Anyone See the Little Bumbo Bee?

I had mentioned in my last post that we were going to bring in Parker's Bumbo Chair from home. This way he can sit in his chair a couple of times a day to learn how it feels. Parker has always loved being on his tummy, back or his feet but this was one thing he did not enjoy doing until recently. As you can see, Parker looks quite comfortable as he stares at his friends on his mobile.

When I arrived at the hospital today after work I felt that I should give Parker his regular "tummy time". Today however, when Parker decided to move his legs back and forth, as I have been accustomed to seeing, he actually started to move. I don't know where he planned on going but I was very happy to see that he came to a hault as he forgot to reposition his hands in front of him. If it were not for that, the little monkey would have crawled right out of his crib. I do see him looking at the sliding glass door to the anti-room all the time. Maybe he was trying to make a break for it.

Parker has been struggling to get 600 mL of formula down since he came off his IV. Mommy and daddy are not too worried about it though since our family has never had a problem eating. Our problem is stopping once we started. We were happy that Parker picked up another ounce today. It will not be long before he is 12 pounds.

I know it is already posted on the top right of the page but Parker's final round in the baby contest is coming up on Saturday and he is going to need your help to win. So check this site regularly and click on the vote for Parker link starting Saturday so my little boy can win his first contest.

Hey Parker!

I love the pic' look so great! It is great you have your chair now...a whole new world to see how exciting! You parents better keep a close eye on you now that you are moving..if there is one thing I learned from Elizabeth is once you start you little ones sure do move fast.

Have a great day Parker and give your parents a hug for us!

Love Laura, Craig and Elizabeth
