A Tired Little Man

Parker was quite the tired little boy today. Although he did have a visit from his Nonna, to her dismay Parker was a little more interested in getting some sleep then playing. We are not sure if it was because he played so much yesterday, the fact that he had to give blood today, or because he seems to be going through a growth spurt. Regardless, he was not much for playing today.

That said, he did have another good feeding day, polishing off over 600 mL before we left for the evening. Parker gained 0.7 ounces and now weighs in at a cool 10 lbs 3 ounces.

When Parker's daddy got there he did have a change in heart and was able to be inticed into playing for an hour and a half. Parker had his best 'tummy time' to date and was also able to spin the lobster on his gymni quite a few times before daddy got bored and wanted to play a different game.

After play time, Parker decided he wanted some food but before I could say spaghetti he was out like a light, fast asleep in his daddy's arms.

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
