back from vacay with a 3 month old

the site is currently under construction. blogger has changed its templates/design mechanisms & i'm trying to figure out how to make things the way i like. until then, bare with me (or point me in a helpful direction...! I want the wide columns, wider/bigger pictures look. help!)

so we just got back from visiting all my family in utah the last week & a half. parker & i went down for the first week, then sam came down for the last half a week. it was a blast. i am going through family/hot weather/vacation/so many arms to hold parker/shopping with sisters & mom withdrawals.

i will eventually post some pics from this trip & hit some of the high points. until then, a p-ray update.

parker is 3 months

this is a big milestone to me. he is no longer a newborn & no longer just sleeps & eats. he interacts, he smiles, he giggles.

he weighs 15 pounds 1 ounce, he has now had his first airplane ride, he's met all his cousins (all 18 of them!), he carries on baby talk conversations, he smiles every time he's looked at by anyone, he is so strong - he loves to stand up on your lap, he still enjoys blowing bubbles, drooling, & spitting, goes to sleep in 5-10 minutes most nights drowsy-but-awake when swaddled, he busts out of his swaddle in the first hour or two, but is ok with it, sleeps from 10:00 - 6ish, then 6:30ish to 9:00ish most nights, loves tummy time & is getting really really good at holding his head up while on his belly, naps 3-4x a day for 1-3 hours, he naps on his tummy with his head smashed between his hands (this freaks me OUT, but it's the only way i can get the kid to take a nap. yikes.), loves to grab & pull hair/necklaces/earrings/whatever he can get in his hands when being held, is wearing mostly 3-6m clothes & some 6-9m things (all his onsies are 6-9m), loves his playmat & his bouncy chair where he can swat & pull at his dangling toys, has spent time at a utah "beach" where he experienced dipping his feet in cold lake water...

...and he is still so dang cute.

love this kid.


  1. I agree--still so dang cute!!

  2. We are definitely suffering from Amy/Parker/Sam withdrawals, too! So wonderful to have you all here for so long... Love you! Mom

  3. Seriously, so dang cute. I need to hold him again.
