the Spa


Each day Parker shows everyone that he is an extremely strong and resiliant baby. With a routine finally set for Parker of sleep, play, and eat he is so much happier. We hardly expected a positive weight change from him after his bath but Parker showed us how well the routine is working by adding another 10 grams to his already chubby little body.


Speaking of bath, Parker has recentently discovered that bath time is not that big of an ordeal. It no longer entails 10 minutes of Parker belting out a high pitched cry while quivering his bottom lip. The little monkey now enjoys the process of being clean. Mommy and daddy now refer to Parker's bath time as 10 miniutes at the Spa. We have yet to decide which form of bath Parker enjoys more, a sponge bath or a full fledge dip in the tub.


With the sponge bath, Parker gets to be snuggled up in a comfy blanket as his daddy holds him. Mommy then uses the warm sterile water to wash his little body parts as the monkey looks on. If it is a full blown bath, we place the little guy in the tub filled with suds, warm sterile water and a bunch of towels and blankets so he can kick up his feet as his mommy and daddy do all the work.

Parker,

That sounds like you're having
F-U-N! We know the real truth though... you are getting yourself ready for those swims at Nonno and Nonna's house. I bet you are just like your dad (and momma!)and are going to try and be the best at everything you do! Keep enjoying the water!

Talk to you tomorrow! Have another great day!

Hi Precious:

Hope you had a great day today with your mommy and your nonna. Bet it was lots of fun and you were able to show off your skills for your nonna and make her smile just like you make me smile each time I see your picture on the blog and hear of your recent accomplishments. I hope I see you tomorrow.

I love you, my little man. Have a good night and remember to keep eating.

Well Parker I see your father has taken the pic's to haunt you until your first date arrives.....well good news is the whole world can see them now, bad is you will still be embarrassed by them when your first girlfriend comes by and your mom gets all gushy and wants to show the pics....Oh well that is just one small thing to endure to make her happy.

We are so glad to see the new pics of you this morning, it always makes my day!!!

Say hi to your Mom and Dad...give them a hug from us...Love you!!!

Laura, Craig and Elizabeth

Hey Parker,

I can't tell you how much I look forward to reading the daily updates about you...I've checked in a half dozen times today hoping to hear of your adventures for the day, but nothing new as of yet. Tell your daddy I understand all the effort and time he puts into this log, but your Uncle misses you more and more every hour. It's okay though, the best things come to those who wait.

Just wanted to let you know we're thinking of you and your parents. We all hope you had another amazing day.

Lots of love,
Uncle Mikey, Auntie Christine and Jacob
