Parker's second year in review...
This past weekend was so busy with birthday parties, a baby shower, a scary Saturday morning, and a trip to Chuck E Cheese! So busy, that I am still recovering. Parker had 2 birthday parties this weekend, one with church playmates and one with my family. We celebrate with Stacey's family this coming weekend. So many parties for a little one. It is funny to see him open cards and already know to look for money. He got many great gifts, but is still warming up to his gift from mommy and daddy, a tricycle. He likes to stand on the back and let daddy push him through the kitchen. Maybe he will like it when it gets warmer and he can ride outside.
Our dogs have been staying in the garage because it has been so cold. Saturday morning husband opened the garage door to the let the dogs out to take care of their business, and they ran away. This didn't use to happen until they started building an elementary school across the street and the workers began to feed them. Shortly after their disappearance, we got a call. Kelli had been hit by a car, our chocolate lab. Husband left to get them at the lady's house who found her. The call had not come from the person who hit her! This was really upsetting. Kelli has a crushed hip, but the vet said that she will learn to adapt and be okay! You have no idea what this meant to husband. Kelli has been his girl for over 10 years. I was worried about our other lab who has always had Kelli around.
Saturday lunch Emaline and I were honored at a Sip and See with husband's family. Emaline got some beautiful clothes and gifts.
Saturday night we took Parker to Chuck E Cheese. Parker had so much fun. Emaline slept through the entire thing. Next time we go we will not eat the pizza and won't buy tokens. Parker doesn't know the games need the tokens, he just runs up to them and pretends he is playing anyway.
Monday was Emaline's 1 month check up. She weighed 13.3 oz!
