More Tests Tomorrow

It was yesterday when Parker had some major tests performed on him. Today you would never know that he had anything done on him. He is playing just like a regular little boy. He spent most of today climbing over everything that he possibly could. I must say that this little monkey is the toughest of all monkeys.

It is just after eight in the evening and mommy is putting the little guy to bed. Mommy and daddy are quite full after having pasta, salad and wine for dinner once again. I have to say once again that everything here tastes so much better. Today for lunch, my wife passed on the mustard so that she could savour the the salami and cheese on the fresh bread without having any harsh flavours getting in the way.

Tomorrow we will be heading to San Raffaele for a couple more tests. He will be seen by the hearing and sight specialist. I am sure that Parker will pass these tests will flying colours.

Both my wife and I have really been working on our Italian. I always sit by the television with a dictionary in hopes to pick up a word here or there that I can translate. We have both been watching Grande Frattelo religiously. For those who are not familiar with what that is it is the Italian version of Big Brother. Poor Massimo gets picked on each day by most of the other cast members. The show is a little different then we are accustomed to in North America. It seems as if the viewer choose who gets voted off. Also, the show airs every day with that particular days events, unlike what we are accustomed to where it shows three times each week and you have to read the spoilers to find out what is happening as it happens.

My wife is addicted to Young and the Restless and we finally found out that is shows on channel 4 each day at 10:30. The only problems are that it airs in Italian and it is almost two years behind the north American telecasts. Oh well, at least we have seen the episode (yes, me too) and we will more easily be able to understand what they are saying in Italian.

My wife came back into the bedroom, so Parker is probably sleeping now. I think we are going to try and watch some television in Italian tonight. Remember, you can check out the article from last year at this time by clicking here.

Hello My Little Parker Pants,

Your Daddy does such a good job each day making me so hungry! Your pasta looks yummy, yummy!

I love the picture of you trying to climb into (I think) your crib...you are such a little monkey pants! You are so strong with all of your climbing around!

Please tell your Mommy that I am trying to find a time to call her when you will not be asleep because I do not want to wake you up! I wanted to call today at 2:30 Toronto time but then I realized that would be 8:30 your time...your bed-time little one! Tell Mommy that I miss talking to her each day and that I am going to call tomorrow for sure...it is the first day without a lunch time meeting! Yahoo!

I love you so much Parker...I watched many of your videos today...my how you have grown!!!

Lots of love,
Auntie Natalie xoxoxoxox

Hiya Peanutbutter!

Wow!! That pasta looked sooooooooo yummy. I have to say, I could eat pasta every day of my life!! We're so happy to hear that the tests didn't phase you all that much. You are one tough little monkey! Jett brags to all of his friends about you. And even though all of his friends are......stuffed, he's quite proud of his Superhero cousin, Parker. Anyway, good luck with your tests tomorrow!! We love you sooooooooooooooo much. Say hi to your parents for us. We miss you guys.

Wow My little Parker man:

I just saw your video that Daddy took yesterday and yes you surely look like the drunken sailor. We sure did laugh and must say, you were the typical hambone. We are so glad that these procedures went well and that you did not have any after effects other than being Mr. Silly Billy and appearing very happy. Drugs will do that to you I am told.

Good luck with your tests tomorrow.Can we expect a repeat performance?
Sure wish we could partake in the fantastic food.

Love to all

Nana and Gaga
