I'm freaking out that Parker will be a whole year old in a month.
Here's what he's up to this month:
-still squeezing into 12 month clothes, but transitioning to 18 month
-climbing stairs (the baby gate is in the mail!)
-eating lots of adult food
-throwing temper tantrums...all the time. the funniest is when he gets mad when I won't carry him from room to room and he has to crawl... he lays on the floor with his head in his arms and looks so pathetic
-unloading the dishwasher
-dancing to music
-participating more in storytime at the library (ie sitting and listening vs crawling around)
-getting along with the dog better... soft pets and bringing her dog toys
-aprox two naps a day if I'm lucky
-loves being read to, he will bring me a book if he wants me to read
-trying really hard to figure out stacking/nesting cups, and his little shape sorter. He looks so cute when he's concentrating.
Although its been a rough month with the addition of temper tantrums, its been so fun to watch him grow and develop. I'm feeling nostalgic with his birthday coming up. My little baby is going to be a toddler soon!

Regal Cinenmas is running a promotion this summer for $1 kids movies so I took Parker this morning. We saw the first half of Journey 2 Mysterious Island. He got scared during the movie so we had to leave early. Oh well, we were only out $1 (I didn't have to pay for him). It was fun while it lasted- he was so amazed when he first saw the giant movie screen. I tried to take some pictures of him at the theater, but he's either frowning or blurry. Overall it was a fun little outing!

Jon got a bike seat for Parker and they love to ride together! I swear, Jon's used that bike more in the past 3 days than he has in the past 3 years. I have a bike, too, so I went on their maiden voyage with them. I made it about a block and then died and haven't been out since. I'm glad the two of them have something to do together.

Short break from Parkers shenanegans...
I posted this quote in one of my online support groups for chronic pain. Within a few minutes, there were over 50 comments, mostly people saying really horrible things about me for posting about God. Someone came to my defense, and then the crazy people attacked them, too, saying that they (the mean crazy people) had freedom of speech to say nasty things to me. Talk about irony! Anyway, I left the group cause ain't nobody got time for that.
I don't know why, but this really upset me. It was kind of funny at first that people were wasting their time and energy that way, but as it went on I started feeling a little hurt. I know its silly.
Anyway. Overall I'm doing ok. :-)
