Parker had a good growth spurt this past month. Not sure his height, but when I measure him, really quickly, it's around 30.5" According to the Wii fit, Parker lost a pound or so. We have been weighing him on the Wii fit since he was born, so we find it pretty accurate. He is such a busy little guy that I'm not surprised that he is really thinning out.
He is starting to look like a little boy, instead of a baby. I love these recent pictures of him.
Parker has picked up a lot of signs the past couple of months. He can now sign around 15 words. He's not perfect with all of them, like he uses his finger instead of thumb when signing mommy or daddy. He doesn't sign "more" perfectly, but the point is that he is able to communicate to us when he needs something.

The outdoor season has arrived in the Valley of the Sun. It has been a beautiful 75 degrees for a couple of weeks now. It allows for more outdoor time including taking Parker to the Zoo and riding around in his Pirate ship.
The weather was so beautiful we didn't even realize that we had been at the zoo for over 6 hours.
We had a fun run in with the peacock.
Happy 17 months baby boy. We love you so much! Thank you for visiting.
