...9 months and not a tooth in sight. I'm not sure if a doctor can really predict when a tooth will erupt, but she was saying she didn't see/feel anything that would make her believe they would be arriving anytime soon.
...we are having to push solids onto Parker, his pediatrician feels we need to get him started. She was surprised that he wasn't eating much in the way of solids. We have found that he does like to eat scrambled eggs, but doesn't eat very much of it. I'm going to look into some softer finger type foods and skip trying to get Parker to eat puree's
Just a couple pictures into the shoot and he's trying to escape! Here I was thinking that putting him on the rocking chair would keep him still longer.
Parker is so mobile right now! Last month he was just barely moving around the furniture. He can really boogie around everything now.
...loves to walk around everything and anything he can hold onto.
...loves when you hold his hands and walk him around.
...is very inquisitive.
...loves wearing as little clothing as possible.
...loves his feet, and does not like when I make him wear shoes.
...loves his big sister so much and loves when she will take him to play in her room.
...loves to give big hugs.
...loves to give kisses.
...will cuddle with me all day if it was possible.
...has some of the cutest smiles. The picture below was taken a few weeks ago, but I love how he scrunches up his face when he does this smile. Parker does a similar face when he is upset except that he scrunches his nose and lips.
...when he gets mad, he will try to pull apart whatever is in his hand.
...when he gets mad, he growls and grunts at you.
...when he gets mad, he will scream at you.
...when Parker is tired he pulls his hair.
...when Parker is tired he blows on my shoulder and makes "puffer" sounds(like if you blow on their belly.)
...when Parker is tired he wants no one except mommy.
...when Parker is tired he plays with my eyes, nose, and lips until he falls asleep.
This past month, I have been thinking about what we are going to do for Parker's 1st birthday. Most would think that we would be doing Spiderman, but we decided to hold that theme off for one of his older birthdays. Instead, the theme is Royalty. The day I found out he was a boy, I started calling him "my little Prince" and it has stuck. So, I thought this theme was fitting.
I'm going to make his diaper, a matching "1" applique shirt and a reversible cape to match out of these print fabrics:
I'm also going to make some banners, and a few other things using this same fabric. I'm hoping to have another blogger design his crown to match the colors.
I liked how this blog did the invitations, so I think I will be making something similar.
Royalty Sweet Prince 1st Birthday
We aren't doing cake, but instead cupcakes. Somehow, the cupcakes with fit together to form a castle. We have 3 months to go and I have a feeling it is going to go by fast.
Happy 9 months, my little Prince!
