weekday recap - {in iPhone pics} w. 7

from the minute sam gets home from work until the minute parker is in bed, these two are inseparable.  they have so much fun wrestling, watching sportscenter, & doing all those father/son things that a mom just doesn't do quite the same way.  i love snuggling & playing with my little boy but once sam is home, it's all about dad.

i was in the office on tuesday {my office is seen in the photo on the left} & parker hung out at heather & kaylee's.  he got his first taste of cheerios today, & apparently they were a hit.  look how serious he is about his cheerios... that's one determined cheerio eater.  {photo courtesy of heather}

happy fifth anniversary to us!  as per tradition, we ordered pizza & kept it pretty low-key.  we usually reserve the real celebrations for the following weekend.  after some tasty pizza, we headed to the mall for some shopping.  while sam shopped for new sunglasses, i made horrible mirror faces while trying on glasses.  don't be jealous of the awesome mirror face.... it's taken me 28 years to perfect. 

who is this child?  no seriously... where did this behavior come from?  first crawling, now climbing?  and standing up?  make it stop.  or at least slow down.  the standing up incident on the left was followed by a lovely crash landing that ended with a puffy red ear & a few tears.  i'm thinking that was the first of many.  i felt horrible, by the way.

check out parker's latest trick... STANDING!  whaaaaaat?  it's true.  while sam & i sat & watched {yay for us both being there, right?}, p-ray crawled over to his stroller, pulled himself up to his knees, & then got up on his feet to stand!  this is all happening too quick.  tell this kid to slow down, please.

later that night, we hung out at my sister's with family & rang in the new year.  and when i say rang, i'm talking nine cousins under the age of fourteen with noise makers and screams that had to have been heard from miles away once the clock struck twelve.  parker slept through it though, so that's cool.

hope you all had a fun & safe new year's eve & are having a wonderful first day of the new year!  happy 2011 friends!!
