I thought it would be cute to get some pictures of Parker in his diaper while he was sitting in Daddy's chair. They turned out super cute and I wanted to share them with all of you! Hope you enjoy!

Last Friday we took Parker out to my Aunt Anita's for a photo shoot with my cousin's baby, Elaina and a friend's baby, Jacee. The babies were all born within a couple weeks of each other, so we wanted to get them all together to compare! It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed taking pictures of all of them!
These pictures were taken of Parker in his Soothing Motions Glider. He absolutely loves that thing! I can't believe the difference in the two pictures. The first one was taken when he was just a week or two old and the second one I took today. He is now seven weeks old! I can't believe how fast they grow up!

A few weekends ago, we got together with Beth & Matt and had a cookout. It was fun to see the boys together. Cade wasn't real sure about Parker and kept wanting to get close to check him out. Beth & Matt were a little hesitant to let him get too close because they were scared he would be too rough with the baby. Before long Parker will be old enough to were they can play together!
We went to Craig & Tracy Stewart's house for the 4th of July to celebrate with family & friends. You can see the fireworks from their house, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. We got lots of rain and the fireworks show was cancelled! We still had a really good time though and managed to get some cute shots of Parker. Hope you enjoy!

Parker will be four weeks old this Thursday! I can't believe he has been here for almost a full month! He is changing each and every day and doesn't really look like a newborn anymore! We are enjoying every minute we get to spend with him because the time goes by so quickly! I took this picture of him yesterday while he was nice and bright-eyed. Isn't he getting so big?

This past weekend we made our first trip to Galesburg to visit Bobby's side of the family. They had not seen Parker yet (other than pictures) and were looking forward to his first visit. Galesburg is about a 4.5 hour drive from home and Parker did pretty well on the trip. We had to stop once on the way up and once the way home to feed him, but he slept the rest of the way. We stayed at Aunt Nancy's & Uncle Jerry's like we always do when we go up there. They were all so excited to see him! It was definitely a full weekend trying to get around to see everyone and on top of all of that Bobby was in a wedding too! We were all exhausted when we got home, but definitely had a great time!
We had to wait for Parker's umbilical cord and bell from his circumcision to fall off before giving him a tub bath (up until then he was just getting sponge baths). A couple weeks ago he finally lost both and got his first real bath experience. He absolutely loved it! I took his clothes and diaper off before putting him in the bath and he started to fuss because he doesn't like to be naked, but once I sat him in his bath tub he was a happy boy! He seemed like he was so relaxed!
