Parker's 1st trip to the dentist

I was so very proud of my little guy at the dentist. I have to say that he was much braver, and showed much less anxiety than his mother when she goes! He kicked back and watched Mickey Mouse with headphones. He never cried or even moved for that matter. Vickie, our dental hygienist, was awesome with him. She had names like Mr. Tickle and Mr. Thirsty for all the instruments. I don't know that I have ever met Mr. Tickle, maybe Mr. Scraper or Mr. Claw, but definitely not Mr. Tickle. Anyways, I am so glad that it was a good experience for Parker.

What a good sport!

Watching Mickey Mouse in his cool glasses.

"Mr. Tickle" cleaning his teeth with strawberry polish....mmmm!

Parker also went to see his pediatrician this week for his 3 year well visit, so he shouldn't have to go back for a while. Everything went great, especially since there weren't any shots involved. He did get a dose Flu Mist (nasal spray) instead of the flu shot this year. He didn't feel well for the next couple of days, but it will be worth it come flu season.

We also did some fun things this week. I really didn't want to spend my last week home with him going to the doctor all the time, so we made up for it by playing in his new frog pool, playing with the water house and sprinkler, going to the pool, etc....

Hugging his new frog pool. It has a sprinkler 
attached to it that Leo loves to play in as well.

More fun times in his pool.

We are working very hard to get Reese's nursery ready. We still have plenty of time until she's here, but since I go back to work Monday we are trying to get as much done as possible. I will be very little help once I am drained from being at work all day. Her furniture will be delivered tomorrow, so Chris is painting and installing a chair rail. I will post pictures when everything is ready.

Happy Birthday Parker!

Parker celebrated his 3rd birthday on Saturday, Aug. 9th at his Nana and Poppy's house. He had such a wonderful time with his friends and family. We set up a bounce house/waterslide, train amd kiddie pool. I'm sure all the kids were wiped out by the time they left....I know I was!! His actual birthday is today, so we took him to Wiggles Play Center and the mall in Frisco.  I wasn't the best photographer at his party, but here are some pictures that turned out OK. I have also added some pictures from his actual birthday. He celebrated it with Mom, Dad and Mimi. 

Parker's cupcakes! Not what I had originally planned, 
but they turned out cute.

Parker and Daddy singing Happy Birthday. Parker actually
 sang Happy Birthday to cute!

Chris driving some of the kids on the train. They loved the train!!

Grant and Parker sitting on Poppy's tractor.

I can't believe my little boy is 3 today! This is the cake he 
picked out. He could barely keep his fingers out of the icing!

Daddy took off work to spend the day with his little buddy!

Finally...time to blow out the candles! We made him take 
a million pictures, so he was ready to dig in.

Baby update - I am 31 weeks now.I went to the doctor last Thursday to have a sonogram. It was 3D which was awesome! I never had that option with Parker. You could see her precious little ear, nose and cheek from her right side. She weighs a little over 3 pounds. I can't wait to hold her. Parker is very excited to be a big brother, and I know that he will be the best one ever!

Busy week this week....Parker is going to the dentist for the first time tomorrow to get his teeth cleaned. He also has an appt. with his pediatrician Thursday for his 3 year exam. I don't think there are shots at this one. I sure hope not. :( The baby's furniture is also being delivered Thursday. As soon as Chris paints the nursery I will post some pictures of it. Time is flying by so fast that it's hard to get everything done. I also start back to work on Monday the 18th. I've had so much fun with Parker this summer. It's going to be hard to be away from him.
