Peak of Chubbiness

Parker just went in for his 4 month appointment yesterday. Can you believe he is that old already? I try to hold on to every precious moment I have with him. The doctor, as always, was impressed with Parker's size and health. Now he is 17 lbs. 1 oz. (87th percentile) and 26 in. (86th percentile). At his two month appointment he was in the 95th percentile for both height and weight. He is leveling off. The doctor said that he has reached his peak of chubbiness and will start to thin out and become more "average" ... then Parker peed on him. (true story)

It is so much fun to see Parker learn and grow. He can grab objects now and immediately after he grabs something, he puts it in his mouth. It is easy to get him to laugh now which makes it that much more fun to play with him. He loves to "talk" and sometimes does it loudly during the most inopportune moments like sacrament meeting. We love his big smiles.

I decided I needed to take some pictures to show off Parker's chubbiness while it lasts. He is so handsome. His big beautiful blue eyes are striking and his hair is getting more red as he gets older. I know I posted a lot of pictures, but you should have seen how many I took. This is a small sampling.
