all I can manage

My life is a whirlwind of toddlerhood + my dad's congressional campaign. A few new pictures are all I can manage :)

action shot!

We bought a bike for me and got a baby seat installed on the back, best purchase ever! We love going for bike rides together!

Parks loves cruising!

Safety first with the helmet! Please notice the "shocks" on the baby seat...hilarious.

cute as a button

I know I'm biased, but these pictures are just sooo cute! Thanks to Aunt Shannon for the adorable outfit!

He has been climbing up that thing all by himself since he was 13 months old! (I stand right behind him of course)

still has those sweet cheeks!
My very own little oompa loompa!

First Landing State Park

We went to First Landing park yesterday and let Parks explore. He loved it! It was so cool. We had the whole park to ourselves and it was really fun to walk around the woods as a little family. I can't wait for it the warm up a little so we can play outside more!

"Why don't we come here more often?"
"Ahhh this is great daddy!"

"Slow and steady"
My two trailblazers, making sure we were safe to go forward :)

15 Months!

15 months, are you kidding me? Parks is a full fledged toddler and my lack of blogging proves it! Gone are the days of 2 naps and little mobility! And you know what? I like it! I think every month he gets more fun and more interactive. It's just a blast to start interacting with him in new ways and seeing his personality come through.

Our days are now filled with going to parks, the aquarium, "my gym", music class, playing outside, getting together for playdates, etc. We're pretty busy actually when you combine Parks' "classes" and playdates with me working two mornings a week. That's the way I like it, being stuck in the house all day was not my cup of tea!

Parks got his 15 month check-up and everything was good. He is in the 60% for height, 30% for weight and drum roll please....90% for head circumference! Ha! His head has been huge since he was born. We just tell ourselves its because he has lots of brains ; ) Our doctor informed me that his famous "potbelly" is just air from him gulping his drinks. We all had a good laugh about what would happen if we squeezed his belly :)

A few more random pics of our sweet boy!

How do my tonsils look?
"yuck, mommy just gave me veggies!"
