Parker-isms



There is no denying that this boy is growing up.  He has started doing some of the cutest, most random little things lately and I never want to forget them...

Hair pulling.  It's almost like he's saying, "You're not going anywhere, lady."  (There was, however, one occasion that he actually pulled out a huge clump of my hair, though.  That sucked.)

Kicking and scooting.  I'll lay him in the pack-n-play or crib and can hear him kicking his legs into the air, and then dropping them down.  He scoots himself all over the crib this way, and sometimes wakes himself up because he's crammed down into the corner.  He's also managed to rub off most of his hair on the back of his head by doing this.  Love that little bald spot!

Suction cup(-ping).  Every time I burp Parker, or bring him remotely close to my face, he turns to face me and attempts to succeeds in latching on to my cheek or nose (while pulling my hair, of course).  I kind of feel like I'm being attacked by an octopus when this happens.

Reeling in his prey
That look of determination in his eyes...

Fist pumping.  When Parker starts to get drowsy while nursing, he throws his fist into the air over and over again.  His pace slows with each throw, and then sleep finally wins.  All the while he holds my finger.

Even as a second-timer, I'm shocked by how much he's grown in just 4 months.  Carrying him in the infant car seat is officially a challenge; and when he's laying across my lap on the boppy, he looks especially huge.  Where did my 7 pound baby go?  I think time is actually moving faster with Parker, because it's shared with Lucy.  It's a little sad, because he is so cuddly and so happy the majority of the time, and I don't want that to end; but I know there is so much to look forward to too.  I know, without doubt, this boy is going to be just as big a character as his sister.
