The Emperor's New Clothes

Today Parker got to throw away his yellow sleeper and dawn some new clothes. Now that the little monkey is not hooked up to any wires or tubes we thought it would be a good time to introduce to him to the GAP. Parker loved being in his new blue long-sleeved shirt and cool denim jeans. You can see him lounging around as he checks himself out in his new elephant mirror, the perfect accessory for any baby's crib.

Parker spent the day hanging out with his mommy and daddy. Doing what he does best, eating and playing. Parker decided that he was going to take advantage of having the whole day with his dad by not sleeping a wink during the day. It was play, play, and more play for this little monkey. If it wasn't trying to swat at his new mobile, or lying on his back on his gymni, it was either doing a little 'tummy time', or his real favourite, climbing up his daddy's stomach.

But all play comes at an expense. Parker was a hungry little boy as he polished off 625 mL by the time we left tonight. In the end, we had a great time together. So great, that mommy had to kick daddy out of the room so she could put Parker down for bed. Apparently, daddy's only know how to play. So after daddy fed the little monkey, he snuggled with his mommy and finally fell asleep.

Don't tell your mommy little monkey, but next weekend we can play all day too.

Hey Parker,

Should I let everyone know just how much your Daddy played with you on Sunday? So much that you slept all day on Monday. That's OK though, because I still got to kiss and kiss and kiss you some more.

Pleasant dreams Cutie Pie.

Nonna & Nonno

Luv you lots handsome boy Nonno!

Well Parker darling, you could be the baby model for Baby Gap - aren't you just adorable!

I'm so glad you got to wear some new clothes - you look so cute in them!

I'm glad you had a fun-filled day with daddy - daddies ARE great for that - and you have a great one!

Talk to you soon,

What a little dude! You are too adorable!

Uncle Michael said...

Hi Parker, looking good!
You've obviously inherited your great style sense from your Uncle. Keep it up. I can give you a few tips when you get older. You know, stuff like "how much hair gel is too much" and "black shirt versus colour...".
Either way, just keep on growing and getting healthier.
We can't wait for you to be better soon.
Lots of love
Uncle Michael
