Parrish: 5 Months Tomorrow!

October has been a wild month for us...the time seems to have flown by....we can't believe that our baby boy is already 5 months old! The month has brought family to us and brought us to family. We spent the weekend Blanton was in school with all of the great-grands. We had a blast.

It was so sweet to watch Mamaw and Papaw get down on the floor to play with their boy! He was laughing and giggling at them. They hadn't seen him since August, so he really had changed on them!
Below, you will see the first Halloween surprise Parrish has gotten! His Aunt Nat and Uncle Dave made him a buck with Gerber's First Fruits! He has tried the apples and bananas so far....He spit those darn apples all over me!!!! But he has loved the bananas!

After spending Thursday night with Mamaw and Papaw, Parrish and I went to Waco! Aunt Roni and Cadence meet us at G-Nonnie's house! It was so much fun spending time with Nonnie, Roni, and the boys! I think Nonnie was in hog heaven with her two little great-grandboys! Nonnie hasn't seen Parrish since July, so the change in him was remarkable to her! During Hurricane Ike, Roni, Gma and Cadence stayed with G-Nonnie!

Roni and I wanted to get the boys pictures made in the pumpkin patch! Pepaw went to visit G-Nonnie the weekend before we were able to get there, so he scoped us out the perfect patch! Before the picture event, we had to go shopping and find the boys outfits to match! They were so darn cute! The front has a "BIG" dog and a "LITTLE" dog and says "Best Friends" on it! How perfect! We all know that Parrish loves having a little cousin! :o)

Peas, Green Beans, & Rice Oh My!!

Yes, folks you have read this title correctly! Parrish has ventured into the world of "solid" foods! I use the phrase lightly because to me it still looks pretty runny! ;o) He at his first "meal" on Saturday. Aunt Fran, Uncle Rick, Ashley, Brittany and Harley happened to be company for this GREAT milestone event! Below are some pictures of the monumental moment! We do hope you enjoy the journey.

Not so YUMMY Rice Cereal!

4 Months & Counting

My goodness how the time flies! Parrish is 4 months old! It has been an exciting month since I last had a chance to update our blog. With Parrish, Blanton, church and a full-time job, it has become hard to keep up with our blog...I always promise myself I will be better at posting wonderful and exciting events, but somehow I never get them on here! Below, you will find the journey through September and even through the first few days of October. Please enjoy the update on our precious blessing, Parrish!

The end of August held the birth of our sweet new cousin and nephew Cadence! After Cadence turned on week old, GMa came and met Parrish and me in San Antonio. I was invited to a sells conference to train to be a small group coach. This is a training required by all marketing managers and executive directors in my company. I will have the opportunity to travel to three different states in 2009 to coach these individuals in my company on the new concepts learned through the four day training. Below are pics of our trip. GMa and Parrish had a wonderful time...It was somewhat hard on Momma finding time to get Parrish the bottles he needed for the time with GMa!

Parrish has been doing a LOT of talking lately! I just had to put this little video on to show him humming and talking a little!

Parrish Showing His Lungs and Lunch

Parrish has been grabbing at anything he can get his hands around or near for that matter! His little fine motor skills are progressing along quite nicely! He loved to bite down on things. Dr. Yap says that Parrish has begun the road to teething!

Parrish has begun discovering his feet!

Grandmums and Auntie Heather came for a visit this month! It was so much fun! Debi bought Parrish his first Halloween outfit...he is going to be Tigger! Grandmums used to sing the Tigger song to Blanton all the time...We can wait to see him in that outfit...It has a built in belly, but I am sure Parrish wont need that help!

Parrish showed Momma and Daddy a brand new trick this week!!!! HE ROLLED OVER!!!! He is amazing us each and every day! Below are the pictures of him rolling over...they are before the roll, through the roll and the finished product. He is enjoying rolling from his stomach to his back!

After the roll!!!! YEAH!!!!!

Parrish got a new toy this past month! I walked into Granny's one day to take Parrish some of Momma's milk and he was sitting in an exersaucer! I couldn't believe my eyes! I came home and told Blanton that we needed to go and buy one! We found a Baby Einstein Exersaucer at Sam's and Parrish loves it! Below are a few pics of him playing and a video! I showed Parrish how to turn these three different things and my goodness, he did it by himself! I was so shocked. We were in the kitchen and I heard these rolling and had to take a video!

Parrish was so proud of himself! Look at that smile!

Sweet boy!

Parrish will begin the journey of eating real food...stayed tuned to find out how that is going!
