A Visit From Friends

Today we had a visit from two of our best friends. We don't normally get many visitors around here so it was nice to have them over. I am not that big on using names when I write my articles but I shall here. Natalie and David both teach so it was very difficult to see them during the duration of the school year. It is so imperative that no germs come in contact with the little guy that we have to limit contact with friends to do so. That said, the school year is over and we were so pleased to have them come by to see our little guy. They know the rules regarding Parker so that made life easier.

Parker spent a good two hours today hanging out with his Nana and Granddad since the four of us went to my parents for a relaxing day by the pool. Parker loves spending time with his Nana and Granddad and is so good to them when we are gone. I think one of Parker's favourite things is lying on his granddad's shoulder as he walks around the house. I don't think I have ever heard him cry when he does that.

Daddy has been working with Parker on his sitting as he does not sit by himself for an extended period of time. I have decided that it is Parker's and daddy's goal to have him sitting by himself within two weeks today. It is going to take a lot of work but the two of us can do it. We already do a couple of tummy time sessions a day so I think I will just change one of those to a sitting time, and then have him watch TV using his sitting pillow once a day. That will definitely keep his attention.

Tomorrow we head down to Sick Kid's for the Parker's enzyme replacement therapy, and to give some blood. Let's keep our fingers crossed that his numbers start to increase soon.

Sleep tight little one,
