It's been too long since I sat down and wrote to you. I'm sorry. You're getting so big so quickly that by the end of the day I'm just beat!

Let's see, what are you up to lately? You're sitting up by yourself for minutes at a time. This is huge and wonderful. You're even able to play with toys while you're sitting up.

You're 'running your motor' constantly, consequently getting all of your clothes soaked with drool. I change your clothes multiple times a day. I gave up on bibs other than at mealtime a while back, you have plenty of clothes.

You're eating 2nd foods now. They are blends of fruits or veggies and they aren't pureed quite so much. You loved apples and strawberries- you ate that alone for breakfast today. You're eating oatmeal for breakfast with fruit, one or two veggies at lunch, and rice cereal with fruit for dinner. You're such a good eater!

You love rolling from your belly to your back. We're still working on back to belly. You'll get it in no time!

We're still working on getting you to sleep completely through the night, you generally are sleeping from 7 pm to 3 or 4 am. Your Daddy gets up with you and feeds you before he goes to work. He truly is wonderful.

We still have to get you napping in your bed. You don't even cry anymore at night (most nights). So we have to teach you that your bed is for daytime sleeping as well. I have a feeling that it might be a long and painful process like getting you to bed at night without crying... but we'll get through it. You are a smart and wonderful son, it will all make sense to you soon.

You still don't laugh a lot but you smile all the time so I'm okay just knowing that you're happy. But you'd better start laughing for me soon Buster! :)

I love you Parker!
