Pictures of P

My dear friend Sarah Moulton came to our house to take some pictures of Parker last week. It was so sweet of her to take time out of her busy schedule (she has a 3 years old and a 12 month old) to capture some sweet moments with our little guy. I wanted to use some of the pictures for his birth announcment (which is done and just needs to be mailed out). She did a fabulous job, and we will treasure these pictures for years. Here is a little montage of the pictures she took.

First Walk to the Park

We took our first walk to the park today. It was nice to get the boys outside before it got too warm. They did pretty well. Parker slept the whole time. Chase had fun at the park. It felt good to get some exercise. I walked a total of 2 miles. Yay!

Here are my cuties!!

Parker Robert Green

On July 2nd at 1:52 AM, we welcomed Parker Robert Green into our family. We are so grateful to the Lord for a perfectly healthy baby. The labor and delivery was a little rough, but he was SO worth it all.

Little P has been the perfect addition to our family. He has been such an easy baby so far. He eats well and sleeps lots. He even sleeps for long periods at night. I only wake up about once a night. He only cries if he is hungry or when we are changing his clothes or diapers. Abe keeps telling me not to get my heart set on the fact that he appears to be a mellow guy. That has been one of my constant prayer requests for the past 9 months. He keeps telling me that could change very quickly, but I am going to enjoy it while I can.

We are so very blessed! I am soaking in every minute because I learned the hard way with Chase that the baby days are so short and fly by so quickly. I am spending far less time on the computer which is why it has taken me so long to post this. I am just enjoying my boys.

Here are some things that I want to remember about Parker's first two weeks of life:
*He loves to sleep with his hands up by his face (especially his right hand)
*He does not like being cold. He loves being wrapped in a warm blanket.
*He has big hands and feet.
*He is long and lanky.
*His favorite activity is sleeping in his Boppy.
*He loves when Daddy rubs his legs. He sticks them straight out.
*He has a deep voice. He sounds like a growling little lion when he stretches or is hungry.
*He tries so hard to suck his thumb.
*He loves to be held.
