Got the photos to work

Within ten minutes of when we arrived Friday, Parker, who had woken up running a fever, barfed and clung. His daddy cleaned it up and comforted him.

Get a little tylenol in him, though, and you’d never know he didn’t feel well, he was pure toddler running around with a grin.

Within a few hours he snuggled over next to me. I was smitten all over again–and then, just to make sure I knew the order of things, he pulled his daddy’s arm to come sit close on the other side. There. Love. Both sides.  Good. And in front, too, hi, Grandpa!

We got presented with a Parker doodle; after all, as Richard-the-younger teased me in a mock-accusatory tone, “He IS quarter hippy, y’know.”

Works for me.

Parker let us know he had the starving-artist thing down already.

First thing Sunday morning he was down that slide that had terrified  him the night before and was experimenting with the best ways to go and how to vary and control the speed. With his mommy or daddy right there, he can brave anything.

Parker was in a love sandwich; add in Grandpa and he’s completely surrounded!

That is one beautiful child! And I can feel the love in your posts. Watching Parker grow helps me imagine what Eliana would be up to at this age. Thank you!

What fun – minus the upchucking part.

Yay, Parker! He’s getting cuter by the photo session.

Oh, poor little guy. They do bounce back quickly at that age, though, thank heavens! So glad you’re having a good visit!

I knew that slide wouldn’t be empty for long! And, now I know why you’re a bit under the weather too…present from the grand-baby….

My heart sings for you and yours! I’m so happy Parker was able to enjoy the visit and the construction site. 🙂
