Daddy has his Flu Shot

I can hear Parker fighting with his mommy as she tries to feed him in the kitchen. Parker is very funny during meal times. Sometimes he likes to eat, and others he doesn't. This morning, during breakfast I had no problem feeding the little guy, but then when I feed him dinner tonight he will probably be a little more finicky.

I found a recipe for Hungarian Goulash so I decided to make that with dumplings for us and Parker's Nanna and Grand-dad tonight since they are big fans of it. Unfortunately I was unable to locate Hungarian Paprika today so I had to make a small modification. Let's see how they like it. Me? I have never had it before so I don't know what it is supposed to taste like.

I had my flu shot yesterday. Nanna, grand-dad and mommy all had theirs already, and I still had to get mine. I had never had one before, mostly because I am terrified of needles. But I figured with everything that Parker has to go through I cannot complain. So I sucked it up yesterday, went to the IDA and had my shot. To be honest, I did not feel a thing. Everyone else said that your arm hurts quite a bit the next day, but I cannot even tell where I had my shot. I guess everyone is different. The best part of the whole thing was the free cookies and coffee afterwards. Not sure if anyone has figured it out, but I have put my diet on hold for the past few weeks. Let's hope when I step on the scale I am not too shocked.

Parker went for a ride today on his Winnie the Pooh. I must say that he is getting really good at keeping his balance and knowing what to do as I push him around the upstairs. He always holds on and keeps his feet planted firmly on the foot rests. Parker is not tall enough for to ride on it by himself. His feet do not reach the ground so for the time being I will push him whenever he wants to. Winnie the Pooh converts into a rocking horse (well not really a horse) so maybe I will let him try that out in the next couple of days.

I just checked with my wife and Parker's diaper rash is improving with the medication that the doctors prescribed for him. I told you that my wife was a professional at helping the little monkey through rashes.

Hi Parker Pants,

How are you? I hope that you are up and at em' early this morning possibly going for a cruise on your Winnie the Pooh! Tell your Daddy not to worry about dieting during the holiday season because anything eaten from December 1st to January 2nd doesn't count anyway....it is a magical Christmas present for all of us that we can eat all we want without gaining a pound! At least I think that this is true...it better be Parker Poo!

I am going to sing Old Toy Trains with my students this morning and we will put your picture on the computer so we can all see you and admire how much you have grown! Did you know that you are quite the superstar in my classroom?!?! It's true!

Lots and lots of love,
Auntie Natalie xoxox
