My "Giving Birth" Day and Parker's 1st Birthday

Parker's 1st birthday was last week and I just wanted to share a few pictures and thoughts about the big day.

Here is a picture of Parker and my sister Kelsey. She was teaching him to say "green" as they looked out on my parent's yard.

Parker woke up on his birthday and somehow knew that he was now a big boy. He decided to start saying a bunch of new words and taking more steps than he ever has-- 16!

I spent much of the day replaying the whole birth experience. What a life-changing day that was! For the most part, though, I was so thankful for our amazing first year with our lovely little boy. I hope that he knows that he is one of our greatest delights!

Here is a picture of Parker eating his first birthday cake. He wasn't so sure about the cake but he chose to pick the m&m's out of it. He sure impressed us with the fine mess he made.

I now give my mom a gift on my birthday, after seeing the birth of my kids i know who deserves a present on my birthday.

It was a great party. Parker did seem to know exactly what the day was all about.

A suggestion for your blog: turn on word verification for comments. That way you won't get comment spam.

Amy! I am so excited that you started a blog!!! And of course you can post pictures of Audrey (as long as I can post pictures of Parker on mine:)

Happy Birthday, Parker! I wish we could have been there to celebrate with you, but we'll see you in a week!

Hurray for my big sister! I am truly thrilled you have a blog now! However, I just want to let you know that I will still call you to discuss the little things like American Idol, and listen to Parker breath heavily on the phone! I love you Mimes.
