Really Parker? One year old already? I know everyone says this, but seriously, how did this happen so quickly? Here is the latest and greatest on Parker:
is enjoying books more again. Parker loves the texture of 'touch and feel' type books.
This one is for you Aunt Kristin ;) - Parker is sleeping great! 10-11 hours at night and 4 hours of naps during the day. We've had a few one nap days but I think he is going to be a two-naps-a-day kid for a while.
'talks' a lot and started making L sounds - lalalalalalalala! He also started pointing and grunting. No real words really - other than mama and dada. We have heard a few uh-oh's though.
pushes our hand away if we linger too long while putting food in front of him. :)
still has 5 teeth, but by the looks of his gums, and the constant drool, he is working on 4 more top teeth.
is playing a ton! Parker has started stacking blocks and cups and is starting to follow directions, like push the button, put the ball here, can I have a kiss? This month he started pushing/driving his toy cars around and buzzing his lips, making motor sounds. He also thinks it's funny to lay on the floor and play 'night, night'. Parker got a lot of great interactive toys for his birthday that he loves to play with.
can climb onto the couch. And the coffee table.
LOVES to dance and play peek-a-boo. He covers his eyes with his hands or small blanket, or sometimes hides behind furniture until he hears 'where's Parker?'
gives wet, open mouthed kisses.
likes to toss things down from the highchair / stroller / cart. Just for fun.
still uses his left hand most of the time.
can stand from a squatting position and is walking a ton! Not full time, but at least half of the time.
